It’s the first day of my Spring Break.
Sleeping in takes the zing out of Snark Monday, you know?
Hey, since I’m home for a visit, I’ll share what people have said about the land of my birth.
For starters, how about this dandy sign?
Rest stops are more dangerous than we thought. Thank you, CALTRANS.
“I am the ultimate California girl, which is funny, being that I’m Canadian.”
And I, being the genuine article, don’t look the part. Or have funds for surgery. Rats.
“I didn’t study writing. I didn’t write anything substantial until I got to California.”
Doesn’t it usually work the other way? I didn’t write—or work very hard—until I moved away.
“I move between San Francisco and Paris… I have a wonderful beach house in California.”
Never mind Paris. Keep writing and the beach house—any shack, any beach! —will come?
“Secretly, I think everyone who makes fun of California really does want to be in California.” (Zooey Deschanel)
Well, sure. Like anywhere else, California is a wonderful place to live…if you have money. And we kind of didn’t.
“It doesn’t rain at all in California. Once a month, a man drives through spraying Evian.” (Hugh Laurie)
No kidding. What a place.
