“Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more,
Men were deceivers ever,
One foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never.”  – Much Ado About Nothing

A Hollywood screenwriter, producer, director, etc. decided on his two week vacation two years ago to make an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing on the fly, and in his kitchen.  It came out in select theatres this past Friday.  As St. Louis isn’t very select we didn’t get it, and I haven’t seen it, but I’ve heard so much about the darn thing on the news and from friends that I thought I’d just blog today with one of my favorite quotes from the play.  This quote got me through years of college dating.

    My favorite quote from ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ is:
    “I can see he’s not in your good books,’ said the messenger.
    ‘No, and if he were I would burn my library.”

    That one came up a few times when considering what to do about a now former, problem co-worker.

      That’s a great quote! I’ll have to remember it. And I’m glad to hear the problem co-worker is now officially “former” – wish I could say that about some of my colleagues…
