Zelie

Completely ridiculous name for a town, and why I love it.

It's where I live! Only the townies pronounce the name correctly, everyone else slaughters it ;)

Hmmmm...I'm not sure of the pronunciation either. Here's my best guess:
"Zee lee eh NO pull"
Close?
Hey! I tried...
;-)

It was too bad the Baron chose to build his castle from wood.

H! Close, that's how the newscasters do it. It's actually more like zill-yah-NO-pull. But like I said, only the locals really call it that.
Good to see you!
