Blog Day 2009

Blog Day 2009

As some of you maybe already suspect, I am an avid blog reader and there are new discoveries happening every day in my world of sticking-my-nose-into-another-people's-business. So, competition for top five is cutthroat, by all means imaginable. And this years selection of the blogs I want you to visit and worship is following:


Some of you maybe remember this "Brilliantly intelligent, stunningly cool guy." from my Blog Day post last year (others can refresh their memory here). In the meantime, Gerald has only become more focused and determined which, in turn, I'd say betters this e-world by adding more of his wit into it. As you may come to notice davaidavai is also a window into great world of internet socializing and exchange of ideas through other social networking services like twitter, facebook and the such.

Crazy Aunt Purl

It must have been divine providence, me finding her blog in times like these. Funny, eloquent and approachable, southernness living in LA, always fresh and inspiring. And also, she knits! What more can a person ask for from a caretaker deity.... Or famous selp-help book author :-)


Brilliant photographer and even better craftswoman, this wife and mother transplanted from Germany to Japan always makes me want to strive for more, for better, for nicer. She also has great Flickr gallery that I immensely enjoy visiting.


Fun guy that I also had pleasure of meeting in person. Has uncanny ability to open shortcuts into my subconscious sharing his playfulness and weird insight what most often feels like poking my flaws with a sharp stick. I love it.


My absolutely favorite music blog. Also one of the most beautiful and functionally built WebPages, and last but not least - another window into social networking scene.

Research note - EOS

There may come a time to compare notes and to recheck findings. If that time indeed comes I want this to be documented: "It is my opinion that this is a mistake on your part. This will be the candle on the cake of your indecisiveness. Rareness that I spoke of was grossly missrepresented on my part - acceptance of both advantages and vices one person harbors is incredibly rare if partner indeed acknowledges their existance, as it was the case here. Some conditions you cannot replace, cannot replicate. I hope I would be wrong and I wish you good luck. Thank you for everything. It was fun and I enjoyed this very much. Although I am not surprised by course the events took, I am greatly saddened by it. Goodbye. Take care."

I am no good at waiting. I didn't used to be good at waiting. I'm getting better by the second. I'll take the lining silver and build myself some stairs.

Leopardi was damn right

I am very sad tonight.
From time to time, world seems to bend over backwards to show me that it is disgusting and sordid place populated with equally repugnant miscreatens.
And it looks like that every time this happens, my belief in statistical distributions of traits falters and this saddens me because it seems that I'll have to admit that there's only so much I can reinterpret as statistical flukes.

Camping site

Some places just call out for stoping to smell the roses, just like this one has obviously called out Mr. Yellow Snail. In golden light of the morning this again proved as wonderfull choice.

2:42 AM

Awoken from betrayal in movie-like quality. Forever banned from saying: 'I'm sorry.'

As I was taking a breather outside of my hectic workplace this two guys were running their own errands. Funny, though, that they met so perfectly in front of my camera, conversing in Antish, for a brief moment acknowledging the intertwining of concepts for me. So I went back in and gave Hofstadter's "Prelude...Ant Fugue" another read-through. It indeed is a fine piece of reading and I'm really glad we found each other :-)

Tasty treats

As it turned out, some tasty blackberries spent time of our absence rippening to perfect sweetnes. They just left us no choice but to honor their effort by enjoying that succulent goodness while tinkering with ideas and revisiting the notion how that wonderfull slowing-down contraption from Red Planet resembled their semblance.

Sunflower home

The trip went well. We traveled up the 'old road'; through empty villages and quaint towns vivified by current holiday. We ate our sandwiches in colourless, odorless air of Plitvicka jezera and then rolled down to our precious Zagreb. Sunflowers of our yard welcomed us happily back.

Last impressions

It is our last day on Murter. We made our rounds to all nooks and crannies found. We waved our goodbyes to sea urchins and fig trees and in the morning we leave for Zagreb.

School for lizards

This turned out to be a real vacation, with both relaxation and work appropriately represented in our day. While my daughter is building a school for lizards, lacy part of my cardigan is growing row by row.

Snail morning

Awoken too early by the sound of raindrops, we walked into the morning in pace entirely different from his. This wonderful creature posed happily for us while sun was creeping out from behind the clouds.

My secretive friend

Vibrant with colour, this peculiar creature showed us just how well adjusted a predator could be.

Through the bushes

A bit of exploring to find new paths to the beach. Not too hot and excitingly green. I love seeing just a hint of seashore over tops of olive trees; just one whiff of salt in the air, just few sails in a distance, bit of laziness crossing the street. Fig tree looming over street corner.

Handmade Stichmarkers

This lovely garment I've been working on is coming along quite nicely. I'm not usually much of an outdoorsman but knitting under an olive tree has been surprisingly relaxing. Pink stichmarker in the photo is from my first handmade stichmarker set. Fimo and silver wire, along with some tiny beads, and a bit of persistence because making them requires some delicate twisting and binding.

Biograd ferry port

Very barren. Waiting for my offspring to come over from Tkon I was thinking how this place was like a empty canvas, yet it is very appropriate for it to be empty. Marina on one side, tour boats on the other. Middle ground as a place to rest eyes on the barrenness.

There should be easier way for this. How about finally discovering that plug-in brain implant?
