    And he lived in Baltimore too! I'll have to go visit his place, it's probably about 20 minutes from where I am currently sitting.

    EDIT: I just mapped it, it's 7.3 miles away and 16-20 minutes depending on traffic... Looks like admission is $4. Hmmmm....!!!!!

    I walked there from my hotel when I was in Baltimore.... it was a long walk and looked like a rough neighborhood but I didn't care - this was Poe's house and I didn't know if I were going to get back to Baltimore, hehe. It's very small, and they won't let you go up to the top room which was actually his, but they had quite a nice collection of personal artifacts when I was there.

    The guy who was watching the place was a bit on the eccentric side and wasn't a talker. Several people came through and asked him questions and he just looked at them more or less and they left. I watched people try to talk with him for a while while I looked at the collection. I tried a few questions of a different nature with him and he practically exploded with all sorts of incredibly interesting information. It's definitely worth going and seeing it.

    I asked about himself in relation to Poe, at least, that was the angle though not the actual questions.

    Maybe I will rent a car when I go to Ireland... if I can get an automatic, I'm not worried about driving on the left side...
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Pomegranates are where it's at!

    "What hands are here, ha? They pluck out mine eyes.
    Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood
    Clean from my hand? No; this my hand will rather
    The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
    Making the green one red."

    I LOVE POMEGRANATES!!!

    My kingdom for a pomegranate tree.

    However, ever since I had fresh squeezed pomegranate juice in Pakistan, I have been unable to find anything that compares.

    *goes in search of perfect juice*

    Oooh I'd like some perfect juice too.

    A combo of pineapple, orange, mango juices with some lemon zest and a couple of uncrushed blueberries would be interesting.

    I think?

    The awkward moment when you realize "spanakopita" is not pronounced "spank-a-pita".
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth
