Last Sunday I realised one of our priests was wearing a very nice perfume. I commented it to him and he answered: "Do you know when Christ told us to look good when we're fasting? I take it literally."

Most people in the New world probably use the terms interchangeably when speaking about world war 2 without meaning anything polemical by it.  You can probably translate any use of the word there to suite your purpose and be OK.

At the Facebook profile of a priest from an uncanonical EO church (he was OO when I met him one year ago):
  • Visitor: Who is that?
  • Priest: My bishop!
  • Visitor: I don't have one yet haha
  • Priest: You'll get one haha
Dude, what do these vagantes have in mind?

Today I had an epiphany farting loudly on church.

I realised this is what not having control means. Not falling repeatedly on sin.

I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

Blah. Thought I might have some chances for a permanent job. It's good to have a job and the kind of job I'm actually enjoying at times at least but would rather have more secure position. Meh.

I wanted today to buy a new phone and sign a new contract with the operator. so after work (and I had a pretty tiring day) I went the representation. In half an hour I managed to pick the phone I want and the tariff I want, was in the middle of signing papers and then I was told additional documents are needed. "I'm sorry, you can't do that now".

And that's how time is being wasted.

I know the story of a guy who called a TV technician to his house, took him to the backyard, showed him a pool and said: "I got this from suing my phone operator. If you try to fool me, I will make a brick barbecue there."

And today the very same clerk in the compensation gave me the employee's offer: 100 zł discount on the phone and 10 zł discount on the subscription.

Roughly 10% (of the discounted price because it is on sale already). I was offered 1000 zł, paid 900 zł and it costs about 1300 zł in a shop.

Sounds like it would be healthier to pay the full price for phone and contract.

My birthday was yesterday, so I commemorated it with this girl who was born two days apart and we called some friends. It started as a mild gathering and ended up with a guy stabbing another in the arm as a joke (what kind of joke makes you get stitches?). I think we'll do the next one alcohol-free.

It's all about the cigarette sealer.  For a small fee, I can probably get a couple of these sealers in my back alley and send them to anyone if anybody is interested, it's the next big thing.
