Sleep has been called temporary death, but there's so much that goes on

during that time of repose. While visiting that other world one might walk,

talk, grind teeth, and sometimes dream.

Your brain is more active while you're asleep than when watching television.

And that's even when you you don't walk or talk in sleep. No wonder our

language is rife in sleep-related idioms. You can sleep in, on, out, around,

with, and over. You can lose sleep over things.

You can go without food for a while but you can't cheat on sleep. It demands

its dues. According to a report, you would be 25% less alert on just an

hour's loss of sleep.

 

somniloquy (som-NIL-uh-kwee) noun

The act or habit of talking while asleep.

[From Latin somni- (sleep) + loqui (to speak).]

Today's word in Visual Thesaurus: http://visualthesaurus.com/?w1=somniloquy

Read about a man whose nighttime soliloquies sold as LP albums:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dion_McGregor

-Anu Garg (words at wordsmith.org)

"Somniloquy can occur in all stages of sleep (both dream and nondream

sleep), though individuals awakened while talking in their sleep will

often recall dreaming. Sleep talking usually does not result in

significant problems for individuals; however, it may be embarrassing

if noted by family or friends."

Sleep Talking Usually Not Serious; The Cincinnati Post; May 4, 2004.

    CXVII.

    Accuse me thus: that I have scanted all

    Wherein I should your great deserts repay,

    Forgot upon your dearest love to call,

    Whereto all bonds do tie me day by day;

    That I have frequent been with unknown minds

    And given to time your own dear-purchased right

    That I have hoisted sail to all the winds

    Which should transport me farthest from your sight.

    Book both my wilfulness and errors down

    And on just proof surmise accumulate;

    Bring me within the level of your frown,

    But shoot not at me in your waken'd hate;

    Since my appeal says I did strive to prove

    The constancy and virtue of your love.

Today's FORGOTTEN ENGLISH

Word of the Day:

ANOTHER RELEVANT WORD OF THE DAY:

Pyrrhic victory (PIR-ik VIK-tuh-ree) noun A victory won at too great a cost. [After Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, who suffered staggering losses in defeating the Romans.]

"With lawsuits multiplying like crazy and mutual accusations of stealing the election spiralling out of control, almost any result now looks as if it will be a Pyrrhic victory."United States: Whatever Will They Think of Next?; The Economist (London, UK); Nov 25, 2000.

"One more such victory and we are lost," exclaimed Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, as he described his costly success in the battle of Asculum in Apulia. With those words he gave us a metaphor to refer to a victory so costly that it's barely better than defeat. If we talk to those who lost their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives and other loved ones in war, every victory is a Pyrrhic victory. A war is perhaps the only occasion when killing a person is not just accepted but rewarded. If only we could learn to fight wars only with words.

CXVIII.

Like as, to make our appetites more keen,
With eager compounds we our palate urge,
As, to prevent our maladies unseen,
We sicken to shun sickness when we purge,
Even so, being tuff of your ne'er-cloying sweetness,
To bitter sauces did I frame my feeding
And, sick of welfare, found a kind of meetness
To be diseased ere that there was true needing.
Thus policy in love, to anticipate
The ills that were not, grew to faults assured
And brought to medicine a healthful state
Which, rank of goodness, would by ill be cured:
But thence I learn, and find the lesson true,
Drugs poison him that so fell sick of you.

CXIX.

What potions have I drunk of Siren tears,
Distill'd from limbecks foul as hell within,
Applying fears to hopes and hopes to fears,
Still losing when I saw myself to win!
What wretched errors hath my heart committed,
Whilst it hath thought itself so blessed never!
How have mine eyes out of their spheres been fitted
In the distraction of this madding fever!
O benefit of ill! now I find true
That better is by evil still made better;
And ruin'd love, when it is built anew,
Grows fairer than at first, more strong, far greater.
So I return rebuked to my content
And gain by ill thrice more than I have spent.

Some favorite pictures from my trip to England

October 2008

ON THE WAY TO STRATFORD-UPON-AVON (Shakespeare's birthplace)

I'm actually HERE!

 

holding an owl (He was heavy!) and learning about falcolnry at Shakespeare's mother's farm (Mary Arden)

 

the home of Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway

What women's shoes used to look like!  The "heels" were called "pedestals"--thus women had to be put up on their "pedestals."  The tour guide said they were very "tippy.

where Hamlet was being performed in Stratford:

next door at the pub called "The Dirty Duck":

Look what was written on the wall next to our table! (from Macbeth)

Hamlet House Bed & Breakfast!

The First Folio

Shakespeare's grave inside Holy Trinity Church where he was baptized

The statue of the court jester in the town square in Stratford.  There is a Shakespeare quote on each side of the statue.  Notice the ONE from Hamlet, of course!
