I did, and I'm working on it.  Boston and/or DC.

EDIT: Also, I'm not 100% sure who you are.  It's been awhile.

it's watson.

Figured w/ the LSN not-link and the few posts, but you never can be sure.

yeah i threw the fake LSN in as the clue.

you're still undecided?  wow.

HLS has a later schedule than almost anyone, and we have until December 15 to decide.  Where are you headed?

DC somewhere.  firm.  you looking at private sector mostly?

Yea, probably a firm.  Possibly a firm plus an academic fellowship.

I don't get these geography riddles.  You're just giving each other the answer.

Anyone?

Villa_____co?

Villa_____inc?

A villa is a town.

"A villa was originally a Roman country house built for the upper classes. According to Pliny the Elder, there were several kinds of villas: the villa urbana, which was a country seat that could easily be reached from Rome (or another city) for a night or two, and the villa rustica, the farm-house estate, permanently occupied by the servants who had charge generally of the estate, which would centre on the villa itself, perhaps only seasonally occupied. There was the domus, a city house for the middle class, and insulae, lower class apartment buildings. Petronius Satyricon describes a wide range of Roman dwellings. There were a concentration of Imperial villas near the Bay of Naples, especially on the Isle of Capri, at Monte Circeo on the coast and at Antium (Anzio). Wealthy Romans escaped the summer heat in the hills round Rome, especially around Tibur (Tivoli) and Frascati (cf Hadrian's Villa). Cicero is said to have possessed no fewer than seven villas, the oldest of which was near Arpinum, which he inherited. Pliny the Younger had three or four, of which the example near Laurentium is the best known from his descriptions."  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villa)
