However, the current financial hiccup (and I hope it remains a hiccup) is caused almost entirely by the intransigence of a certain segment of the Republican Party and I really can't see my way around being an elitist and calling the people who support that bloc short-sighted and foolish, incapable of understanding the actual consequences of the courses of action they are loudly advocating for on several levels.
I even like French food and films.
So we got that very nice apartment we were looking at, it's in a Polish neighborhood on the boundary between Jackowo and Waclawowo. I learned something new: Hyancinth (the name) in Polish is Jacek. And Adalbert is Wojciech (not directly, but because St Adalbert was also named Wojciech). Signing lease tonight, need to talk to current landlord about arranging moveout and stuff.
Crikey, I have a pile of work to do.
Speaking of cuisine, spaghetti in squid ink sauce. Discuss. http://fxcuisine.com/Default.asp?language=2&Display=116&resolution=low This seems awesome. This is a big city, I am 100% sure I can get squid ink. I wouldn't want to clean the squid myself, I'd rather just buy the squid rings. It's just a hassle that doesn't seem worthwhile.
I was very tired last night, but fiddled with the Chess Tactics Server anyway. It did not go well. I lost 35 rating points to put me at 1500. Fortunately, the CTS ratings don't mean anything at all.
I trained yesterday, but I'm not terribly sore today. This is good. I'm only somewhat sore from squatting. I'm getting reacclimated. I still run out of gas toward the end of the session. The start is always light and fast, though. I'll be back in the swing of things soon.
