This weekend has been pretty lazy, which is really nice sometimes. It’s actually raining at the moment (!!!), so it’s nice to sit at the desk and watch the rain fall outside. Friday night, Jeremy and I went to get a beer at Telegraph Brewing Company. It’s a local brewery that opened up a tasting room recently, and all the fresh beers are inexpensive and delicious. We talked to a guy from Amsterdam for about an hour, and it was fun to talk to him about all his favorite things about his hometown. Georgia’s Smokehouse food truck was out front, and it was really tempting. It’s not healthy food, and since I don’t eat meat there’s not much for me on the menu, but it smelled good nonetheless. I wanted to hire them to cater our rehearsal dinner because of our Southern connection, but it didn’t work out.
After our beers, we headed to Whole Foods to get stuff for dinner to bring back to the apartment. We then watched Your Sister’s Sister, which we really enjoyed.
On Saturday, in between doing laundry, I went for a six-mile run. It really sucked. I was proud of myself though, because after doing three miles and just telling myself I should keep going since I took two days off, I realized that no, this is supposed to be fun and I’m really not enjoying myself. So I turned around and just finished the six. That night, we watched another movie, this time Prince Avalanche.
This morning we met a friend at The Shop down the street, and had a delicious breakfast. Tonight I think we’re going to get some Thai food (we were inspired after doing research about traveling to Thailand), and meeting a coworker for a drink at our favorite bar. Nice and easy weekend, just like I like ’em.
Oh yeah, I’ve also been trying to learn how to say some Icelandic phrases to prepare for our trip… hjálp!
I also realized that I’m running a full marathon four months from today!!!! Which scares the crap out of me. Once again… hjálp!
Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
Everyone speaks perfect English in Iceland and they’ll be very modest and say they speak English not so well. I felt very comfortable and at ease in Iceland.
That’s great to hear! I can’t wait.
You might find yourself needing to use the “leave me alone” phrase (although I hope not!). I’ve come across some sketchy people while traveling! Argh, a marathon in four months – I’m nervous/excited for you! I still need to find one to sign up for!
I’ve heard that Iceland is one of the safest countries to visit (only 125 people in jail in the whole country!), so I hope not too. It’s good to know though! ahhh I’m so nervous… I hope I’m not in over my head!
How did you like both movies? The dining room table scene in “Your Sister’s Sister” is one of my favorite, because it really feels real and like you know those people! I want to hear the Dutch guy’s recommendations 🙂 Love you!
The acting in that entire movie is SO GOOD. We really loved it. Prince Avalanche was good too! love you too!
