Friday Five:

1. Are you going to school this year?

Only if working in my children's school counts.

2. If yes, where are you going (high school, college, etc.)? If no, when did you graduate?
B.A. 1988, M.A. 1990, dropped out of Ph.D. program in 1993.

3. What are/were your favorite school subjects?
English and history.

4. What are/were your least favorite school subjects?
Anything involving practical math, including chemistry and geology. (Oddly, I loved astronomy.) I liked theoretical math but give me a word problem and I'm lost.

5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite?
I have been in love with more teachers than any other class of human being. My very favorite was the single most influential person on my life for a twenty-year period. She taught me how to think critically, how to read multiple layers of allegory at the same time, and how important passion for one's subject matter can be.

ashinae has me playing Severus to her Lucius. I am going to go to Hell for extra millennia for this, aren't I.

Am going to go have lunch with gblvr so am once again behind on e-mail and feedback, though not, thankfully, on work, as my editors' computers are working once again! For anyone who hasn't checked out the results of TORN's 7-Up LOTR product placement challenge, this is a must-see; make sure to look at the Boromir-Faramir toast at the bottom right!

Oh yeah, and the very pretty Tom Welling. Bring on the Red Kryptonite.
