On Saturday January 28, Lisa Loring, the actress best known for her portrayal of Wednesday Addams in "The Addams Family" TV show in the 1960s, had died. On Monday, I saw Gil Otaared going about dressed like her, complete with "Thing" on her shoulder.
"Well, Friday I just had an idea to make a Wednesday avatar," the ringtail told me, "Then right after, Lisa Loring, the actress from the 1960s Addams Family show, died. So it seemed fitting. Because honestly as sad as it is, it is an extremely Wednesday thing that this happened."
She told me she wouldn't mind her picture in the paper, "Make sure you get Thing's good side."
