Happy Belated Birthday!

I got so caught up in volunteering yesterday (not really, I worked and then watched Nip/Tuck, but I would have been out volunteering dammit) that I forgot that it was Edgar Allen Poe's Birthday!
He would have been 200 years old, and not smelling very good!! Happy Birthday Original Gangster!!
By the way, Happy Inauguration Day everyone! Of course I have to work, but it will be an Obama-rama at my house tonight!

Have you ever read about how he died? It's the weirdest thing. He disappeared for a few days, and then he was found on the street, deathly ill (beaten up, I think), wearing another man's clothes- they were too small for him. Someone took him to a hospital, and he died in hospital.

Why was he wearing someone else's clothes?

You probably know more about it than I do. Tell me! TELL ME! WHY???!!!!

I'm really enjoying that book you sent, by the way, the short stories...

He was having a serious "lost weekend" if you know what I mean. That is what hard grain hooch will do to you. I am glad you like the book!!
