Traffic Report, Monday, January 03, 2005

Gentle visitors, we are ashamed to say that we're a day late with this latest report -- but, no matter. It's like the mail coming late in Nameless, Tennessee -- no-one notices.

Traffic here has been greater than in Nameless, which is virtually numberless. But, it's the internals that fascinate.

You see, gentle visitors, our tracking of you has gotten rather sophisticated, such that we now have more or less complete profiles on each of you who have strayed off the beaten path and found yourselves -- to your great alarm -- hereunder. These profiles include geographical, physiological, chronological, financial, and pyschological data.

Thus, we can report visits by one obscure Aleutian, a husky Siberian, several loud Thais, profound Malays, cozy Afghans, sour Kurds, and, of course, the usual young Turks, ancient Greeks, a particularly bright Cretan, yapping Maltese, salty Sardines, dusty Venetians, temperate Bohemians, greasy Poles, great Danes, poor English, as well as some delightful 15 year old Scotch.

There is the odd aloof Peruvian and decadent Dominican; but, our data is largely insufficient on these folks.

For all the world, it seems that this crowd would fit right into Eclectic, Alabama.

I would personally opt for Opp, Alabama, as well as covet the 15 yo, but that's just me. Cheers.

Opp, Alabama... Where OPPortunity Begins! (The only good scotch I have is only 12 years in the barrel and, no, you can't have any.)

"Blue Highways" (Nameless link) is actually a good one. (Not quite as good as the books Yanni has written about himself -- but, that's the gold standard.)

I shall (gladly?) forgo the scotch, since the Hoohooville town library supplied me with a 1928 copy of the Malay Edition of Youth, by Joseph Conrad, plus Heat-Moon's Journey into America. Now for some quiet corner...

And don't forget the full-bodied French, light and dark Puero Ricans, and the robust Italians. It's enough to make you want to stop at a bar. Barr, France, that is.
