things I've learned since moving to boston: 1


Smiling and saying "We're Southerners" will get you anywhere, even if you're actually from the snowy Pennsylvania countryside and didn't venture south of the Mason-Dixon line until you were 20.

  1. I *want* your hair.

    That is all.

  2. Yep. You just can't go wrong with flashing around that "Southern Charm", even if it is imaginary. Just thinking about meeting a Southerner makes me want to go around saying "y'all" and then have me some grits and collared greens...

  4. Gnetch: I *want* your face. But not like in a creepy Hannibal kinda way. More like a "I wish I was all cute and shit" kinda way.

    Candice: I prefer to think of it as "learned" rather than "imaginary."

    Oh, who the hell am I kidding. It's imaginary.

    Kat-- I think it may be more to do with the fact that we don't say "wicked" every three seconds. =) True story, though, no one says wicked here unless they're making fun of people who say wicked.

  5. What do you mean Just from Pa? That IS the south. Take if from me a RI/FLA girl. The RI in me says anything south of CT. is SOUTH and the FLA in me says anything north of NC is NORTH.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT insult the food or the Sox.

  6. Take advantage of anything you can. Makes things easier.

  7. I didn't think Bostonians thought in terms of North South or West - I thought they were "Boston" & "Not-From-Boston".

    Hmmm. the things you learn on the internet.
