The Post Office and EHWG  
I was puttering around online today and wanted to order a special item from a barely-translated-into-English website. It was fine and I was doing a reasonable job of navigating and filling out the forms until I could NOT get the address to be accepted by the online form. I tried a variety of tactics before finally hitting on the correct one - the form would not accept a simple personal name and street address, it required a house name. :)

There is now a package winging its way across the pond to me bearing an address block that begins "Eithni's Home for Wayward Girls..." *grin*

Just thing of how this is going to alter your junk mail stream... :)

That's just what I was thinking. It will be interesting to see if/how that spreads. :)

When my sister-in-law was going to Cornell, in (eastern town with no big stores nearby), she did all of her clothes shopping via catalogs (this was before teh interwebs). Apparently, receiving the Victoria's Secret catalog gets you on some very interesting mailing lists.

under the stairs would be entirely too near the linen stashes - you'd never sleep. ;)

When I was in college, we had stuff sent to our house as "The Nebraska Home for Unwed Fathers"

I want to join! I'm already a student at Karlita's School for Wayward Girls, but I bet she'd let me transfer. <3

Heh. Cute! I may need to develop a formal logo now...

Bwaaaaahaaaaa! That's too dang funny!

BTW, I love the "Wayward Girl's" icon... I think we need badges. As an Alumni, can I have a badge?!?

Actually, that's just my friendly, perky icon... I should get a logo for the Home, though... *plots*
