in reply to The shortest distance between my keyboard and the Monastery is:
I am reminded of the Dutch phrase "Om de hoek", which means around the corner, but sometimes gets miss-translated as "On the corner".
The phrase also has some of the same connotations of the English phrase "Round the bend".
Update: Thanks aukjan for pointing out my typo.

My friends all rate Windows, I must disagree.

"Om de hoek" ... 'der' is tooooo German ;-)
,,Um die Ecke'' in German.
,,jemanden um die Ecke bringen'' - literally: to escort somebody round the corner - means to kill that somebody though.
