What if Shakespeare had been a blogger?

I didn't take this picture

I didn't take this picture

To blog, or not to blog?
That is the question
Whether ’tis better in the mind to suffer
the slings and arrows of the poorly exposed photos
Or to take arms against the photos
By fiddling with them in Photoshop?
And by fiddling, fool oneself
that thou hadst planned a blog for today?
When it is true that all you want to do is sleep
‘Cause thou hast cometh down
with the second cold in three weeks
and your head acheth, and your nose runneth
verily, it runneth like a river.
The body aches and the thousand sneezes
that my flesh is heir to, tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep; [instead of going to work]; perchance to dream,
ay there’s the Vick’s Vaporub
For in that sleep of death
[death?? why are we talking about death?
it’s just cold, right? not, like, swine flu or anything?]
When we have shuffled off for more Tylenol
And must taketh up the laptop and get to work
Mainly because we want to buy a macro lens
and maybe some groceries
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
and we fling off a post like this
Hoping for something better on the ‘morrow.

  1. Delightfully written prose! Smiles abound, and your Shakespeare image needs no cropping or color fixing at all!

    To be or not to be. That is the question here. Or is the question to post or not to post?

    Lately I’ve been deciding not to post. I just don’t have much to say!!

    Hope you feel better.

    If my horrible suffering can make you laugh then it was worth it. No. Wait. It wasn’t worth it at all, but it’s not like I seem to have a choice about having a cold. So, still you may as well get a laugh out of it. I have to go find another box of kleenex, so I have to run.
