Okay, before this post starts, you should know that I wrote this in my blog email and emailed it to my main email address while I was at school, and when I opened my email just now I was momentarily confused how I emailed myself from the future from my blog. That’s the kind of person I am. Oh, and also, the title has very little to do with this post. Now, on to the post itself.
So, I didn’t write a blog post yesterday (and I totally could have, but I forgot). But I’m in 7th period right now and I have nothing to do (except, I COULD be doing math, but I hate the problem I’m on and I’ve spent SO MUCH TIME ON IT so I’m not doing math) so my mother was all “stop talking to Stephene and write a blog post” so now I’m writing a blog post.
So, you didn’t get a post on schedule, but you do, in fact, get a post.
So, in English right now we’re reading “Much Ado About Nothing” which is up there in my favorite Shakespeare plays, so I’m very excited about it. The way my madre does it is she shows a movie of the play, then we read it, then we watch it again.
We’re watching the Branagh version, which I hadn’t seen before. I love the Whedon version with an unholy passion, so I didn’t WANT to like the Branagh version, but so far it’s very good. I’d recommend. But also watch the Whedon. In fact, watch the Whedon first. It’s better.
I feel like a good percentage of you have no idea what I’m talking about, but that’s okay. Just look up “‘Much Ado About Nothing’ Joss Whedon” and watch. It’s very good.
I think I mostly like it because I’m a complete sucker for the love story trope where the two people start out hating each other and then fall in love. And it’s hilarious how easy it is to get Beatrice and Benedick to fall in love, too.
So, “Much Ado.” I like. You should familiarize yourself with it if you have not already.
My name is Emma, that is my story.
