Sonnet and Scholarship

     Today I have to write a sonnet. Sorry about this entry being so snippy, but I was up until 2am this morning working of essays so that I could go to Japan this summer. God scholarship forms suck. 18 pages of just information, then 5 essays, and 13 pictures. Oog that was not fun. So this sonnet I'm writing has to be an "anti-valentine valentine..." I don't know why, but this seems a little too... overdone. Like the teacher thought it up years ago as a great idea and has refined it, but now she doesn't present it with enough bravado to really interest people. Speaking of Shakespeare...
     This year, Whitman is having a Shakespeare festival, and as my project idea, Jack and I are going to be wandering minstrels, but we need more people. Preferably people who play drumish and tamborinish parts. I could also use some good sites with some shakespearean music if anyone has the time to help me look. Thanks. (Note: entry into our wandering minstrels group is highly limited in the interest of being able to practice together civilly and playing good music, don't be offended if you don't make it!)

     Smoking Man: "Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable, because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or an english toffee but they're gone too fast and taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits of hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. If you're desperate enough to eat those, all you got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers."

Huh, that's really weird, what teacher do you have? I mean, did he/she give this anti-valentine assignment to the whole class or just to you?

1) Keating
2) Whole class
