If Macbeth had a Live Journal...

Imagine Macbeth and Lady Macbeth in 2006. Considering that Macbeth has the sense of false security that he cannot be defeated or killed, what do you think he might have as a post on his Live Journal or Blog? What about Lady Macbeth? What would she say on her Facebook? Choose one of these characters. Be creative and somewhat accurate regarding the information you know about them thus far. If you want to make up a bonus five points (for those that missed some last week), this is the opporunity.

So I definitely neeed these 5 points! I flippin love ya B! I choose Lady Macbeth:

So gah, I haven't updated in forever, so here goes...Sir Macbeth and I have been up to a lot lately. I am now Queen! It has been a long and stressful journey, but I am glad to be here. The hubby has been freakin out lately, but he is just under a little guilt, I guess. I am starting to freak out..once the men take care of everything I will feel a little bit better, I hope. Well I have to go get ready to look beautiful, it's not easy being a gorgeous queen!!

Considering their age, I doubt either of them would have a livejournal or facebook... but we can pretend. I doubt either of them would say much about anything because they would be too nervous about getting caught. If they did say anything, they would be taking the risk of having Fleance or someone else getting on his computer and seeing it and wanting Macbeth dead. So, I'm sure they would be pretty quiet about it and just go on as if nothing had happened.

If Macbeth had a facebook, it would be very odd. He wouldn't display his evil thoughts and deeds obviously. Instead, he would appear to be a honest and brave king...without flaws. He would obviously have some self-absorbed comments on there but he would also have comments about his victims as if he missed them terribly.

Okay well I don't have facebook or a live journal or anything but if I was Macbeth I would write in my journal about my conscience. I would write about my plans when I become king. I would not write about any of the people I had killed or the dagger dream. You have to watch what you write on the internet because you never know who will read your post! Like Horhay (sorry I have no idea how to spell that guys name!!!)

i think if Macbeth had a live journal he would talk about his new status as king. he would probably brag a little bit but he wouldn't say anything about the murders because he has far to much guilt and is scared he will get caught. Lady Macbeth might write about how she is annoyed at her husband for always being a coward.

If Lady Macbeth were to have a live journey, I believe she would express her innermost thoughts: thoughts of evil, revenge, and pure manipulation. I believe Lady Macbeth would grow very fond of an online journey, seeing that she doesnt seem to have someone in her
own life she can really talk to about her feelings. This journal would grant her the opportunity to talk about anybody and everybody she wanted to.

Hey yall...this is Macbeth. I had a strange day today. My wife wants me to kill the King! I wasn't going to do it, but then I thought what would Chuck Norris do? So I went to Chucknorrisfacts.com and found the courage to kill the king. I decided to kill him in his sleep because like Chuck Norris says "You know how they say if you die in your dream then you will die in real life? In actuality, if you dream of death then I will find you and kill you."

Neither of them would have a live journal. They are much to sophisticated to do that. If they did they would write about stuff that most people couldn't understand.

Big Bonus Points to Max... love the actual journal pic !

First of all I doubt Macbeth would have a livejournal or blog. If hes cutting people in half hes really not emo enough for that. If lady macbeth had one it would contain every piece of the murders and the police would find it and arrest them both for the crime. Livejournals are dumb.

Macbeth says:

I killed 3 men today. No, they didn't "do" anything to me, but they were in the way. You know how it goes when you're king. People just bother you...and you kill them. So if you're in my kingdom, and you're reading this, you know what to do--or should I say what not to do--to live till tomorrow. All right, so with that disclaimer in place, I'm off to "rule" my kingdom.
These have been thoughts by <==+Macbeth+==>

If i was Macbeth and had a livejournal i would write two entries one where i would only allow certain people to look at like Lady Macbeth and the other one would be for everyone to read. In
the first one i would write everything i had done. I killed the king and also hired someone to kill Banqueo and his son because they knew the prophecy that i would kill the king and his son would become king. But his son got away. Also that i feel really guilty for doing all of this and that i wish i could take it back. On the other i would write that i am enjoying being king and that i plan on making life better in the kingdom for everyone. Also i would write of the plans on how i would make it better. I am going to clean up the streets and use some of the money in the kingdom to build small houses for the homeless. - BakerB3
