Three things in life are certain: death, taxes, and comments about Enigma under my articles. Like death and taxes, there is nothing I can do to prevent comments about Enigma. I could exercise 12 hours per day and never do a stroke of paid work, and I would still die and be taxed. I could write about... .
The Poles are an inventive bunch, and I've written before about inventions you would never have guessed were Polish (bulletproof vests, space travel, the oil industry, etc.), but I only just discovered that it was a Pole who made YouTube possible. .
I'm not good at washing up. Rather, I'm quite good at actually cleaning dishes and cutlery, but I'm not good at performing this activity on a regular basis. Left on my own, it wouldn't be long before I was eating spaghetti directly from a saucepan using my credit card. .

I don't know what I've done to offend my spine, but it seems determined to ruin my life. Most parts of my body are happy to cooperate with my brain's wishes in the pursuit of fun. "Hey," says brain "let's go drink beer until we have no more money!" Legs and liver roll their eyes in mock exasperation... .
I note with interest my fellow WP columnist Piotr Gabryel's assertion that 40 percent of Poles accept nepotism. It isn't clear if this 40 percent are related to each other, but I think it's safe to assume they are. I have decided to embrace this fashion wholeheartedly – 40 percent is good... .
Happy birthday Pawel! And you Basia! Statistics suggest I just surprised the hell out of eight thousand people who thought I was talking directly to them. Never mind, I still wish you a happy birthday Pawel and Basia, whoever you are, but that's all your going to get. The English method of birthday... .

I promised not to get sucked into the black hole of Euro 2012 hysteria, but its gravity has proved irresistible. As a conscientiousness observer of all things Polish, I am obliged to watch the British media for any mention of the key phrases 'Poland,' 'Euro 2012' and 'OH MY GOD!' .
