    That's nice. Neither am I.

    Glad you mentioned it. Now I won't be jumping to any conclusions.

    You'll always be a Mountain Man to me. Incidentally, I was born of the sea foam. :wink:

    This is a trick, no? You did not say: "I'm not British or a kiwi," nor "I'm not from Britain or New Zealand." It could be you are not British because you are a nationalised New Zealander, but you are not "from" New Zealand because you were born in Britain.

    Or it could be you're from somewhere else.

    zooby. I don't know what you are yet - I need a map. Croatia is somewhere in the middle, right? :redface:

    OK, OK. I was neither born in the UK nor in New Zealand. I am not now, nor have I ever been, a citizen of the UK or New Zealand. I do not now, nor have I ever, lived in the UK or New Zealand.

    I have also never tried to smuggle a coconut out of Haiti.

    Okay, okay, you are a zoobie - descendants of the Mountain Men and mountain goats.

    Berislav is a gondolier who got lost and rowed across the sea.

    Goats? Are you high? I'm prolly some kind of post- simian, prehomonid kinda thing.

    I must be a strong gondolier then. :approve:

    I've never seen goats while visiting the 'ol man of the mountains, but I have seen lots of chipmunks there. So zooby is a chipmunk/mountain man hybrid? Which would make him firm, yet oddly fuzzy.

    What are these "Mountain Men" you guys are talking about? (I know what goats and chipmunks are.)

    Incidently, I'm British, but also not from New Zealand

    Is anyone, really, from New Zealand?

    I'm not sure... Most people around here seem to be British. Funny, that.

    Here where? PF, or there, England?
