I have no idea. The Long Winters boys rode them into town, pelting the children and elderly with small pieces of candy. One old man lost an eye. Then MacGyver jumped out of a basket and proceeded to mop the floor with John. Literally. Man, that floor was SO CLEAN! Suddenly, I'm getting a sharp pain...

That's not Natalie Wood, actually. That's his college girlfriend, Serena.

He was never quite the same after they found her... but let us not discuss such things.

Yes, bacon. Cooking it in quantity does awful things to velvet wallpaper, as Merlin's kitchen proves.

If he'd known you were coming, the case would have been shifted under the bed itself.

The comic is, after all, printed with Real Kiss Blood. For some, it's a priceless treasure.

It isn't Asia at all, I'm afraid. Here, this should clear things up.

i am from sub-saharan africa. it's true. Really? I think the Long Winters would be well received in Cape Town. Is that where you are? Haven't been there in ages. Most of my relatives there have fled to happier climes, but not all... not all. when the long winters played here a riot broke out. 9 cam...

I am, as you have no doubt just noted, prone to wander. So is your family, literally. So far we've heard about relatives in Liechtenstein, Capetown and of course Great Uncle Ignatz in Goch. Well, it's the consequence of having parents who are immigrants, and whose parents were themselves immigrants...

Thank you, technology!

He's great fun. If you do see him read, speak with him afterwards and tell him I send warmest regards.

Oh, and if you have a chance, exchange mix tapes with him. His musical scope is rather wide, and pleasing.

Long and bitter years of experience, I'm afraid, moreso than any native aptitude. That and an adventurous youth as a birdwatcher and junior naturalist.

Seagulls? no. smaller (sparrow size), brownish. (but thanks for the thought herb!)

It seems likely that the word has its origins in the French quatre , meaning four, and the Scottish wampish , meaning to wiggle, twist or flop about. The French element, it is generally agreed, came via "quatre-corner," colloquialized as "catty-corner" and then "kitty-corner," meaning diagonally acr...

I'm stubborn enough to claim to be from the Netherlands rather than Holland. And yes, there is more here than just Amsterdam - that city is so overrated. Have you been to Goch? It's just across the border from Nijmegen. Notable for being the home of my Great Uncle Ignatz and an imposing array of Ph...

Having just returned from the beautiful city of Dublin, I strongly resent this – for your own safety! You have no idea what these people are capable of, as nice as they usually are. Telling an Irish they’re from GB is like telling a New Yorker he’s from New Jersey, just worse. YUP...
