Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

The Raven

My Super Bowl Sunday was spent by shopping and watching Liberal Arts (which is basically like a super long episode of How I Met Your Mother) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show! Tim and I actually had a bit of a How I Met Your Mother/ Susan Sarandon movie weekend since we watched Jeff, Who Lives At Home which stars Jason Segel and co-stars Surandon as his mother, and then Liberal Arts was written and directed by Ted Mosby Josh Radnor, and we followed that with Rocky Horror in which Sarandon plays Janet Weiss.

I am so thankful that Tim has no interest in American football. Dudes like that are so hard to find — they’re basically unicorns! Um… I just called my boyfriend a unicorn. o,0

Anyhow, since the team that won the Super Bowl is named after an Edgar Allan Poe poem I thought it would be fun to make an outfit based around Out of Print Clothing’s “The Raven” long-sleeved shirt. And BTW, they’re having a little sale in honor of their 3rd anniversary and for being able to send 440,000 books to various literary causes (yay reading!!!). So until Feb. 7 you can take 20% off your purchase with the code BOOKSFORALL. Now I can finally get that The Great Gatsby pullover I’ve been drooling over for years (that thing has been on every wish list and I still have yet to get it)! 😀

Here are a few versions of “The Raven” recited by Vincent Price and James Earl Jones (he did the narration on The Simpsons one too):

Hope your Monday’s not too dreary (especially if you’re a Niners fan).

Cheers,
