[normal service will resume shortly]

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents’ strife.
The fearful passage of their death-mark’d love,
And the continuance of their parents’ rage,
Which, but their children’s end, nought could remove,
Is now the two hours’ traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

Can thouest know, what thou hath never thought,
This writers pen comes to a nought.
Of thoughts and pages thy pencil once did strike,
I write but nonsense and none of life.

    Romeo and Juliet is a horrid, horrid play. Or at least I thought so.

    Where have you been, dear?
    I haven’t been on much myself, but I’ve gotten back into the flow of things and I hope we can remain frequent blogging buddies. But I know you’re most likely busy. Anywho, it’s not to see you were on. If that makes any sense(:
