    Thou blind fool, Love, what dost thou to mine eyes
    That they behold and see not what they see?
    They know what beauty is, see where it lies,
    Yet what the best is, take the worst to be.
    If eyes corrupt by overpartial looks,
    Be anchored in the bay where all men ride,
    Why of eyes' falsehood hast thou forgèd hooks,
    Whereto the judgment of my heart is tied?
    Why should my heart think that a several plot
    Which my heart knows the wide world's common place?
    Or mine eyes seeing this, say this is not
    To put fair truth upon so foul a face?
    In things right true my heart and eyes have erred,
    And to this false plague are they now transferred

    Thou blind fool love
    Sonnet 137
    by William Shakespeare

    I find the juxtapostition of the Shakespeare and Zappa quotes to be, well, tantalizing! ;D :tongue4:

    Well,

    I haven't heard from Yima since last week, so I guess it is all over.

    The Ebay auction has ended and we raised a few cents ( which I am not going to follow up, other than to send the winner the email address ).

    If I haven't heard from her by Monday I will be sad ( unlikely ) and will have to reveal to her my real identity and also introduce her to Bruce ( revenge is a dish best served cold )

    John

    Bill=William, as in Shakespeare. Sometimes I wonder about you ::) Then again, if I had my heart broken by Yima like you did, I'd miss the occassional joke as well :)
