[I say A-L-B-U.... querque! Now we're talking. Close to AZ, I guess. Some good lightning out in that desert, I hear. Dry heat, and on a mountain so it actually gets cold. I actually like Alberwhatever a lot. Always wanted to visit.]
Then a bunch more places in Oregon/Wisconson (Eau Claire!) and Fayetteville, ArchKansas (is that near you, maryeve?) and Little Rock. Some how, "Light of the Ozarks" doesn't do much for me, other than make me think of Deliverance with the Brightness knob turned WAY up.
Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.
I didn't like this list. (it's cool they list 24 spots, though. Not like, a top five or ten)
("I say A - A! - L - L! - B - B! - U - U!....... querque!"]
So of course, I have to go back and fill out the geography section so that I select everywhere BUT New England, even if it is my IDEAL PLACE TO LIVE. Right. THERE ARE NO THUNDERSTORMS. >:(
It came out:
Sheboygan, Eugene, Corvallis, Albu... QUERQUE.. that damn song's gonna be in my head FOREVER.
Then Charleston (NOT Carolina), Eau Claire, Salem, Portland (both OR), Oshkosh/Appleton/Neenah, Wisconsin, then Arkansas (ARCHKansas, ArchEnemy of Kansas), Baltimore, Medford OR, Madison & Lacrosse WI, Frederick MD, Carson City (only 30 min to Reno, and relatively close to Sac, I guess), Bend OveR (it thinks I'd like Oregon... and Wisconson... WHY? Give me a little variety, at least) cause look Kenosha WISCONSIN... Milwaukee (Millewaukay... we're not worthy!) WISCONSIN... did I check a box that said I liked cheese somewhere? Because I really camembere it.
Santa Fe, NM (let's open up a restaurant there), Champaign/Urbana, where my dad used to live, then CHICAGO? Chicago is the only place where you can get SHOT with a KNIFE (other than Detroit) and then somehow, Hartford CT sneaks onto the list. Assholes.
SO THAT IS IT I AM SORRY I TewK UP ALL YORE TIME TKS 3 REEDING THIS THIGN!!!
