This weekend was unusual but only in the sense that I didn't go out. I spent the entire three nights and two days snuggled up in my room. It was hard and also strange not doing something productive. I'm still not used to my new workload.

Lately, it seems that everyone else's lives are moving at this incredibly breakneck pace. While for once I get to take a break. But I've never had a break I don't know what break is.

I've been having this reoccurring dream every time I've fallen asleep for the past two weeks. Which is actually what prompted me to open this account. Everything feels really plastic, see through and strange these past couple weeks. One second feels like a year and a month a day and a minute an hour.

But this dream. I'm married to a man. He's a little taller than me. He's got blue eyes and freckles and he's African American/Caucasian. We own a little cottage like house where we sell flowers and gifts. But the main attraction are these pizzelle cookies he makes. He'll stack them together with melted chocolate. We wrap them with ribbons and they sell like crazy. The house is next to this empty lot and in the dream, I kinda just stare out the window and think about the sun.

Not actually Iceland but I wish, only place I've ever wanted to go. I appreciate the effort though.

They do sound very appealing. In the dream, I'll have one in my hand and take a bite but I can never taste it or anything. Please do try though.

I hear it's lovely. I mean, I've been there, but I don't remember it, but people tell me I really enjoyed it.

They got geothermal and obituaries and little elf creatures.

The elves looked a lot different from what I expected:

(also don't we have obituaries here, too?)

Yes, but they're all written by Icelandic folks.

these are actually my favorite elves and apparently, in Iceland, there's a handful of rules to follow when writing an obituary. They have whole newspapers that are nothing but obituaries. They seem to be a lil weird about them.

I want my obituary to be written in Icelandic.

Hael dó í kynlífasprengju á tunglinu en var ógnvekjandi. Hann er nú slæmur rass nýr guð.

Now imagine Björk and/or Jónsi saying it.

I honestly cannot imagine anyone saying it, because none of that looks like it can be pronounced and if one did, I fear what foul demon they would summon.

"Reading the daily obituaries—all 10 pages of them—is an important cultural tradition in Iceland. In fact, about one-third of the country’s adult population reads the obituaries section daily."

Wow you weren't kidding. Luckily there's only like 12 people in that whole country so they don't need to write that many of them. Especially since they're probably immortal.

Icelandic actually sounds pretty beautiful when spoken. It has an ethereal, mystical quality. But yeah they have several sounds we don't have in English that I can't reproduce. And jesus, the case system. There are about 13 different ways to say hello depending on the genders and numbers of people you're talking to.

Haha so "kynlífasprengju" up there is how Google translate translated "sex explosion" which literally means "sex bomb". Still, I'm delighted to see they have a single word for "sex bomb". If I contract it to "sexplosion", Google translates it to "kynþroska" which literally means "puberty". Yeah, that sounds about right.

Told you man its wild. Can you imagine after school just chilling with your friends with some coke finding out who died that week?

Especially since with a population that small, there's a good chance you knew at least one of the dead people (or know someone who knew them).
