today is pennsylvania day on espn’s 50 states, 50 days. i don’t really know what that is (or care!), & only know about it because my dad sent an email around…he’s the type who will send those lame jokes, 100 questions about me, send this to 100 people or you will die a horrible death, etc. type emails. so because i’m too lazy to actually write something, i’m going to post it! not the whole thing, though, only the ones that i like.


WELCOME TO PENNSYLVANIA

where every highway eventually narrows to a single lane . . . or is DETOURED

** Our seasons (2) are winter and construction **

State Motto

You Know You’re From or In Pennsylvania If:

  • You refer to Pennsylvania as “PA” (pronounced Pee-ay). How many other states do that?
  • When you go to the Jersey beaches it is called going to the “shore.”
  • The first day of buck and the first day of doe season are school holidays. (true!)
  • You can use the phrase “fire hall wedding reception” and not even bat an eye. (been to one!)
  • You know what a “State Store” is, and your out of state friends find it incredulous that you can’t purchase liquor at the mini-mart.
  • Words like “hoagie”, “crick”, “chipped ham”, “sticky buns”, “shoo-fly pie”, and “pocketbook” actually mean something to you.
  • You know that Blue Ball, Intercourse, Climax, Bird-in-Hand, Beaver, Moon, Virginville, Paradise, Mars, and Slippery Rock are PA towns.
  • You know several people who have hit deer more than once.
  • Driving is always better in winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
  • You learned to pronounce Bryn Mawr, Wilkes-Barre, Schuylkill, Bala Cynwyd, Conshohocken, & Monongahela and Perkasie. (i still don’t know how to pronounce most of these!)

ok that’s enough pennsylvania-ness for you.
