-Yes, this is a complete rip off of Kym's board here: http://www.pinkpt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=33775

You know you've been brought up in London when...

1.- You have the reflex of always leaving home with an umbrella no matter how sunny it is.
2.- You can tell when Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Fulham, West Ham or Charlton are playing because you can hear people screaming from the pub down the road.
3.- You only know what’s going on in the world because of the slogans on the Evening Standard boards.
4.- The Millennium Dome. Enough said.
5.- You have an Oyster Card.
6.- You’ve lost your Oyster Card.
7.- You go Christmas shopping on Oxford Street and/or High Street Kensington.
8.- You remember when Krispy Kremes came to Harrods...and the vendors gave them away for free.
9.- You were happy that London got the Olympics for 5 minutes, until you realized what a nuisance it would be.
10.- You’ve had your phone stolen by a chav.
12.- You've bought clothes at Selfridges.
13.- You’ve gone ice skating and bowling at Queen’s Way, but never bothered to ask why they combined the two under one roof.
14.- Your parents have complained about the congestion charge.
15.- “Mind the gap”.
16.- As we speak, there’s probably something wrong with the Piccadilly Line.
17.- You’re furious that Ken Livingston wants to do away with the double-decker.
18.- Everyone has a story of how close they, or someone they know, were to taking the tube on 7/7.
19. - People think that, because you’ve lived in London, you say things like “frightfully, frightfully”.
20.- You know of the concept of Seasons, but you've never lived them.
21.- It’s probably raining right now.
22.- Your face is not bovvered.
23.- You say things like 'bruv' and 'chav' and no one knows what you're on about.
24.- You use phrases like "havin' a butchers" or other assorted phrases to mean something as simple as "I'm going to take a look."
25.- Someone has called you a chav or chavette at least once, bonus points if you've worn a Burberry design cap/clothes.
26.- When you say 'England', you mean London.
27.- You know the tube map backwards, but aren't really sure if Leicester is North or South.
28.- You can park an 8ft long car in a 5ft long space.
29.- You know where all of the incredibly hard to find, super cool clubs are, but couldn't point out Buckingham Palace on an A to Z.
30.- You believe that the best approach to crossing busy roads is 'walk and they will stop'.
31.- Three quid fifty is a very reasonable price for a cup of black coffee.
32.- You didn't need the subtitles in the rhyming slang scene from Lock Stock.
33.- You know what Lock Stock is without needing to hear the rest of the title.
34.- You believe that everything north of Brent Cross is just farmland.
35.- You get your conversation starters from the 'and finally' section of the Metro.
36.- You use energy saving lightbulbs to 'be green', but pick your kids up from school (which is a five minute walk away) in a Range.
37.- You own two mobiles and a blackberry, but know none of the numbers.
38.- You could never live in Hapmstead because the idea of dealing with the Swiss Cottage junction every day makes your skin crawl.
39.- You've been mugged by at least one person from each continent on the earth.
40.- You say "the city" and expect everyone to know which one.
41.- You can get into a four-hour argument about how to get from Shepherd's Bush to Elephant & Castle at 3:30 on the Friday before a long weekend, but can't find Dorset on a map.
42.- You call an 8' x 10' plot of patchy grass a garden.
43.- You've been to Tooting twice and got hopelessly lost both times.
44.- You pay 3 quid without blinking for a beer that cost the bar 28p.
45.- You have 27 different menus next to your telephone.
46.- You're suspicious of strangers who are actually nice to you.
47.- You haven't cooked a meal since helping mum last Christmas with the turkey.
48.- Your idea of personal space is no one actually standing on your toes.
49.- You have a minimum of five "worst cab ride ever" stories.
50.- You don't hear sirens anymore.
51.- You've mentally blocked out all thoughts of the city's air quality and what it's doing to your lungs.
52.- You say 'mate' constantly.
53.- The countryside makes you nervous
54.- You talk in postcodes. "God, it was really warm round SW1 the other day"
55.- You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from London.
56.- You always steal/take the free newspapers from the tube stations.
57.- You've been on tubes, but harldy any trains.
58.- You don't blink twice when 9 buses some speeding down the High Road at the same time.
59.- You allow an extra half an hour on your journey times to wait for the bus.
60.- You know bus schedules, and that the 52's and 98's are some of the most frequent buses, and that the 460 and 260 take the same route, but the 260 continues to Harlesden.
61.- You can see the Wembley Stadium by climbing onto your roof... Not that I'd know...
62.- You are probably laughing by now.
63.- You know how many GAP's, Selfridges, Body Shop's, etc. there are in Oxford Street.
64.- You know the name of every rival school in your area.
65.- If you live in North London, you've said the phrase North Weezy and reppin at least once.
66.- You're on your sixth umbrella and raincoat... and have 3 more in the cupboard, in case there's a light shower.
67.- It's only a light rain, even if the puddles are up to your ankles.
68.- You don't even bother looking out of the window when you get up in the morning to check what the day is like. You know it is overcast.
69.- More than three hours sunlight on summer days seems excessive.
70.- You think 40 quid for a haircut is quite reasonable.
71.- You finish every sentence with "Cheers" or "Init", and start every conversation with Hiya.
72.- You only just realise you have lost your sunglasses - you left them in Greece 2 summers ago.
73.- A day at the beach means wearing the warmest clothes you own while standing on golf ball-size pebbles and the thought of swimming doesn't even enter your head.
74.- You actually say, "Sor'ed" or "it's all gone a bit pear shaped".
75.- You have given up explaining why you are half an hour late to work as no-one notices or even cares. In fact - you may even join the one hour gossip session around the coffee machine before booting up your computer.
76.- You miss out vowels and t's.."Lit'rally", "Alrigh'", "Le''er" (Literally, Alright, Letter)
77.- You've probably heard all of these before.

Anything north of the Watford Gap isn't worth visiting in your opinion.
You don't acknowledge leaf-letters in any way shape or form and consider anyone who does to be an abnormal freak. Or a tourist.
You've ate asian food from the Camden Market food court.
You've caught some form of stomach bug from the asian food from the Camden market food court.

I <3 Camden Market even though I'm still sick as a dog from Thursday.

It's coming...

Hehe of COURSE I'll take the PODBUS. There is no better form of transport after all. :)

On a more serious note, I can't wait to visit the UK. One of the places I definitely want to visit is the Ireland... so beautiful.

And I want to visit Werepup or Iya!! One of my coolest PPT amigas!!

I'll let everyone here know when I go overseas and we can all meet up and be merry. :D
