Yes, my formative years (from a language point of view at least) were actually in the Home Counties.

I'm from the wonderful town of Monticello, Minnesota. I live in Kentucky currently. Even though you wouldn't know it, as quite a few people (all Americans) have asked me if I'm British or Irish because of a case of hyperdontia I used to have, which apparently left me with an accent.

And for those not familiar with european countries, all too often we're called dutch - but that's just so wrong, lol. Dutch people comes from Holland (Netherlands)

Yay! Midwesterners for the win!

(I wish I was getting pounded with snow. That's just where I'm from, and unfortunately haven't lived there in 8 years. It's 60 degrees F out here right now.)

I hail from the frigid northern wastelands known as Canada... we need to really get the polar bear problem in Toronto fixed...

Another Canadian here. I was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (which really was a frigid wasteland), but my family gradually kept moving to the west until they hit Vancouver, BC, which is where I currently reside.

I was born somewhere on the south coast of England, and I remain there to this day (when I'm not at university).

I was born in the South. I was born in Augusta, Ga and then I moved to Canton, Ga where all the mountains are then when I graduated High School, then moved with my mom to Middle Ga ( Griffin) where I'm at now.

I have always been a Sothern Girl, with a cute Southern Drawl ( that was for you Step)

I was born in Saint Louis, MO but lived most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon where my parents and family are from.

Right now I am living in the San Francisco bay area.
