The Importance Of Being Earnest

Posted by Velox , Jun 04 2010 · 22 views

Life
So we read the play a couple weeks ago in British Literature class. It's pretty good.

I'll tell you one thing, though. It's extremely hard to try and explain it to someone in just a few sentences. My first attempt [spoiler'd for those that haven't read it before]:

Yeah, didn't make any sense, did it? =P I could probably do better if I took a little more time, but on a spare-of-the-moment type of thing it's kinda hard to plan it out coherently.

Also yay just another week-and-a-half until school is finally done. Of course teachers have to load us with big projects at the end of the year, but whatever. If I bug any of you on AIM at like 11 or later it's 'cause I'm finishing a project and wanna kinda talk to someone while I'm working. =P

On the subject of writing I do have a couple other ideas I could use, so hopefully soon I'll pick one that I like and finally be able to start writing.

That's about it. Just remember that your banners gotta be under 100KB -- that's what makes the page load slower, not the large pixels sizes.

That play is absolutely fantastic. One of my favorites by far. Don't even try to summarize it. Bunburying can really only be explained by watching the play. It's also so much better performed than read. I've been lucky enough to have seen it twice, the first time before I ever read it.

Cucumber sandwiches. Seriously. <3

It's like the entire reason I love Oscar Wilde.

I saw that play ages ago. Everyone knows it. I can't believe you've never heard of it before you studied it. I knew it from when I was a kid. Though in America it may not be as common.

Who said anything about not hearing about of before I read it? I knew about it years ago; I just hadn't read it until a couple weeks ago.
