These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

Helen says:

Aye, plenty of beet around Narj.

Attracts vicious coypus though.

Euphro says:

Coypus are large South American rodents (dog-sized water rats) that were farmed for fur in Norfolk in the 1930's. Some escaped and found a comfortable home in a very pretty series of waterways near Norwich called the Norfolk Broads. They bred prolifically, but didn't spread very much. In the 1990's an eradication programme was started and a couple of years ago finally removed the last one :)

Ok but can someone please explain Helen's entire first sentence?

Euphro says:

Norwich is at the centre of a big agricultural area. Helen may be referring to sugar beet (East Anglia produces a lot of the UK's sugar) which Coypu's would like to eat. "Narj" is a phonetic representation of the way that locals would have pronounced "Norwich" a generation or two ago, but they almost certainly all speak a variant of "estuary" now, possibly with a mild Norfolk burr.

*still confused* Okay... But I still dont know what this has to do with my UPS forms.

*wanders off with confused expression*

Euphro says:

I think that in an ironic way, all the sugar really does belong to Norwich, even before you sent your package. That might be what Helen was referring to (sugar beet, sugar factories etc.) :)
