You Know You Are From Washington When…

  1. Eating seafood isn’t anything special.
  2. The sight of Mt. Rainier is still awe inspiring.
  3. You can drive from your home to a lake, a river or the Puget Sound in 20 minutes or less.
  4. You only visit the Space Needle if you need someplace to take out of town guests.
  5. You or someone you know works at Boeing or Microsoft.
  6. You know more than 10 ways to order coffee.
  7. You measure distance in hours.
  8. You can’t make it two blocks without seeing a Starbucks.
  9. You know how to pronounce geoduck and know that it doesn’t quack or have feathers.
  10. You can tell the difference between Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean and Thai food.  (I’m not sure why this is here, since it’s hard to find really great Asian restaurants in Seattle)
  11. You can taste the difference between Starbucks, Seattle’s Best and Tully’s.
  12. It’s not a real mountain unless it has snow and has erupted within the last 200 years.
  13. You go to work in the dark and come home in the dark even though you only have an 8 hour workday.

  16. You’ve used every setting on your intermittent wipers.
  17. You can endure 100 days of rain and wind but an inch of snow means school cancellations.

  1. How about this one?

    “You knew immediately that the view out of Frasier’s window was fake.”

  2. Oh man, I thank god for my intermittent wipers.

    You know I was stuck in traffic for one and a half hours on an on-ramp yesterday? Just on the ramp itself. Not the actual freeway part. Ridiculous.

  3. Jack >> Man, whereabouts was that hold-up on the ramp? I’ll have to make sure to avoid that one.

    Justinder >> Sorry babe, I never watched Frasier so I can’t relate 😛 Was Seattle supposed to be the backdrop city for Frasier?
