lately

so, having finished king lear- i am re-reading hamlet...why? you may ask...well, i have nothing else to read in the house...yep....thought about frost but i really feel he's more of an autumn read...perhaps another peruse of thoreau when i am done...i did enjoy lear- if you can enjoy tragedy- but i am finding hamlet to be a bit annoying....perhaps because i have been so tired lately...why he took out his wrath on poor ophelia is beyond me- she didn't do a thing as far as i could tell...

i am going to try to start julius caesar- but i liken that one to the titanic movie in the sense that i already know that caesar gets murdered...sigh...i enjoyed the re-read of macbeth too...so, the sidebar update is indeed correct...i am reading shakespeare...i will also say that i am not a fan of the comedies...and i don't care for romeo and juliet probably because i don't dig chick flicks and romance novels...and yes, i realize it's a tragedy too but the whole true love deal makes me want to barf...all over the bard...

'Brush up your Shakespeare" or at least watch "Kiss Me Kate".
