Well... I AM Milton. I just came back from the firmament to check out this forum--what's this fawning over little John Keats?? You should be heralding me...the Lady of Christ's College!


*bending over laughing* :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

You people give me joy in which words fail to describe...

Aww man, I was going to use that one! :P

By the way, I took my time machine back to 1819 today and visited our boy Keats. He says hi. :lol:

Just wondered. :wink:

I think it's great - I can't talk to anyone else but you guys about this stuff so it's a real release for me.

I would just get very puzzled looks from all my friends if I said half this stuff to them :roll:

You kidding? People just give me that sideways look like, "really? Keats? wow."

For instance, today in the gym I was running on the treadmill and I started thinking of myself running through the streets of Rome with a vial in hand (medicine) and I'm running fast as I can to get to him...bodice laces coming loose, hair all over the place... :lol: I mean a serious daydream here...before I knew it I had the treadmill speed up to 6.5 and I was tearing it up! When I stopped I looked around and people just sort of looked at me like, "uh-huh...issues."

:lol: :lol:

I can see Despondence reading this--simulating the up-chuck! :lol:

I'm going with "not very bright" :P

Just kidding :wink:

Reading Paradise Lost was such a labor of love for me that I can't imagine having to read the whole thing squinting so that I could see the lines before having to interpret them!



:lol: :lol: :P

Nothing like a good daydream to accompany a good workout!

Who are we thinking would play Satan in this Paradise Lost film? If it were my choice, I'd pick Christopher Walken :wink:

Unless this is a CGI Satan, then it'd have to be Andy Serkis :P
