Today I took my Latin II final which represents a substantial weight off of my shoulders. It’s weird not to have the nagging sense that somewhere, somehow, i should really be reciting conjugational or declensional paradigms.
My efficient professor offered to grade it there on the spot and I walked out knowing that I got 97 points on it. Not too shabby. That locked me an “A” in the class.
I celebrated with a pho meal and trip to Target with my beautiful girlfriend.
Brian Blessed, scenery not being chewed
Last night instead of cramming, we watched the 1976 mini-series “I, Claudius” – it was at least in the Latin vein. Major cool part: Vultan from “Flash Gordon”, Brian Blessed, playing a (to my mind, rather portly) Augustus. Primus inter pares needs to be primus intering the gym.
I say, upholding the customs of the elders is paramount!
Tonight I hope to relax a bit and head to bed early.
Or maybe enjoying a tender family moment with Ming:
“with a mighty flash” indeed…
