OK. Many of you may have seen these, if so, it's still down right funny.

You know you're a Floridian if....

You never use an umbrella because you know the rain will be over in
five minutes.

A good parking place has nothing to do with distance from the store,
but everything to do with shade.

Your winter coat is made of denim.

You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and mosquito bites.

You're younger than thirty but some of your friends are over 65.

Anything under 70 degrees is chilly.

You've driven through Yeehaw Junction.

You know that no other grocery store can compare to Publix.

Every other house in your neighborhood had blue roofs in 2004-2005.

You know that anything under a Category 3 just isn't worth waking up for.

You dread love bug season.

You are on a first name basis with the Hurricane list.
They aren't Hurricane Charley or Hurricane Frances.
You know them as Andrew, Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne.

You know wh at a snowbird is and when they'll leave.

You think a six-foot alligator is actually pretty average.

'Down South' means Key West ..

Flip-flops are everyday wear. Shoes are for business meetings and church,
but you HAVE worn flip flops to church before.

You get annoyed at the tourists who feed seagulls.

A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level.

You know the four seasons really are: hurricane season, love bug
season, tourist season and summer.

You've hosted a hurricane party.

You can pronounce Okeechobee and Kissimmee.

You understand why it's better to have a friend with a boat, than have
a boat yourself.

You've worn shorts and used the A/C on Christmas and New Years.

You recognize Miami-Dade as 'Northern Cuba.'

Cool. I'm going to have to forward this to my sister who has a condo in Florida and goes there two months out of the year. Maybe you've seen her: Blond hair, glasses, heavy-set... Need a pic?

I've seen versions of this before but I like yours better, Indy! I also like the one something to the effect of - "when it's cold out, you wear a heavy parka and flip flops " which really hits home. Since I moved to FL, I pretty much only wear flip flops (except for my motorcycle boots when riding) and now my feet even get annoyed being in sneakers! Pretty sad, huh?

You are bringing back memories my friend!

I am a floridian but have been living overseas for like 10 years now... that is if you count Alaska as overseas (the military does). I don't think I ever wear shoes... well I usually switch to shoes a few days into my vacay when my feet start hurting like crazy. :D

You Might Be A Disney Fan If:

You know the five levels of attendance: Best time to go, Taking A Chance, Jeez You're Crazy, Hell No and Can I Have Your Things?

You know the four season: Cheerleading, Brazilians, Summer Events and Winter Holidays

Plastic bags have better usage than $8.00 ever will

Parades are used to judge wait times

Amount of people in the parks are judged by the parking lots

$10.00 is more than enough for a three course meal throughout the day

Pin Trading was sooooo three years ago

CafePress/Zazzle is your one stop shop for unique Park shirts

45 mins before show time is idiotic.

5 Mins before showtime is still not pushing it.

You know the difference between ToTs and ToT

You remember the original icon of the Studios

And the original name of the Studios

You remember when people actually cared about Night Kingdom

You can be in line for any attraction and yell: KUNGALOOSH! and get at least five people to return it.

SMRT-1 Was the greatest invention at EPCOT. Period.

You get the icon on the gravity wheel. . .

You know that the World Showcase Plaza is not the only place to see the fireworks.

You know who Linda Organa Solo Skywalker is

And have met her

Better yet, you know who Linda Organa Solo Skywalker is. . . and the other costumes she has during the rest of the year

Rehabs don't make you cry

When you hear Space Mountain is down to "Technical Difficulties", you know where to go to see said "Technical Difficulties"

If you see one more person dressed as Jack Sparrow, you will go after them.

You've heard of the 101 Dalmatians family at the Halloween Party.

You remember when Test Track was "Opening in 1998"

$10? Or $100? For $10, your courses are going be french fries, a bottle of water, and skittles.
