where you from? where you at?

Useless information. Ready?

This is where I live...

Oxford, Michigan. Home of boring food, bad drivers, for lease signs, pretty trees and shitty weather. Population approximately 3540. Yes, you read that correctly. We have one grocery store that sucks, if you want Starbuck's you now have to drive to either Lake Orion or Lapeer since they closed ours down, you have a 25-30 minute drive to get to a mall or Target or a 40 minute drive to get to a Walmart that you won't be afraid to shop in.

Interesting facts? I had to look at *5* different sites just to come up with these!

-One Oxford High graduate to have played in the NFL was Mike Lantry (University of Michigan / Dallas Cowboys). ~~There were others, but this guy was a Cowboy...nuff said.

-It was once home to Brace Beemer, radio's Lone Ranger.

-Oxford is known as "The Gravel Capital of the World" (whoopee).
***********

This is where I grew up and want to be now...
El Paso, Texas. Home of awesome Mexican food, fantastic weather, culture, color and the 2nd safest city in the entire United States. Population approximately 780,000. Everything you want it within at least 5 minutes of wherever you are at any given time.

Interesting facts? Found these *everywhere*!

-The tequila based drink known as the Margarita, was allegedly invented in the El Paso/Juarez region at a place called Tommy's Bar back on July 4, 1945 by Francisco "Pancho" Morales. ~~ Works for me!!!!

-El Paso Street, the city's first and oldest street, has seen the footsteps of Wyatt Earp, Pat Garrett, Billy The Kid, President William H. Taft and Pancho Villa, and was the scene of the infamous "Four Dead in Five Seconds Gunfight".

-Outlaw John Wesley Hardin is buried in Concordia Cemetery.

-El Paso is the only major city in Texas to be on Mountain Standard Time. When Cuidad Juarez, Mexico was on Central, you could actually celebrate New Year's twice by simply going over the border.

-El Paso is called the "Sun City" ~~ Waaaaay freaking better than the f'ing gravel capital if you ask me!

There you go. No reason at all. Just felt like it.

Peace, Love and (gravel capital? really????) Zombies \IiiI

I have heard so much about El Paso from you that I must visit it.
Oxford sounds as crappy as the town I live in. Blargh!
