Amok.

I’m sorry I can’t pay attention to you today—I am in the midst of writing a poetry essay ONE WHOLE WEEK before it’s due.  This is monumental.  And, unfortunately, time-consuming.  Life-draining.  Blood-sucking.  You get the idea.  It is eating away at my day and leaving no room for this blog or my readers.  I’m so sorry to put you on the back burner like this.

It’s very much the way Shakespeare puts his mistress on the back burner in “Sonnet #130,” using a combination of corporeal and ethereal imagery to ground women in ugly reality, while simultaneously elevating men to intellectual, spiritual, and, therefore, powerful heights.  Thus we see that, although he makes use of revolutionary diction for the 17th Century, Shakespeare’s forward-thinking poetry ultimately works toward a traditional, typical end: the objectification of women as sexual objects.

Oh, what? That’s not a decent paragraph for a blog post?  You could care less about effing Shakespeare and his effing sonnets?  Me too.  Me neither.  I have no idea what I am saying.

So, you see, I’m really in no state to be posting on my blog.  So sorry.

My apologies.

Hither, thither, mischance, amok.

I do not like Shakespeare.

Dither, blither, ’tis rotten luck

That I should suffer through him.

And that’s that.

Crapshoot.  Just like I toldja yesterdayOne Enormous Crapshoot.

    I’m so sorry you have only ONE WEEK for that poetry essay. I hope you get a good grade!
    And don’t worry about us, we’ll be here! Supporting you :)

    Starting one week ahead of time is very good! Much better than the night before, I say. Seems like you’ve got a good start. Darn that Shakespeare. What a jerk.

  3. Good for you that you are starting a week ahead of time instead of the last minute. This should mean that it will be great.

    Shakespeare is what Shakespeare does, so if he writes this way I certainly would not want to be his girlfriend– just saying.

  4. Oh Camille you never fail to make my day!
    Btw, I thought that was a completely satisfactory paragraph for a blog post!

    hee hee. It seems to me that you’re off to a good start!

    I’m BAAACK! Although not 100% because of a rather annoying tetanus booster that makes me feel like I have the flu. I am pretty happy they only told me my arm would be sore because if I knew anything else, I might have punched the nurse. I’m a little wacky in the doctor’s office. Always have been. Apparently it can have side effects such as low grade fevers, (check) body aches, (check) headaches, (check) and fatigue. (Double check)
    A week earlier eh?
    Oh my gosh! I found out I’m Canadian! For real this time! COOL HUH? So when I say, “Eh,” I can actually say it without thinking I’m crazy or something. I was stoked. We’ve got a lot of family history that will never be told but at least I have that vital piece of information.
    Anyway, good thinking Lincoln. If I started a week early on anything I wouldn’t have memories of crying at 2am kicking myself for not starting earlier. I’m not a huge fan of Shakespeare but I think its pretty darn interesting how he only gave his wife a bed when he died. And they say he’s romantic. I’m not buying it!
    You poor thing. School sucks. I know. But it will end at one point. It might seem like a looong time away but it will come. You’re one brave soul being an English major. Some say the same for me with Psych.

    At least you wrote something. It satisfies my daily fix.
