Our landlord (whom you've met!) has gone several times and I am always so envious to hear her stories and see her pictures b/c it looks like an amazing place.

i played in a basketball tournament in iceland a while ago

if you decide to hoop it up, be prepared to be fouled a great deal

one of the worst things you could do to my older sister would be invite her to iceland in a mumbly voice and then take her to miceland instead.

lxy, Thursday, 11 April 2013 21:35 (nine years ago) link

seeing the northern lights is my main goal in life

smoove operator, Friday, 12 April 2013 03:27 (nine years ago) link

The other day i saw a lady sitting on her stoop reading a book and i thought of dear lxy. Then i noticed she had a cat on a leash! It was hanging out in the yard. So harbl maybe this cat hiking thing could work!

tehresa, Saturday, 13 April 2013 01:42 (nine years ago) link

mookieproof, Saturday, 13 April 2013 04:55 (nine years ago) link

spite n ease (harbl), Saturday, 13 April 2013 19:20 (nine years ago) link

My neighbor said we might be able to see northern lights but I couldn't find any instructions about where to look :(

tehresa, Sunday, 14 April 2013 02:17 (nine years ago) link

xps no ;_;

i did see an amazing shooting star last night - we were driving up the I-5 from LA, the sun had set but the horizon was still bluish, and there was an incredibly bright meteor with a long tail.

we're going to the place in the picture jaq posted above, which, it turns out, has much historical importance, being that it is the site where iceland's parliament was founded in 930. the oldest parliament in the world.

also we're going to geysir, which all geysers are named after. only it's dormant. but there's another one nearby that's active.

and to snæfellsnes, which i've been saying over and over since i first heard of it.

and to the blue lagoon. and to reykjavik, of course.

i think i am going to love iceland.

lxy, Saturday, 27 April 2013 02:42 (nine years ago) link

ughhhhh i want to go there!

spite n ease (harbl), Saturday, 27 April 2013 15:05 (nine years ago) link

smoove operator, Wednesday, 1 May 2013 02:32 (nine years ago) link

it's warm in the lagoon tho

mookieproof, Wednesday, 1 May 2013 04:48 (nine years ago) link

yep, that's the first thing we did after getting here! pretty amazing!

mookie, what time of year were you here? did you know about all the rocks before coming? what was your favorite thing about your trip? did your team win the tournament?

lxy, Wednesday, 1 May 2013 10:08 (nine years ago) link

oops too late!

i was there for basically a long weekend in january. because of the basketball, we were only in reykjavik with a trip to the lagoon.

we finished second -- lost to some former icelandic national team players in their 40s. i was guarding/guarded by one-time laker pétur guðmundsson, who is 7'2". it didn't go well, although he was a super nice guy.

i had a great time, slightly tarnished by drinking too much one night. also i am apparently a good dancer by icelandic standards? probably remembering that part wrong.

mookieproof, Wednesday, 8 May 2013 02:23 (nine years ago) link

i can't stop watching this:
