Going to Switzerland

Bean is not a native Texan (*gasp*), he's a Coloradoian (yeah, I know that's not really what they call themselves, but really there's no good way to say that, Coloradoer??).

I was trying very hard to work out the logistics on that while we were dating..

Me: So are Coloradoians Yankees??

Bean: No.

Me: But you're not Southerners, you drink your tea with no sugar!!

Bean: No.

Me Ok.. I give up, what the hell are Coloradoians??

Bean: We're Switzerland.

So we're going to Switzerland to visit the in-laws.

It's really not a dreaded trip - Mom Bean & Dad Bean really are ok. And I adore his sister, Sofia and his nephew, Grant. And since Sofia's a teacher, she and Grant will both be on vacation - more time with me!!

And don't worry, I'm going to be a good little blogger and post some stuff for ya'll while I'm away, though I can't promise to be prompt with my comment replies - in-laws are so damn touchy when you ignore them.. But I know you'd all die of boredom if it weren't for me.

Above the Mason Dixon Line - no sugar in tea = Northerner.

Below the Mason Dixon Line - sugar in the tea =
Southerner.

Colorado - Switzerland? Do they have yummy Swiss chocolate there?? THAT right there would be worth going for.

Somehow I doubt that. But they do have some weird non-chocolate food.. not the same..

KLZ said...

Yeah, I'm not buying this Switzerland thing. I'd say they're Australia if anything.

I thought Coloradians were called "cowboys". Do they yodel there? If there's no yodeling then tell Bean he's been (haha, double been there, 1 bean and 1 been) lying to you all these years.

Please don't neglect us... we'd miss you plus we've NEVER lied to you about Switzerland!

I personally love Colorado as we lived there for 3 years. And they are a great country. :)

KLZ - I'm not really either, if it is then I'm seriously disapointed in their cute German/French accents.

Nikki - no worries, I've got my posts all lined up for the week, there's even a theme, and a lot of hystrioncs (sp??) On my part.

Christy - I like Colorado a lot, except for the mountains and the snow and the severe lack of ANY humidity and the bizarre food that they claim is Mexican food.
