Ah, glorious government holidays! Happy Fourth of July! Enjoy the day off, free street parking, copious amounts of barbequed meat, and beautiful displays of explosives.
That is… as long as your weather report doesn’t look like this:
Well I may not go to see the fireworks today, but in a few minutes I will watch the Germany vs. Italy semifinal match! I love Italy’s amazing Roman ruins, gelato, pasta, and shopping, but I’ve got my money on Germany. Good thing the weather conditions are better in Dortmund.
And, speaking of pasta, I was memorizing information about bacteria this morning (for the MCATs, of course), and I noticed that the names for the shapes of bacteria — cocci, bacilli, spirilla– sound strangely similar to those for pasta. Bacilli with tomato sauce, anyone? Ok, yes, the MCATs are making me crazy!
Time for some futbol!
