No. Not real snow, but a snow test on set for the Christmas show. We came in to watch it snow and felt actually cold. That might have been because the large door was open, but I think it was the snow. Granted, it’s really shredded paper but it looks more exciting than that.

The Wind

The weather was lovely today, but incredibaly windy. I went for a walk, and the wind grabbed me as soon as I came out the door. It ushered me all the way into town, pushing me when I wasn’t going fast enough and stopping me in my tracks when it wanted to show me something.

Sam Paden’s Gallery Opening

The highlight today was Sam Paden’s gallery opening. He’s going to be reviewed on Wednesday in the Grapevine, which is the English language newspaper. Afterwards I went shopping with Suzy and found a coat that I fell in love with. Today was Taxfree day, so the stores weren’t charging tax for anything that was made

Playing Tourist

Suzy, an friend of Sam and Jodi’s from Portland, was in town this week. I know her from Tapestry Theater, but this was the first time that I’d spent any time with her. The four of us went to the Turf Cottage for lunch. It’s delightful, and has a really wonderful fish soup. You see

A Day Off

Somewhat surprisingly, I have today off. I’ve been revising and printing out manuscripts of short stories and now I’m off to the post office to mail them. Postcards too!

I was right. We didn’t work until 4:00 yesterday, but then we were in for the rest of the day, so that was nice. I was frustrated because there was a series of shots that were difficult but didn’t look hard. It was mostly about finding a place where I could reach the things that

Clever me.

When Raymond dropped me off last night, I realized–after he pulled away–that I’d left my purse at the studio in our hurry to leave. I had no keys, no phone, no money. Fortunately Reykjavik is small, so I walked to the Fron, where David lives, borrowed his car keys to drive to the studio and

Sleeping in.

We weren’t called until 11:15 today, so I skipped yoga. None of us have anything to do yet, so I’m going to head back to the puppet shop to play with the hand puppets some more.

Nothing to do

Today, Raymond, Thor and I were the only puppeteers called. We did one shot and have done nothing since. Fortunately, Jonathan Judge (our new director) chose today to present us with a cheap set of Punch and Judy hand puppets, which we’ve been cheerfully modifying all day into the cast of the show. I’ll post

Fall colors

People keep telling me that I need to get out and see the fall colors. I keep thinking, “How? You have no trees here.” I went on a walk with Richard Wolanski, which mostly involves walking a few feet and then stopping to take pictures. These were all taken around Thingvellir. The landscape looked like

I work with really nice people. I was a little nervous because I’d invited thirty people over and only thought they would all fit, but hadn’t tested it. It was great; my apartment has a perfect configuration for parties because all the rooms open off of a center foyer. The foyer is fairly large so

I went to have my hair cut today at and feel pretty good about it. I like the cut, but I’m worried about working in it, because Sigrunn didn’t completely believe me when i said that I had to tuck my hair behind my ears. There’s nothing quite as bad as having hair in your

Balancing Icecream

I’ve just been practising balancing a quadruple scoop fake icecream on a cone. Ah, the joys of puppetry. In a related story, I don’t think I’ve mentioned that Fridays we have icecream at lunch. They don’t normally serve dessert, so everyone gets very happy about icecream Friday. It’s like we’re all kids again.
