Like, he's just this guy, you know?
Listening to so many members of The Committee reminesce tonight, it seems to me that Del Close was, as much as anyone else has ever been, Zaphod Beeblebrox. (There's still the saved post from the day I read Guru, but maybe I'll post it after I'm done reading The Funniest One in the Room.)
Also, today is the day that I spent 2.5 otherwise perfectly usable hours of my day (in two sessions) circling my neighborhood looking for a place to put my car for a while. It included a low-speed pursuit by a parking authority vehicle, and an ultimately unsatisfying 'tuesday space.'
