Hi. I'm sorry but I'm unable to come to the blog right now. I took a vacation. Just to make things interesting, I'll throw out a coulple of clues as to where I am. If you come up with the answer, I'll let you in on that mix I offered up a few weeks ago. Here you go:

- far-flung financial institutions
- decoy
- toyota

There you have it. I'll be off doing whatever it is I'm expected to do wherever I am. And I'll get back to you on the winner.

Good luck.


P.S. Rest in peace Ronnie James Dio. Raise the devil horns to half-mast.

Japan? Have fun!

I'm thinking that you are off looking for a new car! If so, good luck!

Posted by: Maribeth at May 17, 2010 8:08 AM

I was thinking Japan as well.

Oh no, Dio died? Queuing up "Holy Diver" in his honor.

The outerbanks. But I cheated.

You are in the Outer Banks. Should I be more specific? Are you in Duck? Or in Corolla? Hope it's not raining there like it is here in DC.

The people above me seem to think you're in the Outerbanks. I think you're at home having a staycation looking at minivans on your laptop.

Have a great time wherever you are.

What?? They don't have haikus where you are? I need my Monday haiku fix dammit.

Let's play a new game.
Where is Waldo?...I mean Chris.
Your hints confuse me.

Fire Island. Or maybe Japan. Or Switzerland.

Nope. I'm sticking with Fire Island.

Outer Banks, Duck, Corolla!!

Posted by: Sue R at May 17, 2010 11:39 AM

I hope its fun where-ever you are!!!

My guess: Outer Banks of NC...most specifically DUCK?

Posted by: Amy at May 17, 2010 12:01 PM

Well, I was going to use just the first clue and go with the Caymans, but the Outer Banks answers seem to make more sense. Enjoy!

Posted by: Brooke at May 17, 2010 12:09 PM

Who knows?

I just hope it is fun and not work related.

I was thinking NYC.....maybe because of the stock exchange being there.

Posted by: debb at May 17, 2010 12:20 PM

Outer Banks, Duck, North Corolla, I mean, Carolina

Posted by: zanie at May 17, 2010 12:48 PM

I'm going with Duck, NC too! Have fun! I love it there!

Posted by: Rose @Dozenroses13 at May 17, 2010 1:15 PM

Japan ? France ? Caiman Islands ?
Where ? Why ? What for ? Until when ? With who ?
Mystère et boule de gomme...

Posted by: viviane at May 17, 2010 2:06 PM

Somewhere off Currituck Sound....around Corolla or Duck, NC. Sounds nice - enjoy!!

Posted by: Jen at May 17, 2010 3:06 PM

San Francisco!

Posted by: Wendy at May 17, 2010 5:10 PM

I have to go with Outer Banks myself. And if you're there, I'm jealous.

However, you said decoy. And Toyota. And Toyota has many plants in the United States. So I don't know.

Just send me the damn mix, I'm tired and I am ass-deep in schoolwork for my masters!

Posted by: Stephanie at May 17, 2010 9:31 PM

If you're in Ottawa (where we have banking institutions, Toyota dealerships and where the movie "Decoys" was filmed) and you don't tell me I'll have a sad.

Enjoy your vacation!

This guy has to go with North Carolina as well. Have a great & safe vacation. You've earned it.


Posted by: JJ at May 18, 2010 11:49 AM

Hope your having a great beach? vacation!! Wherever you are hope it is fun and relaxing.

My husband got all mad at me yesterday because I told him that "some guy named Dio died... wasn't he in a band?" ... apparently he feels that I need to get out more.

I was going to guess japan as far as your trip - but I think that If I were going to japan, I wouldn't be able to keep it quiet till the day I left. SO I'm thinking it something not quite as exciting as an overseas trip. But then again, I could be wrong.
