My angst tastes like...
Find your angst's flavor

You Know You're From Tennessee When...

You've never met any celebrities....other than Fred Thompson. (I met Butch Patrick, the guy who played the kid on the Munsters! :D ...Who's Fred Thompson?)

"Vacation" means going to the family reunion. (Vacation means vacation :P.)

You know all 4 seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer and Christmas. (Too true XD Though I'd add a fourth season in there, Halloween.)

You laugh when people from anywhere north of TN tries to say or spell "y'all" (giggle)

It's "Mar-vull" not "Mary-ville" (Never even heard of this town O_o)

It's "Knox-vull" not "Knox-ville" (I don't say it like that...do I?)

A tabogan is a hat, not a sled. (? O_O)

You butter your hot biscuit by cutting it open, putting a slab of butter inside and closing it back up again. (Dear sweet Tallest YES. There is NO OTHER WAY to butter a biscuit. And they have to be hot, right out of the oven. And preferably had tons of butter already baked into the batter.)

Every town in East Tennesse has a "strip" and they're not particularly safe to be in at night. (?)

Pigeon Forge is not pronounced with a French accent. (Pigeon Forge has rollercoasters :) )

Gatlinburg does have an "L" in it and it should be pronounced. (Gatlinburg's a beautiful, fun town. More t-shirt shops on one street than you'll see the rest of your life. Perfect vacation spot!)

Sales tax is 9.5%. (8.25%!)

You shop at Walmart for groceries, not at a grocery store. (Fuck no. Kroger's or, crap, what was the other one I started going to...)

You don't drive in Knoxville on game-day. EVER. (Never been to Knoxville, but I've heard stories...)

You or your friends chew. (Eeeeew XD. I don't, but a few of my relatives probably do. Most of them just smoke though.)

You can't remember the last time you saw snow. (Sad but true. There was no snow in Memphis, merely sleet, hail, ice storms, and freezing temperatures without the reward of snow. ;_; Okay, wait, there was snow in Gatlinburg. But only because of the mountains.)

You have a "piss on" sticker on your car window (I hate those things :P)

You know when Elvis Presley Day is

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Tennessee.

I'd post the CA one too but most of those don't apply to me. Yet.

Much happened on the trip that I will speak of later. But for now, I must go get ready to hound Blockbusters for a job again, and try to figure out how to pay my bills when I have no money. Ja matta ne!

There's another way to butter a biscuit? o.O I don't even like biscuits, but if I did, I'd surely cut it in half and put the butter in the middle. >_> Just like I do with bread!

Well, there is another way to butter a biscuit, but it involves honey too. I love to mix butter and honey into one big gloppy mess and then dip a biscuit into it.

And I think Fred Thompson is a politician. Maybe.

Oh, and I have heard of Maryville, though I end up pronouncing it "Mare-vull"

Never been to Knoxville on game day either, but I have been on the interstate after a game and that traffic is scary enough. O_O

Sadly, I get most of these. Gues it's obvious I'm from around here! XD

Tonberries are scary.

...I don't butter my biscuits. Hee, that sounded dirty. BUT!! when I have hot things (like a potato) and I want to put stuff inside (like cheese) I do cut it open, stick it in and then close it again. Wow, again with the dirtiness. Oh well, it's later (early?) and I'm feeling perverted I guess.

<3 Tif!! Welcome home. ^_^
