Off the Map

To My Ever Loyal Subjects
From Your Humble Servant, Her Majesty of Maps

It is with a sad heart and a deep sense of sorrow that I regretfully inform you that after much thought and deliberation, back and forth, give and take, sturm und drang (yeah, I looked it up!), I have made the painful yet inevitable decision:


Ye royal boyfriend has made Her Majesty an offer which ye (or, she) could not refuse. And believe it or not, and believe me when I say I NEVER thought this would happen, I am moving to, of all places:


Seriously. Ohio.

So suddenly, I need to pack (boxes or garbage bags? boxes or garbage bags?), help ye royal bf get rid of all (!!!) the “stuff” I do not wish to surround myself with and which does not meet with my royal sensibilities, and prepare myself to live in… Ohio.


So much to do, so little time. As a result, I have had to make some sacrifices. And you, my loyal subjects, are my sacrifice. This blog has been a blast. I have loved pretending that the scores or hundreds of you (some days are better than others) who wander to this page every day have said to yourself “very, very cool!” when looking at some neat or weird map. But alas… Googling takes time, and I am just plum out of it.

Mucho gracias for your readership and your interest, for your comments and your ideas. I loved following your leads and your links.

And I wish you the best in all your future endeavors. Map well.

Arms Race

Not to pat myself on the back or anything… but Her Majesty, your royal servant of the map, is truly on the cutting edge. Remember my stalking obsession with mapping celebrities? And remember my posts about map tattoos? Well, I’ve found the jackpot!

Who knew… that one of Angelina Jolie’s tattoos is the map coordinates of the birthplaces of her children?
