Let's deliquesce and get squibbery!

Over at Throwing Things, they are very serious -- and funny! -- about the big National Spelling Bee, which can be followed at the website, and, tomorrow, on ESPN. I've set the TiVo. I love the spelling bee!



I've always been a fan of the Spelling Bee and even advanced as a participant beyond our local qualifier to the Wisconsin Reigional Bee. As a follower of the Bee for some time, I don't think there will ever be a more stunning moment than that which occurred in last year's edition when the kid fainted while getting ready to spell his word, regained consciousness, and then went on to spell the word correctly!

I love the spelling bee too. When I saw commercials for it I got so excited. I'll be doing a lot of laundry tomorrow in preparation for a trip to Portugal -- what a great thing to sit and watch while folding clothes!!

Have you seen the movie Spellbound? It is one of my favorites.

Katie: It is a good opportunity to do household tasks, now that you mention it. I'm going to take everything out of my closet and put it back in again, properly!
