So, I went into work today to stock some things for halloween, right? And we have the requisite evil motion-sensored baby that screams and cries and sounds sickeningly realistic, but also new animatronic hands that don’t actually stop moving when you turn them “off”.

So I mentioned to my manager about this “five nights for reddy” thing that everyone has been talking about, and he goes, “Have you played this videogame, ‘portal’?” And we talk briefly about the emergence of co-operative gameplay and watching games with each other and the playing of survival horror games together…

And then the lights start flickering. A lot. Like, spookily, out of nowhere, all across the store, in that sort of 3/4-time horror movie pattern, not a 4/4 strobe. Long story short, we evacuated the store, spent half an hour in the sweltering heat outside, and then spent the next three hours trying to stock/recover/clean everything we could in the dark of the retail with only the emergency lights and the distant hope of sunlight guiding our way.

do you ever, just, think of shakespeare (a man moored in history and echoing through it, a phrase, a flash of light and surety in the theatre, a moment of recognition, a string of words, any and all of these things), and feel so, so grateful to be alive?
