Revised #introduction to reflect the state of my languages. 😋
I'm an amateur classical #pianist. Started learning properly at 34 and still going strong. Love Frédéric #Chopin. Admire Arthur #Rubinstein and Emil #Gilels, and am trying to model my playing on them (arrogant, I know 😅).
Sometimes I wish that I could've stayed at somewhere around 32-35 years old, and then lived for about hundred years till the end of my life without getting any older. :)
I could've gone places and lived elsewhere, could've met people and fallen in love, and generally enjoyed the life. I would've had time.
It's so sad that people get old. All our society is built around youth, it's turned it into a cult. And it often seems that there is less and less place for you while you're getting older.
I really hate it when a user calls and starts shouting right away.
I get it that you might be experiencing a frustrating problem. But shouting at me will not get it resolved, and will not make me want to help you, either.
Not to mention that I can't troubleshoot anything if all you're doing is screeching and not telling anything about your issue.
Me with my mother, in a weird (and I do mean weird: she doesn't care about classical music) slip to discussing Chopin's Premier Concerto.
Me: "So, you know Emil Gilels..."
She: "Of course I do. He's from my time. But how do *you* know him?!"
Don't you love being casually invalidated by your relatives. :)
Yeah, indeed. How do I know one of the best pianists in history. Who could've thought. *gg*
And that's how it has always been, all my life. She just doesn't care.
Looks like the keyboard for my tablet won't arrive until after the New Year. Arrghh! If only it occurred to me to look at Ali sooner.
Thing is, Logitech has this small keyboard in two layouts. Ugly British with weird buttons and normal American. Guess which one they are selling in Russia. 😠
Not having Russian letters on a keyboard is okay. Not having normal Shift and Enter is not. Logitech, what were you thinking, really.
