So here it is, another chance... http://t.co/PBCW69OB42
Gay marriage legal. This feels like the summer that grunge broke & all the religious conservatives are suddenly Queensrÿche.
I know some folks are upset about the #SCOTUSMarriage thing. Does the fact someone you care about feels less excluded soften the blow?
Lot of punching down on homophobic, bigoted assholes this week.
"This #SCOTUSMarriage ruling. What's next? [A pulled-from-my-ass hypothetical that will never happen]???" -- all the egg avatars

31 HORROR STORIES -- The opening paragraph of THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE (1959)

@ 1:00 PM

"No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone."

Shirley Jackson could write short stories that hung with you like great novels. She could also write paragraphs which could, alone, creep you to your toenails. THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE starts out that way, and never lets up. Stay with us forever, Eleanor.
