|July 8, 2012, Sally Grace's blessing day|
We played Sorry with Elliot. They are on their way home today.
I took a look at my to-do list for this year to see how I was doing. There were only two things on it. One, was learn to knit socks. And two was watch BBC Shakespeare plays.
I still don't know how to knit the heel, but I'm getting good, finally, at the upper sock.
Richard III and Hamlet--that's all I've watched and it's mid-July. Hamlet wasn't BBC but Christopher Plummer as Hamlet back in the day. It's now my favorite production of Hamlet. Christopher Plummer is my favorite Hamlet and my favorite Iago. And this is the only Hamlet I've seen that didn't go with the Freudian interpretation and I must say, it was refreshing. Hamlet and Gertrude in their pretend humping in the 3rd act makes me sick. Also in the Plummer production no one hears the ghost but Hamlet. (You can tell in the Cellerage scene). Blah blah blah.
Major July ennui. It might rain today and that would be good.
Also, three people I know died this past week. I think it's a sign.
