I don't know what to put here and I keep changing this stupid bio and it's never perfect. I'll get it eventually.

I'm obsessed with ancient rome and greece. I am currently working my way through the great playwrights, starting with Euripides. Once I finish Euripides it will be Aeschylus and Sophocles. Commentaries are just so hard to come by, thank the lord for academic libraries! 

I am a very big fan of the Brannagh production of Hamlet though I know and acknowledge the controversy of Brannagh hiring Kate Winslet because he said he had to wait for her to be 18 so he could cast himself doing a very very very unnecessary sex scene with her. but the aesthetics are great, I love them. I think I like David Tennant as Hamlet just a little bit more because Brannagh is very manicky, which is a choice of style -- I was saying he was manicky as someone who has experienced manic episodes, but he did say in the commentary that he deliberately chose to present as manic while playing Hamlet.

I love black, dark, bitter coffee. Not quite so bitter that it burns my mouth, though. I recently picked up this coffee called Death Wish Coffee, it's a very strong dark roast and the bag says "strongest coffee in the world", and I really like it.

I aspire to be a novelist one day. It would be nice to get a short story published somewhere, but rejections rejections rejections. Someday.

I love dogs.

DM me a fun fact or a joke.
