As some of you know...I'm a recent transplant to California from the REAL East Coast (ie: states that border the Atlantic), RI to be exact. I swear this is all true!

Quoted by actual Californians:

"You're from Rhode Island...I hear traffic here still isn't as bad as New York's." (huh?!?)

On childhood camping trips to Vermont: "That's near where you lived in Virginia, right?"

On debating whether or not to fly into Boston or Providence: "Well if you fly into Boston
you could take some extra time and see the Lincoln memorial and stuff..."

"Oh you're from 'Back East'? I've got family 'Back East'." Me: "Oh really? Where abouts?"
Him: "Chicago."
