"The worst is death, and death will have his day..."
... and in so many different ways, too.

This is just too awesome to chuck into an existing thread, so, without further ado (about nothing... well, sorry, we all knew it was inevitable! Rolleyes ): the deaths in Shakespeare!

I think Iras and Antigonus are my favourite (the latter, because of Wodehouse Blush ). Oh, and Tamora and the pies. [Image: thEmoticon-Pie.gif]

Ha! My husband teaches Shakespeare and is in a local Shakespeare acting troupe. He's acted in every one of those productions except Antony and Cleopatra. Last year he was Caesar in Julius Caesar and after he was stabbed and beaten and carried off stage he quickly changed costumes, put on a beard and came out as Cinna the Poet, was then promptly torn to shreds by an angry mob. He came home bruised and hurtin' every night.

I'll send him this poster. He'll love it.

Tartarus, at least it's stabbing, not poking Angel

I so know the feeling. Only, with me it's books. The worst (even though now is a second close) was when I had a day job and would translate at night and sleep for two-three hours a night for months.

I remember once wanting to take a short nap late in the evening so I slept on my knees (leaning on the bed, obviously), thinking it's so uncomfortable, I'd wake up in a bit. Slept for three hours straight.

Favourite bit was once when I sitting in front of the computer, trying to work, next thing I know, there's a word typed on the screen, that I don't remember typing and that has nothing to do with my book (I think it was "regiment"). Must have dozed off for a second with my eyes open and all Rolleyes

Then you should show him this:




"Joe Public loves the ghost; he loves the swordfights; he loves the crazy chick in the see-through dress who does the flower gags and then drowns herself. But no-one likes Hamlet — no-one."

(Can't say I'm sorry we've lost the tap dance at the end of Othello, but would have loved to hear the avocado monologue in King Lear.)

Oh, and this, if he also acts. This is brilliant on so many levels. Have seen it so many times and still laugh out loud every time. The mad king hatching an egg, indeed! Big Grin

Was that Hugh Laurie (Dr House), in the first video?

YES! Evil_monster Hobo Weeping is right! My kids are also two years apart and at one point I was so exhausted and tired I could hardly stand up. One afternoon when the newborn was sleeping but my two year old was tearing around the house and refusing to take a nap I gave my two year old a few drops of baby Tylenol which made him sleep so I could sleep too. He wasn't sick, mind you. I just needed some damn sleep. We never had any extended family near by so my husband and I were doing it alone.

Kinda appropriate, seeing as most (of not all) of my Shakespeare comes/came in the from of plays, retold for kids by Mary and somebody else something (think they might have been married). Am not even ashamed. Sometimes life's too short. Drinking Beverage
