The Egg Hunt Hiding Place Generator

Just in time for Easter, I've got a handy little applescript for helping you find places to hide all those eggs. Just start up the app and it will pick a general region, specific location, and landmark before using these to piece together a hiding place. Click OK and it will serve up one of three hundred other hiding places. I have made the source available, so feel free to add your own regions, locations, and landmarks to the pool. Now, get out there and hide those eggs!

I could code this in C++ or Delphi or something, but I really don't have time at the moment...

If you do, make sure to post it back up here in the comments, and send me an email so I can post it up on the main page.
