My card.



D. Spatchel

Freelance Misanthrope
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. :)

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.

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.")
