Postal abbreviation for Connecticut.
Connecticut is a state.
(noun) Someone with a lot more money than you. As such, the definition is elastic depending on one's economic status. Usually a term applied to others rather than to oneself.
Make the rich pay! (Marxist-Leninist party of Canada campaign slogan, circa 1980)
Everyone thinks of New England as the most stuck-up and rudest people in all of the US..then why was New Hampshire
voted as the most livable state in 2005? Don't judge New England before you've spent time or lived here, it's awesome.
Just because New England has private schools doesn't mean we're stuck up. We're very friendly :)
The underage drinking and weed capitol of the country. Where Dispatch and Dave Matthews are the anthems, and pink polos, lobsters and Lilly are the uniform. Every kid attempts to be ghetto at one point or another but Norwalk is the last place you will ever find them. FCers as freshman can drink college seniors under the table.
Chip and Bunny live in Fairfield County.
A true preppy is someone who:
Wears, but is not limited to, Polo, Lilly, Brooks Brothers, Lacoste, LL Bean (ie duck boots), ribbon belts, prints (ie cords with embroidered whales, palm trees, etc), sweaters tied around the neck, collar always popped, looks neat and put together. Hair ribbons or ribbon headbands, pearls, and other classic jewelry pull the look together. Preppies are partial to monogrammed and engraved items (ie tote bags, oxford shirts, jewelry, money clips, etc). Colors are always brite (favorites include pink and lime green). Preppies may not always match EXACTLY but they are always coordinated. Hats are worn (ie polo player, Lacoste, Brooks Brothers), but they are unique- not designs you would see in the mainstream and the "mall".
Preppies often attend prep schools (ie Middlesex School, Governor Dummer Academy, and Belmont Hill) followed by New England private colleges.
They are confident and unafraid to express their own styles and be daring in their fashions. Preppies vacation on Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Delray Beach, and on the coast of Maine. These vacation locales are places their families have been going to for years, and have histories there.
It is a common misconception that preppies are snobs. Many people view them as unapproachable, and as a result mislabel them. Preppies are not as rich as people may think they are, but they are often well off. They buy into classics rather than trends, and don't change their lifestyles with fads.
A little city with ridiculous ghettos but also million+ dollar homes...yalies and homeless people share the downtown. Known for amazing pizza and Toads
"New Haven used to be the 7th poorest city in the country"
Here, in the richest town in the U.S., everyone owns houses bigger than most apartment complexes and drive cars that are more expensive than houses in "the rest" of America. 99% of the town is white, and all the girls wear lacoste and ralph lauren polos and oxfords (collars popped -- that's a given), j. crew classics, "real" juicy couture, and accessorize with prada. Knockoffs? What are those?! After lacrosse or field hockey practice, they all top off their polka-dot hair ribbons with eliza b. or rainbow flip flops. Don't even think about wearing just red or blue, it's all "nantucket red" and "lagoon" or "ocean spray".
Now onto the boys they date:
All wear seersucker or madras shorts/pants, and have long, stylishly unkempt hair. They all sail and play lacrosse, and are exceptional at both, when they aren't stoned or drunk. Their families attend yacht club parties every saturday night, where all the men have names like "tyler" and preppy little nicknames.
For fun in Greenwich, girls shop 'til they drop on "the Ave", where the most popular stores include "Rags" and "Wishlist", where you can pay $70 for a faded shirt that has been "professionally aged" so that the buyer can pretend to be ghetto and poor. And "ghetto" is a word used often in Greenwich. Preppy kids dressed to impress often say things like, "woah, man, your BMW is sooo mad ghetto". For the cash it takes to buy the sportscars that are cruising around Greenwich, you could buy and refurbish a ghetto.
Capital city of Connecticut. Abandoned after 5pm when all the insurance company workers take their daily white flight back to Farmington, Glastonbury, and Avon, where they are far less likely to get shot or carjacked. Hartford is a city so sad that it lost its one professional sports team when Whalers hockey left. A city so sad that *I* had to be the first one to define it. If it wasn't for the Wadsworth Atheneum or the insurance companies it wouldn't be on the map.
Me and my UConn friends go to Hartford on Saturday night to bar hop. Make sure you avoid the north end unless you want to get jumped.
In reference to the city, let's just say that you know you're from there if any of the following apply to you:
You say "the city" and expect everyone to know that this means Manhattan.
You have never been to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building.
You can get into a four-hour argument about how to get from Columbus Circle to Battery Park at 3:30 on the Friday before a long weekend, but can�t find Wisconsin on a map.
Hookers and the homeless are invisible.
The subway makes sense.
You believe that being able to swear at people in their own language makes you multi-lingual.
You've considered stabbing someone just for saying "The Big Apple".
The most frequently used part of your car is the horn.
You call an 8' x 10' plot of patchy grass a yard.
You consider Westchester "upstate".
You think Central Park is "nature."
You see nothing odd about the speed of an auctioneer's speaking.
You're paying $1,200 for a studio the size of a walk-in closet and you think it's a "steal."
You've been to New Jersey twice and got hopelessly lost both times.
You pay more each month to park your car than most people in the U.S. pay in rent.
You haven't seen more than twelve stars in the night sky since you went away to camp as a kid.
You go to dinner at 9 and head out to the clubs when most Americans are heading to bed.
Your closet is filled with black clothes.
You haven't heard the sound of true absolute silence since the 80s, and when you did, it terrified you.
You pay $5 without blinking for a beer that cost the bar 28 cents.
n. A whole lot of chusetts
That is one serious massachusetts.
