The week just flew by...


I fell of a horse. Not to worry, I didn't hurt myself all that much and to be honest the horse seemed to be more terrified of the fall than I did. I should have used a saddle. But as the saying goes, one rider falls, another two saddle up! Look at these two fearless little cowboys above!


Gay Pride was happening here last weekend. It is one of the biggest festivals in Reykjavik each year. I am proud to announce that I have attended six out of the seven
happenings. And they get bigger every year. The first year, there were 30 people who gathered I think :)This year there were thousands. Which is a high percentage in Iceland! I appreciate the openess and live-and-let live attitude of the Icelanders. Although, to be quite truthful...I have a wonderful, caring and sexy gay friend. And sometimes when I look at him I can not help but think "there are so few good ones out there for us, why do you have to drive your car on the other side of the road?"
But alas...they seem so very happy!

I am glad you are ok. Falling off anything is not fun.

So that's the reason for driving on the other side of the road. Always wondered about that.

Don't worry, someone will show up soon for you. :)

Beautiful horse pictures. And are those daring actors relating to you? :)

At 15:21, Blogger Doug said...

Wow, a little trick rider! Good that you had fun at the gay pride event. Window shopping, I guess?

one of my best friends in the whole world is gay, and i used to think the same thing about him... not for myself, but for a couple of our mutual single girlfriends! but he's in a loving relationship and is very happy, so i'm happy for him. the parade sounds like a great event, and i'm guessing you had a lot of fun!

sooooo glad you didn't hurt yourself falling! i love your "fall off the horse" saying... here it's something like "get back on" (after you fall off) which is more of a "life" message, since it applies to so many circumstances.

happy Tuesday, sweet Minka! (sorry the Snark post was late today, won't happen again. or, maybe it will... who knows? certainly not me!) xox

At 18:45, Blogger Minka said...

Brian, thank you, but according to the proficy he was surposed to have fallen in love with me two months ago! That is the last time I am listening to women searching for meaning in a tea cup!

Tim, I am proud to announce that those two boys are the elder sons of my Icelandic sister. The younge rone, wa sput on a horse by me!

Doug, yep window shopping. And there were quite a few things I owuldn´t have minded trying on ;)

neva, well...you´ll try your best and hopefully it wonæt happen again. See, I wa strying to be first and all!

At 18:53, Blogger Doug said...

You mean a feather boa, right?

At 18:57, Blogger Minka said...

Sure, Doug, sure...it was a feather boa I wanted to try on *grins*

At 18:59, Blogger ariel said...

why, Monika, I've never gotten off a horse in any other way than falling off. thought that was normal...

At 19:09, Blogger ariel said...

I LOVE those horses! they're so sweet and pretty.

At 19:09, Blogger brian said...

Err Minka, about that two months ago thing...meeeting someone and all? Well, wasn't it about two months ago that we met? Oops! Sorry for messing up the prophecy...well, not sorry for meeting you. Maybe for the next reading you should try runes...or bones or something more Celtic. :)

At 19:43, Blogger Doug said...

Brian, I guess the oracle left out the part about his being married, huh? I guess she assumed it went without saying.

At 20:09, Blogger Minka said...

ariel, when you get here, I´ll get you all the pretty horses you want to fall off;)

brian, That is right. Why didn´t I think of that. Oh...that´s right: DIANE!!!!! remember? :)

Doug, stop flashing your teeth, it makes your ears look scary! :)

At 21:04, Blogger brian said...


You would let little ol Diane come between us? Oh woe is me! What will happen now to the saga!! The epic story of the Bunny and the Penguin. *wails, as he hops off stage*

At 21:14, Blogger ariel said...

Brian, you have just decided an old debate between me and someone. I always said that "Lovely Rita, meter maid, nothing can come between us" means nothing can stand in the way of the happiness of Paul and lovely Rita, but someone said, it means that nothing is going to happen between Paul and lovely Rita. I won! thank you! in return, my advice: be Muslim, they can have 4 wives.

At 21:23, Blogger brian said...


Glad I could help. True love conquers all. Inconceivable!!!!

At 23:17, Blogger mireille said...

LOL! ...wrong side of the road... LOL! And good idea about getting a headstart on next summer. xoxo

At 00:50, Blogger Fred said...

Falling off is better than never having tried to ride at all.

At 00:56, Blogger Minka said...

Brian, can you imagine what our kids would look like? A cross between a bunny and a penguin? I mean the story would move from Shakespeare to Mary Shelley in an instant!

Ariel, I am not sure I am getting this, but I support yoru winning :)

Zockso, welcome back. Glad i mad eyou laugh!

Fred, embarassingly enough...I have been riding for quite a while. That is why it came as a shock;)

At 01:49, Blogger G said...

I forgot what the post was what with the saga in the comments. Oh yeah - cute future circus kids. Hope you're okay after the fall. The Gay Parade in New York is the most colorful. Not from a gay perspective, you is or you ain't, but from your ahem, commentors' - did I not see a picture of your boyfriend somewhere? You know what, let's just leave the mystique. What color boa did you buy?

At 03:05, Anonymous shayna said...

those kids are something else!!! Hope you are okay!

I have several gay friends that I so wish would have swung my way back in the day! :)

At 04:21, Blogger Logophile said...

Being from WA state I didn't realize you could have gay pride events without nakedness and bicycles, wow, the rest of the world does it weird
Look at those circus kids, that is great, now we need pics of you standing like that.

At 04:35, Blogger ariel said...

a Beatles song, Lovely Rita.

At 11:30, Blogger Minka said...

g, it was rianbow-coloured, of course ;)

shayna, sometime sit seems like a waste, doesnæt it?

Logo, Icelanders get all kinds a naked any day of the week. Keeping our clothes on is what makes a good festival over here;)

ariel, I missed the whole Beatle Mania. I was too young and I lived in east Germany. I do however know the itheory that we all live in a yellow submarine :)

At 11:31, Blogger brian said...

Morning Minka,

There's a difference btwn Hamlet and Frankenstein? Who knew!

Our kids would end up ruling the world.LOL

GQ-There is always a saga around here, what with her boyfriend and all that.;)

At 11:33, Blogger Minka said...

Brian, maybe I should give you my last boyfriend´s e-mail. He will make you less eager :)

At 12:48, Blogger brian said...

Minka! How could I possibly be less eager? :)

Last ex-boyfriend?

At 19:46, Blogger ariel said...

I was born after the Beatlemania, too, but it didn't keep from being in love with John Lennon for a moment. :-P

At 20:18, Blogger Minka said...

well ariel, we all have our moments. Mine was David Hasselhoff I am embarassed to say :)
