Lovecraftian

Miscellany

Just a few quick items of interest for today...

* The home that inspired H.P. Lovecraft's story "The Shunned House" is for sale. And me without a spare million dollars! The realty page has some great interior photos, FYI. (None, of course, of the dreaded basement. *wink*) I have some additional photos of the house here in my photo tour of Lovecraftian Providence.

* Other Lovecraftian goodness (thanks to wellinghall!):
-- Lovecraftian lollipops
-- Chocolate Cthulhu idols
-- Lovecraftian maths

* Kudos to those who are finishing the grueling 1,000-mile bike ride retracing the "Trail of Tears." The "Remember The Removal" bike ride comes full circle later this week with the team's return to Tahlequah, Oklahoma: Remember the Removal.

* We have less than to days to wait until J.K. Rowling's "Pottermore" announcement!

* Happy birthday to the fantastic belleferret, and happy early birthday wishes to alex_beecroft, nurdbunny, lisa_marli, and graashoppa! May all of you enjoy many happy returns of the day.
