2. You're better off going to the Moon and getting an Earthtan.

I read recently that the Earth is 80% brighter in the Moon's sky than the Moon is in ours.

6. You're not kidding.

The ghost of Hamlet's father breezed through here not long ago, wondering what all the ruckus was about...

Come! A drink for thee! For thou, mine angel of the East!"

16. Will says: "If we shadows have offended, think but this and all is mended:

That you have but slumber'd here while these shadows did appear."

He adds to that:

"And that is good English."

21. Those are two unrelated quotes.

The first is from the epilogue (in sonnet form) from A Midsummer Night's Dream and spoken by Puck. The second is a line from Henry V.

13. Do you (Aristus) have a favorite play?

Kind of difficult to choose, I realize.

22. King Lear just reduces me to tears and awe...

The scene where he carries in Cordelia's body, the noose still around her neck, is shattering, as is the scene previous where Lear reveals that she had "cause" to reject him and she says "no cause...no cause..." It is a stunningly intimate moment...

15. I am sorry I missed this, my dear Aristus!

I have been preoccupied with various doings in my own silly life of late...

Please forgive me!

It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.

19. Sorry Aristus. I'm either battling the flu or I have post anaesthesia side effects

 

From a minor procedure.

Super nauseated and feeling like I've been hit by a bus.

Hope tomorrow's better and I can think of drinking and dinner with you and Will.
