This thing where I don't get to asleep until after the dawn chorus starts: it has to stop.

On the other hand, I was intentionally awake until a bit after 3 reading "Antony and Cleopatra" by William Shakespeare. So it's not like I can claim insomnia kept me up for more than a couple of hours, really.

It's a Guternberg edition, with many typos that were left in because so many people consider them to be canonical now, but I do wonder if it isn't a more up to date typo that has Antony urging Cleopatra to ride his triumphant pants.

It's no dirtier than the intended "triumphant parts", but it worries me that I might have missed the intention if I didn't have to think about pants first.

Triumphant pants - sounds like a sportsperson's lucky undies!

Hmmm.. I think I must re-read that because I don't recall any triumphant parts, at least not man bit triumphant parts.
:P
