Nice user profile.

 

Usually don't hear Floridians refer to themselves as possum killers.

 

The other stuff I'm not going to even ask about.

 

Most people that live in Tampa actually know that it's not in central Florida.

 

 

Chalk up another one for the Snarf!

You're right. It's either referred to as the Bay area or Gulf Coast. My brother lives in Clearwater which is right next to Tampa. Central Florida is Orlando or Belle Glades ... anywhere inland mid-state, not on the coast.

Originally from Red Hook Brooklyn, I'm now in Florida, sandwiched between Daytona and Orlando. The best of both fun places.

Neo-medieval and noise are two music genres I admire.

 

A sommelier is a fancy term for someone who knows their **** about wine... I use it in the context of my appreciation for the above-mentioned genres.

 

If you don't know what a soothsayer is... get some old Smurfs episodes and check out the scenes with Garkamel. Or were you too busy playing He-Man during those years?

 

I don't live in Tampa. I live in a small rural town near Tampa.

 

It's a huge pet peeve of mine when YANKEES think the name of Tampa is Tampa Bay. Nope, it's just Tampa, old Indian name for "Folks from above the Mason-Dixon move down and drive up the cost of living and housing then tell the natives they drive funny, talk funny, and eat funny stuff."

 

I don't live on the coast.

I didn't realize anyone in this thread referred to Tampa as Tampa Bay. What town are you in that is near Tampa, but also in Central Florida?

 

Sommelier is actually a job title. A person could know all there is to about wine but will never be a sommelier unless hired as one by a restaurant. Yet how you use it in context for your music genre appreciation is puzzling.

 

I thought Tampa meant "folks from above the Mason-Dixon line move down and bring culture, boost the economy out of the stoneage, and give the gift of pizza and chinese food that Floridians took and butchered beyond all recognition."If we only brought our education system with us, Florida's younger generation would have something other than jobs as landscapers to look forward to in the future. The test scores are pittiful here.

 

$80-90K homes aren't exactly people's idea of an inflated housing market.

I dated a girl who lives in Orange City. If you live there or pass through, beware of psycho blondes.

Do you wear a leather mask and carry around a chain saw?
