A day of an introverted extra (background actor) – Introverted life

Bird, cartoon, drawing, Introverted life, Introvert

A day of an introverted extra (background actor).  Every now and then I work as an extra,  a contrast to being an introvert you may say, but to me, it is fun so I make it work anyway.  Heres how a day may look like…

En dag som statist 1 (640x467)

The night before, pack everything needed for the next day.  I do this so I don`t spend much-needed energy on unnecessary things.  My sense of direction is really bad, so I also make sure that I know where the location is.


En dag som statist 2 (640x455)

The day usually starts very early so I make it to the location in time


En dag som statist 3 (640x518)

look at the map one more time – I have no time to get lost


En dag som statist 4 (640x480)

On a public transport of any sort.  Usually thinking of which stop I need to get off, wich people I might meet, and what’s gonna happen during the day.

Finding the location – (yes, made it with no wrong turns :))


En dag som statist 6 (640x554)

Talking to strangers – and maybe occasionally someone I`ve seen before. To an introvert, this is energy draining.

and waiting a little bit more.  You need to be very patient as an extra – Luckily I am.


En dag som statist 9 (640x574)

Ohhh time to work..


En dag som statist 10 (640x600)

En dag som statist 11 (640x573)

really fun


En dag som statist 13 (618x640)

hours later – my energy levels start to drop and I have to use my will from now on to stay “awake” and social.  Really – it is fun!!


En dag som statist 14 (640x498)

ok, getting really tired now,


En dag som statist 15 (640x584)

Time to go home soon?


En dag som statist 16 (640x556)

Trying to convince myself that I have lots of energy


En dag som statist 17 (640x526)

come on body


En dag som statist 18 (636x640)

……or maybe not


En dag som statist 19 (640x501)

time to go home


En dag som statist 20 (564x640)

Plunder the fridge. Yes I do eat on set, but when I`m home after a long day at work, I just have to have something to eat


En dag som statist 21 (640x584)

Hurray!! Bed!!

Animals of the world, Common European Viper

huggorm (640x412)

  • A venomous snake,  with a pair of long, hollow, venom-injecting fangs attached to movable bones of the upper jaw
  • In several European countries, it is notable as being the only native venomous snake
  • Adults usually grow to 60 cm (24 in) in total length (including tail), with an average of 55 cm (22 in). Maximum size varies by region. The largest, at over 90 cm (35 in), are found in Scandinavia
  • The colour ranges from light grey to brownish, brownish black and black. Underneath its usually dark coloured.  Most have some kind of zigzag dorsal pattern down the entire length of their bodies and tails
  • The Viper is found in both mountains and plains, preferably in dry, hot places
  • It likes to sunbathe
  • The Viper usually hunts in warmer days.
  • In colder regions, like in Scandinavia, it hibernates in the winter – usually several animals together.
  • Adult animals live from different smaller vertebrates, mice, birds, lizards, toads and more, which are killed momentarily by the venomous teeth.
  • A bit is rarely life-threatening, but the patient should as soon as possible seek medical treatment and be subjected to the least amount of effort before reaching a doctor.
  •  It can be found across the Eurasian landmass; from northwestern Europe across southern Europe and Eastern Europe to north of the Arctic Circle, and Russia to the Pacific Ocean. It is found further north than any other snake species

Animals of the world, Elephant

elefant (555x640)



  • The largest living terrestrial animal
  • Elephants trunk is a fusion of the nose and upper lip, although, in early fetal life, the upper lip and trunk are separated. The trunk is elongated and specialised to become the elephant’s most important and versatile appendage. Elephant trunks have multiple functions, including breathing, olfaction, touching, grasping, and sound production. The animal’s sense of smell may be four times as sensitive as that of a bloodhound. The trunk’s ability to make powerful twisting and coiling movements allows it to collect food, wrestle with other elephants, and lift up to 350 kg (770 lb.
  • It has four toes on each foot
  • An elephant’s skin is generally very tough, at 2.5 cm (1 in) thick on the back and parts of the head. The skin is scattered with stiff hairs.
  • Elephants are herbivorous, they eat a daily amount of food, which is equivalent to four percent of their body weight.
  • Elephants can suck up water with their trunk both to drink and to spray on their bodies
  •  Elephants have long lifespans, reaching 60–70 years of age. Animals over 80 years are rare. Lin Wang, a captive male Asian elephant, lived for 86 years
  • The elephants thrive in damp heat, they swim easily, run fast and make long walks.
  • Elephants live in groups with adult males, or in family groups led by an old female. The family group consists of closely related females and their young offspring (calves). The social ties are very strong, and the animals often show behaviour that indicates cooperation. Adult males usually hold together in small flocks that are constantly changing in size and composition, and where social ties are weak.
  • Size is the determining factor in agonistic encounters when the individuals have the same condition. In contests between musth and non-musth individuals, musth bulls win the majority of the time, even when the non-musth bull is larger
  • The oldest elephant species, Moeritherium, are known from early in the tertiary (Eocene, 55-50 million years ago) in Africa, including Egypt. The Moeritherium was the size of a tapir, lacking a trunk, but had extended teeth (initial support teeth) both in the upper and lower jaws
