I should also, as part of my housematey duty, tell you all that Jo has started a blog called Billy and I. She's going to try and read all of Shakespeare's plays and Sonnets in a year, and blog about it....
Here's the blurb:
But knowing Jo, she'll need actual readers to stay motivated. So go read the first post and vote whether she should start with a tragedy or a comedy...I live in a world where everyone, myself included, uses the word 'random' far too many times a day for it to remain meaningful. Our dictionaries are swollen with new words, and yet orwell was right, our breadth of usage is shrinking. For some reason, despite a full and busy life, this angst about language, about meaning, provokes me to read all of shakespeare's known plays and sonnets, in a year, and tell you all about it... Or not. I might get bored or busy, but i'll try. Here's to billy and I.
