It didn’t take me long last night to follow the scent of nerd sweat to the nearby Icelandic Bar. I saw Michael Bolton III there, and a little piece of the man in me died. I ran into Keith Neilson, who had done up his hair in the popular Gallente style of late, shocking red spikes. It suited him, I suppose. The usual suspects were there, and much fun was had.
I returned much later that evening to my room to wind down with the Icelandic porn I had talked about, but by the time I hit the bed, I was asleep.
This morning I enjoyed a large breakfast with a breathtaking view. I had forgotten how beautiful Iceland is when there isn’t rain and fog everywhere. Afterwards, I decided I want to enjoy a hot pool. Conveniently, there is one in my hotel.
In my room I got naked, and wanting to respect the traditions surrounding me, headed downstairs.
I met another man in the elevator, not naked, and realized I had misjudged tradition. I broke the ice. “I’m naked.” I said. “Looks just like the rest of us.” he replied.
“Except bigger.” I added. We both laughed.
The hostess escorted me to the hot pool, then politely pointed out that I am not required to be nude in my travels. “Darlin, I did this for your enjoyment.” She blushed, walking away.
The hot pools in Iceland are amazing. And they are also a quick and convenient way for nerds to employ both hygiene and social skills at the same time. It’s a win/win for everyone involved.
While relaxing in the pool, aromatherapy candles burning, I thought of Katrin.
I had met her in the commercial port prior to arriving here.
She was everything a man could fantasize about – tall, beautiful, fit, a smile that could disarm most ships. I was immediately on my guard. I had learned from my past that any pretty lady that looked dangerous usually was. Thanks for that, Mynxee.
She was charming, likable, and we quickly found ourselves engaged in conversation. I gave her the obligatory signed autograph and WWRD bracelet, and she in turn wanted to have a live photo of me.
While the hot waters swirled around me I remembered that there was also Katrin facial tissue in my bathroom. I chuckled.
I wound down my routine with a hot sauna. When I say hot, I mean I couldn’t even sit, so stood in the middle of it for less than five minutes before having to leave. They do things right here.
A quick shower, and I am returned to my room.
Sadly, it’s time to leave you, dear reader, as I just got a call from downstairs. Some friends have arrived. Should be a fun time.
