From fellow blogger Guy Malone:
You know you are from New Mexico when...
A package of white flour tortillas are the exact same thing as a loaf of bread.
At any gathering, regardless of size, green chile stew, tortillas, and huge mounds of shredded cheese are mandatory.
There is a piece of a UFO displayed in your home.
You believe that using a turn signal is a sign of weakness.
You can actually hear the Taos Hum.
You don't see anything wrong with drive-up window liquor sales.
You hated Texans until the Californians moved in.
You have an extra freezer just for green chile.
You have been told by at least one out-of-state vendor that they are going to charge you extra for "international" shipping .
You have driven to an Indian Casino at 3am because you were hungry. http://www.rt66casino.com/
You iron your jeans to "dress up" .
You know the punch line to at least one Espanola joke.
You know whether you want "red or green".
You see nothing odd when, in the conversations of the people in line around you at the grocery store, every other word of each sentence alternates between Spanish and English .
Your Christmas decorations include "a yard of sand and 200 paper bags".
Your swamp cooler got knocked off your roof by a dust devil.
