  • Hee-hee! More names for my armchair traveler list.

  • Then again, I really shouldn't talk, coming from a state with town names like Blue Ball, Intercourse, and Climax....

  • Yep. Kad's right. And it isn't the strangest name in New Jersey, either!

    Cheesequake. It fears you.

  • Very seriously. This is apparently a town, a state park, and a rest stop on the garden state parkway. Despite desperate attempts last weekend, I couldn't find my way from the highway to the state park and wound up in horrendous traffic. The silver lining is that it prompted me to actually buy a map.

    According to Wikipedia, this word comes from a Lenape Native American word for 'upland' or 'upland village.' But I'd rather picture Cheesquake State Park as a place where they pass out cheesecake at the entrance. Or where there is cottage cheese rustling nervously in the breeze.
