It Is The BOSTON Pobble, After All

Seven ways to tell I'm getting homesick...

7. I watch reruns of Cheers, Boston Public, and Being Human (but no, not Ally McBeal; I have some standards, even when homesick).
6. My ringtone gets changed over to the Dropkick Murphys
5. These apples are okay, but not nearly as good as the ones from the North Shore
4. This southern girl starts saying "cah" and "quahta."
3. The air I'm breathing seems way too clean to be healthy.
2. It's Autumn in New England.

And the number one way to know I'm getting homesick?

1. Four grand seems a perfectly reasonable rent on a one bedroom apartment, given its proximity to Copley Square...

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

I totally relate. My Florida accent gets thicker, and I start missing the stupidest things, like bright colored buses. We so often have to choose between good things, and leave some behind. Good thing we have our memories!

Cracker Lilo!!!! YAY! So nice to see you're still around, even if just lurking and not writing as much. Why am I not surprised you understand this? Although, I think I would miss bright colored buses, too.

OMG! I LOVE THE AMERICAN VERSION OF BEING HUMAN!!!!! The British one is good too but I love the American one.

I have season one if you need it. Let me know.

And yes I rock out to Dropkick Murphys as well.

Boston's missing you too. The Red Sox's lost, they had a terrible September. Not one to be proud of. The colors of Fall aren't here yet but there is a chill in the air. I love Autumn and the FIRST Snow but I don't like our winters. Boston is a great place to visit(54 years and counting) but I would love to live a bit to the south (someday). take care
