PostSubject: You Might Be a LHotP Fan If...   Sat Jan 19, 2008 2:53 pm

Every once in a while I have a burst of creativity. Inspired by the popular "You might be a" lists, I took a shot at creating a "You might be a Little House on the Prairie fan" list, and here's what I came up with. Feel free to add more. Hope you enjoy it.

You might be a Little House on the Prairie fan if...
  • You know what a livery is.
  • You swim in your underwear.
  • You have a dog named "Jack".
  • After your dog named "Jack" dies, you get a new dog and name him "Bandit".
  • You insist that your daughters wear calico dresses.
  • You insist that your daughters wear nightcaps.
  • You have an overwhelming desire to wear a bonnet, even if you're a man.
  • You just can't understand why your doctor won't accept chickens and apples as payment for his services.
  • Your favorite lunch is chicken and biscuits.
  • You go to bed by 8pm.
  • You get up before 5am.
  • You hate the city.
  • Your favorite hymn is Bringing in the Sheaves. You're really in deep if you call it Good Old Bringing in the Sheaves.
  • Hailstorms make you nervous.
  • You think your kids have an easy time at school, because you know Miss Beadle would never go so easy on them.
  • Instead of turning on the faucet, you tell your kids to fetch water from the creek.
  • You like to take a bath in the barn.
  • You eat popcorn in bed.
  • You built your house yourself.
  • You address all boys as "son", even if they aren't your son.
  • You call your daughter "Half Pint".
  • Your idea of a night on the town is going to the corn-shuckin' at Miller's barn.
  • You just don't understand the need for all these fancy modern inventions like electricity and indoor plumbing.
  • You just can't wait for the church social.
  • To the nearest mile, you know how far it is from Sleepy Eye to Mankato. No, they never mentioned this on the show, but why would you know this if you weren't a Little House geek?
  • You sometimes talk like Jonathan Garvey. There could be no doubt if you ever use the word "thems", as in, "Thems wolves, son."
  • You know at least two verses of Old Dan Tucker.
  • Your favorite perfume is lemon verbena.
  • You know how to spit, and you're proud of it.
  • You've ever uttered the words, "Can't stand for no peekin'".
  • You're thrilled to get mail once every two weeks.
  • You know what dicky birds are.
  • You insist that your kids carry their lunch to school in a pail.
  • When it's time to leave for church, you tell your family, "I'll go hitch up the team," before you remember you have a car.
  • You really just don't care for the name "Alyssa". For some reason, it gets on your nerves whenever you hear it.
  • You think the best football game ever played was the 1880 thriller between the Winoka Warriors and the Dakota Dragons. You're a hopeless Little House fanatic if it annoys you that Dragons fans still gripe about that final play.
  • When you're mad, you shout, "dad gummit!"
  • Just before leaving on a family trip, you ask your kids, "Does anybody need to go to the outhouse?"
  • You refer to the neighborhood hoodlum as an "ornery-lookin' cuss".
  • You always make sure you have enough potatoes for winter store.
  • Instead of stairs leading to upstairs bedrooms, your house has a ladder leading to a loft.
  • If you have a mean boss, you say to yourself, "At least he's not as mean as Mr. Standish."
  • You inadvertently refer to the Loch Ness Monster as the Lake Kezia Monster.
  • You always carry plenty of gum with you, just in case you drop a dime through a hole in the sidewalk.
  • Whenever you walk by a playground where kids are playing Ring Around the Rosie, you walk up to them, hands on hips, and say, "I wanna play Uncle John!"
  • You think your church would look better with green curtains behind the pulpit.
  • You think it would be cool if you looked just like Mr. Edwards. You've gone off the deep end if you're a woman and you think it would be cool if you looked just like Mr. Edwards.
  • You take a day off work when your cow's birthin'.
  • Clown masks creep you out.
  • When you hear "Bunny", you think of a horse, not a rabbit.
  • When you see a crime being committed, instead of calling the police, you ring the church bell, round up the men of the town, arrest the suspect, throw him in the ice house, and then wire for a judge.
  • In a medical emergency, instead of calling 911, you shout to the nearest person, "Go get Doc Baker!"
  • You think that raccoon that keeps raiding your garbage can must be Jasper.
  • You just can't get the theme music out of your head.
  • Just once, you'd like to run down a hill, put your arms out like airplane wings, and jump, all the while humming the closing theme music.

And finally, you just might be a Little House on the Prairie fan if...you've seen Country Girls 30 times and just can't wait to watch it again.

You might be a LHOP fan if you :

start looking up recipes for salt risin' bread and other LH delicacies. (I have actually done that. When I get a working oven, I'm gonna make some salt risin' bread...sounds wonderful!)

If you find yourself saying the word "shack" instead of house when you are talking to someone, especially if they aren't being nice and you tell them it is your shack and they aren't welcome in it!!

Of course you know I had to throw that in because of my deep love for the Carter's, especially John "a/k/a I want to be a Charles Ingalls clone" Carter.....

IT'S wonderful. It has a lot of great "Prairie recipes", and very useful insights about how people eats back then. It's not only a cookbook, but also a social-history book. Read it! Thumbsup

You might be a little house fan if you ask your pa "Can I hitch up the horses?" instead of "May I have the keys to the car?"

Thems real funny. Laughing

Here are my offerings:

*You don't like to talk on the phone because you’re always worried Mrs. Oleson might be listening in.
*Everytime your daughter gets a new boyfriend, you challenge him to an arm-wrestling contest.
*The only thing you give your children for Christmas is a penny.
*Everytime you go shopping for school, you ask the manager where s/he keeps the slates.
*You always try to get credit at Wal-Mart by bringing in eggs.
*Anytime your cellphone gives you trouble, you mumble, “That’s progress for you.”
*Even though your sister isn’t blind, you sometimes write to her using a brail pencil.
