I started proofreading for Project Gutenberg. I've been working on...Shakespeare... And it's even worse Shakespeare than normal because it's a book from the 1600s, with wrong spellings and v's for u's and whatnot. And lots of footnotes that need reformatting. I also did one page from a 1920s encyclopedia, but that was long and boring, except for all the editorial comments. I don't know why they even bother to do biased, outdated encyclopedias. Nobody's going to read it.

I've pretty much finished both my Shakespeare essays for next week, so other than finetuning Crakespeareanism, I'm almost Shakespeare-free! Well, except for the proofreading, but at least I don't have to think about the text in that. I had originally planned to read every Shakespeare play (the ultimate sacrifice!) for my Crakespeareanisming. Maybe I'll delay that for a while. Enough Shakespeare. Gosh. Time for lit theory.

for someone who doesn't like Crakespeare, you sure do find excuses to read more of him. Almost like you need it. Hmmmm.

Fie on you for suggesting such a thing, Blake. And a pox on both your houses!

Don't forget, you're the one who introduced me to Project Gutenberg in the first place. So really, you must be the one who likes Crakespeare.

And how darest thou accuse me of liking Crakespeare! May the feather of an albatross fall on your grave.

and...umm...I live in a condo. I don't have a house.
