Haven’t written on here for several years (3 and a half by my count) so let’s start with a brief summary of what we’ve missed (mainly death) My beloved cat Cleo kicked the bucket, only 2o years young. Watched her have a “neurological event” drove her to the vet and watched her being slid around the back sit of a Ford Ka on her way to be executed. A fitting end to 20 years of companionship and love, “Shall we put her down” “yea do it” cold, less hassle than cleaning up the mess of an increasingly incontinent friend though. I would ask that you do the same for me. OK enough cat. My grandad also passed away, a real person, had a good innings though and was also neurologically challenged so it gave him some much needed peace! Had a few relationships die on me but they were euthanised if we are being perfectly honest, sometimes I happened to use a blunt chainsaw though.
Went from crippled and unable to walk, moved back to Krakow to live in my own place finally. Went off the rails a little and probably drank too much. (DEFINITELY drank too much)
Became increasingly more mentally invested in finance, economics and eventually politics. Made a thousand easy quids on trump trades, education in these areas led me to become more disenchanted with the wonders of capitalism* but did help me reconsider the things that I value (still a work in progress)
Travelled here and there, most recently Georgia (absolutely beautiful and fantastic country) with my new gf (A young Ukrainian lady with an exceptional attitude to most things, apart from the old eastern traditions of marriage :D)
Put on some timber, now a whopping 103kg. It’s the medicine and nothing you can say will change my mind.
This isn’t a great summary, there have been some very meaningful (meaningful in the most cynical sense of the word possible, in this very brief moment in time as a dot on a rock in infinity) quite meaningfulish adventures and lost loves etc which at the time were all rather bloody intense and consuming. But I didn’t right them down and I won’t be living them again so it’s almost as if they never happened.
Back by popular (2 people – Hi Sue and Baz) demand it’s my very generic blog. I should really be doing youtube videos but there is something therapeutic about tapping.
