You know you grew up in Catskill....

So, Dan sent this over to me today, and I couldn't stop laughing (wincing, occasionally, but always laughing)!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey Laur,

One of my friends (in the truest myspace sense of the term) posted this as a bulletin and I laughed my ass off. Granted, some of the things I didn't know, but I also wasn't that much of a social person when I lived there (something new and different).

You know you’re from Catskill if…

-You feel like going down to the river and you only have one safe park to pick from.
-You remember when Mike Tyson drove his Lamborghini through the In and Out. (or if you remember the In and Out?!)
-You’ve ever bought something from Newberry’s.
-You remember what was there before Rite-Aid.
-You knew the Cats won at state championships (basketball) before the game even began (because they haven't won one since then!)
-“The Hop” doesn’t remind you of anything CLOSE to a dance.
-You can go to a drive-up window to buy your cigarettes.
-You think La Conca D’Oro is the swankiest restaurant ever.
-You know Coxsackie is pronounced “Cook-sock-ee” and Cairo is pronounced “Care-oh”.
-You’d know what I was talking about if I said, “do you remember the Main St. ‘smell’”.
-You can remember when the Uncle Sam Bridge was a drawbridge.
-You’ve ever gone shopping at Jamesway.
-If you’re from the Village, you’re either from Downtown or Westside….end of story.
-You think Conehead Buddha is one of the best bands ever.
-You know that lower Main Street is actually a dyke filled with trash.
-You ever ate lunch at The Mayflower.
-In the summertime you go to Story’s for your corn (or Black Horse!)
-You still refer to whatever happens to be in the store at the top of the hill on Westside as “Stewart’s”.
-You know there will be fireworks every Saturday night at Cone-E-Island during the summer.
-You know all of the nicknames for the Village Police Officers.
-You call it “The Daily Snail”.
-You sometimes accidentally call “Price Chopper”, “Shop Rite”….or try to use your Price Plus card instead of your AdvantEdge card.
-You call it “Wal-Marts’s”.
-You know that one of the hookers is actually called “Hooker”.
-On the subject of hookers, you know there’s a Madame in the apartment over H&R Block
-You go to the Community Theatre, even though it’s totally outdated and the dust on the drapes is about 5 inches thick.
-When you were in high school, Summer Rec was the best job you could ever ask for.
-You ever had an account with Catskill Savings Bank.
-everyone always goes to the Hudson Valley Mall (even though it sucks) because they think it's closer and less complicated than going to Albany.
-You only go on vacation to one of two places- Orlando or Cape Cod.
-You have a Brooklyn accent, even if it’s very faint (words like talk and coffee)
-You’ve ever been annoyed because of the (constant) construction on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge (and the fu^*ing 9w, uggh!)

Informative, but not convincing. Something is missing but what I can not understand. But I will say frankly: bright and benevolent thoughts!....
