nie dziekuje

when i was in wroclaw last week i noticed that people didn't say thank you very often. they said it in the stores when i bought stuff sometimes, but when my boss bought dinner for like 14 people i don't think any of them said thank you. maybe it's just not common there?

you live and learn (dangit!)

jeg dreit meg ut big time nå =( i currently work in companyA, but am leaving to now work for companyB. my boss owns (parts of) both of them. i was going to work for companyC, but my boss really wanted me to stick around and work for companyB. in companyA, earlier, i had a bonus system in 2005 that said i would get 50% of the bonus paid out immediately and the other 50% would be paid out in 2 years, but if i left the company then any earned bonus from 2 years ago would fall away. i should have taken that into consideration in my contract negotiation for companyB. piss!

celebrity jail cells

She will be separated from the main prison population in a block that contains 12 cells, each holding two people.

It is reserved for celebrities, public officials, police officers and other high-profile inmates.

my comment: wtf? good for me if i'm ever imprisoned and am a celebrity, but in general, it sends a bad message to celebrities eller hur?

flaw in beatles lyric

I will say the only words I know that
you'll understand.

either he's talking about a mentally handicapped person or a baby or something....or he's wrong because i'm sure this michelle girl he's singing to understands many words in her own language and not just "Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble, tres bien ensemble" or the english words "i love you"...
