Delayed gratification

  • If I don't blog, if I don't write, if I don't go out, if I don't watch TV, if I don't play on the Internet, if I don't listen to music, if I don't pleasure read, if I don't drink more than a pregnant woman's weekly allowance of booze, if I live in Wales but don't actually live in Wales I can just barely keep up.

  • I have been amusing myself lately by thinking of what it would sound like if Shakespeare were performed by a load of people with Larry the Cable Guy accents. Actual proper good-quality actors in a top-level production, but everyone sounding like a redneck.

    Admit it, my visit set you back 25 days. Mainly because time spent with me seems 25 times longer than it actually is.
    How long until you geta winter break?

    I read somewhere that the Elizabethan English accent sounded a lot like the southern accent of today. Which is really fucking scary to think about.

    If they're top quality actors sounding like rednecks you'll have to pay them more. If they're top quality rednecks behaving like actors, you can get them a six-pack or two & be all paid up. You make the call.

    If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck....

    I'd pay good money to see Lear done in deliberately crap Eastern European accents.
