404 Mermaids

I'm staying in Room 404. Maybe this means that if you looked for me, you wouldn't find me.

Today I'm thinking of buying some mermaid bait or repellent.

I'm in San Francisco and am thinking of going to 826 Valencia, which sells mermaid bait:

I've been there, and it's awesome. There are a couple of similarly awesome shops on the same block.

It was great! I will probably have to go back before I leave to stock up on McSweeneys, and oh, more pirate supplies.

I didn't see any lard! (Which I am grateful for.)

You couldn't find your room, and now you have to become a mermaid and sleep in the bay?

I found the room, but maybe no-one else will be able to?

I am not sure whether I want to attract or repel mermaids. Well, I am going to go to the Pirate Supply Shop and see if they have any in stock. Although the stuff that helps you escape from the belly of a whale is tempting too.

The Pirate Supply Shop sounds awesome. If you're not bored with it, do take me there when I visit next week. I feel the need to be protected from mermaids and giant squids. :)

I think there was an episode of Round the Twist where that happened...

Bother, I'm two countries too late.

Whenever I see the "page not found" message my brain automatically generates the visual pun of a knight wandering around aimlessly, unable to locate his assistant.

I'd go with repellent. I can't think of any story I've seen where there's actually a benefit to finding them...

You have incorrectly guessed the purpose of your room:

You will need to bolt your door, because anyone else who is lost will automatically be redirected to your room. It might be best if you put a sign up, saying that they are definitely lost, and they should maybe try the index at reception.

Ooh, good point. I should try that. :)

sorry - replied in the wrong place. :os

They were out of stock! Eeek! The mermaids might start appearing!

At least you didn't get a 417: Expectation Failed!

(Having Googled a list of HTTP response codes, quite a lot of them are rather surreal in the context of hotel rooms...)

Heh, good point. There should be a hotel that is just made up of rooms with HTTP response codes and nothing else.

I once stayed in a hotel and got given room 404, I said to the receptionist "oh no, I'll never find that" and she looked at me like I was simple.

hum maybe!!
if you find yourself as to where you are that is important!
