Scrabble blast

Tonight I got beat at scrabble by two Germans. For those of you who know me, this is shocking news. We were playing in English. I can't believe it.

Also, I want to recommend everyone the film Magnificent Butcher. I can't seem to get many people to watch it, but I rank it with They Live as best film of all time.

One of the Germans, Markus, got a score of 185, which is pretty damn high. I formed the word "no" twice. It was cock shit.

The Germans (it's Markus and his girlfriend Carol) also refused to watch Magnificent Butcher, even though I did a very captivating dramatic reading of the synopsis (luckily, I had the movie on hand). Another friend of mine, Gail, was captivated by my dramatic reading. Maybe they just don't like kung fu movies.

Even though I lost, I had a lot of fun. We were at Southern Sun. We drank beer, and the Germans bought about three pounds of food. I took the lead early on with "badly", but was soon confronted with such gems as "revoker" and "scientologist". It was really incredible.

Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know about this. I must sleep for now, because I have much to do tomorrow. The Germans are nice people. I'll probably never play scrabble again.

Okay. I'll watch it.

But it wont be better than They Live.

I miss Southern Sun.

I haven't played Scrabble in ages. Shame on me, too -- love word games.

Huh, it's funny that we both posted Scrabble posts, even though I didn't read yours until just now. I've been getting beat lots at it by people whose first language is something else as well! What the hell is going on?
Anyway, my promise to call you still stands. I hardly ever do anything at night, which, I know, is when you do things, but I'll work harder at not being an old grandma.
