OK, so given the various names here, where would everyone go for a little rest and recreation?
Charis would go to Grace Land
Occhi would go to . . . Oklahoma?
King of Pain would go to the estate of the Marquis de Sade
Pete would go to Gibraltar (The Rock)
Griselda would head up to the mountains, to see Grissly Bears
Sirian would go to the Middle East (I recommend Israel, on a non-bombing week. Turkey -- Istanbul -- as a back up plan)
Skandranon would go to Sweden to see the SCAN Furniture Company Factory Outlet.
Hammerskjold would go to NYC and visit the UN
Cyrene would go to the Greek Islands, looking for the rocks where Sirens used to hang out and sing.
DrDouglass . . . Well, which nickname should I use? The AirBiscuit would go to Nuevo Laredo and eat Mexican Food, I suppose . . .
Hawkmoon would go to France, seeking Castle Brass
Celtic Hound would of course hit Ireland
Bolty: Would go to the nearest Sears Hardware Store
McFrugal: Scottland of course.
Xan: To Hearst Castle, in San Simeon CA
Drasca: To a NASCAR event (that was a reach)
Zed: would go to England, where they talk like that
Smegged would go to Mallorca, and procede to get smegged.
Any other ideas?
My nick's got about as much to do with the middle east as yours does with Oklahoma: IE, less than zero.
Did you crack open the Jim Beam a little early today, you rugged poet you? Here's a challenge for you: make some sense, any kind of sense, out of the names given to the jewels in LoD. Make us laugh, Occhi. Send the year out on a rolling note.
