The thing about Romeo and Juliet is they are all hyped up on hormones. once you become a grown-@$$ adult you realize how silly the whole story is. However to Shakespeare's credit I don't doubt the possibility of his story. It does seem like something Teenagers would do.

My cloths are gone... Not a good time thread....

I don't know what Romeo and Juliet have to do with anything, but it's 12 degrees here.


Eh I was just piggybacking off of limeys comment.

12 eh ok that's pretty cold. do you work on days that cold? What do you do when the temperature isn't even old enough to drive?

As far as the movie goes I hear Leonardo DiCaprio was in it...

....You WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?!?!?!??!?!?!??!

I was dating the General in high school when it came out in the theater, her friends wanted to go see it, so we sat in the back and gave each other hand jobs.

Couldn't tell you what happened but man i love that movie!

I never liked Romeo and Juliet (I thought it was really damned stupid, honestly) until I saw season one of the Canadian series "Slings and Arrows". Which, if you've not seen it, is one of the funniest damned series ever.

It's about a Canadian Shakespeare festival, the actors, the actors' lives and messy relationships and anxiety disorders, the business of "selling" Shakespeare to the general public, and the plays themselves.

It *begins* with a drunken director getting run over by a pig truck and his will stipulating that his head has to be removed from his body before cremation, his skull cleaned and used for all future productions of Hamlet...

Then his ghost comes back and starts talking to the new director.

Season One is Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet, and Juliet is Rachel McAdams.
Season Two is MacBeth (with the guy from Forever Knight as Maccers)
Season Three is King Lear and a ridiculous musical.

Too cold to drive? That doesn't happen in the midwest.

Out of curiosity, what would you consider too cold to drive?

But to answer your question, i have no f$$@ing clue what we're doing today.

Oh, here's a quote from the third season for all of you musical haters on FaWtL (which is, what, everybody but me and Lynora?)

Darren Nichols: I must say, I've fallen in love with the musical genre. It's the art-form of the common man. If you want to communicate something with the proletariat, cover it in sequins and make it sing. It's noisy, vulgar and utterly meaningless—I love it!


I Liked Repo It was technically a musical well opera but there like the same thing right?

I tried to stay up and watch it last night but I couldn't think of anything constructive to write.
"Your kid steals things from the classroom and hides them in his pockets and lies about it when caught, but he's sweet and smart and funny and only four so he gets away with it."
"Gee, I love teaching your son. He's a great kid. Too bad he can't figure out that you don't poop in the sink. Also, quit dressing him and putting his shoes on him so he won't throw a tantrum in class and insist that he can't do it himself."

I almost went into teaching. your making me happy I didn't.

Also that thief kid is going to go far in life... If he stays out of prison.

The board apparently ate my first reply to this.

So I was making a subtle joke. basically that if the temperature were a person and 12 it would not be old enough to drive. Basically any temperature below 15 is just to low.

-25 is to cold to drive not because I couldn't drive in it but because I wouldn't go outside in it.

Great success!
I finally figured out in [expletive redacted] Windows 7 how to STOP my computer from automatically closing all my programs and running updates and rebooting without asking me first.
After, what, a year?

I think I saw a couple episodes of it and liked it, but I don't remember finishing it.

I hate Romeo and Juliet, but I love West Side Story. Mostly because of the music, admittedly. Add me to your likes musicals list, LM.

Yay, we get to dig post holes, that'll be fun.


West Side Story is also the reason I had an extremely skewed perspective on gangs by the time I entered the education field.

MacBeth is nice.
Hamlet is great, if only by virtue of giving us Elegy Of Fortynbras, one of the two poetic pieces I found to my liking in the school (that I recall). I hated poetry. I still don't particularly like most of the time.

Storm was a let down, to be honest.
Titus Andronicus. Well. Uh. It gave us a cinematic version with Anthony Hopkins.
Othello. I think I read it. I don't really remember. I have an impression that the bad guy, what-s-his-name, Iago? I think it's Iago in English, was terribly flat, with being malicious for the sake of malice alone.

The Exchange

All right, I've taken a swig of Benedict and I'm heading to bed, before my innate alcohol tolerance burns it off. It's sort of strange but it's like each time I consume alcohol I can make a will save to act normally, and if I do, it negates the effects of alcohol, which means it's a waste to have drunk it in the first place, right?

Oh, God. Iago has so many possible interpretations of why he's doing it. Could be evil for evil's sake. Could be repressing an attraction to Othello. Could be jealous that Cassio got the promotion he wanted. Could be jealous of Desdemona's affection.

And some days we don't even get sawdust.

Edit: I'm joking, obviously. I'm actually well compensated for what I do (I'd be over minimum wage in San Francisco).

Interpretation, yes, but was there in the presentation of his behavior more hinting to greater depth? There is a reason why Shakespearean characters have monologues to flesh them out better and I don't recall Iago using it to make his case.
