It’s exam time again, and while it’s great for me because I have lots of work helping all my students get ready, it’s unfortunate on the whole “entertaining story front”. Because truthfully, the Spanish language as a whole? Not really that amusing.
So I hunted around and found a number of different “A to Z” memes. But instead of just filling them out as they are, I combined them all and then picked the prompt I felt like writing about for each letter. Because I’m like that. So here we go.
Accent, Available/Single, Age-Being the shape-shifter that I am, I tend to take on the accent of whoever’s around me. Being the Spanish Maestro that I am, I can also do a mean impression of Mandy Patinkin in the “Princess Bride” when he says, “Hello. My name is IÃ±igo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
Booze, Best Friend, Birthday-My birthday is October 8,the very best day of the whole entire year. I am very much a person who likes to push the edge of the envelope, and this I attribute to being a Libra
If you’ve ever seen the visual representation of the Libra’s Zodiac sign, you know that it is a set of scales. And the scales are always perfectly balanced. But in my opinion that picture should always have a giant asterisk underneath it and a note that says, “Warning: the state of balance shown here represents the Libran ideal, not their day-to-day experience.”
Because, while I may occasionally reach the state of perfectly balanced scales in my life, as soon as I do I think, “OK, well this is cool. Now, I wonder what happens if I do this?” and then I purposely unbalance my scales in as dramatic and chaotic a way as I can imagine, and then see if I can get back to my previous state of balance.
At least I’m never boring.
Chore I Hate, Cake Or Pie, Career-I consider my vocation in this world to be that of “Spreader of Joy”.
Dogs Or Cats, Drink Of Choice, Dad’s Name-Coca-Cola, AKA “The Elixir Of Life”. I have practically created my own religion with the rituals and practices I’ve formed around this precious liquid life. Seriously. Just ask my husband.
Essential Electronics, Essential Item You Use Every Day, Essential Item To Bring To A Party-Well clearly the answer to ALL of these is, “My BlackBerry”. [Read more…] about The A to Z of Me
