U.S. States not seen yet at all: I still haven't seen Hawaii and Mississippi since I started doing this in October.


I don't know how you feel about it, but every time you post this I feel a sense of displaced yearning for Mississippi. Hawaii is out of my reach, I don't expect to ever see her in your posts. You've had Loisiana, Alabama and Arkansas...but Mississippi...she should be here.

Because of that, I mourn that which I've never had.

My brother told me this summer that he was surprised it was Mississippi that I haven't seen. He sees them all the time. Of course, he lives in Alabama. But Mississippi is a fairly populous state, especially compared to some of the others near there that I see at least every other month (Arkansas?). A lot of it is just where the students who live in the neighborhoods I regularly drive through are from. Maybe Mississippi students are less likely to come to Syracuse for some reason.

I see Nova Scotia more often than New Brunswick and Manitoba more than Quebec (although it's the same Manitoba plate in the same place every time). What baffles me is why I see Washington several times a week, about as often as I see California.
