Awww, I got a valentine


It is acceptable. I shall hush the chitterings of unseen chitinous creatures in the shadows beneath the giver’s home tonight; there will be an absence of strangely glutinous slitherings over their windowpanes; the unspeakable colors will cease flickering on the edge of their vision, as the malign influence of the Old Ones temporarily recede.

Just for tonight. One night of respite. We will resume tomorrow.

    What if they’re serving calamari for dinner?

    Happy Valentines Day, Horde. You are all awesome. Even if you hate Valentines Day.

    I hate V-Day but if I’d ever got one of these I would have liked it much better. :-)

    These cards are perfect, too.

    Heart: it’s what you eat first.

    Heh, this morning I was listening to HPLHS’s new “Dark Adventure Radio Theater” version of The Call of Cthulhu. I was impressed that the gave the story a new spin rather then just attempted to do an audio version of their earlier silent film. Just yesterday I contributed to a Kickstater for a new Mythos/WW2 mashup RPG setting.

    While Lovecraft may still be a “geek” thing, I think it’s safe to say that he won’t be sinking back into eye obscurity anytime soon.

    His wings are there, they are just folded. He is coming out of a cave (Temple? Multidimensional polyhedron?) This has always been my favorite picture of Cthulhu. I once tried to track down the artist to try and get a copy of original.

    Happy Velociraptor Day, fellow Hordelings!

    I normally don’t like Valentines Day, but this is fucking brilliant.

    I saw some shiny Firefly V-day cards on bookface. Rather liked them. My wife and I enjoy the schmaltz (is that the right word?) of V-day.
