"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

13 Days of Halloween - Quoth the Raven, Nevermore!
Since I'm busy with all my crafts and assorted errands in preparation for all the Halloween activities this week, I'm going to keep this post short and sweet tonight, (or should I say short and creepy?). I love Edgar Allan Poe - he was an innovator of poetry and the mystery/thriller genre. He was an amazing, albeit tortured, author. I don't have the words or the time to go into it here (maybe another post for another time?). I also love Vincent Price. I could listen to him read the phone book. He has a beautiful, eloquent and yet sinister voice. And his films will also take a rightful place in horror movie history. So combine the two together...ah... pure genius!
And yes, that picture above is me dressed as a raven from Halloween a couple years ago. I went around quoting "The Raven" all day (and probably driving everyone in my office nuts).
