not a thing to say

Too much dust to the brain has rendered me speechless so I'm taking my cue from The Blonde Librarian who did one of those funny "You know you're from..." memes the other day. I had already done a similar one on British Columbia a while ago but I found a few more interesting tidbits:

You know you're from Vancouver when...

1. you make over $250,000 a year and still can't afford a house.
2. your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.
3. you're sure you're the only one on the road with a REAL driver's license.
4. a really great parking space can move you to tears.
5. you know what these acronyms mean: PNE, VPL, GVRD, YVR.
6. you can pronounce Coquihalla, Osoyoos, Squamish and Nanaimo
7. you pass an elementary school and the children are all busy with their cell phones or pagers while waiting for their personal rides home.
8. you feel guilty throwing aluminum cans or paper in the trash.
9. your co-worker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.
10.your hairdresser is straight, your plumber is gay, the woman who delivers your mail is into BDSM, and your next door neighbour grows weed.
11. you cant remember.... is pot still illegal?
12. a man gets on the bus in full leather regalia and crotchless chaps; you don't even notice.
13. you realize there are far more rainbow flags in the city than Canadian flags.
14. the gym is packed at 3 PM ....on a work day.
15. you can tell the difference between Japanese, Chinese and Thai food.
16. you had a California roll for lunch.
17. you watch the weather from a Seattle TV station because it's more accurate.
18. you don't even listen any more when the forecast announces "chance of showers."
19. a day of snowfall makes you consider not going to school/work.
20. you know more than 10 ways to order coffee.
21. you can taste the difference between Starbucks, Second Cup, and Tim Hortons.
22. the guy at 8:30 a.m. at Starbucks wearing the baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney IS George Clooney.

sounds like san franscisco minus george clooney and the indian names and the seattle part and the snow part. If it snowed in SF, people would start praying to jesus because the end would be near.

Yes, George Clooney! Vancouver is city to the stars, you know. It's because it's much cheaper to make movies there than in the U.S. and the scenery lends itself to all sorts of scenarios. My parents' back fence was in a movie once.
