"Curiosity Killed the Cat" "Meow"

Here's a question (okay, 3) for all my friends near and far:

1) Where do you currently live?

2) What are 3 good reasons to live there?

3) What are 3 good reasons to get the fuck out of there?

I'll start. Ahem.

1) Nishinomiya, Japan

2)
a) Exactly halfway between two awesome cities: Kobe and Osaka, so the shopping here rocks (and if I'M shopping, you KNOW it's gotta be good)
b) My paycheck is in yen (which is AWESOME right now because the USD sucks ass)
c) The weather here is Hawaiian perfect EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

3)
a) People make fish-faces at me when I speak in Japanese (wait, wait, wait....she's WHITE, and she's speaking in JAPANESE....I must have smoked some SERIOUS crack this morning....), which means that it takes a fucking CENTURY to get anything done around here (To sum up: Discrimination)
b) Did I mention discrimination?
c) The weather here is Hawaiian perfect EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

1. Los Angeles, California, USA
2. One: It's cultural ground zero. No exaggeration. Two: Oh man, you think Nishinomiya has perfect weather? Three: No matter who you are, what you do, or how you look, you always fit in. There's an excess of everything.
3. One: The word is TRAFFIC, which sounds meaningless until you've been here. No other city compares. Two: If you're a fan of seasons, forget it. They don't exist. Three: Awards shows. A pain in the ass. More traffic, annoying limos, circling helicopters.

My dilemma of the moment....
1) St. Louis, MO

2) Wash U is recognized here, so I could get a nice, non-crappy job
I know my way around here, and who to contact to get necessary supplies
My boyfriend is living here now and for the next year or so

3) No one in the US art scene cares about St. Louis
Its in the mid-west: I promised myself I'd get out of the mid-west ASAP
It's ST LOUIS (dying city, high crime rate, etc.) - enough said

But, long distance relationship....
