The following was never published I wrote it back in 2005. I thought I will finish it, but I never did. I think it needs to see the light.
I always tried not to reveal a lot about myself on this blog. But I think this is no longer important. [Mohammed Sameer|http://foolab.org/node/695] tagged me, I have no choice but to get it all out in the open.
!!10 years ago:
14 years old, 3rd year preparatory...
I had to keep the work's LCD projector for two days with me. Watched Taxi Driver with the pink dragon, the Waragi master and the Wesnothian knight. As usual I had to repay my REM debt during the film. But I have a general idea what the film was about.
Yesterday, I was lucky again and had to keep the projector with me. I watched another film, meet the fockers, it was great and everything but...
I displayed a slideshow with the LCD projector of some photos I have. It was a totally different experience.
Today, I decided that I will finish something related to work. Something really important that I suck at*. That I am supposed to have ready by tomorrow morning. So as usual I like keeping my ass warm, watch a movie, do some reading, checking my mail, try out all VOIP applications and did nothing related to the work I should do. I even didn't bother to bring the file from the car downstairs.
Finally, at almost 3am, I decided to get the job done. Only to discover that I left the file at work. How nice.
These holidays, made me aware of how I am totally out of sync with the outside world. I wake up at 12pm to discover that they hanged Saddam. I thought that he was still on trial!
While walking in the streets tonight; I find them deserted, with a sudden drop in population density. More that what is common for Eid; to discover by a phone call, that was probably annoying to the other end, that there is an Ahly vs. Zamalek match. Best thing is that my visit to some TV-glued relatives was brief as I didn't need to waste their football match.
These days, I talk alot about myself and my work. I am sure, I am now trained, after months of sensory deprivation, to think that me and my work are the center of the universe. I would like to apologize for all the people who had to suffer and listen to my narcissistic stories, and which them Happy Eid and a Happy New year.
