Summer Latin Institute - DAY 11, 8:16 a.m.

Week 3 begins. Second weekly exam this morning. Unit 9 this afternoon: comparison of adjectives (regular and irregular), comparison with quam and the ablative of comparison, ablative of degree of difference, comparison of adverbs (regular and irregular) and the partitive genitive. Whew! But you're used to that by now.

Yesterday was Gay Pride Day in New York City. I carried my cell phone to the parade as usual, but my Moreland & Fleischer for the first time. I took a couple of calls from students with Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, or marching tunes blaring in the background and scantily clad go-go boys dancing on floats. I think that's a 40-year Institute first, but if anyone knows otherwise, please let me know via comment or email.

More soon...
