Yesterday was William Shakespeare’s (generally agreed-on) birthday! We’ve celebrated in the past, but that was five years ago, so let’s do it again.

I’m kind of giddy about these questions, but I fear many may not be as amused. Ah well; the course of true love never did run smooth.

  1. In what way is all your world a stage?
  2. What is something wicked which this way comes?
  3. Is the fault in us, in our stars, or in something else?
  4. What will you be doing tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow?
  5. What’s your most recent pound of flesh made of?

Thanks for indulging this old English teacher, and may the light that breaks through yonder window be the dawn of a happy weekend!

One of my favorite movies of all time celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, and I had the pleasure to see it on the big screen for the first time Thursday evening. I was sixteen when it came out (yes; I’m 46), and too young to see it in theaters then, so although I’ve seen it on cable and DVD at least fifty times, this experience was a first, and it was incredible. So this week’s questions are inspired by that film.

  1. When you were seventeen, how did you spend most of your Saturdays?
  2. What was your high school locker like?
  3. When did you last have to replace a missing screw?
  4. What was the last thing you drank out of a Thermos?
  5. Do you still possess anything you created in high school (say, an elephant lamp that lights up when you pull the trunk)?

Thanks for participating, and don’t you forget about me this weekend!

  1. Where on your body have you had stitches, and what were the circumstances?

  3. “A stitch in time saves nine,” says the proverb, which means that mending one small tear in a fabric now prevents having to make nine stitches later when the damage is worse. How has this been illustrated in your life?
  4. What are your thoughts on Disney’s Lilo & Stitch?
  5. What experience do you have with needle and thread?

Thanks for participating, and have a lovely weekend!

Before we begin, I’d like to say that I usually give everything a very careful proof-reading before I publish these questions. The consistent quality and originality of my work here is of utmost importance to me. So do me a favor, and if I leave a word out of a question (as I did last week!), would you please insert it when you post the questions to your blog? Gr! I mean thanks!

  1. How confidently could you pick up and employ a jumprope, hula hoop. yoyo, and set of jacks?
