from the VA to the yorkshire coast...

i got different something in different area codes...

that is to say yesterday i bought a map of britain to post on the wall and put thumbtacs in and say "oh yes ive been there" or conversly "wow, id like to go there some day..." we all know how it goes... especially when someone drops a line like:

Random Person: "Oh, im going to Norfolk this weekend"
Me: (images of battleships, cigarette factories and navymen pop into head)

aka time to learn the island... which is actually harder than one would think.

example:

with place names like fairfax, dumfries, richmond, suffolk, norfolk and south ridding its total foreign-town!

er... wait...

i mean, whats stranger then places like bedford, bradford, york, and somerset???

WAIT...

i think im through the looking-glass here people.

When I heard that you had met someone from Winchester, I WAS compelled to ask which one.

The bad winchester...

which reminds me of a conversation i had last year in france:

Me: "i met someone from jersey today"
Janna: "which one?"
Me: "the bad one"

thought i would throw in the jersey commentary for good measure...
