Yo, I'm in Paris. Getting free wifi at McDonalds. Waiting for my train to Heilbronn, Germany in 2 hours for the annual German Memory Championships (it starts tomorrow). I ought to get downright destroyed by the competition (7 of the top 10 memorizers in the world are German, just to give you an idea) but it doesn't matter. The reason I'm competiting is to get some more competition practice and to boost my ranking from 38th to hopefully top 25 or 20 in the world. My training has been going pretty sweet over the past few weeks, so I'm hoping it translates over into competition. We'll see. Stay tuned for updates.
