Friday Memes I

A long long time ago, we got tagged for a meme by Chorus. More recently, we got tagged again. Here's the older of the two!

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
Each player answers the questions about himself or herself.
At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Ten years ago:
Ah, 1998! I remember it well. The big thing that year was that I started work at the University Bookstore, in the warehouse. It was, I must say, a fine place to work, with fine people.

Five things on today's "to do" list:
1. Mark some Latin quizzes (see below)
2. Carry out (Perform? Do? Answer?) the second meme (also see below. And above, eventually)
3. Read some more medieval Latin sources on the Battle of Varna.
4. Begin to ponder contemplating the possibility of writing a report on the pottery found this past June.

Things I'd do if I was a billionaire:
Two Words: Generalissimo Chunklets.

Three bad habits:
1. I put off marking.
2. I put off doing memes.
3. I lose nail clippers at a truly astonishing pace.

Five places I've lived:
1. Here!
2. In another place, also here, but a different part of here, if you catch my drift.
3. Chicago, Illinois.
4. Ypsilanti, Michigan.
5. Given the amound of time, overall, that I've spent there, I'm going to mention Ossaia, Italy.

Five jobs I've had:
1. Bookstore Clerk
2. Latin Instructor
3. Various sorts of Archaeologist
4. Operatic Supernumerary
5. Van Driver (for a local used-clothes-collecting charity)

Five People I'm Tagging:
Given the age of this meme, and the fact that most of the blogs I read have already dealt with it, I shall pass on tagging this time!
