From the top

So, it's been a while. Been busy with life. Life is always a problem. I so wish there were save points and cheat codes. Then I'd so rock at life.

I finally got the next part of me Adventure log up HERE.
A much more serious one than the last few. I know, serious, how can that be?

Other than that I've gotten off to a decent start for this years book list/challenge.
As with last year I don't really have a goal but I just want to see how many I read. Last year reached 42, the holy geek number.

Before I list me reads so far I'd like to recommend one of them.

The Rosie Project- by Graeme Simsion

The official summary:
"Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a “wonderful” husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which he approaches all things, Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical—most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.

Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent—and on a quest of her own. She is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don's Wife Project takes a back burner to the Father Project and an unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper."

When my mom recommended it to me, she spoke of how much the main character reminded her of me. Like him, I have Asperger's, though not as deep as him. Much of how he acts and many of his thoughts are very similar to my own. It is probably the best look into the mind and life of someone with Asperger's I've read. My mom has recommended it to a number of people she knows who have family members with the syndrome. And most importantly to my grandmother who is still having trouble understanding what it means to live with Asperger's. I've tried to talk to her in the past about both the difficulties it causes in everyday life and the positives like my intelligence, my ability to learn things quickly, and, for me at least, my creativity.
Apart from that connection, the story is just really fun at times and heart warming at time and blunt(like all things Asperger's are) most of the time. So give it a read if you want something different than your typical man meets woman story.
