Shakespeare meme

My favorite bit from the Bard fits nicely with my dazed and shattered reactions to BSG tonight.

"Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty! make thick my blood;
Stop up the access and passage to remorse,
That no compunctious visitings of nature
Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between
The effect and it! Come to my woman's breasts,
And take my milk for gall, you murdering ministers,
Wherever in your sightless substances
You wait on nature's mischief! Come, thick night,
And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,
That my keen knife see not the wound it makes,
Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark,
To cry 'Hold, hold!'"

Witch: Why, how now, Hecate? You look angerly.

Hecate: Have I not reason, beldams that you are,
Saucy and Overbold? How did you dare
to trade and traffic with Macbeth
In riddles and affairs of death.


In other words:
Lady MacBeth's Unsex-Me speech was going to be MY quote.
Damn you Saucy and Overbold Witch!

Damn you Saucy and Overbold Witch!

Would you have me any other way? *flutters lashes*
