Some days I'd love to "suffer" from this!

Yes, like the proverbial sailor,there have been days when I've wanted to tuck a keyboard under my arm and march inland until someone says, "What's that?" And there I will settle down and stay.

I think those places are getting harder to find in this country these days . . .

I know this syndrome well. I have travelled just way more than enough, now? I like being at home. My husband and I are at odds about this, he loves nothing better than to sit in a stuffy (cigarette smoke-filled) car eating junk for days as he watches the towns go by at 55 MPH minimun. I guess the point of traveling escapes me (because it currently resides on the tippy-top of my little head...?)

My grandmother's version was, "I'm gonna tie a snow shovel to the roof of my car and drive south 'til they ask what it is."

Given your local weather, how long before you follow your grandmother's advice?

A couple of years ago, Nags Head, NC was hit by a snow storm and ran out of snow shovels. They don't usually get that much snow there, and usually use snow shovels to shovel sand in the summer after storms.

And a dromedary, of course, is a place where they stop on the way to buy soft ice-cream (I'm presently writing an entry for this term for Wikipedia)....

If there are enough students to put on amateur theatrical presentations in conjunction with serving icecream, it's a dramadairy.
