Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

A Million Pardons To The Bard

To tell or not to tell, that is the question.
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous Cupid,
Or to take arms against the sea of Love,
And by opposing, end it? To die, to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache and the thousand natural longings
That flesh is heir to, ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this romantic coil,
Must give us pause.
The pangs of despised love.

A little hope is a dangerous thing; and a loss of hope leading to despair, even more.

Nice take on the Hamlet piece, Mr McVie. You put it well in the context of romance.

@CARRIE: Hehehe, it was easy. Just get the original and replace select words with references on love and romance, and viola! =)
