( ...Memeage! )Sorry, I just couldn't resist. ^^;
In another news, something amusing happened to me in Latin class today. We were playing one of those stupid games where you have to divide into teams, in order to see how well we had learned our participles. Now, in that class, a lot of the passages we translate are in fact just Cicero denouncing Catiline. You know, like he does. So, just to be contrary, my team decided they wanted to be called "Catiline's Supporters." Given this, I attempted to sit out the game, but unfortunately, our instructor, Alice (who, by the way, is only a Classics major in her last year--though lest it sound like I'm disparaging her, I really think quite well of her) was making everyone take a turn.
So the following exchange took place:
Me: "I refuse to conspire against the Republic." (I really did say exactly that, as I'm sure you won't be surprised to learn. XD;)
The Class: (Something along the lines of "...", "What?", and "Can she do that?")
Alice: (To paraphrase:) Um, well, I'll make up a separate sub-team. *writes "Catiline non-supporters" on the board* Pause. "Cicero would be proud." (She really did say that last bit.)
So the point - which I did get - did not go to Catiline's supporters. Admittedly, the whole thing was rather ridiculous and petty, but it was greatly amusing as well.
...I promise I'll get back to Serious Business in the next post. XD;
