Default You know your from California if....

when you have a pre-made sign ready to stick in the window to close quickly in case of earthquake.

Everyone who lives here knows that hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and snowstorms are way worse than earthquakes, which are, after all, over almost as soon as you realize what's happening.

You say "like" and "for sure" and "right on" and "dude" and "totally" and "peace out" and "chill" and "tight" and "bro" and "hell of" and "hella"(Nor Cal only) and "faded" and "stoked" and "fo sho" and you say them often

You know what real cheese taste like.

Two overcast days in a row drive you mad.

You don't get snowdays off because theres only snow in Mammoth, Tahoe, Shasta, and Big Bear.

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

You can wear sandals all year long.

Even if the store is across the street, you drive there.

You know 65 mph really means 100.

When someone cuts you off, they get the horn and the finger and high speed chase cuz we dont mess around on the road.

We don't stop at stop signs... we do a "california roll"

You can get fresh and REAL Mexican food 24 hours a day.

All the TV shows you "other" states watch get filmed here.

We have In-N-Out (Arizona and Vegas are lucky we share that with them).

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

The fastest part of your commute is down your driveway.

Your sense of direction=Toward the ocean and away from the ocean.

The primary bugs that you worry about are electronic.

Your monthly house payments exceed your annual income.

You can't find your other earring because your son/brother is wearing it.

Your family tree contains "significant others."

You see 25 lawyers chasing an ambulance.

More than clothes come out of the closets.

More money is spent on facelifts than on diapers.

You pack shorts and a T-shirt for skiing in the snow, and a sweater and a wetsuit for the beach.

Your children learn to walk in Birkenstocks.

You'll reluctantly miss yoga class to wait for the hot tub repairman.

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

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

Your coworker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.

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

You don't care what race people are because you're too busy wondering what gender they are.

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

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

A low speed police pursuit will interrupt ANY TV broadcast.

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

The guy at 8:30 am at Starbucks wearing the baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney IS George Clooney.

Both you AND your dog have therapists.

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

Your child's third grade teacher has purple hair, nose ring, and name is Breeze.

Hey... is pot legal?

One part age; three parts liquor!

Born and raised in CA. Got out when I was 17, because all the above are so true.
