Today the newspaper DV published a series of “secret documents” it claims to have obtained from a source within the Progressive Party [Framsóknarflokkur], including this one — an Excel document with a list of bloggers defined as “enemies of the party”.
I was exceedingly disappointed to find that the Weather Report is not on that list. WHERE did I go wrong? I mean, just five posts ago I wrote something that totally should have qualified me for that list. It ain’t fair!! Note to self: work harder at bashing the Progressive Party in future.
That said, there is still a glimmer of hope of becoming a blog of notoriety. With any luck someone within the Independence Party will soon be persuaded to leak a “top secret” list of enemy bloggers. I should definitely be in the top ten.
WE’RE HOPING FOR A WERY WERY COLD NIGHT
Because tomorrow [well, actually today, since it IS past midnight] is the official First Day of Summer [a public holiday], and the belief is that if winter and summer “freeze together” [i.e. if there is frost in the night] then summer will be very good. Kinda like our version of Groundhog Day. And that’s what we’re all hoping for, of course, because since none of us can afford to take trips abroad this year, summer will have to come to us. Currently a calm and gentle 4°C [39F], with sunrise at 5.31 and sunset at 9.23.
UPDATE: Sorry, everyone, that the link didn’t work the first time. My fault entirely. That’s what I get for blogging all bleary-eyed before going to bed [and not checking that the links work!].
