Beth: so I watched 4 different versions of the St. Crispin’s day speech yesterday. 2/4 made me cry. fucking Shakespeare
B: Brannagh and Hiddles
S: Shakespeare was evil in the same way that Joss Whedon is evil. They just use their powers in slightly different ways.
B: Yes. Brannagh’s also made me want to ride to war
S: Ole Kenneth roused you to arms, did he?
B: DUDE. You should watch that and see if YOU don’t want to go fight for King harry
Henry V is one of my fav plays. there is SO MUCH Shakespeare in my new book. I think you and I are the only people who will like it.
S: THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE LIKE US.
B: like two. and I went to Berkeley with both of them.
S: There are more!! There must be. They’re just too well educated and wise to make a fuss about it.
B: well I’m doing my part to bring the sexy back by putting Shakespeare in my smexy book. All the wonderful things I do with Shakespeare in this book! (Sounds like I’m writing Shakespeare slash, doesn’t it?)
