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. :)

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')

Meh - you didn't know how to spell or say it... and you call yourself a Scot...

How do you know I don't know how to say it? :P

your attempted spelling - it's an exact match for how every American I've ever met mispronounces it... bless, it's not your fault - Scottish spellings are odd at the best of times :)

PS: That's not a nitpick - I had an 'aclimatisation period' where Scots would just laugh at me whenever I tried to pronounce place names. I was watching ABC's coverage of G8 last night, and I couldn't stop laughing at the way they pronounced Gleneagles (Glen Eagles - bless).

Personally, I prefer the archaic version, Dunedin...

Yes, I like that too - of course, they have one of those in New Zealand...
