Magic Shake-Ball

Dear Magic Shake-Ball:

I handed my grades in two weeks ago. At what point does my "therapeutic Reality TV viewing" cross over into my "pathetic excuse to avoid writing"?


"He is dead, Caesar,
Not by a public minister of justice,
Nor by a hired knife, but that self hand
Which writ his honor in the acts it did
Hath, with the courage which the heart did lend it,
Splitted the heart."
(Antony and Cleopatra, 5.1.19-24)

Uh oh. This doesn't bode well for my future as a "Real Housewives"/"Tori and Dean" binger. Antony killed himself after gorging on food, sex and Egyptian booze. He definitely was not doing well at his day job. Or maybe the Shake-Ball is telling me to pitch an idea for a reality show called "Who Wants to Be Caesar?" or "Desperate Eunuchs" or "Queen-zillas." I just might get some writing done this summer yet!
