Location Location Location

Ironically, one of the prompts this week is 3. You have to move away from your state in one month. List 6 destinations you wouldn’t mind relocating to- and as you know, we happen to be moving in less than two months, for real. Sooo, I figured it was appropriate. 

1. Because this isn't my home state, I don't consider this a cheat: my numero uno dream fantasy relocation destination would be...Northwood, in the borough of Hillingdon, United Kingdom.  
Good ole Northgate Street if we could swing it, otherwise I wouldn't mind living in Moore Park or in Megan's old house, which would be even BETTER bc we would stay in the same school. Whenever people hear that I'm bummed to leave, they invariably ask 'what do you like about it so much?' The answer is EVERYTHING. I don't know what I love so much.  It's ENGLAND!!! That's enough for me!!



2. Pawnee, Indiana. I never EVER want to live in the midwest. No offense at all to anyone who lives there, it's just not for me.  I need oceans. But Pawnee?!?! I could handle Pawnee. At least for a few years. But Pawnee when Andy and April still lived there.  Because they would totally be my friends. And as much as Leslie Knope is my spirit animal, I need a little April to cut the sweet. 





3. Narnia. And slash or the Middle Earth places in the Lord of the Rings movies. (I never read the LotR books (I know) but the movies had some gorgeous scenery.) But Narnia? I could handle Narnia.  I grew up in those books. Literally. I could probably get around without a map. 






4. Haven and slash or Derry and slash or Castle Rock, Maine. And I guess let's throw in the worlds from the Dark Tower for good measure. 
I mean, I don't particularly want to be terrorized by clowns or afflicted with a trouble or have to deal with the fallout of whatever created the Wastelands. But to live in a world that SK himself created? YES PLEASE.

5.  Twin Peaks, Washington. 
Again, not exactly looking to be murdered by whatever it was that got into Trey at the end there, but I've always wanted to live in the PNW and Twin Peaks seems just quirky enough for me.  And I feel like I'd be fast friends with the Log Lady.  Obviously. 





6. Hogsmead. You'd think I'd pick Hogwarts, but I hated school and never ever want to go back. I think I'd do fab in Hogsmead. I could work at the bar!! I could work in the candy store!! I could just sit at home all day and be a badass living in Hogsmead!!!




But I guess since SATO has issued us our tickets, it's getting pretty official: we'll have to make the Bay Area Adjacent work for us.  Not a bad problem to have, if you ask me ;)


Linking up with Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop with prompt 3:You have to move away from your state in one month. List 6 destinations you wouldn’t mind relocating to.

  2. Really fun take on the prompt! I am ready to head to Pawnee with you. That would be my number one. Though I do enjoy the pace of Twin Peaks (the theme is filling my head right now!) . Fast friends with the Log Lady?! Made me laugh!

    1. Pawnee WOULD be my number one...but I'm sort of terrified of the midwest. No idea why.

  3. Narnia <3 That would definitely be on my list too. It's so beautiful in the movie. The snow. So pretty. I'm still super jealous of you that you are moving to the Bay Area.

  4. Funny answers! I had to google who the heck April and Andy are. England sounds jolly good to me too. Sorry you have to leave, but you could do a whole lot worse than Northern Cal! Only two more months? I don't envy you with all that packing and unpacking and living out of boxes for a while. Hope it all goes smooth for you.

    1. Yeah, the living out of boxes is going to suck. But we're spending a month with family and I'm pretty excited to see nieces and nephews and all that jazz.

  5. Hahaha! These are great picks! I have a feeling after spending about 1/2 a day in Twin Peaks, WA you might be quickly moving to the next location on your list. ;)
