OK, you're both going to have to STOP right now before I lose my lunch! :lol: :lol:

I'll be like the policeman in the monty python sketches:

You're not geek-boy. Stop.

Sorry, Miss Malia. We were just having a bit of madcap badinage. :wink:

Another piece by 'the' bard:

Sonnet CVI.

When in the chronicle of wasted time
I see descriptions of the fairest wights,
And beauty making beautiful old rhyme,
In praise of ladies dead, and lovely knights;
Then in the blazon of sweet beauties best,
Of hand, of foot, of lip, of eye, of brow,
I see their antique pen would have expressed
Even such a beauty as you master now:
So all their praises are but prophecies
Of this our time, all you prefiguring;
And for they looked but with divining eyes
They had not skill enough your worth to sing;
For we which now behold these present days
Have eyes to wonder, but lack tongues to praise.
"Oh what a misery it is to have an intellect in splints".

I just finished reading The Once and Future King this weekend, and there are some really beautiful and thoughtful and heartbreaking passages in it, particularly at the end. Here's a line that I particularly like, from Arthur to Gawaine, referring to Gawaine's assertion that Lancelot was cowardly in refusing to kill him and end the war between them on two separate occassions:

"The bravest people are the ones who don't mind looking like cowards."
"Holy Kleenex, Batman! It was right under our nose and we blew it!"
