> I picked one of the top bingo stems that I hadn't yet studied, EINRST, and noticed that
> ENTIRES is a word.

Aw, how cute.


> That's like Joel Sherman missing MUCOIDS.

A reference to "Word Freak" and my assumption that MUCOID has something to do with mucous, and that Joel has some type of issue with mucous related to his GI issues.

Awesome film. And if you haven't seen Kieran in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" yet, STOP READING THIS AND GO SEE IT NOW!!!


> I pulled the right tiles to go with my high-probability leave for SEAGIRT

Wow--that word doesn't even look familiar to me. Is it even good?


> But there would be no such joy against Ms. Nees...

Cuz her name is Joy Nees--get it?


> against Jean McArthur, who has never eaten a fast-food hamburger

Is this still true?


> and for no other reason than her strength as a Scrabble player, I assure you

Hmmm...


> I had some time to sit and study and catch up on how my man Tiger was doing in Augusta

Tiger Woods is no longer "my man", after all his foolishness.


> I was worried that I might lose some serious ratings points from this encounter

Already worried about rating?


> arranging my socks on the dashboard so that they would bake more properly

Baking still works, but I've added hanging (on the clothes hanger hooks) for added freshification.


> I was more disappointed that I couldn't find a machine that sold Coke cans for 50 cents

These are REALLY hard to find these days.


> It was till early, and I thought about going to a club, or maybe getting a massage

Seven years later, I have no memory of every having gone to a strip club or gotten a massage in Oklahoma City--how the heck did I miss that???


> My next game was against Gene Roop. There's a pun in there somewhere, but I can't seem to
> find it.

Dammit, I still can't find it (Poop is just juvenile), but now with LJ I'm sure somebody can think of something.


> I scooted on out of there and raced down I-35 to my favorite Colombian restaurant

Casa Vieja, still my favorite in the country.
