En attendant Bérubé

by Henry on July 25, 2006

Le Blog Bérubé “last Friday”:http://www.michaelberube.com/index.php/weblog/abf_friday_bonus_edition/

bq. I will therefore postpone the next installment of Irish Blogging (Beckett’s _Murphy_ is on tap for Monday) and devote the day to promiscuous linkdumping and an installment of our ever-popular Arbitrary but Fun stuff.

Le Blog Bérubé “yesterday”:http://www.michaelberube.com/index.php/weblog/thanks_for_the_memories/

bq. Today was supposed to be Beckett Day on this blog, but we interrupt our brief foray into Irish Literature Blogging to bring you this important Lieberman Bulletin.

I think we’re beginning to get the joke …

Update: and “today”:http://www.michaelberube.com/index.php/weblog/blogging/

bq. One more thing while I’m working away on my Beckett post (which I will begin writing real soon, I promise).

What are we doing here, that is the question.

So that’s what Senator Pat Roberts is doing with the inquiry into the use of the WMD intelligence.

In the meantime, let us try and converse calmly, since we are incapable of keeping silent.

We are not saints, but we have kept our appointment. How many people can boast as much?

That’s the idea, let’s ask each other questions.

Hi,

Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes, it’s awful.

At this place, at this moment of time, all mankind is us, whether we like it or not.

Have a nice day,
Antti

And don’t forget the brilliant stage direction, they do not move.

What am I to do, what shall I do, what should I do, in my situation, now proceed? By aporia pure and simple?

He speaks to me again! If this goes on much longer, we’ll soon be old friends.

We could hang ourselves.

It’ll give us an erection!

Headline in today’s Guardian:
“Beckett plays down hopes of breakthrough”
http://politics.guardian.co.uk/foreignaffairs/story/0,,1828628,00.html

OK, OK, not that Beckett. And I suppose ‘plays’ is a verb.

yan: That’s funny, but I feel worse about myself for laughing at it.
