There are approximately 890432 reasons why I love the city I have resided in for the last 6 years, and the state I have inhabited for the last 20 years, but today I am going to share just 1 of them with you.
I was reading Jessie's most recent post about her trip to Maine, and from it I deduced that NY was not a part of New England. Jigga what? As far as my southern belle brains were concerned, that whole area "up there" was New England. And the North. And the Northeast. North = Northeast = New England.
So, for your information...
1. North = anything above the Mason-Dixon line.
2. Northeast = New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, & the dirty Jerzzzz
3. New England = Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont & Rhode Island
Am I the only apparently geographically challenged idiot who didn't know these facts? Probably.
Whatever, weird northerners. I'll claim my Midwest roots but I fully commit myself to be a Southern girl, through and through. Nothin's that complicated 'bout the south, anyway.
