Sitting on the sofa, sipping coffee and looking forward to our Icelandic version of Thanksgiving today.
It will be a my brother's house and he's arriving from LA this morning.
Don't know how he does this flying back and forward, he was just in Australia too. Looking forward to getting together with my family.
In other news, we have a brand new prime minister, Katrín Jakobsdóttir, our second female one. She is young and brilliant and one of the few politicians i think you can actually trust. The downside is she has formed a coalition with the party who was just ousted after a scandal. I just hope she can keep them in check. The last couple of winters I've been taking a course she teaches on the latest icelandic novels each year (she has a degree in literature) and I'm guessing she won't be teaching it this year.
If she governs as well as she teaches, we're in good hands. We'll see. At least this coalition has very ambitious plans for environmental issues which I like. We have so much clean energy so we should be doing much better than we are now.
We've also been having a #metoo revolution like many other countries. We're doing it a bit differently, the stories are coming out anonymously so nobody is getting ousted. But the stories are awful, especially from the entertainment industry. I'm so glad to see this happening after everything I've seen and heard and experienced through the years. (Nothing serious has happened to me but bad enough).
