Day 65: Learning Icelandic

Tomorrow is a big night, what with the True Detective finale and my moonshine date with Mr. Dixon. So I figured I should find a useful way to pass the time…and I realized, hey, wait a minute…I’m go in’ to Iceland soon! I don’t have to live my life vicariously through my TV and film “family” […]
