Wits was wonderful. One of the most fun evenings I've had in a long time. Josh Ritter is an astonishing performer (make sure you watch his final song, right at the very end). Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy were hilarious as they judged us from up in the balcony. Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage were the best possible phone guests. And I had a Brass Band backing me, courtesy of music director John Munson. And John Moe stopped the whole mad thing from spinning off into space.

I read a bit of American Gods. I read a poem. I sang a song. I sang a verse of the final chorus. I took part in two quizzes, two interrogations of phone guests, and at least one interview.

You can see the whole thing here:

(Edit - For some reason the embedded video was just giving a "this is blocked" message. Which is a bit irritating. I've taken it out and put a link in instead.)
