Currently Reading...

I'm currently reading 'The Da Vinci Code' by Dan Brown.

I had been wondering what all the.....commotion about the book was all about, so I decided to read it.

When I told my wife that I was thinking about buying the book, she immediately said YES, BUY IT! - it turns out that she wants to read it too so I'm plowing through it quickly when I go to dialysis.

I should be done with it by next week - I'll try to form a decent review of the book.....so far, it's interesting, specifically the interesting math/number facts involved in the history/back-story involving Da Vinci.

UPDATE: Just finished the book yesterday at dialysis.

Over all, I thought it was an entertaining novel; I especially liked the cryptological aspects of the story. Of course, it's the geek in me.

The ending of the story wasn't quite what I thought it would be, but it was still a 'page-turner'.

UPDATE II / ADDED TWIST: I was contacted by a reporter from the San Diego Union-Tribune - she wanted to interview me about what I thought of the book.

I'll keep my eyes open for the article and try to post a link to the article when it appears.....

I Got Nothing

Nothing much happening lately.

Studying for my first midterm on Friday.

Getting annoyed with Mozilla Firefox because the latest update locks up my computer.

About Me

Who is Mikey?

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.

He's also a husband, a father, a former Independent/Democrat and is currently dealing with dialysis and getting on the national kidney transplant list.

The words written here are his opinions and his observations on the stupid things in life. If you do not like them or do not agree with them: tough squishies. In America, you're entitled to Freedom of Speech not Freedom to Not Be Offended.

Help Mikey by not being part of the problem and instead, be part of the solution so that he doesn't have to comment on your sorry actions.
