 he would not expect us to believe in him”. And of course she didn't buy
 an artificial division of him into three parts, even if she believed he
 exists. And so she went on her way to work on Monday, on what seemed like

 Rachel did not admit it a lot, but Monday was her favourite day of the

 A graphic artist such as Rachel, could not afford herself to lose a
 single moment from that precious day which is known as Monday. In order
 to manuever between four different software applications (Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photosop, Corel-Draw and GIMP) on what was in her own
 words “that excuse for an operating system also known as Windows 98”
-required a large amoung of patience and tolerance. Rachel had a severe lack of those qualities, but she actualy loved doing graphics work. However, at her home, she had many T-shirts with that

 perhaps-Penguin-perhaps-Duck, to signify her hope for better days.
 
 Anyway, that day, Rachel was able to catch an early bus, and reached her
 some fruit tea to start the day on the right foot. Therefore, she walked
 to the kitchen. A few of her colleaugues were at the kitchen discussing what seemed like the event that took place the day before.
 
-“Well, in my opinion, Cardinal Averus has the best chances of being voted as the new pope.” said Adam Grinsky, who was another graphic artist who worked in the company.

 “I'm not sure about it.” said Eva Hallworth, who was an accountant.
 “When the late Pope was elected, most people thought his chances of getting elected were minimal.”
 
-Rachel went to prepare some Almond tea, and activated the electrical computer, even though she was almost certain it had enough warm water.

 “Ah, Rachel, ”, Adam told her, “who do you think will be elected as
 the new Pope?”
 “It doesn’t.” said Rachel, as she lifted her cup of tea. “It really
 really doesn't.”
 
-רייצ'ל ניגשה למחשב שלה, והתחילה לעבוד עליו. הייתה לה תמונה שהייתה
-צריכה לגמור ב-Illustrator אבל באותו זמן גם קראה את ה-E-mail שלה.
+Rachel went to her computer, and started working on it. She had a
+picture she had to finish in Illustrator, but at the same time also
+read her E-mail.
 
-לא עבר זמן רב, וניגש אליה אלקס רודמן, נער צעיר, שהחליט לעבוד לפני
-שהתחיל ללמוד באוניברסיטה („אם בכלל“, כדבריו). הוא היה אחד מאנשי ה-System
-ורייצ'ל מצאה את זה מאוד נוח להטיל עליו מטלות מזדמנות.
+It didn’t take too long, and Alex Rodman, a young man, who decided to
+work before starting to learn in the University (“If at all” as he
+said). He was one of the system administration people, and Rachel found it convenient to delegate some tasks for him to do.
 
-„גמרתי לכתוב את התסריט שביקשת ממני.“
+"I finished writing the script you asked me to write for you." Alex told her.
 
-„אלקס, “ השיבה רייצ'ל כשהיא אינה מזיזה את עיניה מהמחשב, „אתה מתוק
-לאללה.“
+"Alex, " answered Rachel, while not lifting her eyes from the computer,
+"You are incredibly sweet."
 
-„אילו רק הדייטים שלי היו אומרות דבר כזה...“
+“If only my dates would say that…”
 
-„האמן לי שהן עוד יגידו לך את זה. בכל מקרה, מה האורך שלו.“
+“They eventually will tell you that - believe me. Anyway, how long is the script?”
 
-„אני לא יודע.100, 200 שורות.“
+“I don’t know. 100, 200 lines.”
 
-„ובכמה grepים, sortים, mapים ו-joinים השתמשת?“
+“And in how many greps, sorts, maps and joins have you used?”
 
-„יותר מידי.“
+“‎Too many, heh.”
 
-„טוב, שיהיה. תודה בכל מקרה. על כל פנים, אני שנאתי ליספ כשלמדתי
-באוניברסיטה ולדעתי פרל ירשה אחדים מהמאפיינים הפחות חביבים שלה.“
+“Well, whatever. Thanks anyway. Anyway, I hated Lisp when I studied in
+college, and, in my opinion,  Perl inherited a few of its features
+that I like the least.”
 
