Arto is in Finland with his wife right now, and I’ve been cooped up in their place, housesitting/catsitting and working insanely hard on a preview video for my new MCAT course, so in honor of our first perfect square FNITN in months (7×7=49… the last one was 6×6=36), I’ll be sitting this one out.
However, if you want to take these notes Amb, Mark, Fannie and I have compiled, and go to town with your own FNITN-style descriptions of them in the comment section, I’d love to see it and it just might brighten my day!
Happy Friday, everyone!
