The Birth of Kolbeinn Jón Jónsson
Yesterday Anna Pálsdottir and I finished up Level I of Beginner´s Icelandic. We have grown to enjoy our teacher, who in the vernacular of my father is a ´real character´. It is a great to have a teacher that really loves to teach language, enjoys people, and is extremely jovial. He is really fun, and a brilliant mad scientist of a linguist. He has a modest goal of cleansing Europe of it´s unrefined use of language and bringing all people´s everywhere back to the Icelandic from which it came. I have similiar goals in life and enjoy his exuberance.
We received our test scores for the course yesterday and mine came with a new moniker and the elusive ink, ´giraffe stamp´. God often gives people a new name as He calls them into new pursuits in His kingdom. I have received mine at the hand of a linguist prophet and pray that it comes with all the blessings of Abraham, who was called Abram; Israel, who was called Jacob; And Paul, who was called Saul. Next week we start Beginner's Level 2.