-„אם כך לא תשמחי לשמוח שהשתמשתי ב-eval כדי להדר קצת קוד בזמן
-ריצה.“
+“Then you won’t be happy to learn that I used eval to compile some code
+at run-time.”
 
-„אוי לא!“ אמרה רייצ'ל כשהיא שמה את כפות ידיה על הפנים שלה, „מדוע היית
-צריך לעשות דבר כזה? נראה לי שהיעוד שלך הוא להיות מתכנת LISP או
-Scheme.“
+“Oh no!” Rachel said, while putting her face in her palms, “Why did
+you have to do such a thing? I think your destiny is to be a Lisp or
+Scheme programmer.”
 
-„את רוצה שאני אכתוב את התוכנית בצורה שיותר דומה ל-C?“
+”Do you want me to write the program in a more C-like manner?”
 
-„לא, לא חשוב. 'אם זה עובד - אל תיגע בזה'. אין לי מושג מדוע לארי וו'אל
-החליט שאפשר יהיה לכתוב ב-Perl קוד שדומה לכל שפה אחרת. אני אישית הייתי
-שמחה אם זה היה פשוט C עם מחרוזות באורך בלתי מוגבל שיכולות להכיל כל
-תו…“
+“No, never mind. ‘If it is working - don’t touch'. I don’t know why
+Larry Wall decided that in Perl, it should be possible to write code
+that is similar to every other language. I personally would be happy
+if it was just C with unlimited strings that can contain every character…”
 
-„ביטויים רגולרים“ אמר אלקס.
+“Regular expressions” said Alex.
 
-„כן, מערכים באורך בלתי מוגבל, וכל הדברים השפויים האחרים.“
+“Yes, arbitrary sized arrays, and all the other sane stuff.”
 
-„אני דווקא חושב שזה מגניב שאפשר לעשות למבדה קלקולוס ב-Perl.
+“I happen to think it is nifty that you can do Lambda Calculus in Perl.
 
-„לידיעתך, אפשר לעשות את זה גם ב-C.
+“For your information, one can also do it in C.
 
-„באמת, איך?“
+“Really, how?”
 
-„משהו עם מחסנית - אני לא זוכרת את הפרטים המדויקים כי מעולם לא התעמקתי
-בזה, וזה היה הדבר הראשון ששכחתי אחרי שלקחתי את הקורס. מה שכן, ראיתי
-מישהו שהשתמש בזה ב-C.“
+“Something to do with a stack — I do not remember the exact details
+because I did not focus on it too much, and it was the first thing
+that I forgot after I took the course. However, one of my co-students
+used it in C.”
 
-„באמת, איך היה הקוד שלו?“
+“Really, how was his code?”
 
-„הלמבדה קלקולוס היה יפהפה.“
+“The Lambda Calculus was beautiful.”
 
-„ואיך היה הקוד בתור תוכנית ב-C?“
+“And how was it as a C program?”
 
-„לגמרי לא מובן. בסוף שכנעתי אותו להמיר את זה לקוד סטנדרטי של C. טוב,
-אני חושבת שכדאי שאתחיל לעבוד קצת, אני כבר אסתדר עם הסקריפט
-שכתבת.“
+“Completely illegible. Eventually, I convinced him to convert it
+to standard C code. Well, I think I should start working a little,
+and I will already try to handle the script you wrote, on my own.”
 
-„בסדר, להתראות!“
+“OK, farewell!” said Alex.
 
-„ביי,“ אמרה רייצ'ל וחזרה לעבודתה.
+“Bye,” Rachel said and went back to work.
 
 רייצ'ל הספיקה לגמור את התמונה עד לשעה 11:00, ומאז עד ארוחת צהריים
 הסתובבה בנסיון לקבל עבורה משוב מחבריה לעבודה. זה לא היה פשוט, משום שלכל
