As most people may have noticed, the icelandic economy is in a bit of a pickle.... I will not pretend to be understanding the whys and hows, but it sure makes it less fun to be shopping when the krona is getting less and less worth in relation to the €/$/£ or the cool original krona... (norwegian currency... ;) )

My friends will probably suggest that i like electronic gadgets and buying them in foreignia always was the way to go. As of now though, i will settle for posting my frustrations here and wait for things to recover, so that i eventually may shop again.


And if Santa reads my blog (hihi)...... here is my list of planned purchases:

Hirota #163 custom karate-suit
Ear Force X4 headphones for my Xbox 360
Red 2 GB Ipod Shuffle for working out
Ipod Classic for the car
Flip Mino HD with custom faceplate
Logitech Harmony 1000 remote
24" monitor for my PC
Smallish but powerful laptop
42" LCD with wall-mount

Some of these does seem a bit overzealous, i agree, but a new karate-suit and the X4 headset seems very important. I need to find a way of getting those here in not too long.

Dear Einar

Things have been awfully tough with the economy being down lately. I hope you understand when I say that my sleigh will not be as packed as it should be with nearly the entire north poles savings gone. The elves need their pay and I need my salary. I would like to say that the one gift that I have for you in happy abundance is love. It fills you up and gives you a warm feeling inside. Love brings people together in bonds of fellowship and happiness. But the most important thing about love in this time of economic peril is that love is cheap. I hope you have a Merry Christmas.
