    Default Stupid Life Milestone: Pennsylvania: 20 years!

    Stupid Life Milestone: Pennsylvania: 20 years!

    Today marks my 20 year old arrival in Philadelphia, PA.

    From California, a couple things that took me by surprise:

    1. White coloredAmerican processed cheese.
    2. Soft pretzels with mustard.
    3. No alcohol sold in supermarkets.
    4. Cheesesteaks
    5. Spoken "Down the shore" vs. "Hit the beach."
    6. Distance vs. speed travel estimations.
    7. No alcohol sold on Sunday!
    8. Having to wait until 1:00 AM for Sunday NFL football.
    9. Having to wait until 9:00 PM for Monday NFL night football vs. 6:00 PM
    in CA.
    10. Having to keep a keg cold (see 7) overnight for Sunday NFL football,
    causing Saturday night parties.

    I used to be able to fall out of bed at 9 AM in L.A. on Sunday, for beer
    or breakfast (flip a coin) and watch NFL football TV at 10 AM. Here in
    PA, I gotta sit around until. 1 AM.

    Thanks, Pennsylvania. You changed my life!

    The East Coast SUCKS!!! Not to mention the Philadelphia Eagles are, how
    shall I say it? Losers!!!!!!

    I'll bet #7 was the hardest one for you. BTW...you still fall out of
    bed, drunk.

    Why did you move? Having a choice, I'd be in CA...

    California afforded us a $250k 2
    bedroom condo with a parking lot
    view.

    Pennsylvania afforded us a $250k
    two acres of white pines and a
    five story house.

    A no-brainer!

    Best,

    Andy

    Shut up! Just shut up!!

    Do you know what it's like to be in a really miserable place for twelve
    years, unable to leave because your family needs you, then your kid's in
    the last years of high school and doesn't want to change, then you can't
    get the wherewithal together to leave because your jobs been axed and
    your income went with it, and disability is eating you alive and the
    climate you live in is so polluted that it exacerbates your disability
    all the time and you're forced to live on daily steroids and
    anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator treatments around the clock? Do you
    know what that's like? Where whenever the wind blows it carries the dry
    dusty local terrain right into our lungs? Where during the winter,
    inversion holds a cloud of noxious pudding close to the ground for
    everyone to breathe, and during the summer high temperatures cook up
    enough ground level ozone to put me into respiratory failure in the
    course of a single afternoon? Do you have any idea what this is like?
    Shut up!

    And by the way, you don't have to wait until "1 A.M." to watch your
    precious game. The time difference between PA and CA is only three
    hours, so you wait until 1 PM, dildo brain.

    That's another thing that wrong with the West, too. Everything on TV
    starts at 8 AM, commutes to work start at 4:30 AM and the day is over
    with everybody a-bed by 9 PM. What fraggin' deathly BORING people these are!

    On the whole, I rather be in Philadelphia!!

    I just watched a movie on cable called "Big Fan"; the plot centers on
    a fued between a NY Giants fan and any a Philly Eagles fan.

    An interesting twist or two, but insightful into east coast football
    mentality.

    You have to parse the phrase correctly. In this case it means a milestone in
    a stupid life.
