Jon Carroll quotes Guess The Verb!. And it's not a quote published (to my knowledge) anywhere else, which means that he's actually played the game. Mike has also quoted Dr. Prugrave, so this makes him my most-quoted fictional character of all time. Unfortunately, he's too mad to appreciate the honor. (Thanks to Sumana, who noticed this)

At Pea Soup Andersen's. Capsule reviews of music so far:
- Oy To The World!: Fun, pretty much what you'd expect (though I didn't expect the surf music break in Little Drummer Boy).
- There Is Nothing Left To Lose, by the Foo Fighters. Starts out rockin', then gets bogged down in boring ballads (though some of the ballads are good, and some of the bad ones have good lines). What happened, Dave?
- Action Packed: The Best Of Jonathan Richman: A Kevin recommendation. Fun, peppy gospel-tinged rock songs. I don't like Jonathan's singing voice, but the songs are well-written and enjoyable.
Well, I've got some food in me, so it's back on the road.

At rest area, almost home. Just finished Songs For The Deaf, which created a nice ominous atmosphere; I expected to see lightning in the distance and the clouds zooming over my head at time-lapse speeds.
