Well, I've been delving into it a bit, thanks to somebody's suggestion on The End Board that it looks like different words strung together, and this is what I've got so far. Sorry if this has been done before.
Pietri: seems to be a pretty common surname. The only famous Pietris I could find, realistically, were Arturo Uslar Pietri, who was an intellectual in twentieth-century Venezuela; Francois Pietri, who was involved in the French Nazi puppet government in Vichy; Pedro Pietri, a Puerto Rican poet and activist. None of whom seem to have any relevance.
Sycamol: well, Googling this brings you right back to 667 where it was first mentioned, so I fail to find anything interesting here.
Laviadelrechio: now, this is a bit interesting. Let's split it up into La Via Del Rechio to begin with. Googling that, we get "did you mean rischio?" so I say, okay, we did. It's a bit of a jump, but it's not inconceivable. Even then, however, the search results are crummy, so as a last hope, I translated it in Google from Italian to English. It means, rather intriguingly, "The Way Of The Risk".
Temexity: Yeah, okay, I'm lost again. It turns up as one search result on one guy's MySpace page. Yay. Um, "mexity" gets a lot more, but nothing relevant, because again, it doesn't appear to be a word.
If you have anything to add, please do. I know the series has concluded, but it's still interesting ;D
It's a very long and nonsensical word Sunny uses about twice in THH (having just been used once in her life before that, the day she was brought home from hospital, I think) that means something like "I must admit I don't have the faintest idea of what is going on." We usually speculated on anagrams for it - old thread here. Hm, if you can find what it was translated to, then that might give us some insight.
"everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own."
"there are those who say that life is like a book, with chapters for each event in your life and a limited number of pages on which you can spend your time. but i prefer to think that a book is like a life, particularly a good one, which is well worth staying up all night to finish."
