"Really? How intriguing," he said peregrinatorially.

And now you've been adverbed! :-o

And 'adverb' has been verbed :-o

Realises the limitations of my IRL name. Some IRL names would work.... Although probably not worth adopting the name Roger just for this benefit.

Columba - nice to have you back! Yes - one who travels with a vague intent seemed apt somehow. What occurred to me after McG's post was that some names can be both proper nouns and verbs. But I could only think of a few real life ones: Frank, Dawn, Mark, Nick.... Gogol was so nearly centuries ahead of his time :)
