since we're on the trend...<br><br>
i love these <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><ul><li>You make $30,000 a year, yet still can't find a place to live.<br></li>
<li>Two-thirds of the people you know are not from Oregon. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(true - they're from Cali & Colorado)</span><br></li>
<li>Know the vast differences between Coffee People, Torrefazione, and Starbucks. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(yeah - none are as great as Peet's or Stumptown!)</span><br></li>
<li>You can list more than five reasons why Starbucks is evil. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(but only one counts - "their coffee sucks")</span><br></li>
<li>Every July 1st, it takes half a day to find your sunglasses and sunscreen.<br></li>
<li>You remember the date, severity, time of day, where you were, and how long you were out of power for every winter weather event for the last five years. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(man, remember when 8" of snow shut the city down for a week?)</span><br></li>
<li>You go to a coffee bar and see two guys get into a fight over who makes the best IPA. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(mmm, Terminal Gravity...)</span><br></li>
<li>Own more than 10 articles of clothing that have microbreweries/brewpubs printed on them. Bonus for embroidered stuff. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(I have five, but one with embroidery - that counts!)</span><br></li>
<li>You know that Boring is a place, not an adjective to describe your job. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(it's where I used to go to church - how's that for appropriate)</span><br></li>
<li>You can point in the direction of two or more volcanoes even though you can't see them due to clouds.<br></li>
<li>You have a bookstore, coffee bar, and brewpub within walking distance of your house. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(true!!)</span><br></li>
<li>When you drive out of town, even the Hondas have gun racks. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(in Boring. heh)</span><br></li>
<li>You can name more than 10 kinds of berries and where to get them.<br></li>
<li>You can name more than 10 beer styles and their hop profiles. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(can't everyone?)</span><br></li>
<li>When the weather gets above 50 degrees, you put on your shorts, but you still wear your hiking boots and parka.<br></li>
<li>When the weather gets above 60 degrees, you replace your hiking boots with sandals. (<span style="font-size:xx-small;">they're called Tevas, not sandals!)</span><br></li>
<li>You can recount more than five anecdotes why the east side is a crime-infested jungle <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(but only one counts - meth)</span><br></li>
<li>You can list more than five reasons why the west side is a boring, snobby, white-bread suburb. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(because it is)</span><br></li>
<li>You are sitting at a red light surrounded by Subaru Legacy Outbacks.<br></li>
<li>"Today's forecast, showers, followed by rain. Tomorrow: rain, followed by showers" doesn't faze you. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">I don't get it</span><br></li>
<li>You can't wait for a day with "showers and sunbreaks".<br></li>
<li>You live equidistant to a symphony hall, a winery, and a volcano. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(well, I'm closer to the symphony hall, but yeah)</span></li>

It's like the Hawaii forecast joke where they try to find as many ways to say "sunny" as possible. Apparently it rains a lot in Portland?
