You Know You're From Rochester When...

This list is complied from random web sites...

The worst four-letter word you could say is "Fuji".

It's a disgrace to buy Fuji products.

The name "Greater Rochester International Airport" is bigger than the airport itself.

You know that a "Can of Worms" is not something that you take fishing.

It can be 70 degrees one day, below freezing the next, and you think nothing of it.

Your low-fat diet is never low enough to exclude an Abbott's custard.

You order a white hot and a pop, and the counterman knows what you're talking about.

You define summer as three months of bad sledding.

Wegmans is somewhere to go on a Friday night, for entertainment.

You can go to any mall on Saturday and see at least 5 people you either work with, went to school with or dated.

Halloween is snowed out with great regularity

You can travel from Egypt to Greece in about a half-hour by car.

You can't swim at the beach.

The thought of eating a "garbage plate" makes your mouth water.

Your idea of a seven-course meal is a six pack of Genny and a bucket of Buffalo wings.

You bake with soda and drink pop.

You define candy on a stick as sucker and a hapless, hopeless individual as a moron.

From May to October there is a festival every weekend celebrating a different fruit, vegetable, or agricultural product, but absolutely nothing happening the remainder of the year.

You can accurately judge people as to their social status by determining which Wegmans store they shop at.

18+ inches of snow falls overnight, but you never thought of NOT going to work.

You can compare Nick Tahoe's garbage plate to at least 3 other knock-offs in competing restaurants.

Your year has two seasons: Winter and Construction.

Half the change in your pocket is Canadian, eh.

Toronto is about 70 miles away, but it takes about three hours to get there.

In a city where it snows at least 90 inches a year, they build a new sports stadium with no roof on it.

You and the cat are peacefully napping in front of the TV set, with the volume at a comfortable level, and a Gabriele Ford commercial comes on at twice the decibel level, causing you to bolt upright and the cat to leave gouge marks in your lap.

You know who Vinnie and Angelo are.

Any new construction project downtown that comprises over ten stories is worthy of a detailed front-page account in the newspaper

A building with a statue of a guy with wings on the top of it is not unusual to you

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
