While I was in Mexico, books we are all familiar with translated to Spanish.
Alan Rickman reads Shakespeare’s Sonnet 130
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
And my day is made.
I’ve been pinning ideas for a Day of the Doctor party, but we have no friends in our new home state. Who wants to come over on Saturday?
I pronounce it J-AHHHH-Sten. Like Justin but with an ah sound.

True facts time: if we took out all the sexist bones that ACTUALLY ARE in his body, this is what he’d look like:
