    phone.

    4. You speak Spanish, but you're not Mexican.

    5. You begin to "lie" to your friends about how close you are when you
    know damn well that it'll take you at least an hour to get there (see
    below**).
    **Getting anywhere from point A to point B, no matter what the
    distance, takes about "twenty minutes".

    6. You drive to your neighborhood block party.

    7. In the "winter", you can go to the beach and ski at Big Bear on the
    same day.

    8. You eat a different ethnic food for every meal.

    9. If your destination is more than 5 minutes away on foot, you're
    definitely driving.

    10. Calling your neighbors requires knowing their area code.

    11. You know what In N Out is and feel bad for all the other states
    because they don't have any.

    12. You don't stop at a STOP sign, you do a California Roll.

    13. You really can never be too rich or too thin or too tan.

    14. You've partied in Tijuana at least 3 times... You don't remember at
    least 1 of them.

    15. You go to a tanning salon before going to the beach.

    20. You know who the tinsel underwear dude in Venice Beach is.

    21. You classify new people you meet by their Area Code. An "818" would
    never date a "562" and anyone from "323" or "213" is ghetto/second
    class. Best area code: "714." Nobody likes anyone from the "909"
    because it stinks there.

    22. You call 911 and they put you on hold.

    23. You have a gym membership because it's mandatory.

    24. The gym is packed at 3pm...on a workday.

    25. You think you are better than the people who live "Over the Hill".
    It doesn't matter which side of the hill you are currently residing,
    you are just better than them, for whatever reason.

    26. You know that if you drive two miles in any direction you will find
    a McDonald's or a Starbucks.

    27. You know what "sigalert", "PCH", and "the five" mean.

    28. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?

    29. It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news
    station: "STORM WATCH"

    30. The Terminator is your governor.

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

    I kid you not, Bakersfield is having it's first "storm" of the season, and we're already on flash flood/urban & small stream flood advisory warnings.

    It started to rain heavily around 5:30today, one of our Day Care parents walked in and said "there's a five car pile up, EMT is on it's way right now"
    We left work and immediately saw another car accident right outside of the neighborhood.

    In the '60s, we lived in 213, but Torrance changed sometime to 310, so I guess my past is still okay. ;-)

    Oh... And don't forget the Costumed Thong Guy on Pacific Beach. Everyone knows him, too... Hee hee hee hee...

    There's just something about the air in LA. After a certain ammount of time, you get to the point where you can't trust air you can't see.

    33. Local schools never close for snow days, but seem to have several fire days each year.

    34. Water comes out of the faucet in your home, but you would never think of drinking it. That's what bottles are for!
