PhD has become the new acronym for b****, which is bad because I just got accepted to a PhD program that I may start in the fall if I don't get called off a waitlist for vet school and I really don't want to A. work with people like these B. become a self absorbed B**** like them. boo on you Dr. B**** for giving the majority of hard working and smart women who earned a PhD a bad rep. HopefulAG- I HATE, LOATHE, DETEST verizon. They SUCK. I have spoken, the end. variegata-Italy should have won that game. How many shots did they have? A ton? Geez. And New Zealand had one...the whole game!!!! But I am the type to root for the underdogs so I was happy for NZ, their goalie was awesome. SoBeVet-The French need to get over themselves. I bet they are doing this for attention. Didn't someone form Mexico start something like this at the beginning of the tournament? What ever happened with that...nothing. What probably going to happen with the French? Nothing. But the whole thing is kinda funny in a this-is-pathetic-for-such-a-highly-ranked-team-and-I'm-glad-I'm-not-French-because-this-is-embarrassing way. GellaBella-Her dissertation defense was only 30 min!? I had a vet school interview that lasted longer than that, geez and where's my PhD or even vet school acceptance? twelvetigers-a rant is not enough to express anything about being let into vet school...you would need a book, a book so big with so many pages this book by itself could fill the library of congress. I finally have a mini rant-I went out to the store to get MMs for the Brasil and Ivory Coast game (in case i haven't made it clear, I love and am in love with soccer. I've been playing since I was 3, watched every qualifying match and haven't missed a whole game this tournament. Soccer is essentially my religion) and saw a turtle in the middle of a very busy road, tucked into his little shell waiting to finish crossing the road. So being the turtle lover I am, I even wrote my undergrad thesis on turtles, I pulled over, got the turtle from the road, bought him to the other side and was rewarded with a ticket for relocating the turtle. Yes I know the turtles where I live are endangered...all the more reason for me to move the turtle so it wouldn't get crushed by a stupid teenager and the species can live on through the destruction of their habitat by us humans. Thanks cop, thanks. On a side note, I'm watching the Brasil and Ivory Coast game and the cheers for Brasil are finally but only periodically overpowering the horns. Very refreshing for the ears.
