She Who Must Be Obeyed and I are getting ready to ride the Great Silver Aerial Bus to Boston, where we will visit Elder Daughter. Yee-Haw!

To provide y’all with some Mindless Amusement, here’s a meme I copped from The Modulator - that very same Modulator who posts the Friday Ark.

What States Have You Been IN?

Bold the states you’ve visited, underline the states you’ve lived in, and italicize the state you’re currently in.

If you’re a lazy-ass like me, you can use this nifty link to have the code generated for you. [But note that the code you get does not allow you to select multiple categories. Not that it matters, because if you’ve ever lived in a state, you can be presumed to have visited it. Duh.]

Here’s my response. Some of the states on my “visited” list were the recipients of very short visits indeed. Maine, a few minutes. Alaska, an hour in the Anchorage airport enroute from Seoul, Korea to Paris (!) But how anal-retentive do you have to be to want to break the list down into states where you’ve stayed overnight, states where you’ve Answered Nature’s Call, etc., ad nauseam? Why, you’d have to be anal-acquisitive: so anal-retentive that your anus actually sucks in any nearby matter. Ewwww.

Alabama / Alaska / Arizona / Arkansas / California / Colorado / Connecticut / Delaware / Florida / Georgia / Hawaii / Idaho / Illinois / Indiana / Iowa / Kansas / Kentucky / Louisiana / Maine / Maryland / Massachusetts / Michigan / Minnesota / Mississippi / Missouri / Montana / Nebraska / Nevada / New Hampshire / New Jersey / New Mexico / New York / North Carolina / North Dakota / Ohio / Oklahoma / Oregon / Pennsylvania / Rhode Island / South Carolina / South Dakota / Tennessee / Texas / Utah / Vermont / Virginia / Washington / West Virginia / Wisconsin / Wyoming / Washington, D.C. /

Exciting, innit?
