And since I am dead, I can take off my head, to recite Shakespearean quotations.

which is to say, yes, I saw "Corpse Bride". (By the way, isn't it a bit creepy to describe it as "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride"?) Not bad. No "The Nightmare Before Christmas" sad to say.

And now, since I'm a joiner:

therefore was I created with a stubborn outside,
with an aspect of Iron, that when I come to woo
ladies, I fright them: but in faith Kate, the
elder I wax, the better I shall appear. My
comfort is, that Old Age, that ill layer up of
beauty, can do no more spoil upon my face. Thou
hast me, if thou hast me, at the worst; and thou
shalt wear me, if thou wear me, better and
better: and therefore tell me, most fair
Katherine, will you have me?

- Henry V, Act 5, Scene II

When you see this on your flist, post some Shakespeare in your journal.
