Merry Polandian Christmas

Apparently there’s some kind of holiday coming up in the next few days, so nothing much will be happening around here (cries of “so no change then” echo around the country). Scatts will no doubt be ensconced in the bosom of his family cheerily illuminated from the glow of his new 57-meter tv, Pawel will be boogieing the holidays away in Torun’s hottest nite spots, and I’ll be in the land of gin and tonic attempting to catch up on a year’s worth of curries, English breakfasts, and battered cod.

News of this temporary hiatus leaked out early yesterday and crowds descended on parliament to voice their outrage


Have a damnably merry Christmas everybody, and a stupendous New Year.

    Wat, no posts? I might pop in, especially if something strikes me as being especially postworthy – like a carp with no bones and taste, for example. Otherwise we’ll be sat in front of the wall mounted solarium watching Shrek 3 and Mama Mia. ;)

    Addiction, it’s tough.

    Wesołych Swiąt, Polandiludzie!

    Merry Christmas everyone :) Scatts, can you imagine, that there are places in Poland where people do not eat carp at Christmas Eve?

    Had shrimp scampi tonight, not a fish guy (well, that’s seafood isn’t it?) Wife and her brother and his wife had the traditional: carp, salmon in quivering jelly, trout also drowned in jelly, herring and the usual other culinary wigilia suspects

    Ewa, hard to imagine but I’m sure you’re right! Actually, our carp yesterday was pretty good, as carp goes. As a special treat I’m told we’ll be eating what was left tomorrow!! ;(

    Well, in my friends’ houses the “carp” was: salmon in one, panga in the second, trout in the third…

    It was sola before WWII. Carp was just a substitute for the dark fishless era of communism.

    I tried one more piece of carp today. This one was tasteless and every mouthful contained more bones than Powązki. I’m hoping this is the last year we’ll see that evil ryba.

    Carp, like Americans, is only tolerable in very small doses for very short periods of time.
