Where are you from

Some of you (like me) are (probably foolishly) trusting souls who put it right out there, but seriously, where do you live, where were you born, what area do you most identify yourself with? The latter may say the most about you!

I was born in Dallas, Tx.
Grew up in an unincorporated area of Dallas. Went to schools in Rowlett, Texas.
I live on Lake Tawakoni. What area do I most identify myself with? I havent found it yet.

I was born in Queens, NY (well actually the hospital was in Brooklyn, but we lived in Queens), spent alot of time going back & forth to the "island" (Long Island, NY). I moved to central Florida 7 years ago~~~hate it! lol
I have no desire to move back to Queens either. I think I would like to live in Hawaii or Australia, but that is not going to happen!

hahha GK your one of "them"

Queens and kings county on on Long island but Ive never found someone from queens or brooklyn that will admit it.

Its like there is a wall on the border of nasau county. I just htink its histerical. some people will jsut fight and fight and fight about it.

either way the debate will continue.

I'll admit it...I think its because its always been a matter of how "congested" queens is, as opposed to LI....I always felt like I was in another world when I was there...like going to the country! lol
Now though Im thinking the island has gotten pretty congested itself
