Who's from ETOBICOKE?????........



YOU KNOW YOU'RE FROM ETOBICOKE WHEN:



1.You hate going to Sherway Gardens because you *know*
you'll run into at least half the people you went to
high school with.

2.You think nothing of spending an hour on the TTC to
get to downtown Toronto, but the half-hour bus ride to
Mississauga is waaaaay too far. Besides, who do those
Mississaugans think they are, charging us an extra bus
fare just to cross into their city???

3.Deep down at heart you know that Rexdale is part of
Etobicoke, but you'd just as soon claim it's part of
North York if anyone asks.

4.You make sure to point out that NO, Jane and Finch
is NOT in Etobicoke!!

5.You've been to at least one semi-formal/prom/grad
afterparty at a hotel on the Highway 427 strip.

6.You've stopped for coffee at a William's or a
Timothy's.

7.You don't find it the least bit ironic that the
snottiest highschool in the city is called "Richview"

8.If you see gang graffiti along Lakeshore you laugh
because you know it was written by a "gang" of white
trash yokel kids, but if you see it in Rexdale, you
RUN!

9.You have eaten or at least been to the Kipling
Strip, where every fast food restaurant in the world
is.

10.You remember the days when only the *cool* people
hung out at Demetre's on Bloor...now you laugh at the
people inside as you pass by...

11.You're afraid to cross Steeles Ave. into
Woodbridge, because unless you're driving a souped-up
Civic, slinging an Invicta knapsack across your back
or wearing Kappa anything, you just ain't gonna fit
in...

12.You could measure distance by figuring out how many
minutes away you are from a Loblaws Superstore.

13.You always wondered when you were younger why there
were so many cars parked at West Deane Park late at
night, and now that you know why, you feel somewhat
dirty...

14.You have taken pleasure in beating Richview,
Etobicoke or Martingrove in any sport or event.

15.You always thought that the Guardian was a stupid
newspaper, but nonetheless you've probably flipped
through it now and then to see if anyone you knew was
mentioned in it.

16.You take PRIDE in answering people when they ask
"where in Toronto are you from?"

I used to live in Etob for 5 years, and like NONE of that applies, but maybe because I used to live in Downtown and I went to school there.

well, I lived in Mississauga all my life, but had tons of friends that lived in Etobicoke that attended Redmond, Micheal Power, Richview and ECI... from what I hear them always complaining... that's pretty accurate.

That's about how it is being from Etobicoke, especially the part about Sherway Gardens.
