we know where everyone lives, but where is everyone from?

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

I am a New Jersey Girl, long brightly painted nails, big hair and attitude.

***minus the big hair and the nails***

I miss the bakeries and the pizza in NJ, kinda miss the people in a LITTLE tiny way as well.

If you wanna go "way" back, all my grandparents where first generation (born in the USA) from Czechoslovakia, Poland, Ireland and France.

I was born in Spokane, Washington, but I grew up in and consider Puyallup, Washington my home (which is where I live too, if you didn't notice).

Typical small town...decent people, some typical small town mindsets, but overall it just feels right to me. It helps that literally my ENTIRE family with the exception of one aunt lives here. I know how to get around no matter where you put me, I know the best places to eat, to hang out, I know where all of the schools are, I know plenty of the damned people...just overall a nice middle class town that has unfortunately started growing dramatically over the past decade. We went from having no Walmarts to having two. :o

Plus, I'm a bit of your typical, outdoorsy, PacNW tree-hugger type. And I love the rain. I couldn't live anywhere else.

Ahhhh thanks for the warm fuzzy feeling folks! :)

Born & raised in Texas & have lived all over the state. I left for one year to live in New Mexico but I got back here as fast as I possibly could. I was born in Falfurias, grew up in Corpus Christi, have lived in San Antonio, Houston ( :puke: ), Amarillo and now in Dallas.

My dad - 3rd generation Italian both sides. My step-great grandfather was real Italian mafia in the old country.

My mom - Canadian - grandfather is Irish and English. Grandmother is German.

I grew up in central NY, lived in France for a year, went to school in Fredonia (way way western NY), now I live in Rochester. I like NY, but I travel out of it as often as I can! (I need vacations to remind me that I like my home.)

Personally I think that Essex is a fabulous place to grow up :P

I'm a Jersey girl too, I still have moderately long nails and love the jersey shore, but NEVER had big hair (no Aqua Net for me, thank you very much!), didn't drive a guidomobile, and lived for rock concerts at the Capitol Theater.
And while there are those who dis my state, you still can't get a decent slice or bagel anywhere else but in this area :P .

I'm part Alaskan Native (although there's a neat website...http://www.cowboyfun.com/iam/ ) that would beg to differ ;-)
I was born in Juneau, Alaska and raised in Southeast Alaska (Petersburg mainly) and also at times we lived in Eastern OR. My heart is in Alaska but I live in Eastern WA.
