Dreams and visions

Survived my first lecture of the week. 
Forty 16 year olds from Aberdeen at 9:00 AM. 
(Thank God for Starbucks.) 
Prepped for days (okay, hours) to give a bang-up presentation on the stage history of A Midsummer Night's Dream, and all they wanted to do was talk about the fact that David Tennant's performing in Stratford this season -- and who, I might add, is not even in this season's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream...
But heck, what's not to love? And if it gets the kids excited, why not?
