Born There

There's no more boring place to be born than Connecticut. It's a cookie-cutter, WASPY, run-of-the-mill state and invokes no form of reaction from people when I tell them that's where I was born. And really, with my closet stocked full of J.Crew clothing and a working knowledge of nautical knots, it's no surprise that's where I come from. (In fact, I'm a third generation Nutmegger) Because I'm from the 5th most boring state in the Union, I'm always fascinated to find out the strange places people were born. I've gone through some well-known celebrities and listed the unexpected location of their births. (Actual places - not in the back of taxis)

Wait a minute. George W. Bush was born in Connecticut? Does this mean he's a Red Sox fan? There's something not right about that.

I too was born in the Constipation State! But was quickly whisked away to Long Island.

I was born (on today's date, as a matter of fact) in North Wilkesboro, NC. Please don't talk to me about Connecticutt being boring.
