Happy Birthday, Bill…but you get a gift!

Ah, April 23. Ol’ Bill’s birthday… not mine, silly (that was last month), but the Bard himself, Willie Shakes!

Honestly, we’re not completely sure if it is today or tomorrow. All we know is that he was baptized on the 26th. He died on the 23rd some 52 years later…and people like the symmetry of him being born and dying on the same day…and as they say in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, “When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.”

Regardless if the birthday is today or tomorrow, you–my friends–can get a gift…

This is your captain speaking: it’s gonna be a bumpy ride…

Over the course of the next two weeks, the website might be a little, shall we say, finicky. So will my personal site.

I’m switching web hosts. No need for more statements until the shift has been made (at which point, I’m thinking scorched-earth isn’t a bad idea…): but let’s just say, “GDGD!”

Feeling like Prince Humperdinck

Nothing of real value to add today… kinda swamped. Mister Roberts opens Friday, so we’re in the midst of tech/dress rehearsal week; my final paper for my Seminar on British Literature is due on Sunday (a 20-pager for which I’ve written a whopping four); I still need to create materials for this weekend’s sessions of my Shakespeare for Actors class; plus, business stuff, website stuff, etc. etc. etc….
