Insomniac Surfs the Blogosphere

Blogger is finally back up after a full day's worth of "technical difficulties" — secretly, I'm convinced it was my excessive blogging and blogsurfing activity which did it, but shhh! don't tell Blogger.

So in my sweep through the many sites on which I regularly lurk, I found many things strange and marvelous, but this one takes the cake: on "Such Shakespeare Stuff," Duane has a YouTube clip of, wait for it....

*Drumroll*

The Beatles doing 'Pyramus and Thisbe' from Midsummer Night's Dream.

The most hilarious Shakespeare
moment I've seen in YEARS.



On Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog, GC decided he'd "wolde teste out sum newe materiale" which he thinks "has legges":THE MOOST
THRILLINGE ROMAUNCE OF THE CIPHRE OF LEONARDO


I was howling, I tell ya! I also like Chaucer's blog t-shirts... I'm adding the "Ich am a gentil harlot and a kynde" on my 'I want'-list, te-hee!



On About Texts, there is a retrospective on Calvin and Hobbes which makes for a nice read — so miss seeing the strip in the paper.  But, of course I own all the books, sooo.


More later. Might try that sleeping thing. I hear it's good for you.

Sleeping is very good for you. In my case my body requires at least 16 hours, 9 of which need to be during daylight hours for some reason.

Now that I think about it I may have a problem of some sort...
