I Love New Words
I heard a new word today -
Frenemy - NOUN - They are the people you don't like and are threatened by, that you pretend to like and keep them close so you can keep an eye on them.
I like it! - Obi
Streets of your town...

Holidays are over...
I consider now that my holiday is at an end. this malaise of time in seclusion is at an end, but not without its gift and detriments.
I will have to arrange my time now so that I can be more efficient. Shed the unnecessary and then the unneeded.The people in this town have shown me that there is no place for me here and I am and will always bee an outsider, no matter how positively I contribute to the lives of others, no matter how much I conform. So I say fuck em. I will be counting down the days of my contract, I will be avoiding all contact with people other than within my work time. I will not work over time I will not work for free and I will not cover the work of others.
I have stopped going to the local bar and associating with the people I knew there. I am not their friend, no matter how much I worked at becoming that. My focus and my target is now to do as little as I am required to do and to make plans for the future out of this little small minded town.
I got no rejuvenation from rest or a relaxing holiday as I had hoped for, all my holiday plans went down the toilet. So I will have to use my anger and utter determination not to be consumed by this situation.
What did Public Image Limited say in their song?? "Anger is an energy!" - Obi is in a filthy mood.

Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, cloning… The very meaning of the word “humanity” changes daily in the modern world. But there is a darker side to the evolution of mankind, a truth only a few brave souls are willing to face:
There are monsters loose in the world. And they are the key to the future of our race.
Each webisode of Sanctuary follows the exploits of Dr. Helen Magnus (AMANDA TAPPING, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis) as she seeks out all manner of terrifying and monstrous creatures. She is aided in her quest by her reluctant protégé Will Zimmerman (ROBIN DUNNE, Dawson’s Creek, The Big Hit, Species 3) and her intrepid, if somewhat reckless daughter Ashley (EMILIE ULLERUP, Battlestar Galactica). Together they will be drawn into a frightening and mysterious world populated by beings that defy explanation.
Fusing stunning visual effects, Sanctuary takes the viewer into a thrilling world where science meets the supernatural. This fictional online universe fills the void left by traditional network television by providing multiple High Definition resolutions, immersive interaction, and direct communication between the viewer and the Sanctuary creative team.
We feature world class talent, including creature effects by Emmy Award winner Todd Masters (Six Feet Under, Star Trek - First Contact), executive producers Martin Wood, John Smith, and Damian Kindler (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis), game executive Marc Aubanel (FIFA Soccer, Need for Speed, Marvel Nemesis), online designer John Kalangis, and computer graphics designer Ron Martin. Add to this an internationally recognizable cast, these web broadcasts will be the highest quality and most technically advanced filmed content ever developed for the Internet.
- Firstly I will have to start preparing classes for the courses I am 'possibly' going to be starting. as well as all the standard courses I have in the EU project.
- Secondly I will have to start boxing things up and getting ready to move. I have to think about finding a much smaller and cheaper apartment. this place is like the grand hall at The summer palace in St.Petersburg! I am collecting boxes here and there from the supermarket and I am making sure I am cleaning and mopping every other day and scrubbing etc.
- Thirdly my parents will be arriving in the next 3 weeks. So I will go to Warsaw and spend a few days with them and bring them back to my town and have some fun etc.
- Fourthly I will have to start budgeting and arranging my time and energies so that I can extricate myself from this small town in Poland quite quickly at the end of my contract in February.

Eternal Sunshine of a spotless mind
The next morning he impulsively misses work and goes to the beach where they met and the both meet again, as strangers
The story is about all the memories he shares of her and how they slip though his fingers and how he fights against the process while unconscious.
In my opinion memories of relationships in success or failure make up who we are. All the bad memories as well as the good ones.

Polly is an interesting gal. Rather chatty and verbose, helpful and supportive and quite hooked on Obi's website. Seems that the farcical and ridiculous nature of my life appeals to her and her morning cappuccino at he great desk of power.
Polly is stylish and in the know about the gossip in the world, (is it still gossip if you know no one in the stories told to you, or is it delightful distraction?). Polly is a great cook and an excellent shopper. She works hard and saves time to play for strategic enjoyment, a bird in the hand so to speak...
Anyway, I digress. Polly has been rather helpful to me in distracting me from the current morbidity of my life and helps me entertain loftier goals like : happiness, joy and the art of a good caffinatory experience.
Why is she called Polly? Poly means many and Polly has many talents, most of which are talking but nonetheless important!
So Helloooo Polly yes helloooooo Polly... (singing off into a Broadway tune...)
Obi - Still at home and bunkering in..

My friends in Aberdeen are now busy and I can't go to see them. I had wanted to go to an English speaking country and see some friends and just enjoy the days as they pass...
Now I am stuck, I have wracked my brains for days and I can't figure out where I can go and see friends. all the people i think of are on holidays also...
So what a reality to be faced with. I have nowhere to go. Tho in years to come I will kick myself for not doing more but all I really want to do is be with friends and speak English freely.
too much to ask for - Obi
