Ready Player One – April 2015

May 18, 2015 in recap

Whew! Here we are again, in the shadow of next month’s book club, writing last month’s recap. Well, we’re consistent at least!

Let’s see. Book club for April was at my (Jen) house. We had lots to talk about since it was in the midst of wedding planning and we hadn’t seen each other in awhile. Sarah made an appetizer that I remember I really liked but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was. Des brought strawberries. And… something? I also had food available. Yes, this is the worst recap ever. Wait! I made spinach and turkey meatballs, in a sauce of some kind. I remember people liked it and Des ate green stuff. That’s all I got.

After dinner we discussed the book. Des and Sarah both said they enjoyed it even though they’re not quite “children of the 80’s.” They haven’t see ‘Wargames’ or played many of the games from the book, but they still found it fun after it got going (was a little slow to start). They also liked several of the gamer characters, especially ‘H’, and the Steve Woz-like guardian overseeing their attempts to beat the “game.” Anyway, at least they found it entertaining.

We didn’t have too much in the current events so we mainly talked about teaching, looked at a very cool school for inner-city kids that was breaking the mold, considered Gilmore Girl quotes, and got a teeny bit excited about the fact that Spielberg may direct the “Ready Player One” movie. Then we watched movie trailers.

I know, I am a truly awful person and this is not only an late and incomplete recap, it’s also exceptionally boring. What can I say. It was an uneventful night, but awesome for the fact that I got to hang out with my two best friends and relax. Three cheers for book club!
