Reykjavík is filled with Scots wearing kilts at the moment. They’re over here to support their national football team, which is playing Niceland as we speak. As a matter of fact I should probably turn on the telly and see what the score is … scuse me …
0:1 for Scotland, 27 minutes into the game. Boo.
EPI’s down there, probably shouting himself hoarse and freezing his butt. Although not as much as the Scots, who proved definitively on Kastljós last night that they were not wearing anything underneath those kilts, bless. You gotta love the Scots … don’t they just have the most adorable accent ever? Not to sound patronizing or anything … it’s true. Plus they really know how to have a great time. In fact the sports announcers are talking about that at this very minute … what a great crowd they are, “… they come to the field to have a good time and to entertain others.” They just sing their songs and walk around town wearing skirts and spreading love and cheer. We’ll take more like them, please.
Meanwhile, aren’t you glad the Earth wasn’t swallowed up by a black hole today? I have to admit that I felt a bit queasy yesterday when they started talking about that Big Bang experiment down in Switzerland. It was scary enough to make me heed the advice in Fréttablaðið yesterday on some things NOT to do, just in case the world ended:
- negotiate with tax authorities
- start reading War and Peace
- watch Rob Schneider movies
- start the cucumber diet
- listen to The Collected Works of Yoko Ono
- buy furniture that needs assembling
- go to a fortune teller
… Of course I am now mega-relieved and shall be embarking on the Collected Works shortly.
MEANWHILE IT IS COOL OUT THERE
And the man who is supposed to fix our roof and has to do so before the temps drop below 6°C is resolutely ignoring my calls. Can’t imagine why. Guess he just doesn’t know what a barrel of laughs we are and what a blast he’d have IF HE ONLY GOT HIS LAZY ASS DOWN HERE. What is it with tradespeople the world over? Are they missing the gene that makes people want to keep their promises? I ask you. We have 14°C supposedly [I don’t believe it though, it sure doesn’t feel like it] or 55F and this morning the sun came up at 6:37 am and will go down at 8:10 pm.
