A meme!!!

What is a Meme?
Here there are some definitions:
A meme is:
  • An idea that, like a gene, can replicate and evolve.
  • A unit of cultural information that represents a basic idea that can be transferred from one individual to another, and subjected to mutation, crossover and adaptation.
  • A meme (pronounced /mēːm/) consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.

  • This a meme I found when I visited my friend Bertha's blog. We are going to experiment with our first meme... so here it goes.... I answered these questions about my life and I am going to pass them to some of you... later you will pass those same questions to 3 more classmates you would like to know more about.

    What were you doing 10 years ago?
    Ten years ago... 2008 now... so that was 1998. I was in my last year at LUZ and having my practice classes at Liceo Escolastico Andrades in Mcbo. I had already gotten married and was pregnant with my first son Leslie Enrique.
    5 things you have to do today:
    Today, I have two of my classes to teach.. I am also teaching teacher Patricia Charles's class. I have to go to the pharmacy to buy some medication for chicken pox. My son got it from my little son.
    Snacks I enjoy…
    I love chocolate. Specially Nutella. my favorite snack is to have nutella with bread.
    Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
    I would buy a house for my mom and another one for me. I would donate some of the money to a children or elderly institution and probably start my own language school. Of course, i will go on a vacation to a exotic place like Fiji.
    Three of my bad habits:
    Being strong headed sometimes... working too much...
    5 places I have lived:
    I haven't lived in many places... I lived in Ciudad Ojeda and Anaco once.
    5 jobs I have had:

      Time to describe someone else... :)

      Listen and watch the following video....

      Who are these people describing? 

      Read the following descriptions and discuss with your partners who are being described.

      1 She's absolutely adorable. I think she's very pretty, she makes me laugh a lot, um... she tells terrible jokes but I like the way she tells them. She's a bit naughty sometimes and I curse her when she gets me up at six o'clock in the morning, but when I hear her singing in the morning, well, all is forgiven. She can twist me round her little finger, of course. 

      2 He was very boring and predictable. The kind of person who remembered birthdays and anniversaries, but who made you angry because there was absolutely nothing spontaneous about him. His ideas of fun were so unadventurous. Well, the first few years were OK, but after that I'd just had enough. Reliable, stable, dependable, and boring. 

      3 Well, he's quite well-dressed and punctual. Sometimes he's cheerful and tells us jokes, but other times we have to do a lot of work. We don't really know him very well. Oh, I know he's married, but I've never met him socially or anything like that. He seems very professional. 

      4 I've never actually spoken to him. Mmm, I see him every day, of course, as he leaves his car and get in the lift to his office on the top floor. He's always terrible well-dressed, and he must wear expensive after-shave because you can still smell it ten minutes after he's gone.

      Tell your partners.. How would you describe:

      1. Your parents
      2. A teacher
