ALERT--My brain is absolutely dead! I've just finished up finals this week (lots of memorizing and crampy wrists from writing)...and over the past three days have put in about 22 hours of TA work. I'm posting some rather narcissistic "in the office" posts today, since I'm just sitting her grading. But you can kinda see my cute plaid dress :)
I have seen so many grade percentages, I'm dreaming in numbers :D On the plus side, however, my brain is also chock-full of swell historical information:
Bach's primary musical instrument to play was actually the organ.
The most powerful Ancient Assyrian queen was Semuramat, who ruled for her husband Shamshi-Adad V and her son Adad-Nirari III...get a load of those names!!!
Anne Boleyn refused to be the mistress of Henry VIII...which probably was the reason he decided to marry her...and later behead her.
Edith Wharton writes the most masterful social commentary in her novel, The Age of Innocence (gorgeous costumes in the movie, too!!!).
The Russian word for excellent is "molodyetz" :)
Have you learned anything new recently?!
