London update


Travel in the UK must be horrible. Any word from our friends who might still be at are planning on travelling to, or might have left early for, Worldcon?

Edited to add: Heh. Worldcon is still a few weeks away. I was confusing "travelling to another country for a big con" with Westercon in Calgary last weekend. Dur. :)

Well, given that the majority of Edinburgh's population is English - yes, I suppose you're right. Funny story - the various US editions of the Lonely Planet Guide throughout the 90s used to list Edinburgh in the section for England in their guides to the UK :D

Well to you dear, yes... there, there, don't try to think about UK constitutional arrangements too hard... it's awfully complex (not unlike the spelling of Edinburgh)...

Says the man who spelled Edinburgh in line with the common American mispronunciation... so pretty... (just for the record, you should be pronouncing it 'Edin-brah')

Oh, come on, UK constitutional arrangements are simple. There isn't one.

You're both wrong. It's in Glasgow.

You Brits, so quirky. Pip pip! Go have a spot of tea or whatever it is you do over there.

We are talking about Glasgow now... I don't know enough about the state of Glaswegian education to figure spelling, but I know their speech is so thick they can't even understand each other...
