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*

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

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*
