So I got to see trillian_stars be Brutus in Julius Caesar last week at Boy Latin and it was spectacular. It's one of those Shakespeare plays that nobody ever seems to do (I don't really need to see Midsummernight's Dream again) but it's just packed with awesome. I now know where "the fault in our stars" comes from and "Cry havoc! And let slip the dogs of war!" -- which is a great line. Aaaaand, I always thought that "I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him," meant that Antony was, you know, angry and Caesar and was going to kill him -- but now I know that's not what happens. It's a great play filled with noble & ignoble people and beautiful language and Cassius -- hey, I was persuaded.
Brutus is actually a really good guy (I didn't know). Brutus doesn't just kill Caesar, Brutus kills just about everybody. He's a fierce warrior, and, really truthful and trustworthy. When he explains why he stabbed his good friend to death, it all makes even more sense and you end up feeling really sympathetic -- or at least it did when Trillian did it. She makes a really wonderful Brutus. I have a super awesome wife.

I'm live-updating my progress in tomorrow's race on Facebook. If you want to follow or whatnot, you can friend me there. I'll probably do a re-cap later in the week and then hopefully I'll shut up about sports/fitness for a while. It's been a long time since October 1 when I joined the gym and got on the rowing machine for the first time and was so beat up by it that I couldn't lift my leg high enough to climb into the tub to soak my wounded body.
If you're going to be along the course of the Broad Street Run tomorrow, let me know where you'll be sitting and I'll try and be on your side of the street for the waving and whatnots. The exciting thing is my leg may just snap in half and you'll get to see the agony on my face as I limp by.
Today was my mother's birthday and what do you think she wanted for her birthday? We all went on a picnic & then watched The Creature from the Black Lagoon -- which is about as awesome a birthday as I'd ever want for myself.
Anyhoo. I'm going to bed in half an hour. See you tomorrow.
