My Only Halloween Decoration
I've always liked Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven", for it's weird creepiness and sad romance. I put it in Wordle, printed, and framed it. It's now in my kitchen lending some sombreness to the otherwise light-hearted and summery room. The shelf needs something more, but I'm not sure what. Other than the pumpkins we'll carve in a couple of weeks, this will likely be my only slightly-halloweenish decoration. When KD saw it, he said "What's with the raven?" I said "I like it". And that was that. JK was helping me clean the house yesterday, and evidently enjoyed it. I love that happy look on her face. My essay is finally done--which is good, because I have to leave for school in less than an hour. I'm just proofreading it now, then I'll print it and email a copy to my instructor as required. I'm so glad it's done! Give me a multiple-choice exam over an essay any day.
