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

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

Born in small town LaGrande, Oregon - lived in Cove, Oregon (520 people, 24 in my graduating class).

Spent junior year of high school in Japan.

Moved to LaGrande, then NY, then Portland, then The Dalles, now Vancouver WA where I seem to be rooting.

Going back generations, I'm a shezamut. :D

I'm a mutt too. Mostly English, obviously some Irish in there (or a certain Germanic tribe that was also known to have red hair)...your guess is as good as mine. :|

Japan - good, but I wish I'd done it in college not high school. Think I'd of gotten more out of it and been less homesick. I still miss some of the food - but not any of the raw stuff! :o

When we were in Eastern OR, we lived in Helix, with 10 other kids in my high school classes! If you're from La Grande Luokkala, you MAY know where Helix is!! Population 100...lol

I have lived on the North Shore (I've noticed a lot of people say they're on the "North Shore" whenever they live north of Boston, but I actually live on the shore) of MA for almost my whole life. I did live out in Amherst for 3 years while I went to school, but I got tired of having to run from my car to the apartment after dark terrified that someone frequenting the crack dealer's place next door would do something to me. Even when I lived on campus there was still the ominous fear that something would happen, seeing as how while I went to school there there were 3 deaths in one semester (though none murders), multiple stabbings, a dead baby found in a trash can, a goat's head found in a sink, and a road called "The Rape Trail" which lived up to it's name.
I'm happy to be back on the rich bitch NS area of MA where the worst that happens is high school kids break into your car, sit and drink beer in it, leave the empty cans and take a cd or two. It's nice not fearing for my life anymore.

I was born in NYC and lived in Brooklyn and Staten Island. Had the high Aquanet hair too and big attitude. I got dragged out to Long Island my senior year of HS to snob land. I hated everyone but as the years have gone on I have calmed my Brooklyn attitude down a lot. Although my mother says I sound like I am from Canarsie. But we lived in Bensonhurst and Bayridge. Go figure.
