AB - Alberta
BC - British Columbia

and there's some territories too...NWT I think? Did I miss anything fellow Canucks?

lol

I knew all the abbreviations. I should be like an honorary Canuck or something, living so close to the border and everything.

Detroit pretty much sucks nowadays, too. We are a one industry kind of town (automotive) and people are dying out here. Factory closings, white collar layoffs, etc. If I could get out of here today, I would. Just don't know where to, though.

Speaking of funny names, we have a sign here that's pretty famous - Big Beaver Rd, Exit 69

I was driving home from a concert with a fellow Interferencer once and they had to take their camera out and take a picture of it.

Yeah, well...you're east of me.


Okay, a good reason why you must be alert to what you're playing when logged into Lastfm: I just finished listening to one song, and was busy doing something. The next song on my list that came on was Dr. Evil singing Just the Two of Us. I dove to stop it before it registered.

Well provinces are like states to you guys, I suppose.

The territories are just too vast to be provinces maybe ? I forget why they call the far north territories...likely to do with how the land was annexed and native Indian territories to the north, man I should look that up!!

lol, we know.

Well, people in Manhattan don't drive. People in Brooklyn don't realize there's anything outside of Brooklyn other than Manhattan - in fact, there is no word for "East" in Brooklyn, except for "East River" which is to the west for them, so it's a concept they can't grasp. And the Bronx........yeah. No one could fathom wanting to go there, so that's why no one knows how to get there.

Upstate NY is like a big....forest. I dunno. It's strange. People downstate always forget it exists. When we do go there it's to go camping or something, and we're always amazed to find that people live there year round.

"So, where ya'll from?"
"Long Island. You?"
"Right here. Born and raised."
"Here? You mean, like, New Jersey?"
"No, right here. I'm a New Yorker."
"lol."
"Yep. Still live here."
"But....how? I mean, like.....where do you eat?"
"Goddamn Long Island people. There's a reason everyone hates you."
"Dude - I think he's gonna make us squeal like pigs, let's get out of here!"
"HEY - Where ya'll goin?"
"Uhhh....Calgary!"
"Calgary?....that ain't even a word."


For some reason the town of Deposit and it's 4 exits entertained us no end.

Isn't Pitkin, Pine and those streets known locally as East NY? I know, it's pretty rough around there, but hell I get around LOL

To be honest when I was younger/bolder/withoutdependants, I thought the boroughs were cool and loved the scene...now my teeth get set on edge when I see the sign for White Plains.

Gettin old.

East NY? Yeah, that's a neighborhood in Brooklyn. They thinks it's named after the river. I don't know which streets go through it though. And yeah, that's a rough town.

The first time I went there was the first time I ever ate at White Castle lol.

The last time was when I saw a guy shot dead on a street corner in broad daylight. That was it for me man.

Nothing much. I might get together with a few friends for drinks tonight, but I don't really have any plans.
