Born in (Boston) MA, and feel very much at home having lived here almost my entire life, but for maybe 3 or 4 years when my father was stationed (Navy) in Erie, PA and then Guilford, Conn.
Definitely feel like a "bean-towner/North-Easterner" culturally, politically, and for the academic/intellectual/medical/jazz and music/arts scene, services, opportunities, et cetera.
Besides, wheh else would anyone know what I mean when I (used to) say something is "wicked pissah!". Still use "wicked" (very) maybe a coupl'a times a week! :)
