gatezilla: (Migraine! (arwen_elvenfair))
Greetings from the coldest, most boring town on Earth. Well, I suppose it's not actually the coldest. But I'm pretty sure we've got most boring sewn up. I always forget just how boring my hometown is until I come back to visit. It's shocking, really, how very little actually goes on in this town.

People always say things like, "Ooh! You grew up in Vermont! That must have been wonderful with all the snow and the skiing!" Or, "Vermont is so beautiful. You're so lucky you got to live there. Why would you ever leave?" But these people haven't actually ever had to live in Bennington, Vermont. They haven't had to drive an hour to get to a decent movie theatre. They haven't had to sit at the intersection on Main Street for half an hour because yet another moron truck driver doesn't know that he can't make a left-hand turn at Four Corners without taking out the lobby of the Putnam Building. They haven't had to deal with the selfish old rich people who'd rather see the youth of this town crammed into an old and rotten junior high school instead of shelling out what probably amounts to pocket change to build a new school where there's enough space and enough acreage for decent sports fields and wouldn't it be nice if our kids didn't end up with asbestos in their lungs while they got an education?

Plus? I don't even ski.
