nuh uhh, one Eskimo tribe is Inuit so calling them Inuit is like saying they're all from the same tribe, they are called Eskimos
Title: Going to be Away?
Post by: Jubal on July 30, 2008, 09:51:30 PM
We were taught that Eskimo was a derogatory term made up by the French, and that Inuit was the only correct term for them...

Title: Going to be Away?
Post by: stormcloud on July 31, 2008, 12:10:02 PM
yeah do have a good trip

but have you never watched QI?

But the vast majority of Canadian "Eskimos" actually are Inuit (that word is a plural; the singular is Inuk); the small proportion who identify as Inuvialuit see themselves as a subset of the Inuit, so don't mind being referred to as Inuit.

In Alaska they don't mind the E-word. Most Alaskan Eskimos are Yup'ik (of whom the Alutiiq are a subset; Alutiiq was the language Stephen spoke on the show although it was misidentified as Aleutian). There are some Inuit, and also the Unangan or Aleuts. That last group are strictly speaking not Eskimos - they prefer the term "the Eskimo/Aleut people".

The indigenous people of Greenland are Inuit, although they prefer the term Kalaallit. They don't object too much to "Greenlanders", but like their Canadian cousins they don't like the E-word.

So while they are all Eskimos, they dont like being called it. They are defiantly not all Inuit

Ladyhawk is going camping with her family for a week and will therefore not be on until next Saturday I think.

Anyway, carry on,

I hate to do it to you guys but off I go to Melbourne to go pick up me writing award.

I'll be back on Tuesday, provided something doesn;t go horribly wrong.

While I'm down there I'll try to get on here but I'm not likely to get much of a chance. On the other hand I am being interviewed so I'm definitely going to hammer home that people whould come on here.

Cheers guys, I'll hopefully get a chance to come on again tomorrow morning but in case I don't:

FAREWELL EXILIAN! I'LL SEE THEE UPON MY TRIUMPHANT RETURN!

As this is major news, I thought that it deserved the grand entrance. (cough)
Yes, that's right, you lucky, lucky people. I have graced your presence once again. Lucky sods.

Some of you may be asking why? Why now?
Well, the simple answer to that is I'm slightly bored.
And I (strangely) missed this place and its inactive ways a tiny, little bit.

Man, if there was ever anything I'd like to do as a summer job, is to work at a music shop... although I might get fired for laughing at poor purchase choices and trying to stuff in good music CD's into their shopping bags.

Oh, and sorry for the completely inadequate and unrelated stereotype I'll just say, but every time I hear someone from the UK talking about folk music, the first thing that comes to might are red-headed, hairy Scottish men playing on bagpipes (although I must say I like the bagpipe sounds)

...and it turns out their name is Lucy (of a rather excellent band called Pilgrim's Way who you really ought to Google).

Going away 15 minutes ago and will be back Sunday evening.

Gone on Tuesday 24th, returning Thursday 3rd. Field trips are exciting.

About to take the plunge. Nobody is allowed to ask me to do anything between now and next Wednesday evening short of the site going down, and I will probably be around just about not at all.

Good luck, back soon!

It seems a bit strange that to say that I will be away for a while so soon after joining; nevertheless, that's what's happening. I will be on holiday from Saturday 9th to Monday 18th inclusive, meandering around Germany and neighbouring countries by train. For some engineering quirkiness, there is a good chance that this will involve at least one, possibly two, train ferry crossings.

Also, I still need to do quite a lot of organising (route planning and hotel booking, mainly), so I probably won't be terribly active here for the next few days either.

Its fleeing already, our ambiguity has struck terror even faster than direct hostilities. It can't live with the suspense, the not knowing when we might turn on it. Yes we are a genius indeed, a most cunning adversary we are.

Erm I mean enjoy your travels. We all look forward to your return.

