You Know You're
From Alabama...

The google thing that's goin' around:

...if you've used the phrases "fixin' to," "might could," or "usetacould" during the last twenty four hours.

...if someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.

...if you know the meaning of the phrase "Fobbed again."

...if you can properly pronounce Eufaula, Opelika, and Oneonta, as well as Bayou La Batre and Lafayette.

...if you know that the Talladega 500 is the biggest sporting event of any sort during the entire year.

...if you know exactly what chitlins and mountain oysters are, and you know someone who eats them anyway.

...if you can recall hot summers by the year they happened easier than you can remember your mother's birthday.

...if you think that people who complain about the humidity in their states are sissies.

...if you know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door but by the availability of shade.

...if you have owned, as your primary form of transportation, at least one vehicle that would never be able to pass any form of a safety inspection.

...if your "place at the lake" has wheels under it.

...if you aren't surprised to find rental movies, groceries, ammunition and bait all in the same store.

...if you realize that a Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol, but know in your heart that a Ford F150 4x4 is.

...if you've missed a wedding or a funeral to go to a football game.

...if a tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel cloud.


You know you're from Alabama if your porch collapses, and kills at least five dogs. Heh. Now THAT'S WHAT this list SHOULD be.

...if you've missed a wedding or a funeral to go to a football game.

My sister's wedding was planned around the football schedule. (My grandfather is a huge Alabama fan, Her (ex)husband's whole family is Auburn fans)... but then again the wedding took place that the church across from Auburn University so I guess it would have sucked if there had been a game that weekend.

Re: Ahahahahaa!!!
Ack. I'm sorry. I honestly had NO IDEA :/ Now I feel like a dork for asking. Doh.

OMG, Adele and I took our icecream cake and sat on the deck, while the wind whipped our hair across our faces, the sky turning an ominous dark gray. It just now started raining. I LOVE IT!!! :-D

Re: Ahahahahaa!!!
Yea, that was one bet I wish I had not won. (I said I give them 2 years max) :/

I think I might sit outside until it starts raining here.

Re: Ahahahahaa!!!
We just came in, and suddenly...silence. Totally still. Methinks there might be a tornado approaching. Accccccccccccck. :) Still, it's cool nonetheless. :)

Re: Ahahahahaa!!!
Now would be a good time to call your mom and tell her to go outside and watch for houses.

(Unless she lives in another town, then ignore the cheap joke)

Re: Ahahahahaa!!!
Heh. She lives about 45 minutes' away from here. Blehhhh. Otherwise...yeah, you know :)

Hey Babe! Off topic: What is the code to make the words all spark-ly like for a Happy Birthday? I can't figure it out!

Eye see, Open your eyes
Creeping Through The Cellar Door

Latest Month

June 2019


Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
