So let's put on our classics and we'll 'ave a little dance, shall we?

The Streets' first album is awesome for occupying your mind while working inside a fish factory.

Ooh, also, here's a list of UnderSea Invertebrate* songs:

1. Prawn Dream - Boys Boys Boys
2. The Mollusk - Ween
3. Octopus' Garden - The Beatles
4. Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie - Joanna Newsom
Edited to add: Rock Lobster - B-52's! How did I even miss that?

And a bonus:

5. Under the Sea from the Little Mermaid - cause duh, it's sung by a crab!

*This is totally how I'm going to make playlists for work from now on.


What else? It is Friday tomorrow, and now I'm one of those people who only works from Monday to Friday. Therefore, I am pleased at this (predictable) turn of events.

Ooh, next weekend, Ross and I are going to Akureyri, as a late honeymoon type dealie! My lovely great uncle Bjössi's family gave us a weekend away as a wedding present, and we're finally using it - exciting times.

I totally love hotels. An exciting new bathroom with tiny shampoo, someone whose job is to make your bed for you and hang up your towels, and... Hmm, I don't really know what it is that I like so much. It's just one of those things that feels like a super extravagant treat to me, although I'm sure if it was something I did all the time, I'd get sick of it. But for now it makes me feel like a special human, so I'm looking forward to it!

Also, Akureyri: it's the only place apart from Reykjavik that qualifies as a city. Everything else is a town or smaller. So we'll do some shopping (but probably more 'looking at shops' than actual buying), eat some exciting exotic food from a restaurant that isn't Ólafshús, and maybe even go to the movies!

Can you tell I'm very excited?


In other news, I have decided that sloths are my new favourites:

And one for Henry. I'm pretty sure he also likes sloths.