Greetings from Germany! All is going well so far, except that the wifi at last night's hotel decided to block Exilian (I got a long message in German, ending in "games"!). I contemplated ravaging the hotel with Fire (and, possibly, The Sword*), but eventually decided against, as it's very convenient and does a good breakfast.

* See "1066 And All That". Also, the hotel isn't in Thanet.

Welcome back :)
Many thanks.

How was the land of Germans?
It was good. It contained nice scenery, interesting towns, trains, beer, schnitzel, wurst, sauerkraut, and pastries, all of which I enjoyed. It also contained rain, which I did not enjoy.

I also visited the lands of the Danes, the Swedes and the Czechs. Much the same comments apply to these too. My train from Sweden to Germany crossed the Baltic Sea on a ferry - one of only three places in Europe where this happens now.

Oh, and if you could just give me some of your vacation time...
It'sss mine, my preciousss, all mine.  :gollum:

Have a safe journey, and a wonderful time while you're over here. For London, the forecast temperatures look to be between 50F and 63F, with brisk winds, so maybe 5F windchill. Nothing compared to an Ohio winter, of course! But you will need the waterproofs if you're going outside at all - there's intermittent rain all weekend :(

I might not be around much this weekend: I have finally found some tuits and decided to go and see stuff. The plan of campaign is this:
- tomorrow: Stonehenge, Old Sarum, and other stuff in Salisbury as time permits
- Sunday: Brighton - Volk's Electric Railway, maybe Brighton Pavilion or anything else that takes my fancy

On the other hand, this involves a lot of travelling, so I will be sitting on trains with a smartphone for quite a few hours. If there's Wifi or mobile connectivity, I might be posting a lot...

Tuits?
Title: Re: Going to be Away?
Post by: Glaurung on July 31, 2015, 09:35:07 PM
Tuits?
Ah, sorry, this is a Britishism (if you can have Americanisms, I can have Britishisms). It started from "I'll do it when I get around to it", which must at some point have been converted to "I'll do it when I get a round tuit". I remember seeing a small ceramic plate, labelled as a "round tuit", in a shop window about 30 years ago. So now "tuits" are the thing that one must have in order to get something done. I don't know whether it's only the round ones that are still effective, or whether square or triangular ones now work as well.

Advance warning: I may not be around much for the next month or so. After not going anywhere for the first half of the year, I'm about to have three foreign trips in very quick succession:
- Sun 23 to Sat 29 August: a railway meander from Santiago de Compostela to Strasbourg, via Madrid, Barcelona, southern France and hopefully a bit of Italy
- Thu 3 - Mon 7 September: Sardinia, trying to see the bits that were omitted from the tour I went on last October
- Thu 17 - Wed 23 September: another meander, through the Balkans this time, from Kosovo via Macedonia and Thessaloniki to Athens (or that's the intention)
As you might guess, much of my free time when I'm not on holiday will be taken up organising bits of holiday - booking planes, trains and hotels.

Yes, the film title was going through my head as I wrote the words. I'm hoping that automobiles will not need to feature in any part of these trips: I don't drive, taxis are expensive, and any other unexpected interaction with a car is likely to be painful.

No, it's not bad. Belgian beer is a somewhat obscure field of knowledge (albeit one I've rather enjoyed exploring over the last 20 years) - I wouldn't expect you to know it, any more than I'm familiar with most late Byzantine history.

I should probably post an update here.

First, apologies that I haven't been posting much for several weeks - volunteer activities for the LibDems have eaten most of my free time. It's all too easy to say Yes to another batch of leaflet deliveries...

Second, I am going to be away for quite a lot of the next two weeks:
- Fri 29 April - Tue 3 May: travelling in Germany
- Wed 4 & Thu 5 May: back in the UK, but largely doing LibDem stuff for the local elections on the Thursday
- Fri 6 - Tue 10 May: travelling in Spain

I might not be terribly active even after I get back: once the local election campaign is over, the local LibDems will be working hard as part of the "Remain" campaign for the UK's EU referendum.

