Cloudy today. Currently, it's 59˚F.

Yesterday I wrote a little over one thousand words on "The Green Abyss." It's a dream piece, which is to say it isn't a story in the commonly accepted sense. But it seems to be coming along well. I hope to finish it this afternoon.

I was beginning to think maybe I was reading too much into Sons of Anarchy, that maybe I was only imagining all those elements of Macbeth and Hamlet. Then we reached the end of Season Four, which has a two-part finale titled "To Be, Act 1" and "To Be, Act 2." Turns out, it seems to be public knowledge that the show's creator, Kurt Sutter, was inspired by Shakespeare, especially Hamlet.

But to my mind, — though I am native here
And to the manner born, — it is a custom
More honour'd in the breach than the observance.

For those of you who have been able make neither heads nor tails of the Benjanun Sriduangkaew/ RequiresHate/ Winterfox/ Etc. kerfuffle, here's a handy FAQ. Then again, if you have no idea what I'm talking about, you're a fortunate soul indeed and shouldn't follow that link.

Well, hello Sunshine. I wasn't expecting you today.
