Come Hell or high water, I am with you

America:What is your favourite place to eat?

Of all time? Too many to pick from. On a semi-regular basis? There’s one or two sushi places by my house in LA that I love to frequent. Here at school, there’s one solitary semi-adequate Japanese restaurant in walking distance which I thank the gods for every day. 

Australia:Do you have any quirks when speaking?

Too many. Elongation of vowels, archaisms, slipping into stupid accents, and I’m sure there are more that are slipping my mind. 

Kenya:What is your favourite wild animal?

I really always have liked crocs and reptiles. When I was little I was determined to get a leopard gecko.

Allison Gross, Vernon Hill
Allison Gross, “the ugliest witch in the north country”, allured the hero into her bower and made violent love to him, offering him various rich gifts if he would be her true love. He repulsed her advances three times, and at the third refusal she blew on a grass-green horn, struck him with a silver wand and spun around three times muttering ill words, so that his strength failed and he fell senseless to the ground, transformed into “an ugly worm”. Eventually a fairy of the Seelie Court passes by and disenchants him.
[Katherine Briggs, A Dictionary of Fairies, 1977]

Today is Shakespeare’s 450th birthday! To celebrate, I thought I’d share a photo I took a while ago when I was lucky enough to visit his grave in Stratford-upon-Avon.
