Ok, today’s icelandic word is

svangur meaning hungry pronounced svowngur (first part ryhmes with frown)

I am hungry translates to ég er svangur. This is the masculine adverb.

You can use the clan finder I redesigned recently. Note the inspiration I took from Google ;-)

We’re off to see Amplifico this week at NexusLive. Tune in if you can to support Amplifico’s webathon (the first ever apparently) to raise funds to record their first album. They sound like a fun bunch and their music sounds great too. All donators will be credit on the album sleeve, plus if you send them a photo of yourself you’ll pic will in a photo montage in the sleeve too.

Ok, today’s icelandic word is

bíll meaning car pronounced biikll

Two letter ls together sounds like the kl of the word klingon. It appears in the middle or at the end of a word.

Jen and Chris, you’ll have to get your picture up there!

I’m gonna be learning one icelandic word a day starting today. By learning I mean remembering the spelling and the pronounciation. The word for today is:

afmæli meaning birthday pronounced aam-eye-lei

which is apt, as it’s Steinunn’s birthday today. We spent half the morning recovering from last night’s impromptu drinking session. We watched England lose the football at the Three Sisters in Cowgate, met Lee from Lancaster spout on about how life was brilliant, passed a few cheeky half pints through the iron railings of the pub to a man who called himself Jesus, and then hit a few more pubs in the Grassmarket.

The second half of the morning Steinunn opened up the pressies I got for her that took me about an hour to wrap! I’m sure it would have taken most folk just 5 minutes, but like most blokes, I’m useless at wrapping. I think she liked the stuff i got.
