Egg master


This weekend was also a roadtrip weekend but before we left for the great unknown I arranged an egg hunt in the back yard for all the guys in the house. I seem to be a great egg hider (or a person with a bad short term memory) since there’s still at least one egg out in the yard.

The roadtrip took us to lanscapes that sent True Detective chills down our spines but it was still oh so beautiful.

My favorite stories


I love all kinds of stories but my favorite ones are the ones about how people met for the first time. How people met their significant other, their best friend or their tennis partner. Small moments that changes the life more or less of those people from there on. The best part? Everyone has a story like that to share.

So let’s have a theme week on Leave a story!

Give me your best how I met my best friend/partner/lover/cat story and I’ll draw you my best pictures!

A little something about me

Apparently “good internet presence” requires some kind of presentation + contact info so I’ve been putting together an about page for My Corner Shops.

These things always makes me confused. “Describe yourself in a few sentences” sends me into an existential crisis in just a couple of seconds and I soon find myself in a corner in fetal position sobbing “who AM I!?”.

Well, it took me a couple of months but here’s my “few sentences”.


So beautiful but still so treacherous

We’ve really gotten into the hiking thing so we went to Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve in Los Altos. It was absolutely breathtaking but I was kinda nervous ’cause I’d read that there could be coyotes, rattlesnakes, tarantulas and mountain lions in the woods. Most of my nervousness was based on the fact that I saw this little gif yesterday:


What one drop of snake poison does to a small amount of blood.

So naturally we bid all nearby hikers on quite a show when one of us accidentally stepped on an actual snake. We leapt like screaming gazelles.

Your choice


It’s time to get started on the next site in the My Corner Shops project and I’d be delighted if you’d like to help me decide which one I’ll do next.

I’m currently choosing between these five:

The post office 

The broker company

The video store

The library

The travel agency

Which one should I do next?
