It's not exactly an urgent matter, but think good thoughts for me? I haven't been to kendo in a week, due to the nature and degree of my illness. On top of that, I just went for a run, like a stubborn fool I am. I'd really like to not have the mushin smacked out of me, so vibrate in my direction if you please?

Thanks in advance :)

Don't cry; it's over now. Laugh, because it happened.

The following parts of my body are inoperative until further notice:

left sole, home to a huge blister;

right heel, which is really fucking tender;

right side, where some guy whacked me by mistake;

left forearm, where a large lump is forming;

right forearm, where I have a sweetass welt in the exact shape of the upper part of Liz's shinai.

Details to follow. First: dinner. And maybe some ice.

I'm trying a new experiment. Whenever I'm out and about, instead of having headphones on, listening to music (with the exception of my commute to work), I will...not have headphones on. I think I tend to tune out the world around me and its happenings to an unhealthy degree. It puts up a barrier that gives me an excuse to not interact with others - which is painful in the first place.

Today I was very successful at social intercourse. I wonder if it had to do with the experiment, or was I just really on top of it today?

Either way.

I'd love to say more, it's been a rather eventful day. But the alcohol buzz has been replaced by sleepiness, and four am comes sooner than one would like to admit. Nighties.

I sympathise with poor Desdemona when she had such a dangerous stream poured in her ear...I know now what I would do if I were a man and wanted to make a girl love me

Anyone who can place that quote can covet more of my admiration than they already do.

I wonder if that 'dangerous stream' bit is meant to invoke Hamlet. If so it really shades the image of Othello. No pun intended.

I love Othello. Those lines plus reading Harold Bloom have lately reminded me of that fact. I have an itch to re-watch the 1965 Olivier/Smith/Finlay/Jacobi rendition. It absolutely made me grieve the first time around and I wonder if it's as good as I remember.

I recall finding the first half-hour jarring...I mean, seeing a guy in blackface in the late 90s? Who wouldn't? But the play's not about that anymore than it's about racism. I've heard it suggested that it could have been done without it...I don't know. The text definitely seems to call for erm...a black guy. But would ditching the makeup make it less credible, less tragic? Maybe 'credible' is too strong a word. I might lost some of its realism out of the white/black context. But less tragic? No way.

Incidentally, I think I'd make a kickass Richard III. No makeup please, just strap a pillow to my back and I'm good to go :)
