I give myself gifts for my birthday.
Not just random stuff I happen to want – I give myself gifts meant to be of use in the future I want for myself.
In 2010 I got myself a suitcase (a yellow one %), less than a year later I landed on a job with ASUS that made frequent travel a reality.
For year 2012 I treated myself to a trip to Moscow on a day of my birthday – to see one of my favourite bands in concert.
And yes, that’s a hint if ever there was one (using the occasion: thanks to whoever processed my wish up there, guys ;)
Weather changed for worse in the evening, so all attendees of Ahmad Tea Fest were provided with plastic raincoats.
White ones, with spiky hoods… It made crowd look like a very strange Ku-Klux-Klan kadre: peaceful, cheerful, with tendency to lounge on grass, blow bubbles.
Surreal sight to say the least.
When I was a boy, Soviet Union was portrayed as THEM in our press and media. And I never thought that I’d visit Moscow one day… I’m here now. And I’m diggin’ these outfits. But you DO LOOK like THEM”.
John Bramwell (of I Am Kloot)
Over the evening listeners were also compared to ghosts or just possibly angels.
