Weblogs: You know you're a Houstonian if...

(via MeMo)

You moved to Houston a while ago. How do you know you've settled in? Here are the telltale signs:

1. Your house of worship has more than 5,000 members or fewer than 100.

2. You've gone to a check-cashing place. Extra point if they know your first name at the check-cashing place.

3. You've given away a litter of something. Extra point if it wasn't puppies or kittens.

4. Your other car is in the impound lot.

5. In your house, Dr Pepper is now a breakfast drink

6. You've chosen between burnt orange and maroon.

7. The idea of dove season doesn't strike you as entirely weird.

8. You track storms across Harris County on your PC.

9. If you live in the city:
One of your neighbors drives a Porsche Cayenne and the other repairs washing machines. In his front yard.

If you live in the 'burbs: Your children know "cul-de-sac" but not "hill".

If you live way out beyond the Beltway:
You've hurt your back dragging a deer carcass.

10. You've bought fire ant stuff at Home Depot more than once.

11. You can recite all your subdivision deed restrictions but you've forgotten all the Amendments except the Second.

12. You no longer trust a man who drinks from a glass.

How'd you do?

1-5 points. Check your cellphone. Your blue state is calling you.

6-9 points. You just scraped the John Kerry sticker off the back of your Prius.

10-14 points. Compared to the state flag, the Stars and Stripes now look too busy.

what a beautifull world u have
My candle burns at both ends;‎
It will not last the night;‎
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends – ‎
It gives a lovely light!‎
