I did my best to celebrate the birthday of Thomas Pynchon. But here around Rotterdam I may have been the only one reading a Pynchon book. In The Hague I met one other Pynchonite, but he was a colleague. We had the same book. But mine was an older edition.
And I also quoted Mason&Dixon in one blog post: http://uair01.blogspot.nl/2012/09/sheep.html
