Where In The World Are You From?


Dildo, Newfoundland


It’s time once again to ask, “Where in the world are you from?”

Tell us what town or city or corner of the world you live in.

MJ said...

I'm in Vancouver but want to be back in Ontario where I'm REALLY from. Fecking rain here driving me nuts.

Isn't anyone here from Conception Bay, Newfoundland?

You're a frisky lot today.

Ang said...

Toronto here, but originally from Nova Scotia. I use to live on Dicky Drive (I'll never forget growing up and never wanting to tell anyone where I lived).

Shna said...

Stratford, PEI reporting for duty (ha ha I said doodie hee hee)

John said...

Hey Shna, my late auntie was from Stratford, PEI. I visited her there last summer (she lived in seniors' home on Mutch Drive). Originally she was from Georgetown, like the rest of my family.

Jacqueline said...

all kidding aside...born in Barrie Ont. - raised in Surrey, BC...escaped to Toronto.

Surrey Chix Rool!!!

John said...

Oh yeah, bairn and raised in Saint John, NB where tonight, you see the Saint John Sea Dogs take on Les Drakkar de Baie-Comeau in hot Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

Now living in Verdun, overlooking beautiful downtown Montreal.

Lori said...

ex-Surrey girl here, (can you ever truly be an ex-Surrey girl,, I think not), now a Nanaimo-ite. Gotta love a sign on the way to the ferry that says Boundry Bay Dyke Access with an arrow,, I got a pic of it, makes me laugh laugh laugh.

Jacqueline said...

WOO LORI SISTAH!

Where/when did you go to school?

Lisa and I found out that we were in Surrey/Delta at the same time

lori said...

I went to Henry Bose Elementry, finish grade seven in 1977. I dont think it is there anymore. I lived just off King George Hwy and 132nd. I lived in Whalley till 1991, then came to Nanaimo. I am guessing you spent part of your youth at the Stardust Skating rink?

Shna said...

Hey John - I am originally from N.B, just moved here for school and never left! I have only been living in Stratford since April, moving back to Charlottetown soon.

kowy said...

mj - My dad's ex was from Joe Bat's Arm, just up the coast from Conception Bay. I guess once he left the bay, Joe Bat had to resort to using his arm?

As for me: Nuns Island...the part of Verdun Qc that doesn't like to admit it's part of Verdun.

Jacqueline said...

Okay - Corrie Canuck/Classmates...

AHP Matthew, William Beagle and graduated from Queen Elizabeth 1984.

I went 'home' last year and went into the Stardust. First time in 22 years.

It hasn't changed.

Send me your email addy to glacia at gmail and I'll send you the pic.

Jacqueline said...

and I lived on 132nd and 98th.

At this point, our international readers are thinking, 'Wot? are there only 34 people in Canada?'

MJ said...

I knew this blog was crawling with East Coasters but I had no idea the Surrey/Whalley/Delta element had such solidarity. What I want to know is where are the Albertans? I know you're out there! Speak up for yourselves.

mare said...

john: come on, don't mock the sea dogs. you know there's nothing else to do around here.

mare in uptown saint john new brunswick, who instead of going to the sea dogs game is going bowling at the bowlarama.

Jacqueline said...

I worked at the Prince Charles McDonalds.

Lisa said...

Started in Ottawa, moved to Victoria BC in 1976. Moved to North Delta BC in 1981 & left back to Ottawa in '85. Hey Lori I worked at the Whalley McDonalds on the King George Highway in Surrey from 83-85. I left Ottawa for the wilds of Toronto & Scarberia 4 years ago. BC girls rock it OK.

John said...

Mare you got me all wrong, the Sea Dogs game is on the local cable access channel "Vox" here in Montreal. I'm all exited, except that it's conflicting with my strict Friday night CBC schedule. Can't miss 22 Minutes and Hatching, Matching, and Dispatching, can I?

"My gentle German Jesus!"

Lori said...

Where you Corrie fans back then too? My mom got me hooked as a kid,, cause lets face it,, it was safer to have your daughter home wathing Corrie after school than running wild on the streets of Surrey,,, lol lol lol.

Jackie said...

Medicine Hat, Alberta here. Born here, but lived in PEI for 4 years, during that time I got adictied to Cornie, and then proceeded to get my friends and family addicted, and now I'm back in Alberta

Ginny said...

Ex Surrey girl here too! Now living in northern BC.

Special hello to Zelda in Huntsville, just up the road from my town of Bracebridge! I'm hoping there are enough of us in Muskoka to have a Corrie pingfest sometime!
