Things I didn't know before moving to michigan:
- all those varieties of fake snow you see actually are modeled on real snow. even the fake snow that looks like disintegrating styrofoam. Except for the cotton candy type stuff... i haven't seen that fall from the sky yet.
- it really is possible to not have any friends living within 12 hours.
- the upper penisula is viewed by the "main land" much the same as the ozarks are by the rest of missouri
- i know i had a fourth one... but i can't remember what it is...
