Old Suburgatory

Waking up everyday at the same time and walking out the door to a familiar friendly face, a short drive from the city yet an even shorter drive to the country. Those are just a few of the things Suburgatory, USA has to offer. It offers the serenity of a backyard hammock and real life stop and go traffic on Main Street.
My experience in Suburgatory can be compared to the exploits of the Foreman basement gang in That's 70's Show. You never know whats going to happen next. In Suburgatory you can hang around in your basement with your friends and not get bored, or go down to the local pizza joint and grab a bite and speak your mind. In Suburgatory you can experience a lifetime of experiences without leaving your town, not to big, not to small, and all home. It all at your disposal, it's all what you make of it.
