Thoughts on Maryland:
I have been passed angrily in a parking garage for only going the posted 5 miles per hour. Dude: if you wanted to get here faster, you should have left the house earlier.
I will lose my radio station (no matter which one it is) halfway down any given block to have it come back at random somewhere down the street.
No religion, of course, but I’ve noticed that people salt/pepper their casual conversation with references to their religious faith out here to a degree that doesn’t happen even in Colorado Springs. Stuff like answering “how ya doin’?” with “I’m blessed! How are you?”, that sort of thing.
There are precious few liquor stores around. In Colorado, you can’t drive half a block without driving past a couple that have decent microbrew selections. Here? They’re practically hidden. It’s not a case of grocery stores selling liquor… they do that in Virginia, but not here. (There is also a huge lack of “medicinal” stores but that is something that I probably only find worth noticing because I’m from Colorado.)
No White Castle.
In any case, I’m looking forward to dinner with friends this weekend and basically SLEEPING IN on Saturday and Sunday because, jeez, it’s two hours later out here. Getting up at 6AM to get to work by 7 is *PAINFUL*.
So… what’s on your docket?
