EGGMAN
Yet another instance of my iPod's random/shuffle play mode intersecting with my real-life surroundings:

As I pull out of my office parking lot this afternoon, I spy a car parked in the next row over, with a Florida license plate that reads "EGG MAN".

Strange enough. But then, I start up my iPod for the drive home, and what tune cues up? That's right: The Beastie Boys' "Eggman", off the Paul's Boutique album. It seems like forever since the last time that track loaded up.

I couldn't make this kind of stuff up. So I don't even try.
