Training Up Phil in the Way He Should Go
He's going to the Movie and Photo sessions. (Check availability in a store near you.)
Four New Visiting Countries
- Armenia stopped by to see a traffic spike graph from Oct. 2005.
- Bhutan wanted to see some bowling scores from Jan. '06.
- Kyrgyzstan came for the old Phil-being-"eaten"-by-the-shark pic.
- And today Belize took time out of its busy schedule for this classic Phil haircut shot.
Now at 136 countries / 61% of the world (as World66 figures things).

That's when a check arrived from CP for the "Jesus Loves You / Deal With It" merchandise that's been selling at the rate of one or two per month (seven sold last Christmas!). Woo hoo!
Get one (or two or seven) yourownbadself before the trend explodes.

More Audiobooks To Commute To
- The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King.
I've read the novel. Let's see if Anne Heche can do as good a job (or better).
- The Glass Key by Dashiell Hammett.
I've heard good things.
- Murder and Obsession, Vol. 1 edited by Otto Penzler.
Eight short stories by the likes of Edna Buchanan, Amanda Cross, Dennis Lehane, and others.
Also, looking through my iTunes library, I came on a couple audio recordings I hadn't listened to yet: Comes a Horseman by Robert Liparulo, and Louis L'Amour's "Merrano of the Dry Country ".
After uploading everything to the iPod (and offloading quite a bit) my 30GB hard drive is down to 30MB. Gotta either make more room or listen to the audiobooks quick.

I Feel So Appreciated
Today, in observance of Teacher Appreciation Day, Chipotle gave away free entrees to teachers who showed their IDs at checkout.
Four Chipotle restaurants between school and home.
You do the math.

Books I've Listened to Lately
Diane - Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper
Have gone through a Twin Peaks revival here. Got Season One on DVD at Half Price for $15. Picked up the Pilot (with European "ending") on VHS for $3. And this for a buck. Not as fine as a slice of cherry pie at the Double-R, but much better than Nadine Hurley's silent curtain runners.
Not what I was expecting, but still a good listen.
Got the abridged version, so I missed a few of the "crimes," but Edward Herrmann does great voices, so it balanced out in the end.
A short story (uncollected, as far as I know) CD-set I checked out from the library. Quirky King, not terrifying.
Up next: Winter Prey, L.A. Confidential, and Jurassic Park.
