Well, I haven't posted in a long time. The main reason being that I started a new job in Warsaw and it's eaten up pretty much all the free time I've had. I still teach English and try to get out (I saw a pretty insane chicken show. Yes, a chicken show. They had so many awesome chicken, you'd be amazed. Those fighting cocks looked like they could take down a doberman, plus there were some exotic chickens that looked more like birds of paradise than anything else. It may sound hickish and lame, but it was actually pretty interesting.)
Spring has come to Warsaw. It came at the end of February, and March has been one long balmy holiday. It did snow last night, so it looks like winter might still be grasping. Basically, winter disappeared right before Christmas, which sucked. The end of November and December were fairy-tale white with snow. The rest of winter was slushy, muddy, but had a surprising amount of sunny days.
I also think that The Social Network was robbed blind at the Oscars. I mean, The King's Speech was an OK movie, (I'm not going to shit on it), but let's get real here: The Social Network had far better directing and was a far better movie. Stupid period pieces.

More to come.
