Well, I am moving to Rhode Island from PA in 10 months.... so I think I can get the hang of all of this!!!!! (esp. since I am originally from NH).

GO Rhode Island!

VE said...

Is it really an Island? And if there are so many roads, why don't they call it Rhodes Island?

Jimmies. The real Vermonters do that too. I hate that.

Nobody™ said...

Jimmies? WTF?

In Wisconsin they call a drinking fountain a "bubbler". I'm not sure which is stranger.

I've been in some small towns in Iowa that I could buy with what I carry in my pocket, and I rarely have mroe than $10 on me.
