Every time I see a flash drive price drop, I think to back in the 80's when my dad's work bought him a 20Meg hard drive for about two grand. I thought to myself: wait- you can do that? I thought everything thing had to be on floppies! Ah, the innocence of youth...

Anyway, I finished the book "Ready Player One" last week. My one sentence review: "If you were a geek growing up in the 80's, this is your dystopian wet dream." Since I was a geek growing up in the 80's, I loved it.  Extra awesomeness having Will Wheaton as the narrator... this is definitely in the running as my favorite of the year.

Speaking of running, it's getting back on track. After the big race, I had a couple of weeks of two miles/week, then three of 20 mpw, and last week was ~25. I'm nostalgic for 40-60, because that's the miles at which I feel most happy. Or least stressed.

School is getting significantly more challenging, but I'm rising to it. I think. It's amazing how much more time I have for it since I'm not spending nearly as much time running as I'm used to, and I'm averaging about five hours of sleep per day. You'd think that with having 10 days off for Thanksgiving, my body would let itself relax enough to sleep in a little, but no such luck.

Okay, back to the books. Hope everyone has a wonderful thanksgiving week!
