For the hardcore lifestyle lolita, how about some gold-plated food?
Something every middle-grade author ought to prepare themselves for, I suppose! PBS’s Nova has an online collection of angry letters sent to the American Museum of Natural History by third graders in response to the news that Pluto was no longer considered a planet.
Aw, sad planets!
Via Literaticat on twitter, I’ve been introduced to Polidori Chocolates, purveyors of artisan marshmallows and Lovecraft-themed truffles. Personally, I’m down with anybody who name-drops the original The Vampyre author, especially when they add chocolate to the mix.
In addition to the dastardly Choconomicon, Polidori offers a Gothic Weekend truffle selection and a Seven Deadly Sins (plus one!) set. They’re running a limited-time offer of buy two, get one free if you pick up one of each of the truffle collections, and a similar three-for-the-price-of-four deal on artisan marshmallows, although the site doesn’t say exactly when the deal runs out. Might be just the thing for our next evening of Arkham Horror!
What a marvelous piece of editing.
Many thanks to the Council of Metal for bringing this to my attention.
(Yes, I’ve been posting a lot of video clips lately. Not sure what’s going on with that, but I’ll try to trim back. This was just a bit too good to resist.)
