T, you know not of what you speak. It's ok that you were not given the privelege of being able to appreciate good tunes though.


You're making me scared of coming to Virginia. ;)

LOL, South East VA's okay (depending on the part!) Some places can almost be identical to northern suburbs, but drive a few miles in the wrong direction and it's Hicksvilles, USA (i.e. Gloucster, Poquoson...). Williamsburg is a nice area if you're into historical sites, but it's not very...diverse to put it nicely. Hey, at least they've got Busch Gardens ;) The William and Mary is campus is beautiful, too.

"Williamsburg is a nice area if you're into historical sites, but it's not very...diverse to put it nicely"  <----- This is what I'm afraid of.  I'm from a very diverse......and liberal.....and secular family.  I just finished spending a year in the Netherlands around only Dutch and Penn. people and it was a little too white bread for my personal comfort level.

...you aren't a northerner but rather a northeasterner, new yorker, chicagoan, midwesterner, northern californian, southern californian, westerner, new englander etc.

...you think of your family as being italian, polish, german, russian, jewish, english, irish, welsh, french, puerto rican, japanese, chinese, mexican, sweedish, swiss, indian, dominican or czech instead of white or black.

Never wear socks with sandals, that isn't a Northern thing, it is a dork thing.
