unmanned

"I write poetry. . . and I've never been in love." Kapka

"I am two fools, I know, for loving, and for saying so in whining poetry." Donne

518 final last night, poetry reading style. One student chose not to give a very long bio, so Dr. Howe provided one for him through the poetry he had workshopped this semester. It made me wonder what my bio would be if people based it on what I wrote.

"If love is the answer, could you repeat the question?" Lily Tomlin

"May I admire you again today?" Duckie

Someone has been persistently asking who my "crush of the day" is. And I keep telling this someone that I don't have one. I realized this was primarily the result of staying at home and working on papers (which I should be doing right now). So today I got out. Periodicals baby. And I decided Master Fob is right.

"You will end up childless and alone."
"Well, fingers crossed, yeah." About a Boy

"Speak, cousin--'tis your cue. Or if you will not, stop his mouth with a kiss and let him not speak neither." Beatrice

Of course I'm right. I'm not sure about what, though. Did you run into a lot of gay people today?

I just watched Much Ado About Nothing the other day. I love that quote.
