Pete's Log: Rijks. Pete Rijks.Entry #1664, Fri, October 09, 2009, 10:34 CEST (Random Crap)
(posted when I was 31 years old.)
When giving their last names, some of my German colleagues have little phrases they use to make it clear, for example "Löwe, wie das Tier" ("Löwe, like the animal" -- Löwe being the German word for Lion).
I've been thinking I should start saying "Rijks, wie das Museum in Amsterdam" -- "Rijks, like the museum in Amsterdam".
(Although perhaps my parents would prefer "Rijks, like the gallery in Colorado")

I think I'm with your assumption of what your parents would prefer on this one. It is just the appropriate amount of absurd.

Or how about Rijks like my uncle's museum in Amsterdam?
