OK, so given the various names here, where would everyone go for a little rest and recreation?

Let's see:

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.

Let me see, this poetry needs to address the affixes for the jewels? As in:

The Flaming Jewel of Virility?

The Boys at Blizz lack credibility
In re Flaming Jewels of Virility
As the very naming
Of "virile jewels" flaming
Brings empathy for charred debility.

The Whirling barb is now explained
He seeks to cool his underkilt pain
The werewolves at the moon doth howl
Seems flaming jewels disrupted his prowl
The Paladins would Cast Holy Freeze
To quell the inferno in his Codpieze
The Necros bemoans his shrunken head
And the fire that makes him wish he were dead

So blizz, be less carless
With naming the jewels
Lest we end up with oysters
To feed to the ghouls!

Best I could do on short notice.

...and I would visit the lovely Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

Whew, what a rough holiday season. The insanity has just recently lowered to a dull roar in Retail Land, but were pretty hairy for a while, and I've really only had time to look at many of my Christmas (and birthday, I was born on the 22nd) presents, and then not even that's true of a few DVDs still in their shrink wrap.

And the kicker? I finally settle down for a day of rest after Christmas only to find out that my computer doesn't work. And just now I've got it back from the shop.

So I've had about a week of no computer work or play and am looking forward to another week of catch-up. I might be able to find the time to join the next RBD succession game in Civ 3, but I probably will be gone from Diabloland for at least a week and maybe longer.

So here's wishing everyone a happy belated holidays from your friendly neighborhood clone.

... where the smeg is Mallorca? :P

Actually, I have just returned from holiday at the beautiful sunshine coast.

Golden beaches as far as the eye can see. A unit 2 blocks from the beach for $150 AU (around $75 US) for the week for 6-10 people. It was awesome .

All our responsibilities were for the week was to sit back, watch movies, watch the cricket and go swimming .
