- My limit without internet
I haven't really thought about it, but here are some random ideas...
Ten days. That's my limit. But let's suppose that I'm on a desert island, with no people, no print, TV or communication what so ever.
Except that, if we exclude the on line communication in use every day (mail, face, chat, tweet) I think I could live pretty long without wires or wireless connection. Hm..maybe I'm wrong :)
Well, one thing is for sure, I'd have more time for house chores.
- Shifty-Eyed Evader or Unblinking Intimidator?
Different situations call for different measures
ooh, when it comes to staring...I can stare pretty long. Especially if the person I'm facing is "Unblinking intimidator".
Of course there are some rules I always follow..
1. If a person you suddenly bump into when sitting in a cafe alone, minding your own business starts molesting you with some boooooring story- LOOK AWAY, look right away and avoid eye-contact. No doubt she'll get the message.
2. If you're in a bus or a tram and are really tired after a long and hard day at work.... There is an empty seat, you sit, but just can't get over a little lady breathing loudly on your ear (definitely aiming on your seat and)! AVOID EC :D Pretend you're sleeping. Or better yet- you're safe with your earphones on.
3. You're at a bar and there is a guy looking at you. okay..I'll look once, twice...and than "We got contact people"! Don't avoid it! And if he accuses you of staring, say you were looking through him..or maybe something funny if in a mood.
4. While negotiating business or having a serious conversation look 'em in the eye. It shows you're serious, capable and self-confident.
- Writing on favourite place to read
Starting from today I'm officially on holiday. Seaside here I come, and so is my book. Or better yet- books.
Jack London and Niels Larsson packed in my bag and just waiting to be read, somewhere near the Adriatic sea...with the smell of shells, while warm breeze is tangling my hair and kids playing ball while eating some of the finest ice cream...the laughter, and than a sudden "bang"
"Oh look what you've done to this nice ladies' book, you silly", I can already hear the mother.
...yeah kid! My summer adventure now has a taste of chocolate...! Not so bad after all...go figure :D
- Toy Fads From My Childhood Days
Tko se nije skrio, magarac je bio
I remember we used to make toys of our own rather than just buy them...playing in a tree house, or in the backyard, drawing, playing ball or hide and seek. There was a lot of running involved, and we always had the energy.
My brother and I used to play pranks to our grandma, or our neighbors...oh the good old days. We didn't have to wash our hands if we were playing outside because we didn't worry of catching a disease, didn't cry when accidentally fell. We lived with no computer or Internet, cell phones or gadgets- OMG, now I really wonder- how did we survive?! :D
Anyway, I remember always playing with barbie dolls, and when Monopoly came oh it was just a "must have" game. My friends and I enjoyed to cook and bake back then (I don't know where in earth's name has this activity vanished),...and sing a lot..we had our own Spice girls wannabee group. Yap, the famous five was really popular in my time....
- Best journey ever!
Road trip en el sur de Espana, Andalucia
It was definitely last year's trip to Spain.
Diez dias en el sur de Espana, Andalucia!
The fabulous four: Nikola, Davor, Domagoj and me. It was truly unforgettable and very exciting. First we visited Malaga and Torremolinos, than Sevilla, Gibraltar, Cordoba and Cadiz. Rented a car and drove all the way trough Andalucia.
Ate tapas, drank sangria y cidra, visited clubs, ancient buildings and magnificent churches and monuments, Pablo Picasso's birth place, arena de torros, Feria de Malaga...
Oh and the funny things I remember...cockroaches, driving for four hours in a 40 degrees Celsius temperature, making friends with the apes in Gibraltar, small and narrow streets of Sevilla and funny people in Malaga
It was a truly unique experience that I would definitely repeat... oh, Espana voy a guardarte en mi corazon para siempre :*
