"Somebody get a can opener. I've got a god stuck in my head."

Finished The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan (of Percy Jackson and the Olympians fame.) Similar setup to the Percy Jackson books, only this time he tackles Egyptian mythology. Fun, and worth reading if only for the quote in the subject line and Anubis, though the story as a whole works well. I roll better on my "recognize mythology" for Egyptian than I do, say, Hindu, where I barely remember the names of the gods, or Aztec, where I can't even pronounce the names of the gods. But I don't know it skin-deep the way I do Greek, so I know there were a bunch of in jokes I missed. But it was still fun nonetheless.
