Wow...there's people here from all over. It seemed to me that most people were from America or England, but it seems there's quite a lot of people from other places, as well.

Huzzah! We're spreading! [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

I live in Belgium.
And I really don't know much to say about that.
It would be fun to know if there are fellow belgians here, somewhere, never met one so far.

It is interesting how everyone from a reputed farming center has to loudly make the claim that they are NOT farmers or "cowpeople!" And on that note, I live in rural Tennessee, USA, where I am the only one in my area who is NOT a farmer! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] And there isn't even a town near me...if there were, there would be about 25 people in it--maybe. I think there are probably more Ents than people here, but they're not giving themselves away just yet!

Cheers,
Lyta

Cheers [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] In my part of the world we have hardly any people, but no Ents. I'd like an Ent for a neighbour, there's plenty of forest for him to live in [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Not only do I live in a country some people actually think is the capital of Sweden, but I even live far away from anything that might be considered civilisation. Ah well, I don't mind too much, as long as I've got my computer I'll survive. I'm moving as soon as I'm done with secondary school though. Lately I've been thinking about moving to Scotland [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I live on the west coast! Technically. I actually live in the large, sweltering, pit of Las Vegas, Nevada. Despite what may be your first thought, i have absolutly NO FUN living here. It smells funny when it gets above 115 degrees (f), which is every day from May to September.
Dont come here, any of you. you will die a painful, slow, boring, hot death.

Mine is a long story... I was born in Paris (though I am mostly Sicilian by blood), lived there and in London for most of my life, and now I go to the University of Maryland and live in good old College Park, MD. Oh, and I lived in Southern California for a year and a half when I was 5-6 years old. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

First 34 years (I think)--Kansas, within 50 miles of where I've been for 16--Kansas City, Missouri. Within easy distance to inner city, wheat fields, suburban malls, and nice boho type places, too!

I am excited to know that we are all over the world and so connected at the same time because of a love for eternally giving stories and their brilliant and graced author.
