For those that do not know, I am a massive nerd.  Thus far, the blog has not really shown this (you probably just think I am a professor who eats a lot, which would be true), but today that changes!  Cthulhu Chick recently posted a list of awesome words from H.P. Lovecraft's complete works. She also posted a Wordle:

Wordle: Lovecraft's Complete Works (horizontal)

I learned the word 'antediluvian' because of H.P. Lovecraft.  Good times.  If you have not read any H.P. Lovecraft, or want to read more, Cthulhu Chick has also posted a free eBook of his complete works.  If you are a sci-fi or horror fan, this is seminal stuff. Cthulhu fhtagn!


  1. This is very cool indeed--thanks for posting about it! Cthulhu Fhtagn!

  2. I know for a fact that I learned the words "antediluvian" and "cyclopean" because of H.P. Lovecraft. I continue to use the word antediluvian whenever possible...which is not very often, to be honest.
