There ARE states weirder than Indiana, right?

Regular posting will resume as soon as Mr. Sea and I secure a new, more reliable computer. We're still deciding on a machine.

Meanwhile, Mighty Mite has decided that Indiana is too weird for her -- and has even found a literary source to back up her arguments. We caught her in the act of forming an escape plan.

I guess it doesn't matter to her that Canada is even COLDER than Indiana. Oh, well. She IS just a baby.

I take it neither you or Might Mite have heard of California, the Stae of Mass Psychosis...

It's not THAT cold... oh wait, they shut down schools today because it was freezing...

Oh sweetie, this is NOT the right time of year to be making a break for Canada.

Is Indiana that nuts? Because Illinois seems to be having some problems lately.

I'm from New England, and we are known for being eccentric. Charming, but eccentric.

Well, that idiot financial advisor who recently crashed his plane in Florida and tried to fake his own death was from Indiana. From my mom's home town, in fact.

(On the other hand, the hero pilot who landed the plane in the Hudson River was a Purdue [Lafayette, Indiana] graduate! Yay!)

We have one town named French Lick, and another named Santa Claus.

We have people buried literally in the middle of roads here -- complete with tombstones.

It's against the law to catch fish with your bare hands. It's also against the law for liquor stores to sell soft drinks or milk.

No, I'm not kidding.

I can understand milk, but soft drinks? That's just crazy talk! On the other hand, in Connecticut we have Blue Laws which mean you cannot purchase liquor after 8:00 PM, or on Sundays. You have to drive to Massachusetts instead,where you can get drunk AFTER 8:00 PM.

Graves in the middle of the roads?

Yep, graves in roads. I should do a post about that someday, actually. Maybe next Halloween.
