    Yes, odd title, but here's the deal.

    Most of you know that in January, I'll be leaving this realm for a year and a half in parts unknown.

    The parts unknown is what this thread is about.

    Basically, my floormates here at BYU have started a pool that has spread to family, friends, and a few boarders. You guess where I'll be going and, in two weeks, when I find out, if you're right, I either send you a considerable amount of candy or the money to get some.

    So here are the guesses so far. Multiple people are allowed to guess one place

    Spencer--Phoenix
    Jen--Florida
    Sarah--France
    Meisha--Texas
    Chris--Oklahoma
    Jedi-Jae--"Some third-world sinkhole where we'll never hear from you again."
    Julie-Ann and Richard--Taiwan
    Hannah--Hawaii
    Amidala_Skywalker--New Zealand
    Mackenzie, DeAnn, and PadawanLunetta--Salt Lake City, Utah
    Denise--Brazil
    Mary--Argentina
    Chesley--North Dakota
    Emily and Melanie--Germany
    Rosemary--Korea
    Reed--Switzerland
    MzAmythestCrow--Colorado
    Clarus, Tanner, and Claire--Spain
    DarthLothi--Rwanda
    John--Australia
    Megan--Colombia
    Awel--Singapore
    Meghan--Illinois
    Don--Mongolia
    Rob--Leipzig, Germany
    Nedra--Paraguay
    Diana--Lima, Peru
    Karen--Estonia
    MaryAnn--Prague, Czech Republic
    Ron--Los Angeles
    Leo--Roma, Italy
    Rachael and Beth--New York City
    Ashley--Paris, France
    Mar17swgirl--Ukraine

    So, add on and we'll see what happens.

    I'll vote (I don't know if it is taken):

    Thiland or is it spelled Thialand?


    It's prolly somewhere else like Mali or Togo in Africa.

    ::AQ thinks really hard, causing smoke to come out of her ears::

    I'll say England.

    ::AQ slips out, but mutters one last comment::

    Or perhaps some little hole in the world where she can plan out new ways to torture and kill the characters! :D

    Will you have internet access, and what is the purpose of this journey??

    Okay, to explain, I have decided to do a year and a half of missionary work for my church. I will not be allowed internet access and (*gasp*) I cannot see Episode II when it comes out. But, anyway, in approximately two weeks, I will be notified of where I'm going and will leave sometime in January. Whoever guesses correctly where I'm going to go gets candy.

    What kind of church do you go to? That could definetly effect your destination.

    Hey, who voted for Prague, Czech Republic! That's where I am right now!! :D OK, Ish, make sure you'll get to Prague, we could meet some time... ;)

    No, I still vote for Ukraine (or some other poor former-Soviet mid-Asian country).

    (Let's just hope it's not Afghanistan... :eek: )

    ...a galaxy far far away?

    Sorry, couldn't resist!

    A friend of my sister's did missionary work in the Northwest--but I'm getting a sense that you are needed in the Northeast--is a region a good enough guess? I mean if someone can name an entire country as their guess, then can I name a region?

    I'm thinking New York or Mass. or New Hampshire, or Virginia, or Connecticut, somewhere like that.

    Seriously DI, no matter where you go, may God bless you and keep you safe.

    Mar, my favorite cousin, MaryAnn (wife of the guy who guessed Leipzig)guessed Prague. She spent two years there as a student and loves it.

    Silent_Jedi and Fluke_Groundwalker, you have to narrow it down to one. And S_J, they won't be sending me to Mass. since I'm from Boston and they only send you to your homestate usually if it's an extenuating circumstance. (Such as my friend Nick who is a paraplegic, but otherwise fully qualified for missionary work; he served in Salt Lake City) But, anyway, keep that in mind and repost your guess.

    Okay, I forgot to put up this caveat up: you can't do it by area, only specific places. I had a lot of people guessing "South America" or "Europe" and while that's fine in general, it won't work for the competitive nature of this pool. So, if you could guess somewhere in Canada, that would be helpful. And Jedi-Jae has to specify which third-world sinkhole.

    My friend Emily just got called to Bulgaria! She got the letter last night!
