Funny Names in the News 49, where we take a vacation

I'm sure this is what it looks like for Arto and Leslie in Finland right now, WINK ;)

I’m sure this is what it looks like for Arto and Leslie in Finland right now, WINK 😉

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!

    And I have to say I’m a tad sad that I missed the chance to write about Prince. Perhaps I may end up going back to that one next FNITN.

    Best of luck with the MCAT video!

    I’m sorry, I can’t make any sense of those notes, even clicking the links. Especially clicking the links.

    It’s like, “You’ll never guess who fhghslk has shgjfhging in this new dhfeury adaptation of whwhewkjtk’s groundbreaking ghjfhgpic hgjfhgfjgw jskdfjdkdd and in other news hfjghfjwlruotyitr was seen on the set of the new djdgjh series fgtytwe qrwtrew meanwhile, in rugby hjhjdfhjd drove the jkjfkdjk in an unexpected jkjkpouulj putting the Wyertey woireuis in line for a run at the uoyiuoyberry triouiyopopy trophy the first time since 1987 that ghjhdjhfd iopuopu has wuwierrwe to finish 2nd in the ytoiuotoyy league bristwriongton weryuwwp and rounding up today’s top ghdjspeio opoyitoiy was seen in a tender tete a tete with actor and singer iyotiyotu qrtwrtewew and that’s a wrap.”

    We all know this is what it really looks like where they are: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sauna_2.jpg

    Hopefully Arto is classy enough to build a savusauna (smoke sauna) for his lovely wife.

    For anyone who doesn’t get why I’m talking about saunas, get cultured: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnish_sauna.
