Haha. I like the one about Fauquier County. I used to hate them growing up cause they got off school even if there was a light dusting of snow on the ground. Then in college, one of my roommates was from Fauquier County. I saw where he lived, and I realized why they would have to close school. Fucking nothing but back woods little dirt roads.

I still get lost on the fawking beltway! Maybe it is because I never drive and we don't have stupid round abouts and beltways in the West. Grrrr!

But, the part about being 10min from everything is sooo true! When I lived in Seattle - it always took at least 1/2 hour, sometimes more to get where you needed to go. Now I get all bent out of shape if it takes more than 15 minutes!

:laugh:

And that picture is hilarious!!!!
