Last week's quote is from Gloucester's opening soliloquy in Richard III:

Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace,
Have no delight to pass away the time,
Unless to spy my shadow in the sun
And descant on mine own deformity

I was reminded of this play (one of my favorites) while reading George R. R. Martin's fantasy series based on the Wars of the Roses; it's pretty clear which character in these books is based on Richard III, but some of the other parallels are not so obvious.

The new quote is difficulty: Moderate; 2 points.


Excellent choice!

I like the way it seems to suggest that I, Arcane Gazebo, am the deadest man in Deadonia; this effect was unintentional. It does sort of sum up my feeling about the next five weeks or so.

I say we all run away from our jobs and head somewhere tropical.
