lol I am so guilty of the Midwest preposition thing!!!!!!! And well, I'm from the midwest.

The Washington one really only applies to the west side of the state.

I wanna live in Arizon - dry heat, yeah! You can have a pool in Arizona right? It's probably lizards and such that would send me packing.

Canadian - we have lots of these, I should go find them so I can play although I believe some of the Maine stuff is us. And just so you know, my flannel jammies are SEXY! Oh, and I have never had moose, nor do I want to. But the season - yeah. I told dh I wanted to move south and live on a beach. So far, he is ignoring me. I hate winter and this past one was brutal but this summer and the major heat wave ROCKS!

Thanks for the fun

Allison Brennan said...

I live in California, and that's pretty accurate!

Seriously, I didn't know eating artichokes was a California thing. They've been my favorite veggie since I was a kid, LOL

The NYC one is pretty accurate too, that's what I thought was so funny.
