You Know You're From Michigan When....

I'm away for couple of days, so here are two more from SafeTInspector's collection to keep you smiling!

You Know You're From Michigan When....

- You own only three spices - salt, pepper and ketchup

- You design your Halloween costumes to fit over a snowsuit

- You have more miles on your snow blower than your car

- You owe more money on your snowmobile than your car

- You have 10 favorite recipes for venison

- You think the start of deer hunting season is a national holiday

- You know which leaves make good toilet paper

- Home Depot on any Saturday is busier than the toy stores at Christmas

- Driving is better in the winter because the potholes get filled with snow

- You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightie with only 8 buttons

- The local paper covers national and international news on l/4 page, but requires 6 pages for sports

- The trunk of your car doubles as a deep freezer

- You attended a formal event in your best clothes, your finest jewelry and your snowmobile boots

- Shoveling the driveway constitutes a great upper body workout

- You know the 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter, and Construction.

- The municipality buys a zamboni before a bus

- You drink "Vernors" and play "Euchre"

- You actually 'get' these jokes, and forward them to all your Michigan friends

Where in the world can you be? Your post is over a day ahead of me. It is just now 6 hours into January 2nd in my reality. How'd I miss a day?

I recently thought about moving to Michigan after Katrina came through. (I wonder what day it is there.) It is so balmy where I am. My head has a 6-8 inch diameter of frizz around it. My hair would probably look very good there. Blonde afros are never attractive.

Never mind. I know how to change the date and time in a post now too. I accidentally found out this morning.

Hey, now I know how to not get my picture posted. Cool.

I am still Jupiter's Girl.

Janine - your skill grows daily! fancy swapping links yet?

Lindy - hope the vacation recharged your batteries to get through the winter.

I will probably get to putting in some links today, Jokemail. It has been on the low-priority end of my to-do list. I visited some of the links in your listing and enjoyed them immensely. It isn't that I suffer from self esteem issues, it's just that I prefer to harmonize with others and I have had enough persecution to last the rest of this life. When others' visit my blog - it will be because they have astrological and philosophical leanings. Laughter is my prescription for what ails.

I put my blog-address in an ad that will come out next week in an alternative journal in my area.
