You know you're from New Mexico when...

(just some of my favs)
You know you will run into at least 3 cousins whenever you shop at Wal-Mart, Sam's or Home Depot.

Tumbleweeds and various cacti in your yard are not weeds. They are your lawn.

Trailers are not referred to as trailers. They are houses. Double-wide trailers are "real" houses.

At any gathering, regardless of size, green chile stew, tortillas, and huge mounds of shredded cheese are mandatory.

A tarantula on your porch is ordinary. A scorpion in your tub is ordinary. A poisonous centipede on your ceiling? Ordinary. A black widow crawling across your bed is terribly, terribly common. A rattlesnake is an occasional hiking hazard. No need to freak out.

You're relieved when the pavement ends because the dirt road has fewer pot-holes.

You can correctly pronounce Tesuque, Cerrillos, and Pojoaque.

You have been told by at least one out-of-state vendor that they are going to charge you extra for "international" shipping.

Your swamp cooler got knocked off your roof by a dust devil.

You know that The Jesus Tortilla is not a band.

You have an extra freezer just for green chile.

(Full list here)

You know you live in 2006 when...


1. You go to a party, sit down and take MySpace pics.















2. You havent played solitaire with real cards in years.















3. The reason for not staying in touch with your friends is that they don't have AIM/LiveJournal/MySpace.















4. You'd rather look all over the house for the remote instead of just pushing the button on the TV.















6. Your evening activity is sitting at the computer.














7. You read this list, and keep nodding and smiling.















8. You think about how stupid you are for reading this.














9. You were too busy to notice number five.














10. You actually scrolled back up to check if there was a number five.















11. And now you're laughing at your stupidity.
