Apologies to Edward Gorey

I played Gloom over the break, and it was as delightfully depressing as expected. Trying to make happy, and then kill, my family members' family members...
I find anything even vaguely Gorey-esque to be exceedingly diverting (to borrow a Jane Austen-ism).

This post's theme word: thanatotic, "an ancient Greek personification of death" or, in psychoanalysis, "the death instinct, esp. as expressed in violent aggression."
