As I was waking up this morning, I thought to myself, “You know what I need to do? Go back and re-read the works of Shakespeare.” They’re available online for free and it would be nice to read Shakespeare’s plays when I am not being forced to read them and write book reports and take tests. I especially want to re-read his tragedies. In the tragedies, most of the main characters get themselves into trouble because they possess a character trait called hubris.
From Wikipedia: “In its modern usage, hubris denotes overconfident pride and arrogance. Hubris is often associated with a lack of humility, though not always with the lack of knowledge.”
Damn. Almost 400 years after his death, Shakespeare’s works are still relevant. By the way, I wonder if anyone is going to do anything special in 2016, the 400th anniversary of his death?

I’m getting my first haircut since Memorial Day week after work, so I’ll be late getting to my usual Wednesday Silly Goose stop after work. Time to run some errands and then get back to a fun afternoon of tracking down missing semicolons in PHP code.