Not now, and not for a long time. However, there seems to have been a brief period when there was a "Middle Anglia"; and I think that the area that might logically have been "West Anglia" actually turned into the Anglo-Saxon kingdom called Mercia. But I'm not sure - Dark Ages Anglo-Saxon history is complicated...

Apologies: I haven't been around much for a while, and I'm likely to be around even less for the next week or ten days. Once again I am busy walking around Cambridge, pushing leaflets through letterboxes for the Liberal Democrats. This time, of course, it's part of the Remain campaign for the UK's EU referendum.

The referendum is indeed horrible, in a large number of ways, and I'd much rather be spending my time on something better. But as it is happening, and I believe very strongly that it's important for the UK to stay in the EU, I'm doing what I can to achieve that result.

As for me, I am generally likely to be around about as much as I have been since February, i.e. somewhat less than I'd like to be. I am well aware of my responsibilities here as Sakellarios, and, should you choose to ratify my election, as Basileus, and I am certainly not running away, but real-world political activity looks very likely to be a substantial part of my leisure time from now on.

Crete is weird and amazing!

Their bbqs are portugaling fantastic, bbq octopus is one of the best things I've ever had. Thier beers are armadillo though. Fix and Alfa both terrible, best they serve regularly is heinekan... And that's an average beer at the very best.

Stray cats and dogs are everywhere.I thought it'd be bad but half the time its adorable.

They can't drive for armadillo. Literally yhr worst driving I've ever witnessed. Also there are no traffic laws apparently or c op s.

Weather has been a solid 9000 degrees. Great if you're into thy.

Maps rarely correspond with where the roads are. Mountains are beautiful, just fantastic, awe inspiring mofos. Every 20 metres os a taverna with the most friendly and wrlcomig hosts. The people here are so accompfating to tourists. The locals are very good at speaking English. Super friendly, super forgiving. Leading Greek is portugaling jhard, locals love it if you try even though their English is near perfect and they don't take the piss unlike Spain or France (personal experience only tbf).

You need a car to get around. The mountain passes are phenomenal, driving through them you het a real feel for the scale and the geography of Crete. Busses only gp from town to town which is bori in g. The big toens are like any in east Europe but with more graffiti. Tons of graffiti here. Also toilet paper goes in the bin... Not disastrous but weird and uncomfortable.


Ig someone could correct this that'd be amazing. My typing is so slow on the phone.

Boars or pigs, apparently: that's what the Celtic 'ork' or 'arc' element means. The Vikings heard the name and decided it referred to seals instead (their word 'orkn') and added 'eyjar' (islands) for good measure. Centuries of English usage have worn off the final syllable.
Title: Re: Going to be Away?
Post by: Pentagathus on June 02, 2017, 11:27:04 AM
There weren't many pigs or boars that I saw, lots of sheep though. We were up for the folk festival, was some good folking. The last night of it was particularly glorious, the whole town of stromness seemed to be absolutely on it. Did some hikes in the land of orcs as well, Hoy was pretty beautiful and the weather was perfect.
North coast and west coast were also amazing, some hard hikes with nothing going to plan made for quite the adventure.

Forthcoming awayness: today to Monday 27th inclusive. In fact I'm already 'away', as I'm typing this at Gatwick Airport. It's going to be a ramble through the erstwhile Holy Roman Empire by train: Vienna tonight, then Innsbruck, Verona, Switzerland, Frankfurt am Main, and finally Antwerp.

Nah, have fun, G. Come by the other side sometime.

Indeed, much Internet :)

I too am doing things political for the next four days, by no coincidence at all at the same event as Jubal.

Post by: comrade_general on September 14, 2018, 08:53:00 PM
I'm doing zero politics things the next 4 days and there should be internet so I'll be somewhat around if anyone cares. I will also be drunk. :)
Title: Re: Going to be Away?

