Lines on Repeat

Hamlet

I have Hamlet on the brain: “Words, words, words” and “I am but mad north-north-west: when the wind is southerly I know a hawk from a handsaw,” both from 2.2. (To be fair, “handsaw” is likely a corruption of a type of bird, but still.)

And hey kids: Don’t drink and get near a computer. (Also, “Hamlet” is good for you. Read it.)

    I saw a really cool backsaw one time that had a carved hawk’s head as a d-handle. Have occasionally wished I could remember just what it looked like.
