You know you are way too old...

...when you suddenly realise that your first major international memory was twenty bloody years ago. But one shan't complain as it concerns one's favoritest city in the Continent.

But what you should really be reading here and here. An usual suspect here.

That was some year, no? I can never think of '89 without thinking of Appan Menon.

Since you brought up 'way too old', here's something that might not cheer you up: the first item in Beloit College Mindset List (for the Class of 2011).

SB: I know. It was also the last year of my life when I was absolutely certain what I wanted to be when I grew up - a foreign correspondent.

Btw, wasn't there also a woman called Meenakshi Ahmed or something like that?

Abi: Okay, now I am depressed.

Only consolation being the two people who commented on this post - your first international memories is probably Moscow Olympics or something as ancient :)

Ekaterina Szabo : Now there's a pleasant memory!

Cat: Must say I was mightily impressed that you have pleasant memories of gymnasts from when were you were like 3 but then I realised you got your years mixed up. Or your cities. You surely mean LA and not Moscow? :)

Also, I'd have expected you say Navratilova for '84; not some gymnast.

Sports shmorts. The only thing I remember about 1989 is that it was the year of Tracy Chapman's first album.

Cheshire Cat said...

Um, yes, Ekaterina Szabo in la-la land. That should be easy enough to remember...
