Bard-storming

Just got back from three days of Shakespeare at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery. Henry VI (Parts A and B) and Richard III. My mind is spent from translating all the forsooths and how-nows into modern language. But it was wonderful. Had a hard time picking out actors who weren't up to snuff. Oh, and I'm in love with Joan of Arc, which is problematic since Jenn and I were there on a late second anniversary. Or not, since Joan's, like, dead anyway.

Stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast near downtown. The Red Bluff Cottage, it was called. The only drag was the early breakfast -- 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, 8 a.m. on Sunday. I guess the Pound House has us spoiled with their eat-when-you-like Cafe 222.

More posting after rest.
