facts about edward gorey:

1) he always wore fur coats and converse all-stars around the town where he lived.
2) it was his birthday yesterday.

and i missed it. i'm a TERRIBLE fan. but i wanted to make it up with this post. the last time i did a gorey post it was mostly in the holiday-type vein, so let's see what else the guy in a fur coat + chuck taylors can do.

the man himself! i think he likes cats.

and one of my most sentimental gorey favorites:

and so, a happy belated birthday to him, and a happy wednesday to you.
