Have Scowl - Will Travel
NEW YORK - PARIS - LONDON - RIPTON
I did once have a set of cards that simply had my email address on top and "have root - will travel" underneath, but the address, the cards and the dot-com hubris are now long gone.

Misanthrope? I tend to think of you as more of a Man of Mystery. The scowl works either way. :)
I had to google "Ripton, MA" before I understood.
It said Dorchester before, and now Saugus. He's a travelling man, alright.
I can't think of a good fourth.
Ripton would work if there wasn't an actual town in Vermont by that name.
Aw, to hell with it. Back to Ripton we go.
It should be noted that famed stage actor George Spelvin hailed from Ripton.

That's a reach, d00d.
His career spanned nearly 80 years. You wanna make something of it?

Nah d00d, I'll take a powder on this one.
Where his next door neighbor was Alan Smithee.
Who was in a long-term relationship with George P. Burdell.
There's always NEW YORK·LONDON·PARIS·MÜNICH, but that's a different joke.
Which is why I purposefully inverted the two European names ;)
You can't stop my late-'70s muscially-obsessed mind with mere name inversion.
(nb. When the song came out and I was eight years old, I thought it was sung by Robin Williams, as the nonsense syllables sounded a lot like "nanoo-nanoo" and "shazzbot.")
...finally got that bowl of Cap'n Crunch. Was a bit late. Thank you for standing by.
New York, Paris, London, Ripton, everybody's talking 'bout, George Plimpton.
My mother was a Plimptonette in high school.
I ran into George Plimpton standing on a street corner on 6th Avenue one time.
