|IVC's "marquee," at Jeffrey & Irvine Center Drive|
You ignored her.
Instead the post was peppered with comments about the return engagement of the theatrical troupe Shakespeare-by- the Sea, which made their debut last summer. (They are scheduled to perform Hamlet on Friday August 1 and A Midsummer Night's Dream on Saturday August 2 in the Live Oak Terrace.)
Aspersions were cast, vigorous defenses rallied, rumors were promulgated. The usual.
Rebel Girl, despite her abiding interest in street safety, decided to investigate since readers seemed to be more interested in Shakespeare than in our dangerous intersection.
What follows is a result of her inquiry with the key figure in question, referred to by one commentator as "a Bio teacher."
"The Foundation is sponsoring the event using Foundation money. The President's Office is also involved in the sponsoring of these events. It is a College-wide endeavor."Regarding criticism lodged on this blog and elsewhere:
"Any whores and senseless villains, any gorbellied scullions, motley-minded rampallions, dread-bolted fustilarians, and qualling crook-pated dewberries" who want to criticize me for for donating my time to bring free Shakespeare to IVC and Irvine "art a general offence and every man should beat" them.So there.
If I took the time to think about them at all — as I am doing for the moment — I would find myself not troubled in the slightest by any of them, nor by any of their moronic whining, nor by any part of their existence, as they are each, in turn, "deformed, crooked, old and sere, Ill-faced, worse bodied, shapeless everywhere; vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind; stigmatical in making, worse in mind." Etc., etc.
Speaking for myself, and not stealing from Shakespeare, they "are numbskulls", they "can kiss my big Irish ass", and can "meet in the parking lot at twelve o-clock high" any day of the week (except for Fridays through Sunday, when I am not on campus. Or on Monday or Wednesday, as I have a class then). I find them to be, prima facie, axiomatically, brainless, self-centered children, not men or women, and I metaphorically spit on them."
Meanwhile, this afternoon, while sitting in traffic by the 7th most dangerous intersection in the county, Rebel Girl had an opportunity to read the IVC sign that squats there. Or at least she tried to.
WE CILIO ORA!
