Drove my chevy to the leavee, but the leavee had left.

I love to travel. I love to see different parts of the world. I haven't been to nearly enough places at this point in my life and sometimes feel stifled by my career path. If I want to travel, shouldn't I have picked a job like Hotel Reviewer or Travel Channel Correspondant? The thing about traveling that I love is meeting different people. You can tell a lot about the area by the people that populate it. Words that come to mind:
Peru: simple, loving, family-oriented, know how to party.
Alaska: hard-working, strong, enduring, outdoors, know how to get liquored up.
Virginia: career-minded, packed cities, restuarants, good shows, know how to drink people under the table

Which of these places best describes me? Good question. Clearly I know how to drink people under the table--I have in mind a certain incident in '94 that ended with a victory spent with my head in the trashcan. But I digress.

The point of all this rambling is not to see which place describes you. Although I do think it would be interesting to hear which words people associate with the place they live (i.e. Rexburg, SLC, Cali, Massachusetts).

The point of this rambling is to say that I hate moving all around. I always miss people I've met. I suppose that if I stayed in one place my entire life, people would be leaving me rather than me leaving them. I'd rather be the leavee. Not the levee. The Leavee.

Let's see how would I be defined by outsiders...My perspective of Rexburg: boring, stuckup, secretive about their kids disgressions, narrow-minded, too many republicans, one cool family (i guess make that two for my husband) to ever come out of growing up in Rexburg (yep you would guess it - my family)
Other peoples perspective of Rexburg: great Mormon town, home of BYU-I - great education, family-orientated, highest percentage of republicans, religious, small town atmosphere.

Can you tell I don't love Rexburg!!!

Oooh, I'll do Rexburg too.
Rexburg: It's supposed to be a giving place, right, but the lady at the grocery store always ALWAYS gives me a dirty look when I use WIC checks to buy milk. Too many trucks, too much snow, not enough TGI Fridays, just enough bears.

Well to go with the theme, because themes always come in threes, let me talk bout' Rexburg......

Where to begin. Rexburg: as previously stated, too much snow that they never plow and use stupid Redrock. No 7-11's, everything is closed by 10, the craziest police blotters, The Matrix Reloaded(need I say more), Bunkhouse, The Walmart, no jaywalking, the only sit down restaurants are Mexican(and they are all crappy),it's so cold your nostrils freeze everytime you walk outside, the bootman.

okay, so that I was a lot of complaining, but I didn't mind Rexburg too bad. I would never live there for good.

as an addendum to penguins, the other day the police blotter reported a complaint about students who were having a dinner party in the middle of the round about, with a table and chairs and everything.
