The Addams Family renting out rooms in their huge mansion cheaply to broke college students. – This whole thread is delightful.

Ramses and the Pharaohs Gold – Egypt has approved a Pharaonic exhibition for five cities in the U.S. and Europe. Road trip! (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Ancient Baking – Seamus Blackley posts frequent Twitter threads about baking bread using ancient techniques and period-appropriate ingredients.

Haunted Mansion Snow Village – Department 56 has a lovely miniature house based on the Disneyland mansion as part of its Halloween collection. They also have a neat Addams Family collection. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Memento Mori D20 – D20 dice made from real human bone. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Dog Sheet Ghost – This little wooden carving of a Very Good Dead Dog is just adorable.

How Lovecraft Pronounced Cthulhu – An interesting bit of linguistic sleuthing. Also, this is yet another thing that I’m going to blithely ignore Lovecraft about. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

    I also know exactly how “Linux” is supposed to be pronounced and I refuse to do so.

    Ah no! Department 56’s UK store doesn’t have the Addams pieces. I would actually have splashed out and got myself the house, Just Because. (Pretty sure it’s not what work intended the ‘working from home’ bonus for…)

    That Addams family thread is a classic and I never don’t love reading it.

    Seamus Blackley heard Carl Sagan about baking apple pies and was like, “I can’t invent the universe but here’s what I can do.”

    I’m disappointed those d20s are just bone embedded in resin as opposed to carved.

    Lovecraft, like Wilhite, is wrong about pronunciation.
