A new fascination has taken over my free time. It is: Nintendo Wii.

My family got one (of all people, my Mother was the one behind the aquisition) and I feel that it may be the world's greatest invention. Forget medical science and communications, I can swing a Baseball bat with my remote control!

Anyways, that is my excuse for taking so long to post photos from Stratford. Now it turns out that my computer is posting photos VERY VERY slowly. So without further adieu, I present you:

The Complete Stratford Trip (abridged)

"This is the short and long of it"

"And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind."

"How poor are they that have not patience!"

"When shall we three meet again, in thunder lightening or in rain?"

"If music be the food of love, play on!"

"Come, come, good wine is a good familiar creature if it be well used"
(Alright, admitedly I had to do a google of Othello quotes to find that one)

and finally...

"Exit, pursued by a bear"

How was Merchant??

Very good. Much better than a certain Toronto Star theatre critic would have you believe.
They made some interesting use of the sub-plot with Jessica and Lorenzo. I basically came away from the show never wanting to be in a relationship with a man again. :P Your gender is not represented particularly well in this show at all.
Merchant was very good, To Kill a Mockingbird was... eh... not a great adaptation to begin with, and Not I was excellent. All and all a good time.
