For some reason, several people have questioned me today on the boards regarding where I live.

Has nobody heard of my little town?

It does exist, trust me people!!
For those who would like to place it on a map:

    I knew where Washington was before :p I don't know any one from there, and I live nowhere near!

    Therefore, I must be a freak!:)

    I heard of it before then! :D

    I thought she lived in Sunderland, anyway...but it turns out she's a Washingtonite.

    And a Mackem :p

    I bet no one's heard of Totton, either (the littleish town near Southampton where I sometimes reside).

    Ah yes but I like where I live, and if I were going to say I lived near anywhere, it would be Sunderland :p

    but you knew that already....
    I did know that indeedy!

    And Becky - so what? My football team are rubbish, I am not ashamed to admit that. We're having a relegation party tonight. Plus, I live in Sunderland.

    If you tell someone you live where you don't actually live then it seems you are ashamed of where you do live, I love where I live and I am sure people will have heard of Darlington!

    Why don't you say Middlesbrough then, or somewhere that you at least live near?! Maybe Durham really is best, rather than Newcastle?

    I am near Newcastle, I'd say 30 ish miles is not far away, is it?
    To be honest I've probably visited Newcastle more times than Middlesbrough.

    Hmmm I dont know, but im still gonna say im near Newcastle because of all the people I've spoken to over the internet almost everyone has actually heard of it :)

    Well you know I have mate. Got mates that live in Calmore and I drink up the Testwood quite a lot. Spent a fair bit of the time in the Players as well (dive). I went to Totton college for a year too, to retake an A level after Barton Peveril!

    There's life, there's death, and then there's Totton.

    Bet even lees people have heard of Nomansland. I know Eb had, cos his Auntie lives near, but I assume that's about it!

    (PS - what ever happened to Eb?)
