I broke down and ordered the following from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society:
The DVD of their silent movie version of “Call of Cthulhu”, which includes the 47-minute film (done in the style of a 1920s-period film — check out the trailer), the soundtrack, deleted scenes, a making-of documentary and more goodies. Can you say viewing party? I knew you could.
…plus, because I’m a total geek, I grabbed the 20s-style movie poster as well. 12 x 24. This sucker is going in my office:
The Department of Homeland Security opened an investigation on a retired Texas schoolteacher…..for paying down his credit card.
The schoolteacher and his wife paid a hefty chunk of their credit card balance [$6,522], and then checked online to see if their account had been credited. They learned that the check had arrived, but the amount available for credit on their account hadn’t changed. They called to see what the problem was.
They were told, as they moved up the managerial ladder at the call center, that the amount they had sent in was much larger than their normal monthly payment—and if the increase hits a certain percentage higher than that normal payment, Homeland Security has to be notified.
For paying off your credit card.
A reminder to my players, since it’s been quite a while since our last session: We are playing Serenity this Sunday, 2-ish.
: If you’re still interested in playing, come on out and observe, and we can talk character options.
