"oh.. no wonder you just baught a 15,000 dollar dress"
Connecticut television is dominated by Hartford's WFSB, Channel 3, formerly home to Oprah's pal Gayle King. No other station in America is so obsessed with its frequency number. All the station's personalities wear giant silver 3s on their lapels, and mindlessly chant "three" at every available opportunity. Hartford itself is located halfway between Boston and NYC, and has a marked inferiority complex to both of America's two oldest major cities. The state capitol building, though, is a glorious marvel of Gothic Revival, and well worth a visit.
-When outsiders think of connecticut, they think $$$.
This is true, but ONLY for Fairfield County. Yes, there are some towns that are exceptions like Ridgefield, but I've never really been anywhere outside the FC. CT is what you think of when you think New England. We are New York, but with lighthouses and sailboats, and no trashy beaches, just ones you walk barefoot through at sundown. We are Mass. without the majorly annoying accents, and the Red Sox obsession(i don't know if other parts of CT like the Red Sox). Houses range from a peice of crap being $500,000+, and a decent/nice house being $1,000,000+ at minimum. The school systems are great, but people go to Prep School anyway. This state is simply amazing.
It is beautiful, the snow lightly dusts all the state, and the fall foliage is to die for. The summers are hot, but not way too hot (thought it gets quite hot). There is no doubt this state is rich like me. The infamous Greenwich, Westport, Weston, Easton,New Caanan, Wilton, Darien. This state rocks my socks. And for that girl who lives in Westport (i live in Weston) New Jersey is a dumphole, trust me (it's not just CT-ers who think this). Flip flops are not worn in the winter though..... Nevertheless we preps just by association. I love this state, but i must leave it cause it's getting on my nerves!it's too perfect!
I love Jewish Connecticut-ites!!
Shawn: Wait, are you telling me that you were some rich kid when you were growing up? Did you have a stone wall?!
John: Yeah, I grew up in some rich town called Westport, CT. All I did was hang out with other snobs, but I finally got out of that place.
Shawn: You're from CONNECTICUT?!
Politically it is usually a blue state filled with idiotic liberals with a bad habit of reelected the same corrupt politicians like Chris Dodd. Some fear Connecticut will turn into an ineffective, bankrupt, one-party state like Massachusetts.
Be prepared to endure long roads filled with 16 wheelers and people other than connecticut residents. People tend to ask themselves when they left the highway, and somehow ended up on someone's private road with nice cut grass and spacious trees. Don't fret... It's just the Merritt Parkway.
"Are we in NY yet?"
four seasons. A woman I know has a one floor (very small) house and it's worth 225,000 which is an average price for a house I suppose. Mine is 400,000 and it's a raised ranch. Neither of the houses have pools. The majority of 6th graders have cell phones (average age to get one). If you don't have one in 6th then most likely 7th. You can count the number of 8th graders on one hand who don't have one (I actually got mine in 5th). Oh yah, not everyone's preppy although the majority is. I don't believe polo's are really that preppy but okay. We are not stuck up snobs or anything and it's so annoying when people stereotype like that. I love designer things but not everyone does. Not all of us are spoiled but it depends on your definition of spoiled I guess. The day I turn 16 I am promised a car but it makes sence to get a car once you can drive doesn't it? I don't know what else to say so I'll stop here.
