We had the whole gamut. (theres a 5 zlot word for ya)...> Glacial winds with freezing rain early in the week.. now it's like 60 and not a cloud in the sky. I broke my umbrella,> Some Larrys were giving me a hard time so i wound up and... actually to be perfectly honest the wind broke it..> cheapo mens warehouse ... so its kind of a bummer for me cuz i have to use it. So im going around with a jacked> umbrella and people are passing me on the street laughing at me. Better then getting spit at i guess. I sort of forgot> my overcoat in Wroclaw. Like.. eh.. alright i forgot it on purpose. I didnt really have room for it and I figured that I'd> be going back down for my legal work (which i still am.. sometime) so im running around in my suit coats and a half broken> umbrella. Now that the suns out its no worries.> So the investigator pool in gdnyia is somewhat nonexistent currently. We had a ton of setups this week but only one actually> went down with this guy named Leszek. And all that ended up happening was we talked about geography, he made fun of> my Polish and corrected everything I said, and then he played us at chess, 2 simultaneous games. He beat us both, but ill> have you know i held my own for a while... i still claim its cause everything on the board was in Polish, wat a bully face.> > It was dzien kobiet this week, basically women's day. Im not sure why women in Poland have a day dedicated to them> every month of the year. So basically it was valentines day all over again with the flowers and pda all over the place> yep, lots of funnnn. Errington and I walked around the city of gdynia a few hundred times this week. I'm starting to see people> I've already contacted .. Errington is already on a first name basis with half the city. Ive gotten some good practice contacting> trains because we spend alot of time to and from Gdansk. Same old story with Poles talking about me right in front of me> because they dont think i speak polish.. then i freak them out way bad when i start talking to them haha its way funny.> I got a lot of people smiling this week which is always oen of my goals when im out talking with people. They're such> closed people to strangers, once you make them laugh and get their trust they actually start talking! fancy that...So ive been slaving away> during language study to incorporate my personality a little more into the language.. i got some good one liners im rocking now.> > Yesterday i gave my talk and it went pretty well actually. Hopefully i didnt accidentally dirt-ify the doctrine of the church.> We'll see if we still have members coming next week...> > Zone conference is this week Thurs-Sat i think. It's down and Warsaw so im pretty elated. Then Pres. mmm> presidenttttt flip.. wats his name... ahh Kapische? hes the first counselor in the Area Presidency in Europe.> Anywho he's coming to the Gdansk branch this Sunday along with Pres. Engbjerg and his wife. So it's going to be> an intense weekend. I'm loking forward to it but at the same time i hope it isnt a repeat of Wondra.> > My companion rocks socks. I get along a lot better with him than i did with Duty. I have some pictures but once again> the computer is way too old. So that is kinda whats going down... nothing too intense, i could go on about> how much i love the catholic church again but i wont.
