I'm off to the 602...er uh 623....no wait ...480.

Back in the diz-ay Arizona only had one area code for the entire state. Around the Mid-80's the boom to move out west hit, and Phoenix and the surrounding communities were growing like crazy.

I just remember that it seemed like overnight we went from one area code to several. I think it was when I was a freshman in college. Well, the 'rappers' liked to call Phoenix the "602" because...well... I guess it sounded cool. So, out of habit I call it the "602" 'cause I'm straight gangsta'. Technically though, my dad doesn't live in the 602 area code, but it just doesn't feel right to say that I'm gonna be kickin' it in the 480. So, for our purposes, I'm bouncin' to the 602.. ish.

Here are some fun Arizona images.
The Canyon (grand)
The Tempe Town Lake on New year's

Suh-weet
Palm Walk. You can see how it got its name. DUH! Runs north-south through campus. I've walked on it like....1,000 times.
The Bridge over University Ave. The beginning of Palm Walk.
A rare geological find discovered in Tibet and transported carefully back to ASU. They found it just like that, I swear.
Seriously... not at Thanksgiving though.
Go Devils!
