About in shade
A cocktail of personality traits hard to digest for some but ultimately soothing for those who can. I observe, enjoy, travel, interact, photograph, dance, contemplate, write and love my way through this life's countless occurrences. This blog is a way to share with the world and its people some of the treasures they give me every day.

- I suspect I’m not entirely right in the head…

- 60km on a cross bike… Because why not? Aka ‘day trip to Lhota lake’.
- Laia: Zoukeira who cannot be trusted? Decide for yourselves, but you’ve been warned.
- How to lose a client in 10 seconds

Nothing heavy this time, just an up-date on the miscellaneous events of the first couple of weeks of 2012 :). 1. In case you haven’t noticed it yet all over my Facebook and elsewhere – the MAD DAWN Challenge project … Continue reading

“Give a man fish – he will live for one day. Teach a man to fish -he will live for a lifetime. Teach a man religion – he will die of starvation while praying for fish…” (somewhere on the internet…)
This is EPIC :D. And the guy deserves a medal :).
Sometimes we all tend to complain over the lack of excitement in our lives… Forgetting that it is, in fact, all in our hands! This is a story of someone who robbed banks for a living – enjoy and get … Continue reading
God here. First, I do not exist. The concept of a 13,700,000,000 year old being, capable of creating the entire universe and its billions of galaxies, monitoring simultaneously the thoughts and actions of the 7 billion human beings on this … Continue reading
Warning: profanity ahead 😉 Every now and then I enjoy going off on swearing sprees. Not to prove anything at all – just for the fun of it (I am not even very good at it either, I’m afraid 😦 … Continue reading
Is it just me who pays attention to the song lyrics?.. That “Grenade” one worked me up enough for this dissection not so long ago, and now I had a sudden epiphany about the good old “Irreplaceable”. You can look … Continue reading
If you are naive enough to think that washing dishes is no rocket science, maybe you are one of those people who does it all wrong :). I accept that maybe I am under some mysterious spell that only allows … Continue reading
My lovely flatmate is a consistent source of joy – I mean it in the most direct and sincere way. The last time she warmed my heart was a small episode related to something as mundane as toilet paper :). … Continue reading
This ‘meta-romantic, heart-ripping-out-ly-intense’ darn pop song has embedded itself in my brain for several hours on repeat yet again (thank you, radio!) and I realized I finally had to do something about it. I am dead certain when Bruno Mars … Continue reading
Sarcasm is one of my favorite languages. Some people say it’s a defense mechanism – against what, I ask? Against dull people, I reply to myself. Sense of self-irony and self-mocking is vital – without it our egos would grow … Continue reading
Company slogans have become a part of our collective consciousness as it is… However, there are many ways to look at all things, right? Let’s pick the funny side. Below is a list of some company slogans – some you … Continue reading
“This is impossible!” – said Reason. “This is madness!” – pointed out Experience. “It’s useless!” – cut off Pride. “Just try …” – whispered Dream…. “What? Again?! “- outraged, asked Experience. “Ha, because of me as usual” – smiled Cause. “No! Because of me!!!!” – disagreed Pride. “Hey, maybe it’s unnecessary?” – murmured Caution. “Go to hell, Caution!” – yelled Courage. … Continue reading
