I just realized I never said where I was from. Okay so I'm from a slightly large city in Northern Indian called Goshen. We aren't known for much around here besides RVs, and having our crazy Mennonite affiliated Liberal Arts college. And Zig, you'll have a wonderful time in Chicago. I love going there whenever I get the opportunity.

 

Now back to studying for finals.

Thanks, MND. I'll only be there for a couple of days of meetings and at least one night of carousing, so I hope to make the most of it.

Much success on your finals!

Well, I'm from Belmont, Massachusetts. It's right next to Boston.

The Crown Princess of Japan went to the local high school (no kidding). Apparently, Belmont High is the second-best high school in the state.

There is an abundance of Beatles fans in this town.

Oh I haven't seen this...

I've lived on a ranch in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada for most of my life now, but today I have left home to ski competetively in Vermont for a year, and see where it takes me. Who knows where I'll end up after that.

I'm from a very small town in western Kentucky called Kevil, which is near the city of Paducah. It's about 2 hours away from Nashville. I'm within a 30 minute driving range of the Ohio, Missouri, and Mississippi rivers, and I can go see where they all 3 converge. If anyone in the US and possibly Canada can remember the flooding in May, June, and July that was covered on the news, that's where I'm from. 90 degree summers and below 20 degree winters are usual. Nothing else special, I guess, except that we have the only swamps in the state of Kentucky.

I'm from a relatively new city called Milton Keynes, it's about an hour away from London. It was built using a grid system, so it's apparently famous for it's roundabouts. (It's virtually impossible to get lost in a car here.) I do really like it here, and living in England in general really. a-hard-days-night-john-1

I'm too lazy to check if I've already posted this, so for the benefit of anyone who's also too olazy, I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah. (I'm really from West Valley City, but if I say that to anyone from out of state [read: outside of Utah], they Look At Me like that confused Ringo smiley that I can't post.)

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Ottawa, Ontario here. (Well, just outside in one of those suburbs, but we amalgamated about 10 years ago, so yes.) Love it here, but if I won the lottery, I'd move to Montreal, the home town of my parents.

I grew up in Bath, England, but I've lived in Cardiff, Wales for pretty much all my adult life. It wasn't part of the plan.

Bath is known for Georgian architecture and Roman baths. Cardiff is famous for Doctor Who being made here. What's interesting or notable about your hometowns?

CARDIFF! I live about an hour away in Swansea! Swansea is the hometown of a Beatlemaniac called Amy. Is that fact accurate enough?

Most of you know this, so there's really no point in posting it, but I don't care...

I'm from America. I won't say exactly where, but it's not on the West Coast... or in the middle of America...
