Another poll

Squeaking under the wire to wish digitalwave a very happy birthday!

I am stunned and amazed to report that LANA LANG BEAT JOHN SHEPPARD in the official hair-off. I am using my shiniest Lana hair icon in celebration; apologies to the non-Lexana folks out there, but her hair in this shot mesmerizes me. My only explanation for Lana's victory is that no one let the SGA folks in on the fact that we were having this contest.

For some reason, a discussion about Stephen Colbert in my comments made me realize that I don't know where all of you folks on my flist are from. Now, I've seen those weird "plot you on a map via your IP address" things, which seem a little stalkery and privacy invading to me, but if you're comfortable saying in a general way where you live, take my poll.

Just wanted to point out that although I do live in the Northeast for now, I am a soon to be SoCal girl :) And I am dying to go. California is definitely special.

I identified Southeast, but my area's generally called the Mid-Atlantic - we're the border states, a damn Yankee to our Southern neighbors, and a Southern belle to our Northern. At least in my experience.

Yeah, I was a little cavalier about the US regions. I lived in New Jersey for 4 years, so I actually should know better.

i live in the DC suburbs and was torn, like amandajane5, but went with southeast too. maryland was a border state, too.

just to be precise, not to complain, honest! i'm a midwesterner at heart, forever.

I'm pretty sure that Kentucky is considering in the Midwest.

Thanks so much for the birthdays wishes, sweetie. :)

*hugs*

You're welcome! And yeah, I'd put Kentucky in the midwest, myself.

I live in England but I'm FROM New Zealand. It's important that people know this.
norwich36
Jul. 6th, 2006 07:12 am (UTC)
Yes, I can definitely see how that would be important!

I don't know why, England clearly being so SO much better. *nods*

Well, I live in California, but I'm *from* the midwest, where there is actual weather. Sometimes I feel it necessary to point this out. I just assumed Kate had a strong attachment to the place where the seasons are backwards correct from her perspective.
:P

I would like it to be noted that I am from NORTHERN England and not silly Southern England, which is full of Southerners and therefore, crap.

Okey dokey! (I'm missing the cultural reference here, I think, unless you're just insulting Kate.)

Southern England is where the toffs live. Northern England is full of common scum people. It has a delightfully higher crime rate, larger percentage of people in receipt of benefits than the south. It also has the honour of being the teenage pregnancy capital of europe.

I'm so proud. :D

I'm from the South :D

It's very expensive though, so I'd rather live in the North...

I second that. And having lived down thee with the toffs I have the comparative data to prove it. Hee!

Well, if we get pesky, I'm american too. Just not from the United States.

Hey, I did put USA, not America, in the top poll! "My fellow Americans" is a phrase the president always uses to address the country--it was a joke.

Oh I know! I wasn't serious! I just wanted to mess with you :)

Jul. 6th, 2006 09:57 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I figured, but you know, I have layers of free-floating guilt that are capable of attaching anywhere.

My fellow Americans, what region do you live in?

Texas!

Which breaks up among Southeast (through about Houston), Southwest (out by El Paso), Great Plains (the "panhandle" region), and, er, the I-35 corridor (from the Oklahoma border through Laredo, including San Antonio, where I live).

I did actually think about making Texas a separate category, but lj puts a limit on how many options you can list in the same question.

Technically I live in the Southeast. In my heart, I'm still in DC.

Oh, I understand. In my heart I still live in Bloomington.