Oddly enough, the political event seems to involve a lot of sitting in pubs and drinking beer :)

Nice! I've visited Paphos when I was younger and remember it being an interesting place.

I'll be based not far from there in Limassol . There will be a fair bit of car based roamage too :)

I'm just stepping into my plane to go back to Vienna - hopefully it'll be an OK flight, it's a bit delayed so I'm nervous about catching my train at the other end...
Title: Re: Going to be Away?

If you don't catch it it shouldn't be hard to find - they always leave tracks.

And more awayness for me: ten days travelling around Europe (by train, inevitably!). Tomorrow I fly out to Sofia, in Bulgaria (a new country for me), and on Sunday embark on a circular tour of the southern Balkans by special train, via southern Serbia, Macedonia, northern Greece (including Thessaloniki), and back through southern Bulgaria to Sofia. This is spread over a week. Then it's on to Germany, for a day or so, around Hannover, and finally back home on Monday 8 October.

Access to Exilian is likely to be intermittent, especially in Serbia and Macedonia where I may not have mobile data roaming. However, based on previous experience, I expect that there will be internet.

Title: Re: Going to be Away?
Post by: Glaurung on September 29, 2018, 01:31:47 PM
Indeed, especially if CG has anything to do with it.

In other news, I have now reached Sofia. There is internet :) There are also mountains, or at least very large hills, close to the city, and lots of buildings from perhaps the mid-nineteenth century onwards. I suspect there is an older city centre somewhere nearby.

As an added linguistic excitement, I don't speak any Bulgarian (though it's similar to other Slavic languages) and it's all written in Cyrillic, which I can transliterate with some effort.

Also, I've realised, I've increased my "Womble world tour" score by one, i.e. I've visited another place after which a Womble is named - Bulgaria in this case. Previous such locations have included Wellington and Adelaide. Unfortunately, there are still a lot to do: Tobermory, Orinoco, Bungo and Tomsk as obvious ones.

Post by: Glaurung on September 30, 2018, 08:01:57 AM
Further news from Sofia: the hotel I'm staying in is hosting a dental conference, and the space outside the breakfast room is the commercial exhibition. Leaving breakfast to be faced with a stall covered in dentist's tools was not an experience I had on my list for today...

Hm, Orinoco may be a challenge! Bungo at least you have options for - Indonesia, Japan, Angola, and curiously a suburb of Edinburgh. I wonder which one the name was done for...! Apparently there's a Tobermory on either side of the Atlantic too so there's options there.

And so to Serbia, via some rather scenic country. There is internet here too :) Alas, data roaming is horribly expensive, so I'm using hotel WiFi.

Have fun! I think there's cider in Ireland, so you might not be forced to sample 'the black stuff'. It looks as if you might be particularly lucky and get a whole day of dry, bright weather :)

No-one knows what the craic is. No-one can know what the craic is - no merely human mind can encompass its sublime mysteries. But it's always good, apparently.

Glaurung meanwhile passed through Vienna again today and is now, I believe, safely back in the UK :) He may even have flown to one of the London airports, which I'm sure was a great choice.

Can confirm I am back in the UK, having flown to a London airport. This was indeed a great choice, since it's the airport nearest to home.
Title: Re: Going to be Away?
Post by: Jubal on August 05, 2019, 01:08:58 PM
Yes. You can fly from Vienna to the UK without going via London, but the Manchester to Cambridge journey would be rather annoyingly long once you got there (plus I suspect the flight is more expensive to start with).

Also no train journey could be annoyingly long for G methinks.

Also no train journey could be annoyingly long for G methinks.
So far my limit seems to be about 30 hours on a single train: Cairns to Brisbane, in Australia, or Chicago to western Arizona. I'm about willing to tolerate one night on a train, but two in succession feels like too much. A week on a single train (e.g. the Trans-Siberian railway) is almost certainly too much - I'd want to have breaks along the way.
