Cheerio. I'm in London. And as usual, it's grey, cloudy, and gloomy. But there are plenty of Boots, Marks & Sparks, double-decker buses, and red phone booths to cheer me up. Just got to my hotel, gonna pass out a bit and let my brain rest for a few hours. The 2011 UK Memory Open starts tomorrow and boy am I stoked. I haven't competed internationally since May 2010. A lot of you may not know, but even though I may be the best memorizer in the US, I ain't diddley-squat on the international circuit. I think at the moment I am ranked 101 in the world. Sucks.

But not for long. The goal is to boost that into the top 30 or even top 20 in the world. I feel like I can do it.

For now though, zzzzzzzz.
