Rapt contemplation of introspective musing

The front page of today's PD:























Stoute barristers of the fote-ball, correck thine traveystie! A former bench-warmer's water-burden i' fatall combat with yon roge who once baiteth the mutt & tast'd the gruel of the gaol? O Thieveland, ye suff'ring the Lord's miserie to-day, thou graspeth at any mocke strawe of goodlie fortune to-morrow! Now, thro' the kynge's musick, I shall doeth th'equal but i' matters of heavenly import to the brain & soule physick of yr humblest servant.



Goeth, brigand, I say, goeth! fower I am stille rapt in thynkynge.

[note to self: half-assed ye olde English doesn't convey seriousness]
[self to self: try being serious for once]
[note to self: pfffffffffbbbbbbbbbbbbbbt]

Dude, it all made sense to me but I'm in that twilight land between wakefulness and sleep while sipping my first cup of coffee.

Hell, I just commented at Jim's place and I'm not really sure what I wrote. Might be the best shit I've done in a long time.

It's either you guys or fucking Chelsea. I hate the EPL. :)

You need to put down the Bard of Avon and join the 21st century.

So what's the next post going to be? In txt speak?
