Heat...the English summer has arrived and, in the same way that no-one here can cope with snow in winter, the country has ground to a halt, with roads melting, rail tracks buckling and my wretched office fire alarm going off every ten minutes, triggered by the thunder flies! Who knew?

Apoptosis (from Ancient Greek ἀπόπτωσις "falling off") is a process of programmed cell death that occurs in multicellular organisms. Biochemical events lead to characteristic cell changes (morphology) and death.

Despite the meaning of the word, I find it funny, though horrific, too. I first encountered this word when playing Metal Gear Solid, and it's stuck with me ever since.

Indecision: Inability to make a decision quickly. My word because I feel indecisive about going to my friend's house today. I'm in pain and I'd rather just spend half the day in bed and the other half moping about my house.

Bass: That note, the deep resonance of lower frequency notes, which makes my heart beat in time to the rhythm. Bass is my word of the day because I managed to play a little, and it made me happy.
