One more thing

to distract and keep me up at night.

Play Games at AddictingGames

I really like these simple strategy games, although I admit I do not seem to be very good at them.

While getting all the papers and filling out the forms for my permit to stay I noticed something terrible.
It expired yesterday! So I really have to get moving now. I will hand it in tomorrow. And until they finish processing it, I am again an illegal immigrant.
Funny how these things happen, time is going by so fast I can hardly believe that I have been here almost 2 years.

Supper on Toys R Us

Last Friday I went for dinner with my co-workers. We were given a lot of money to go for supper from head office, to treat us for our amazing hard work that has been done. As one of the highest selling stores, and being constantly short staffed, we have worked an insane amount. This meal was well earned.
We went to Caruso, a very nice place down town.
From left to right we Albert, Einar and Tina. Albert will be store manager soon, Einar is the funniest guy in the store and Tina is engaged to Albert. She also works at the information desk.

Here is Elsa, a part time Cashier.

Einar was drunk, it actually got worse as the night went on because he had a bottle in his coat that we was topping up his Coke with.

Elsa did not want this picture.

She said this one was OK.

This is the funniest looking salad I have ever seen. It is called a Tomato Salad, but it looks like it is missing something to be called a salad.

Einar at his worst.

This is a good one!

I was hoping to avoid having my picture taken, it did not work as well as I would have liked.

Here is Ingi, he only works part time on Information.

Jón Thor, Section Leader of small toys. He gets offended when people ask him about girls toys. He wants to know of he looks like the kind of guy who would know about girls toys.

And a cranky looking Albert.

I would saty the night was a huge success, even if only half the staff turned up. How could you miss out on a meal like that? It is a once a year, at the most, opportunity.

Whats New?

Well, it is really just life as usual. These are some pictures, in no particular order.
Ah Rósa, never too many pictures of her.

Sleeping Rósa.

A protest by truck drivers over gas prices left me stuck on the bus in one spot for an hour one morning. It was a long day.

Most people waited outside to see if they could catch a glimpse of what was going on.


Kasper graduated from this seasons Occupational Therapy lessons and they had a tea party celebration. The kids made us chocolate cupcakes. It was great.

Stefán got his wish for some McDonalds.

Davíð, our spokesman on the importance of eating a good breakfast.

Here is some more traffic from that protest.

I was going crazy. If I would have know, I would have brought a book.

An eye on Reykjavík

This is kinda neat, you can watch a camera that is downtown.

So if you have extra time, you can always look for me here!
