Work and wait.

Today has alternated between very busy and very slow. This morning I worked almost constantly until lunch assisting Julie with Bessie. I got a compliment from Magnus. I was making Bessie’s feet wiggle as she lay on a lounge chair and he said “I like the feet jiggling.” Of course everything else in that shot

Stop the bus.

I pass this bus stop every day on my way to work. This is my boss. Almost all the bus stops in Reykjavik have a picture of one of the cast members. And since some of you have asked about the people that I keep mentioning, here’s a picture of Sarah (who plays Trixie) and

Health contest

The newest thing at work is a health contest between the different departments. We are all supposed to keep track of what we eat and exercise; points are awarded for each thing. There’s a prize at the end of the month for the healthiest person. Whee.

The Crown Princess of Sweden

This morning we had a visit from royalty. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden came to visit work and we had a huge stage scene that would never happen in the real show. The number of photographers and reporters that filled the stage was more than a little astounding. The princess herself seemed lovely and quite

Cheating a little

I went back to add the entries that I would have put in over the weekend if I’d had computer access. You can click on the link to Things that Happen at Home to jump to Saturday’s entry, or just scroll down. Today is much slower than yesterday. We did two puppet shots this morning;

Shoe Tytus 6000

When the episode Remote Control finally airs, I am the Shoe Tytus 6000. It’s a shoe tying machine that the character Pixel invented to tie his shoes. In order to work it, I lay on my back under the floor of the set, wedged up into the puppet by a series of apple boxes. Once

Dinner Party

I had my first dinner party in Iceland. I think that it’s a sort of nesting thing that I need to do to feel comfortable in a new space. The apartment that I’m in has china that is similar to the china that Rob and I have at home. I invited Jodi, Sam, Sarah and

Things that Happen at Home

I went shopping at Hagcaup, which is sort of the Icelandic Fred Meyers, with Sarah on Saturday. We had coffee and a pastry (pecan pie for me) afterward–I actually found decaffinated coffee. I know this may not seem like much, but I’ve had a really hard time finding it, and regular coffee does not agree

The ingenue is ill.

Today we’re shooting the music video for this episode, so I was on set all morning assisting. The afternoon looks like it will be very different, because one of the cast members is sick. She worked the morning, but I think they’ve sent her home for the afternoon. Speaking of home, this is the apartment

New Apartment

I moved yesterday into my new apartment. I should be here till the end of the year. It’s much closer to downtown and stores, which is nice. Some of the decor is…not to my taste, but the apartment itself is great. This is my new bedroom, with amazing light. At least right now. The bed

Bollywood/Hollywood

We went to see the late show of Bollywood/Hollywood last night. The previews had looked really good, but the movie was not. It just couldn’t decide what it wanted to be, and the pacing was dreadful. I wanted to like it, but it just didn’t happen.
