We watched a Travel Man yesterday, with Richard Ayoade. I love them
and him :). And it was in Milan and he mentioned TA :). But right now
I have forgotten the context. I just remember thinking I must tell
umra....

There must be an entry in 'The Meaning of Liff' for that.

My two favourites are:

Woking - the feeling of going into the kitchen and wondering what it was
you went in there for, and,

Kettering - the marks left on the back of your legs when you've been
sitting on wicker-work furniture.

"The meaning of Liff" is a little book - I think written by people later
associated with Hitchhiker's? - which gives humorous meanings to various
British placenames (Liff is a place).

I've often felt that the part of Oxford where my brother lives - Iffley
- ought to have a meaning: "I feel a bit iffley". I'd be very surprised
if it _doesn't_ have an entry in the book, but I don't have a copy.

I do Jpeg, ‘The Deeper Meaning of Liff’ by Douglas Adams and John Lloyd.

Goes from Ibstock to the next place which is Imber, so frayed knot.

You just need to read 'The Meaning of Liff' - or a wikipedia entry about
it.
