I'm originally from Cleveland, OH and currently living in Roswell (suburb of Atlanta), GA.

I think Ohio is technically considered part of the Midwest, but I'm going with "Up North."

Now, when you say "from", do you mean where I was born, where I was raised, where I lived most of my life, or where I'm currently living? Because they all have a different answer.

I took it to mean "What was your location when you finally escaped the womb."  If anybody asks where I am from, I say Ohio even though I was raised and spent most of my life down south.  I just don't identify myself as a southerner.  It's an odd mindset down here and I just don't feel like I am part of it.  My entire family is from up north, so I am pretty well insulated.  Besides, most people in the suburbs of Atlanta are from up north, and judging from my friends, a full half of that half are from Ohio as well!

I prefer the term "carpetbagger" thanks!

Hmmh. Well, let's see. I was born in Sweden, lived there for a year, was moved to Greece, lived there for two years, which was followed by moving to Finland, where I resided for about, oh, 14 or so years, and am currently located in Florida. I moved down here about 8 ago or so.

I was born in England and lived there until I was twelve. I then moved to Hamburg, Germany and was there for four years after which we moved to the U.S. (meaning I have been over here now for 14 years or so).

I visited Hamburg once, when I was a kid. I clearly remember that they had one whoppingly enormous toystore. At the time, it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. smile
