Whatchamacallit 132: i’i shetland

i'i shetland

This copy of i’i shetland is from my visit to the Shetland Islands in 2013.

i’i shetland is a magazine clearly aimed at locals – more so than any other magazine of this ilk that I’ve ever had the pleasure to read.

The reason I kept the magazine was the “celebrations parties” section at the back of the magazine. It features photographs of locals out celebrating events – birthdays and hen parties.

It was the “French” themed party that caught my attention: while most of the attendees wore stereotypical French clothing, 9 of the guests showed up dressed as frogs.

I cannot tell you how much I laughed upon seeing the photo the first time.

Party in Shetland.

That photo is the sole reason I did not recycle the magazine, instead it sits on a shelf and whenever I run into it, I remember the photo and I start laughing all over again.

Does that make me a bad person?

During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
