Meli,

If you plan on riding atop with silks billowing... then you already know which choice is the correct one. <G>

The confusion that could result from misunderstood radio communications boggles the mind and rivals the famous "who's on first" routine.

I see two ways to go with this.

1. Adrift

2. Station

I got "Priscilla," and I am not even Australian, but I saw the movie.

"Come on girls, let's shop!"

That has to be the greatest and most aptly named product ever. Someone should have got an award for that.

How about "Yahoo"?

Yes, I'm serious.

There was an American remake of 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert'. Not bad, but I've never seen the orginal.

Since you're in Oz, 'Sheila' might be an appropriate name.

Given the other thread there is only one name it could be. Dead Zone.
