    1. Your co-worker has 8 bodypiercings and none of them 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 having a conversation in English.

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

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

    6. You've been to a baby shower that has 2 mothers and a sperm donor.

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

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

    9. A really great parking spot 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 8:30am at Starbuck's wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses that 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 outside 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 and pagers.

    :lol:
    * You go to the store in the middle of the day on a weekday, and it's crowded.

    * You have helicopters flying over you at night, even though you live in a decent neighborhood (or for the rent you pay, you'd be in a very nice neighborhood anywhere else!)

    But, on the other hand, it's sunny and nice outside in February!
    You can walk most days.
    The beach is right there!
    You don't have to fit into such a small box.
    There's LOTS of dancing!
    Lots of good coaches!
    Lots of studios!
    :p

    I see she left off the one that says "...your plumber is gay and your hairdresser is straight." :) I guess that makes more sense if you read it "You know you're in California" though.

    You know you're in California when you start jumping in your car to drive three blocks to pick up something from the Quiki Mart.

    . . . when you keep five copies of your screenplay in your car.

    . . . when the driver in front of you is banging his head between his hands while driving, and you don't think that's abnormal.

    . . . when the homeless guy on the corner asking for money is wearing new Nikes, has a brand new parka, and has a shiny 10-speed bicycle.

    . . . when your 14 year old son spikes his hair and you don't even bat an eye.

    . . . when your waiter brings you the credit charge slip for your autograph, and you do a double take, and ask for his/hers.

    . . . when your best friend announces she having twins and has an agent lined up even before she's picked out the baby furniture for the nursery.

    And you know you're in LOS ANGELES when the movie ends and NOT ONE PERSON GETS UP AND LEAVES THE THEATER BECAUSE THEY ARE ACTUALLY READING THE END CREDITS, and NOBODY LEAVES until the IATSE bug is displayed!!!

    Actually, he has eleven . . .

    WE finally can afford a condo . . .

    I didn't take anything!!!!!

    His name is Tiffani . . .

    Pot is legal . . . it's Extasy that is illegal!

    Yes, I was there with both mothers.

    Sensimillian is even better.

    Pot is illegal, and Extasy is legal.

    Yea . . . one within a half-an-hour walk to our commuter train would get me to tears!

    Sorry, I drive an electric Honda that costs about $1300 a month to charge up every night.

    Yea, but we make him get in line with us at around 7:00 AM . . .

    So, what's your point?

    What's pot???

    Of course . . . we hate to get up and go inside . . . we don't want to get while outside by the pool getting a tan!

    So, what else do give an eight-year old for his birthday???

    Yes, those damn out-of-staters can't drive in extremely bad weather!

    z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z. . . um, oh, sorry. That last "cigarette" made me sleepy . . . and hungry!

    But the dog pays twice as much . . . it's female!

    Arnie is now called the "Governator" . . . get with the times!

    No speaka da-Englis . . .
