Stuff Restonians Say

The speech snippets that make up Reston.

Surely by now you have seen the viral videos making the rounds. There is "[Stuff] Yogis Say" and "[Stuff] Jewish Mothers Say" and "[Stuff] New Yorkers Say," to name a few.

Before we break out our video camera and eavesdrop from Hunters Woods to Northpoint, we thought we would make up a printed list of our own. Feel free to add your own snippets in the comments below the story. We'll give a Starbucks card to the response that is so totally Reston.


... They go to Terraset. Yes, the school in the hill

...the Farmers Market..

... table at Jacksons

... The assessments are HOW much this year?

... Approved color pallete

... DRB says the trim has to be either Dove White or Russet Brown

... a bald eagle at Lake Audubon

... The lottery for Hunters Woods

... It's an IB school

... Have you seen the Metro station? It looks like a real station!

Wait, RTC isn't part of RA? Does RCA run RCC or the other way around? What the heck is special tax district 5? Can you swim in the lakes? Is that DRB approved? We love the farmers' market. They should put a ________________ at Lake Anne

I mean who else can introduce their founder at every event. Are you going to Best of Reston? We are volunteering at the Shelter this week, food pantry next week, wait your don't know Reston Interfaith is THE organization helping our neighbors in need. Yes we have people in need in Reston. Of course we have a shelter, we also have affordable housing that is how we roll. Reston is the epitome of diversity.

Thanks for playing, everyone! (and feel free to continue adding). We have two winners - Dianne Rose for mentioning party barges, and Ann Schindler for mentioning that Reston has no cemetery. How could I have forgotten those two things? Send me your postal mail addresses (to kareng@patch.com) and I will mail you your Starbucks cards.

So exciting! Thanks for the Starbucks card! I think I'll kayak over to South Lakes Center for a latte as soon as the weather warms up.
