Ides of March by Sam M. '07

Among other things, I now have the power to kill Macbeth.

DID YOU KNOW? Chicken Tikka Masala was actually invented in Great Britain.

I know you’re all probably still recovering from your raucous Pi Day celebrations, but I’d like you to join me in celebrating the birth of the woman from whose womb I was untimely ripped a mere twenty years ago.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM’S MOM!!

  3. You Anon citizens do know that those lines are from Hamlet, not Macbeth?

    Of course, but it seemed so much more poetic than “Bubble bubble, toil and trouble”

    …Yeah, I probably screwed that up, but it’s been about 6 years since I last read Macbeth so give me a break. :-p

    I thought untimely was an adjective…

    So the adverb form would be untimelyly?

    Oh English, a cruel mistress art thou.

    Samuel,

    Thank you so much for the birthday blog. It was the best present ever.

    Thanks also to everyone who sang Happy Birthday To You to me on the telephone last night. Maybe that was the best present ever.

    Thanks Ruth for the birthday greeting. And thanks also Anonymous, just in case you were saying Happy B-day to me and not just to Justine’s Mom.

    Happy Birthday Justine’s Mom!

    Sam, I love you. Please be careful today and every day.

    Love,

    mom
