10 ways you know you've been reading too much Lovecraft

Over on the excellent HPPodcraft message boards, a member named Parralaxicality kicked off a thread called "You know you've been reading too much Lovecraft when..." with this great Top 10 list. When last I looked at the discussion there were more than 40 entries, so head over there and take a look. Meanwhile, here's how it all started:

6. You blame the poor quality of your shoes on the degenerate Asiatics who manufactured them.

7. You develop an uneasy attraction to fish and white gorillas.

8. You seal yourself up in your house, block out the windows and refuse to look at yourself in a mirror.

9. You refuse to watch Blade Runner or Aliens because they feature trapezihedral buildings.

10. When a contractor informs you that your house is subsiding, you demand he dig until he finds the temple causing it.
