I did vow to use this more often.

So, last day of EVE Fanfest was today. It was really odd, and I wasn't all that comfortable covering it because I don't play the game - I felt a lot more at east at Blizzcon, for example. Still, got four pieces done, so hopefully bosses will be fine with that :P

Iceland is cold! I should have brought a hat/gloves - but I didn't. Luckily, the Icelandics were thoughtful enough to have stores where you can buy these things.

Tomorrow the press gets to go on a scenic tour or something. Should be fun. And then I spend *all day* flying back on Monday the 10th.

It was strange to fly out of JFK on Tuesday right as the first polls were closing, and then by the time we landed in Reykjavik the election had been called. But there weren't any TVs or newspapers in the airport so we didn't find out who had won for like an hour and a half until we asked someone at the convenience store XD

It's kind of cool not to feel awkward about saying you're an American. Hell, I've had like five random people in bars / whatever (the Icelandics party hard) just strike up conversations about the election. They like Obama over here.

Still no luck tracking down a Wrath of the Lich King collector's box :( I want the pet.

Oh also HOW THE FUCK DO THEY LIVE WITHOUT THE SUN. seriously it like SORT of comes up between 10 and 3 but it's like... perpetual dawn/twilight, never really daylight. And then it's pitch dark by 5.
