This is the funniest thing I've seen in weeks. From [livejournal.com profile] vsmallarray, the charts and graph project of Dorothy Gambrel, artist for [livejournal.com profile] catandgirl and [livejournal.com profile] donationderby.

Update February, 2011: Somehow this post has become the most popular one on my journal for comment spam, so I've disabled comments.

North, South Carolina is in the center of the state, south of Columbia.
West, Mississippi is in the center of the state, just east of I-55.
West, Texas is in east Texas, between Dallas and Waco. Note that "West Texas" (no comma) is frequently used to describe the area of the state near El Paso.

Edit 2/3/2009: Northwest, North Carolina is in the southeast part of the state, up the railroad from Wilmington.

Fortunately, they're all small and insignificant. Just like Podunk, VT, Podunk, CT, Podunk, MI and the other Podunk, MI.

I just had a fairly long dream (I woke up at least twice during it) in which I had moved to Dublin for work. But if I was in Ireland's capital, several things weren't quite right:
  • Nobody spoke in brogue.
  • At no point in my dream did it rain; I even noticed this in the dream and wondered about it.
  • Nobody's hair was orange.
  • The dream focused on a Methodist church.

Although it didn't feel particularly Dublin, it deed feel rather Euro. The church building (at least 100 years old) was the length of a city block and half of it was flats unrelated to the church. My flat was essentially a large drafty room with hardwood floors and funky windows. Lots of people were drinking tea. There weren't any SUVs driving around. I realized a few days after arrival that I had forgot to set my watch ahead by seven hours.

If you go out to dinner with a map maker, you'll be dining a la cartographer.
