Thanks for you visit, and please come back soon

Just in case I needed any confirmation that I live in a somewhat strange country, I have just discovered that there is a place called King of Prussia in Pennsylvania. What is it known for? Yes, you guessed right, it is known for having a really big mall.

How, you might ask, and why do I know about King of Prussia, also referred to as KoP? Simple. In my continuing attempt to follow the ever more bewildering locations popping up in the blog stats, I noticed that one of 18511 citizens of KoP visited my blog. Thank you. I feel honoured.

Much like with children's names, people seem to have no compunction about giving their towns bizarre names. I am not sure if I think that is endearing, or mildly obnoxious. I think I'll go back to reading about nice, sensible people like Franklin who confined their quirkiness to science, rather than bestowing it on unsuspecting towns or offspring.

Freakishly enough, my husband grew up in Pottstown, PA which is right next to KoP. I've shopped at that mall. They also have a Na Hoku there, the fiendish Hawaiian jewelry store I slaved at for 4 years.
