    You know you're from California if....

    1. Your co-worker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.

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

    3. You take a bus and are shocked at two people carrying on a conversation in English.

    4. Your child's 3rd-grade teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and is named Flower.

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

    6. You've been to a baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm donor.

    7. You have a very strong opinion about where your coffee beans are grown, and you can taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.

    8. You can't remember . . . Is pot legal?

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

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

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

    12. Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.

    13. You can't remember .. . . Is pot illegal or legal?

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

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

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

    17. HEY!!!! Is pot illegal????

    18. Both you AND your dog have therapists, psychics, personal trainers and cosmetic surgeons.

    19. The Terminator is/was your governor.

    20. If you drive illegally, they take your driver's license. If you're here illegally, they give you one.

    21. It's 50 degrees F in January and you complain that it's too cold.

    22. It's 80 degrees F in July and you complain that it's too hot.

    23. Your two favorite complaints (aside from the weather) are that (a) Taxes are too high, and (b) Government doesn't care enough for the little guy.

    I can relate to most of those, except in the Central Valley, if it's 80 degrees in July, we call it a cold front.

    Oh, and if you make 300 grand a year, buying a house is no problem since they cost about half what they did before the housing bubble burst.

    Is pot illegal? Must be, if our prisons are so full of drug dealers that there is no room for car thieves.

    Out of those, I do see smog.

    Californians don't trust air we can't see, after all.
