Forgive me for a non technical post but apparently I’ve been tagged by Tess which means I probably need to say 5 things about myself. Hmpf…

Oh well, here it goes:

  1. I can’t eat tomatoes. I can eat them in the form of ketchup and in the form of a sauce (on Italian food, for example), but I simply can’t bare the thought (or taste) of having a raw live tomato in my mouth (yuck!)
  2. I have yet to complete any formal degree from a formal institution what so ever. I’ve finished about 1/3 of a Computer Science degree in the Open University in Israel. I simply figured since I’m already rather proficient in CS I would be better off actually studying something else. I’m still considering Philosophy but haven’t had the time to make it so, mainly because I work full time and the Open University doesn’t have a Philosophy degree (perhaps its time for University 2.0, something that will actually fit people like me 🙂 ).
  3. I learned and/or playing the following musical instruments: Flute, Saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor and Baritone), Guitar (electric, classical, acoustic and bass), Piano (not enough to play Rachmaninoff, but enough to understand the basics and compose music on it), Drums (not too well, but enough to keep a steady beat)
  4. I own a Sea Kayak (an Ocean Kayak Scupper Pro) which I’ve been taking off to sea in the summer (I still haven’t gotten a dry swim suite like the divers have to actually kayak in the winter). It looks rather funny on my car’s roof (a Peugeot 206) since the car is 3.8 meters long and the Kayak is 4.5 meters. I’m starting small. My first goal is that in the Summer of 2007 I’ll Kayak from Hertzliya to Tel Aviv and back (around 30km).
  5. I’m going to be 26 in 17 days (21st of January) but I’m still being referred to as the Kid (or sometimes Wiz Kid) by my co-workers, mainly because I formally started to work in the industry at the age of 16 and I’m still the youngest person at work.

OK, now I need to find 5 other people I wish to tag. I feel kind of sleazy continuing this blogosphere chain letter like effect, but what the heck. Let’s go with the flow.

I’m hereby tag Alex, Shay, Liron, Eran (not me) and Yossi.

  • The Scupper Pro is a nice kayak. I’ve been looking at some models to test out, and see if I’d want to buy one. How is that one working out for you so far?

  • Working out great. Do notice that its a rather big Kayak (4.5meters or so) so having a place to store it is rather crucial 😉
