A day in the life of....

Well, felt like I did loads today,

  • managed to get my abstract off for the conference on the 27th. Am generally going to be revamping my graffiti presentation to suit a broader audience. Wonder whether my joking will go down well in the English department...Who cares ;-)
  • Finally sent a letter to Steini, my wee brother, Who´s starting to think I´m deliberately repaying him all those years he spent at boarding school and never wrote me ;-P He´s now ensconed in Amsterdam and when last heard of had been taken in by a Green Whitch (or was it purple?) and is calling himself Walker, all of which is a good thing... You really have to know the family ;-)
  • Ordered a book on Potter off Amazon. The Ivory Tower and Harry Potter: Perspectives on a Literary Phenomenon, Seeing as one of my end of year papers is to be on magic as presented in Harry Potter, the influences this view has had as well as how magic is presented to teenagers... o.k. yes I need to work on the theoretical aspects of it but the main idea is there ;-P
  • Meant to do a lot of arranging appointments in Iceland, only after half an hour swearing in my mind at my doctor did I realise that back home it´s Whitsun weekend, hence noone in...one thing postponed till tomorrow
  • When doing lists like these I really should add as well, got kids up and dressed, made them lunch, got them off to school, washed two machineloads, picked kids up, had them change into Judo gear, delivered them unto Judo lesson and made dinner..... never mind

Vitleysingur! AÐ sjálfsögðu er hvítasunna í útlöndum líka! Fólk, eða þjóðir, augljóslega taka hana bara mishátíðlega ;) btw. heitir ekki steini Steindór Walker? Hefur hann aldrei áður notað Walker nefnið?

Neibbs hann heitir Steindór Walter Þorgeirsson Lawrence. Og Hvítasunnan er að sjálfsögðu einungis haldin hátíðleg af Kristnum, og ber einnig nafnið Pentecost ....

Walter...Einn stafur... damn. Hvaðan gerfur hann upp Walker nafnið - veistu það?
Og með hvítasunnu - eru ekki allir kristnir söfnuðir, þá jafn Kaþólskir, enska biskupakirkjan og mótmælendur með hana á dagskrá? Og með að fólk eða þjóðir taki hana mishátíðlega, þá einimitt var ég að gefa í skyn að það héldu nú vissulega ekki allar þjóðir og menningarsamfélög þetta sem einhvern hátíðisdag. En nú er stóra bretland að stofni til kristið - verðiði ekkert vör við þetta? En páska?

Hi Gunnella... that graffiti I mentioned on Saturday is on the back of the Craiglockhart Sports Centre. You can find it by following the sign that says "Woodland Walk", or by walking along the Craiglockhart Nature Trail starting in a carpark nearby. Cheers!
