I'm currently in the middle of an e-mail conversation in which we're discussing which US state we'd like to live in.

I've stared at this screen for 15 minutes, I've not got a clue where I was going with this.

The topic of conversation has now changed to vampires in Speedos, which has completely changed my train of thought. Ho hum.

I'll start then: I think I'd be well suited to life in Hawaii. I have heard rumours that citizens are subsidised so they don't have to have jobs and can just concerntrate on lazing around looking chilled out by the tourist board. Much like in Jamacia.

Yeah - maybe that's where I was going....

Hawaii though, even with subsidies I don't think I could handle the heat. I have pale skin and as with most people with a tinge of ginge, many freckles. I can only get away with hanging around on beaches here because there are so many other pale people around, and I get to wear a wetsuit.

I'm better suited to a more temperate climate. At the moment, I'm torn between Vermont and Oregon. Oregon has a coastline, which give it bonus points. But Vermont has snow.

Alaska has both, but I'm not sure about the social life.

Hawaii isn't TOO hot. How about Washington? Its near Vancouver Island...the best place on earth!

California. More specifically, San Francisco. My most favoritist ever place in the States. If anyone offered me a job there, I'd go in a heartbeat. It has a temperate climate, it has sun, it has water. Doesn't have snow but it's not far to go to Lake Tahoe for that. All in all, a fabulous place.

Great shopping, too.

And a plentiful supply of LSD...

Right now I'd go for Montana, but only because Sweetheart lives there. The scenery is stunning but it does have an awful lot of gun toting nutters and recluses. As for San Fran, I'd love to go, everyone says its amazing.

San Francisco appeals to me, as well, and not just because I have an unhealthy obsession with Charmed.
I would probably opt for New York, actually.

San. Fran was okay, but smaller than I was expecting. And also a bit too gay for me. Not in a homophobic way you understand, but after two weeks of "totally impossible she fancies me, totally impossible she fancies me..." it felt a little lonely.

Anyway, I think everyone is missing the point here. Was it a Christopher Lee or Nosferatu sort of vampire?

Celeste - The best place on earth? If you're into whales, trees and retired people? Only kidding, it's not that bad - but at least it's close to Van!

Cleavers - I'm offering you a job there, you won't have an office as such... er, just stand around for a bit and if any men offer you money, just give me say.. 25%? You get to meet lots of people in this job too.

Chris - Montana sounds good, Yellowstone would be a cracking place to check out. Sweethearts always have that pull don't they? Almost makes you want to become a gun-toting nutter just as an excuse to go.

Fruit Head Léonie - Charmed is good, I've seen shedloads of episodes but I didn't know it was set in San Fran at all. I don't pay attention to storylines. I'd agree on the New York though, it's something that just has to be done really.

Huw - Too small and too gay. The new city motto? Totally. As for the vampires, I had a more Christoper Lee type in mind - just your regular Transylvanian blood sucker. Slicked hair, slightly hairy back (probably), pale skin and speedos on which someone has writted "Kick Me". He'd be unaware of that though, because of the lack of reflection. And thanks for actually picking up on the REAL meat and two veg of the post.

Why did you call me fruit head?

Nobody pays attention to the storylines in Charmed, everybody only watches for Alyssa Milano's breasts, myself included.

But, more importantly, why am I fruit head Léonie? Not, of course, that you're the first person to have said it.

At 2:29 pm, Blogger Curly thought it was best to say...

Léonie - In reference to your Orange for a head, personally I can't make it out from the pic though.

Who doesn't love the scorching heat and blood-sucking mosquitos? And rebel flags, and Spurs flags, and Mexican holidays, and gun racks on trucks with WAY too many accessories on them.

C'mon, Man.
