I took myself of to Stratford Ontario this weekend, and had a lovely time. I even wore a dress and everything. I got to Stratford, and realized that everything was metered parking and I still had no Canadian money. So then I went to a coffee shop a ways from down town and got coffee and a banana muffin from the sweetest gay man in all of Canada. (I asked whether to get the blueberry or banana muffin and his eyes widened and said I had picked his two very favorite and there was no way he could decide. Then later when I went to get sugar for the coffee he patted me on the shoulder and said 'dear, there's sugar on the table, it's ok.')

I wandered around Stratford, and even found a yarn store. It didn't have anything suitable for my super seekrit project though. :(

I checked into my Bed and Breakfast, which was amaaaazing. The lady was so nice, and the room was gorgeous. And there was a doggie that came up to my door when I parked the car. He waited expectantly, and when I opened the door I saw he'd put his ball down for me to throw. Smart dog.

Then I went and saw Kiss Me Kate! )

After the first play I wandered around some more and tried to find a place to get dinner. I ended up in a place that was completely empty. So I left as soon as I could down a grilled cheese sandwich (I figured that would be safe enough) and then I got dessert at a coffee shop and headed back towards the theater. I was still pretty early so I wandered around the bank of the Avon and took pictures of all the swans.

Then I went and saw As You Like It! )

Then I went back to the B&B and went to bed. It was such a comfortable bed I didn't even wake up once, which I usually do when I'm not in my own bed.

So, Saturday was excellent. And you can see many pictures over here. Click and go see. You know you want to see the Shiniest Shakespeare Statue in the world.

Today is Shakespeare's birthday (or, rather, recognized birthday) so of course I must celebrate! Awhile back I babbled to [ profile] flidgetjerome about my own Shakespeare theory. I'm certainly no scholar, but I have read a lot of biographies on him, (Sorry, the picture is huge. And I have actually added another bio since) and knowing how little we know and how much conjecture there IS. I am totally comfortable throwing my own hat in the ring. Shakespeare theories are like cupcakes, everyone should have one.

My Theories, let me show you them )
