I’m heading to Reykavic…Rejkaviick….Iceland for the weekend. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, this will hopefully be at least a 3,000 word post when it’s all said and done. I am not going to be eating any whale tartar, in case you were wondering. Also, leaving town on the nicest day of the year to go where it’s 50 degrees is looking like a suspect decision at the moment.
good read on Taco Bell from bw.com (h/t thebiglead.com) – i told ya’ll that Taco Bell rules.
UPDATED PICS FROM ICELAND (original name GODDAMNITSCOLDANDWINDYINJUNEEVENTHOUGHTTHERESTWENTYHOURSOFDAYLIGHTLAND wasn’t considered commercial enough):
Saw this glorious sight on the way in from the aeropuerto
Saw this painting sitting above the bed - not sure the site can handle the number of ????s this deserves following the requisite "WTF?"
Here's a famous church or bowling alley or something
Fridrik Fridriksson - a well-monikered fellow who did some heroic stuff or was a good politician. Sweet statue.
Iceland's motto should be: "Our summer is like a bad Seattle winter, except much windier and colder"
Got to straddle some tectonic plates, which was nice
I have to be honest, I was a little disappointed in Monte Carlo - it looks much better in those James Bond movies.
It's cool, I guess, that somebody uses a wall to show strangers how to tie a tie, but seems like "how to properly wear a scarf" and "the importance of layering, gloves and hats for dumb foreigners" might have been better topics
By request, a new picture of my beautiful feet - depicted here floating in the Blue Lagoon. No, it's not an all-male bathhouse, or the beginning of the Armageddon, as the photo might seem to suggest.
Sam, you might have to move to Iceland - this "KitKat Chunky" looks very much like a BigKat. Would've picked some up but have three large Toblerones weighing us down already.
We decided to swing by and confirm that this TB/KFC was living up to the standard established in the States
The place was packed - YUM knows how to handle their bizness
