Edgar Allen Poe's Murder Mystery Dinner Party

 It's been a week of ups and downs and sore disappointments, but our college girl is coming home for the semester on Tuesday. (Classes and finals will be online, and campus is shutting down, for the most part.) As the kids have been eating boxed take-out meals from the cafeteria, which they can consume either outside in a tent or alone in their rooms, the sadness of losing the last week with friends is lessened by the prospect of eating hot, homemade food indoors.

Still, it's been a rollercoaster as the situation has evolved day by day. We had been looking forward to hosting some college friends for Thanksgiving (insert here the obligatory caveat about our family being fairly isolated these days, alas, and the college kids being in a fairly healthy bubble). But now of course everyone is going home, and we're bummed not to meet the pals.

So let's have a virtual dinner party, what? Allow me to invite you to Edgar Allen Poe's Murder Mystery Dinner Party/Gala for Friends Potluck.

If you need to see Edgar Allen Poe, the bored Valley Girl ghost of Lenore, Oscar Wilde, Charlotte Bronte, Ernest Hemingway, George Eliot, H.G. Wells, and host of other famous authors snark at each other as they hunt for the murderer in their midst, this is the web series to cheer you as you mourn your canceled Thanksgiving. All told, it's about two hours of anachronistic literary absurdity.

That was one long series of corny jokes. I found myself laughing more than once, though.
