Centerville, OH? The one in Southeast OH on SR 32, or the one south of Dayton?

South of Dayton. It was such a small town then I loved that there was a forest behind the apartment complex. My mom wasn't too pleased about it... fear of ticks and fleas.

I miss fireflies.

Sweet! That's my home!

Which apartment complex?

This was over 25 years ago... I remember it was not too far from the Stop N Go! Who knows if it's still there. We lived in probably 4 different complexes while we were there. It's really amazing how much I can remember from that time despite the fact that I wasn't even old enough for kindergarten.

Sounds like you didn't live far from me! My parents live just down the street from Bill's Donuts, on Bradstreet.

Stop and Go, on Franklin near Main, is still there, I think. It's changed names a couple of times and I was in kindergarten when it first started changing, but the building is still there. Those two ugly buildings that are on the corner of Franklin and Main are still there, too.

Most of the local landmarks have changed quite a bit. Bills' Donuts is still there, though his kids run it now. There are now two water towers on the hilltop where they built Tower Heights and Stingley. Everything is four lanes, and they are building like mad.

C'ville has changed a lot in just the time since I have left for college. I'd imagine you wouldn't recognize much at all!

I bet if you put right in front of one of the places I lived I wouldn't recognize it. I might recognize the community pool where I learned how to swim but mostly what I remember were the bugs, lizards and squirrels as well as yoyos, hammer head shark coloring books and getting in trouble for peeing in the bathtub.

I lived in the same Centerville, OH for a split-second in fourth grade (I guess that would've been around '86). They were eventually huge rivals with where I graduated high school from—Beavercreek. (At least in the marching band program.)

What a small world it is.

Very small that two people on my friend list lived there. The big question is did either of your parent ever work for NCR?

No, and they didn't work for the Air Force either. My friend Grant's dad did work for NCR.

Does Mead count?

My dad worked for the Air Force, so he was there at Wright-Patterson AFB, and that was why I ended up spending so much of my life in Ohio (*eep*), despite previously moving around every two years or so during my childhood.

I knew one family whose father worked at NCR. I later met someone in Seattle that worked for NCR as well.

I'm still waiting until I've lived in another place for longer than 15 years so I can say that I've lived there longer than I lived in Ohio.

It truly is odd that, once you cross the Rockies, there are no fireflies. I can't figure that out. It seems like such a strange anomaly; the environment is not all that different. I get that they can't get over the mountains on their own but I would think that someone would have inadvertently imported them or something. Considering all the other non-native flora and fauna that have gained a foothold in the west, it seems like an odd omission.

Can Paris Hilton really sing?
monkeyx3
Feb. 15th, 2005 03:11 am (UTC)
HA HA HA HA! I'm sure she can't. The song is called and is about Paris Hilton but it's sung by Mu. Imagine the music of Depeche mode, Eurasure and Petshop Boys... now have one of the crazy girls from Shonen Knife screaming about Paris Hilton. It's very funny and what I would use to drive my parents nuts if I was into that sort of thing still. Here are the Lyrics:

Shake your body body
Move your body body
jump your body body
Shake your body body
Paris Hilton!

Go Ahead!

Say what!!

I'm the richest party dumb girl
Would you like to look at my sex tape
natural beauty, photogenic
always ready to pose for nice shoots
put my poppy Chanel dress
he sleeps Louies Vitton bag
Silver Spoon, champagne bath
mom I want that one, please

lather, rinse, repeat
It makes no sense but it's quite funny and has a great beat.

"there was a really tragic section..."

You're tellin' me. Try being an artistic outcast in some of those towns. Spokane was the same. At one point I was held over my apartment complex's balcony railing three floors up with a knife to my throat while my roommate's boyfriend accused me of sleeping with her (the roommate, who was a stripper at the Deja Vu, to boot.)

I Los Banos I had the local preacher's daughter consistently trying to get me into her bed because I was the "bad boy" in town.

I should really post about those.

P.S. I miss Fable! You bastard, you've introduced me to some digital version of crack, haven't you? Haven't you?!?!

Long life the Bay Area infestation from former Ohio people!

I grew up in Steubenville and lived in Cleveland. :)

Mine is so easy.
San Antonio, TX 1969-96 (6 addresses)
Austin, TX 1996-97 (1 address)
Providence, RI 1997-now (4 addresses)

Ask me where I've been, though, and that would be a much longer entry.

That's pretty stable. I did this post too, and surprised myself with the amount I'd moved around as a kid.

You've always been close to the Pacific. That must be why your writing calms me down and makes me think of distant shores.

But if you notice I have lived in California 28 of my 30 years. I have never been to Texas, so I really don't know what it's like, I hear so many conflicting things, and have met so many great people who grew up in Texas. Texas surely isn't that bad to have so many great people.

But on the other side of the coin, get your butt in gear and go where you want to go!
