A couple of my friends' brothers live down there, both I think went to UCSB, one for sure, and have stuck around. I like the Valley's closeness to everything I could want to get to and a fair COL. There are a million reasons to not want to live here, and I agree with probably just about all of them, it's just that this is home. I got the joke, by the way, I'm used to it. I make the same ones about Bakersfield.
I jumped ship from RAW to the USA network cuz they showed the first 10 minutes of the Dawn of the Dead remake right before the end of Final Destination... (SPOILERS, sorry I don't know the hidden html thing) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
