So, if someone would have shown me in 1987 that:

  • At eleven in the night I am sitting in rotating chair in front of my own computer.
  • Internet links me with all outside world
  • Panorama of some night town in Israel under my window
  • Writing something in English, watching some TV series in English
  • Knowing some Hebrew too
  • Table full of strange electronic gadgets, phone, cell-phone...
  • Seal of my own start-up company on the top of scanner on the right
  • Databases of two other projects in the computer
  • My library mostly in the computer
  • Esher's biography and full catalog on nearby bookshelf
  • Air conditioner on the wall above me
  • Little souvenir sword from Toledo - gift of a friend on the table near computer mouse.
  • Electric kettle,teabags, tasty little things in the fridge
  • Yeah, and I do not share the apartment with parents or roommates
  • Yeah, and I have microwave oven (would have had to explain me what it is...)
  • Yeah, and I have driving license
  • Yeah...

The twenty years younger me would have said "cool" (or, rather, something similar in Russian - he didn't know what "cool" means yet).

So why I am so not cool if so many nice things are around?

*chuckles*

Life is a bitch.
