    don't worry. the chances of me actually getting tickets are slim considering they were raffled off months ago and scalping is not possible. but i think just being in Germany for it will be fun. and some of the tickets still haven't been sold off.

    Your mom!! Ohhhhhhhhhhhh :laugh:

    I dunno. I'll probably end my job a few weeks before school starts so I can have some free time. You know, people to do, places to see.

    I'm not damota (yet...) but I'll answer. Ecuador!! ok I wish. But I'll say Argentina. Their team is gonna be tough to beat next summer.

    Edit: Maybe DaMota and I are one and the same after all...good call on Argentina.

    Depends how many interviews I get. If a whole bunch, then I'm going to be working over the summer. If no more, then I'll be spending the few remaining dollars in my bank account to go abroad and work on my Arabic...

    OH I thought you already got tickets for it. Yes I have been trying to get tickets as well, looks like they are at outrageous prices now.. we should have planned it earlier.. Good luck with finding tics!

    P.S. Please let me know if you really can still get tics at reasonable price. If so, I am gonna plan a trip there as well..

    Montreal, word up. Everyone should come to Montreal.

    As for Germany, Argentina will choke as usual and Brazil will take it home, as usual.

    You mightbe right, but as an Argentinian I will have to be tortured before admitting something like that, lol. We are just too crazy when it comes to soccer. :D

    My family is from Ecuador and the whole country is psyched when we just qualify. :) Maybe all that training at high-altitude will give them a leg up on the competition...

    I'm far from Argentinian and I've been a fan of their national team since I was 3 years old!!! Diego Maradona is and has been my hero since that age too. :)

    Congrats Prowler and BooMed! I just got married this past August! It's tons of fun, make sure you spend plenty of time planning and enjoying the process, and don't get too stuck on the application sequence.

    Italy would be great for a honeymoon (we went there for Study Abroad). If you do go, make sure you schedule plenty of time at the less-touristy places, they can be more romantic. Rome, Florence, and Venice are great to see as tourists, but smaller, out-of-the-way places are great too. I loved the Cinque Terre, in the northwestern region near France.

    Headed to China for at least a couple weeks with the family, and I'm going to try and stretch it five more or so by teaching English there.

    I've also heard a lot of amazing things about Cinque Terre...wish I could make my first trip to Europe this summer. Maybe down the line? When's our next big chance to go besides summer after MS1?
