Five things about moi
I got tagged with the "Five Things About Me" meme and have had loads of trouble getting it done, what with my ISP going down in the storm and all, but now, mea culpa, I'm getting it done.
1. I like to drop Latin, Greek or other foreign words and phrases into my teaching. Carpe diem! Ne oublie! (This is my Scots clan's motto. And it should be the motto of all involved in education.)
2. I HATE "reality TV" shows. I mean it. They are absolutely AWFUL. I don't like making fun of people who are blissfully unaware of how untalented they are, like that William Hmong or whoever he was. Donald Trump needs to go to a decent hairstylist.
3. I listen to lyrics in songs as well as to the music. I pretty much am not a fan of "new school" hip-hop or urban contemporary music, although I have pretty catholic musical tastes in about everything else. However, I really liked the group Arrested Development, and wish we had some of the same quality available now. But Jay-Z's Busweiser commercial sets my teeth on edge: "Show me what ya got, pretty lady! Show me what ya got, now mama! And wave and wave, and wave and wave...." Oooh, deep. I can hear the cash register ringing from here.
4. I am an obsessive book-buyer and reader.
5. I play guitar. A lot.
I now tag Mr. Teacher at learn me good, Alsoomse, and Mike in Texas.
