Today was a humid 30c and the poles were melting under the weather, the locals assumed that I was used to it and praised my cool head... Fools I was all floppsy too. ah well - heres to keeping illusions up.
...here's where the story ends...
Polish BBQ's & Successful Hostage Negotiations
We were invited to a small Polish garden-lot and had a party in a small and quaint cabana. There was the usual that i have come to know and love and the laughs and food and vodka.
My green curry chicken with lime went down a treat and now I am known as a great cook... for those who know me they know I am unremarkably average! Either way it is good for my reputation, which I have done my best to craft and keep.
I took the queue to leave the bbq after the lovely Jane (protecting her real name) got a call from the manager of a bar she works at part time to go and help - they were inundated and so, she swished on her bright red cape over her admirable curves and we left with her. We went back to the bar and the place had cleared, so I took that as a sign to end the evening and have a cup of peach tea there...
I convinced Captain pisshead that he should come with me while he could still walk and open the front door. I was shocked, he agreed.
Tomorrow I have lunch with new friends, a couple I know and I am pleased they are interested in me. It is nice to view a foreign life each day but it is more important to be in it and feel it flow through you...

Thoughts from 1.15am...
Thoughts at 1am
Of course what he never said but always meant is that it's extremely painful to turn away and start...

1 plus 1 equals 1 - The economics of love
Friday, May 18, 2007
A nice long sleep in and some good chats today have rejuvenated me somewhat and now I have what remains of the day, which is quickly fading into twilight, to have some fun and relax...
Someone is still on my mind a lot but she is difficult to catch, though even if we do. What will it change?
Obi, feeling the age of his bones today...
The big plus is that my little town is hosting a music festival and only a few hundred metres from my house! Cool baby!

I stand corrected...
Obi corrected but not any better off...

Revelations of a door mat
4. What do you do when you have a friend who you have supported and cared for through some very dark and lonely times in the last 18+ months. Who acknowledges your efforts and asks to be told when they can do the same to support and be leaned on. Then when you do need that person really badly she fobs you off for a phone call and espouses some made up on the spot MSN etiquette that real people come first. Now, I have put off sleeping to the early hours, stopped meals and ignored my own phone and responsibilities to be available to speak to this friend at length for hours, to cheer her up and offer her support and just sometimes just to keep her company as she drank alone in her apartment miserable. What do you do when you are nicely kicked in the guts when this is pointed out?
Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal. Sociopaths are interested only in their personal needs and desires, without concern for the effects of their behavior on others. (Compare psychopath.)

D Day B Flat
I also have a few dozen things I should do, like find a job for 2 months in July... Now I have checked and I cannot work in the UK. Damn!
I have to create my own business course here and a general conversational English course. 2 X 4 Weeks X 3 Lessons a week... The Boss and staff are behind this, which is good, but I have to create the work and walk the walk.
I have planned to go on holiday through England and Ireland. Travelling happily with a sweet little minx I know, but that plan is out the window, sorry baby...
Today I have to fill out my Polish residency application, tomorrow I am going to the capital to submit it. It seems large and looming that I have all the papers and to be honest I am paralyzed with a combination of overwhelmedness and apathy... odd huh...
My housemate is out galavanting around the town on some pseudo missions to build and maintain contact with people and friends alike.
The house is clean and the washing done so I don't have anything to distract myself with... 'cept informing you my dear readers. So. Off to the Kitchen and a strong coffee and start that damn make or break application!
