    haha...do you like being able to go out and get things in the middle of the night ? If you do like me and there was 7-11 and 24hr delis then im sorry to say jonny its not here . If you want to work in Raleigh or the surrounding area's make sure you get a place with land because odds are if you move into raleigh its going to be just like nyc...Nothing =[ . And my family is hated for some odd reason by everyone in our community except our immediate neighbors. And we didn't do anything to them. To be honest I think its because im From the north a yankee and to make it worse im from nyc. But with that said its quiet you see the stars at night which still amazes me.

    Rob,

    Dont let them get you down, they are still so bitter we won the war! :-) And where I live the only thing to do in the middle of the night is poach and track coyotes and I am only 46 miles from work! I still miss getting Italian Ices in Corona, but having to deal with the rest of the element makes up for it.

    Jonny,

    Oh yeah man, I have a couple of NYC friends around here that are scattered around NC and I used that line last night while talking about my neighbors. It's not bad at times but Man do I miss Ralph's Ices in SI and going to MLB games . But luckily Ralph's has a location here in NC near Chatham county haven't been there yet though ;( . I went from not having any yard to having a acre and a pool. Not a bad upgrade lol Oh yeah SI was full of drama as I think everyone knows here its non existent really.
