If We Were Having Coffee… On April 24

Hello, my lovelies!

How are you today? Welcome to this week’s Weekend Coffee Share! As you can see, this week’s been pretty sparse on this blog. I think it’s fair to say that I had to give up on the A to Z Challenge for Study.Read.Write. I’m still going on Literati Girl, though and still catching up – as of right now I’ve got 3 reviews to go to be up-to-date.

If we were having coffee, we’d sit inside with a hot beverage. On Thursday we had 19°C here; it just started snowing today. The weather is so changeable, it’s not fun anymore.

If we were having coffee today, I’d ask you whether you are a Shakespeare fan, and whether you did anything to mark his 400th anniversary yesterday. Part of the reason I’m a day late with my Coffee Share is because I spent last night in Düsseldorf to attend the live screening of Shakespeare Live! from the RSC. It was amazing! Did you know there is a Hip-Hop Shakespeare Company, for example? The show contained examples from all forms of performing arts influenced by William Shakespeare, and would serve well as an introduction to the Bard and what’s possible with his works. I actually wrote a review about the show last night, and I’d love for you to check it out.

This was my favourite part of the show last night:

If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that more books arrived for my M.A. thesis. But I have been so busy with work and helping my dad now he’s out of the hospital, as well as my gran, I’ve not made any progress yet.

I am sorry that this is a short Coffee Share, but I’ve had a pretty uneventful week otherwise. Check out the other Weekend Coffee Sharers, though.

Thank you for having coffee with me. Same time, next week?

  1. Thanks for putting me onto those clips from RSC. I love that rendition of “To be or not to be”. That’s quite a fitting question for many of my dead poets, who actually decided that non-being was the best way forward unfortunately. I was also excited to see Australian Tim Minchin in that.

  2. Nice to meet you too. I always feel there is nothing to write about. Most weeks are just like the last. I signed up for Snapchat and I don’t know how to use it now that I have it. I might delete it. I can’t get it to do anything.
