In honor of the ides of March (March 15th):
Who is it in the press that calls on me?
I hear a tongue shriller than all the music
Cry "Caesar!" Speak, Caesar is turn'd to hear.
Beware the ides of March.
What man is that?
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.
Julius Caesar Act 1, scene 2, 15-19
I found this too and it made me laugh...If Historical Events had Facebook Statuses:
However, thanks to my Latin/English teaching mama, I know that it should be "at the domus tonight" NOT "at the casa tonight." Julius Caesar (not Ceasar) was a Roman NOT a Spaniard!
Also, did you know that we celebrated National Pi Day yesterday?
I know what Pi is but totally missed the significance of celebrating it on March 14... 3/14...3.14...
A co-worker had to spell it out on my white board for me...D-oh!
