I've grown up with the benefits of both suburban life (due to proximity to Dublin) and the clean air and safety of the countryside, and it's given me an appreciation for nature.

I'm almost tempted to post pictures, but I can't find any and it's still dark outside...

Western Ireland > eastern Ireland.

...although I'd really like to spend about a year ot two making sure. I could open a real Mexican restaurant or something.

Oh I agree wholeheartedly, I'm from the West myself. But as far as the east coast goes, where I live is pretty cool.

the trannies on Santa Monica Blvd. spice up my night every time. you'll not find the finest trannies anywhere else in all of the country.

seriously. i've seen trannies much hotter than i could ever hope to be as a female. and that's very, very sad.

I live in the West of the Middle of Everywhere.
West Midland England.
Not only to West Midlanders have the worst accent in England, but we also have the worst buses.Considering I've not been on other buses, this is just a guess. But you can't get much worse than WM buses.

But on a positive note;
We have more canals than venice.
We have many,many bars,restaurants and what are they called?? Nightclubs.
We have alot of theatres and art galleries (there are many art galleries).
We also have the biggest collection of Sainsburys and Tescos imaginable.

And then there's the all singing, all dancing, Bullring.






Personally, I don't think it's that great.

I can see stars (though not nearly as many as a bit further up north.

I'm forty minutes from Boston and thirty from Manchester (there's a small airport there, way less congested than Logan.)

Until September 17th, indoor smoking has been at the discretion of the establishment.

We have a neat town forest that is very accessible, never crowded and beautiful.

America's Stonehenge http://www.stonehengeusa.com/  (I thought it was lame when I went as a kid, haven't been back since, but apparently other people find it interesting.)

http://www.canobie.com/   Canobie Lake Park (Overcrowded and expensive for the most part, but living in town you're bound to know someone that can hook you up with free passes/food once there)

That's pretty much it.

You wouldn't like the bullring if you lived in Birmingham.
We have alot of things to do round here, but I don't do it. Infact, the only graffiti wall has a sign saying "please refrain from graffiting on this building"
I might get some pictures next time I'm round there. It's quite an odd place.
I don't go to skate parks.
Colmore Row is full of teenage kids who look the same. Long fringes, Eyeliner, tight jeans, dark clothes. You know the type? I feel intimidated walking through there.
So really, the Bullring is the only place where everyone can go without feeling overwhelmed - That is, if you're confident around large amounts of people. I'm not. And I dislike shopping. So, I like to go into the hills. Clent and Lickey hills are great.
And you can't help wondering when those escalators are going to just buckle under the sheer pressure of people on them.
