Thirteen Things about Michigan, its People, and its Places
1. We have absolutely no accent (assuming you're not from the UP).
2. It's the only state that allows you to use a body part to show outsiders where you grew up (assuming you're not from the UP).
3. It has the best fresh water beaches along the west side (Lake Michigan).
4. It's one of the only places Madonna won't go.
5. School isn't cancelled based upon a meteorologist's preminition of a 1/4 inch of midnight snow.
6. Where do you think that Eminem and Jack White got their inspiration?
7. It allows the most liberal (Michael Moore) and the most conservative (Ted Nugent) to thrive within its borders.
8. The best blueberries in the world are grown in Grand Rapids.
9. Where else can you go to Hell and Climax in the same day?
10. We got rid of Gerald R. Ford first.
11. Christopher Reeve once walked with Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman on Macinac Island.
12. American Pie is based upon my home town.
13. Only those who rock are allowed!
Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!
