Neither should you.

Actually, she's lucky enough to have two: she's Sami, that means she's in the samemanntall and a member of whatever country she happens to be born in. That's in the Herderesque idea of nation, though.

Lola: I live in Norway and my girlfriend is part Sami (which manifests, among other things, in an extra helping of cheekbones and a strange but mild recurring desire to herd reindeer), so it's not obscure here.

nice try, Martin. If this were your only comment on detritus in which you reveal that you know a lot of obscure things, you just may have gotten away with that.

;)

(and for what it's worth: it's a trait that we value highly around here.)

yes yes highly valued!
