    You know you're from So-Cal when...

    Thought you guys would enjoy them...
    Happy Thursday!


    YOU KNOW YOUR FROM SO-CAL WHEN…

    The fastest part of your commute is down your driveway.

    You go to the beach and see that real lifeguards actually do look like the lifeguards from Baywatch

    Your monthly house payments exceed your annual income.

    You drive next to a Rolls Royce and don't notice.

    You begin to "lie" to your friends about where you are (i.e. "Yeah I'm like 20 minutes away") - when you know that it'll take you at least an hour to get there).

    You drive to your neighborhood block party.

    You don't exterminate your roaches, you smoke them.

    In the "winter", you can go to the beach and ski at Big Bear on the same day.

    You eat a different ethnic food for every meal

    If your destination is more than 5 minutes away on foot, you're definitely driving.

    Calling your neighbors requires knowing their area code.

    You know what In N Out is and feel bad for all the other states because they don't have any.

    You don't stop at a STOP sign, you do a California Roll.

    You really can never be too rich or too thin.

    You've partied in Tijuana at least once.

    You go to a tanning salon before going to the beach.

    You eat pineapple on pizza.

    Your cell phone has left a permanent impression on the side of your head.

    You think that Venice is a beach.

    The waitress asks if you'd like "carbs" in your meal.

    You mourned for Tupac and not for Biggie

    You call 911 and they put you on hold.

    You have a gym membership because it's mandatory.

    The gym is packed at 3pm...on a workday.

    You think you are better than the people who live "Over the Hill". It don't matter which side of the hill you are currently residing, you are just better than them, for whatever reason.

    You know that if you drive two miles in any direction you will find a McDonald's or a Starbucks.

    You know what "sigalert", "PCH", and "the five" mean.

    Getting anywhere from point A to point B, no matter what the distance, takes about "twenty minutes".

    The Terminator is your governor.

    You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?

    It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news station: "STORM WATCH"
    A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes....

    *sigh*
    Yes.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    YESSSSSSS! I think "You say Hella out of the state and nobody knows what you mean" Should be added I've had that one happen WAAAY too many times.

It makes for a healthier and happier you which makes everything else you do better.

    You know you're from SoCal (at least the Los Angeles area) when you hit 20MPH on the freeway and think, "OK... now we're flying!"

    You know you live in LA when everybody is fighting for a parking stall near the front door BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO LAZY TO WALK ...... in the meantime ... parking galore .. just a hundred feet away!

    I see this every time I go to Costco in the Glendale/Atwater location - It's just a hoot!
