Tea-drinker par excellence

Betrayal at House on the Hill

Each time we've played this game I've really enjoyed it so I've been looking to buy a copy. It seems perfectly playable with two. Unfortunately it's out of print and Boardgamegeek says it usually goes for over £50. However I've just managed to get a new copy from an Australian for rather less than that and I'm rather chuffed.

So don't go saying I could have had yours for a tenner.
Tea-drinker par excellence

Lovecraft in Brooklyn

I'd not heard the Mountain Goats before but now I'm impressed.

woke up afraid of my own shadow
Like, Genuinely afraid
headed for the pawnshop
To buy myself a switchblade
Someday somethings coming
From way out beyond the stars
To kill us while we stand here
It will store our brains in mason jar
And then the girl behind the counter asks "How do you feel today?" and I say "I feel like Lovecraft in Brooklyn!"

There are numerous youtube videos including this remix and this great live version.
