    You know you're in California if:

    1. Your coworker has 8 body piercing's and none
    are visible.

    2. You make over $300,000 and still can't afford
    a house.

    3. You take a bus and are shocked at two people
    carrying on a conversation in English.

    4. Your child's 3rd grade teacher has purple hair,
    a nose ring, and is named Flower.

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

    6. You've been to a baby shower that has two
    mothers and a sperm donor.

    7. You have a very strong opinion about where your
    coffee beans are grown, and you can taste the
    difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.

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

    9. A really great parking space can totally move
    you to tears.

    10. Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere
    else in the U.S.

    11. Unlike back home, the guy at 8:30 am at
    Starbucks wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses
    who looks like George Clooney really IS George
    Clooney.

    12. Your car insurance costs as much as your
    house payment.

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

    14. It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on
    every news station: "STORM WATCH."

    15. You pass an elementary school playground and
    the children are all busy with their cells or pagers.

    16. It's barely sprinkling rain outside, so you leave
    for work an hour early to avoid all the weather-
    related accidents.

    17. HEY!!!! Is pot illegal????

    18. Both you AND your dog have therapists.

    19. The Terminator is your governor.

    20. If you drive illegally, they take your driver's license.
    If you're here illegally, they want to give you one!!!

    Sure signs you are in the Los Angeles/Orange County area:

    **You go to a high school and the kids driver nicer cars than the teachers

    **there is a huge traffic jam anyplace, at any time, for no reason at all

    **if it's not a major earthquake, it's not really an earthquake

    **Seasonal changes include mudslides and forest fires

    **No one cares about anything

    -----------------

    How to tell you are in a "better" part of LA/OC:

    **More people speak English than Spanish

    **People start complaining about Bush instead of Fox

    **People are driving cars instead of walking

    **If you spot six Latinos standing on a street corner in a poor neighborhood, it's usually a gang. In a rich neighborhood, it is usually the help waiting for their rides.
