Let us rejoice in the fact I'm not going to talk about work in this entry. Except if I had figured it out faster that I needed hot yoga to get some of the work-related tension out of my body.

I met up with [personal profile] write_light yesterday. He has been traveling around Iceland with his husband. I showed them around Reykjavík a bit (and Seltjarnarnes :D) and we had dinner. It may sound corny and weird but I love showing my foreign friends around my town. I wish it happened more often (hint: come for a visit - I'll show you around). Also it's always lovely to meet up with great people.

On few of the houses and fences in my neighborhood, there are murals and elaborate graffiti. I actually need to go around take pictures to show you because a lot of it is rather brilliant. But the newest addition to this unconventional gallery of art is a mural on the end house in the row of houses my house is situated in. You can see a picture of the mural here. It was painted this week and the artist started with the eyes and I saw the work at that stage and I knew right away of whom the portrait was. The grandparents of one of my best friends used to live in this house (her cousin owns the house now) and the portrait is of my friend's grandfather, one of the kindest and most loving men I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. This is such a fitting tribute to him.

And then I wrote a rambly thing about celebrity relationships and RPF here on tumblr.

Reminiscing

I seem to need to sleep unnaturally much. I slept eight hours but all I want to do now, is to crawl back to bed.

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] dianora asked for our top six fandom moments (I presume so far). The following is in no particular order.

- Geekmoot (see here and here). A big bunch of lovely and geeky people who understood and adventures in book reading.

- Reading Hermione's 4th Year and with that finding someone who seemed to read the books the way I did. Then consequently finding the SQ.

- Being asked by my co-worker what it was I was reading on the computer and obviously enjoying so much. A short conversation followed explaining fanfiction and asking her if she'd read Harry Potter. The rest is history. (Co-worker in question would be a certain [livejournal.com profile] misspince).

- Standing in line for six hours to buy tickets for an early screening of TTT and then the day of the early screening.

- Posting my first fic on the SQ (At the Eve of Things) and my first reviews coming from three of my favourite authors, [livejournal.com profile] poppy_p, Medusa and Penpusher.

- Starting my own fic archive, ERISED, with [livejournal.com profile] misspince and [livejournal.com profile] michelle_ravel. (Even though the poor thing is a little bit abandoned at the moment).

- Having the lovely [livejournal.com profile] queenriley come to visit me and [livejournal.com profile] misspince.

And today is the birthday of one of the wonderful Geekmooters. The most brilliant and wonderful [livejournal.com profile] mrsronweasley.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LIZ!
