thedivinegoat: Welsh Flag Sheep dreaming of the Dreamwidth Icon (Dreamsheep - Wales)
Pertinent to my post last night and tangential to [personal profile] shanaqui's post "Prepared to take the consequences (growing up Welsh in England)"

Skep - Security Aberystwyth (Spotify Link) (iTunes Link)

I assume his hands did not slip on the keyboard when typing where in the UK he is.

You could probably put it into google, and be looking right down on his head.
Yeah, right 'cos it's probably just him.

Only the welsh can pronounce welsh names.

We cannot believe how many people told us how to pronounce the unpronounceable...


I'm reminded of when Phil Plait got butthurt because people told him off for making fun of Welsh sign posts.

So I grew up thinking that this was a word everybody knew irrespective of whether they were welsh or not, but seeing as I've now had a fourth person who's just recently* moved to Wales ask me what an eisteddfod is, I'm not so sure. So any excuse for a DW poll hey?

The best thing about the Bristol Eisteddfod was that three years running I got to hit Sarah Jones with a foam-stuffed sock truncheon. (We were friends in that 'we'd hate each other but there's no one else to be friends with' way.)

Please feel free to link to your friends as I'd love to get as many people answering as possible.

Yno, cynhaliwyd ymryson, a gwahoddwyd beirdd a cherddorion o bob cwr o'r wlad i gystadlu yn erbyn ei gilydd.

* recently, as in within the last couple of years. ie more recently than me.
