  • So apparently Wordie is replete with fellow spelling bee should-have-beens. Ah, it's good to be among friends. :-)

  • Oh, I did the same thing in the state spelling bee. Got all the way up to twelfth place, and was so nervous-- and so aware that I couldn't make any sounds such as "um"-- that I spelled "um" in the middle of the word.

    I was so sad, because I'd been sick the previous year and hadn't been able to compete, and that year was my last chance to make it to nationals... I knew how to spell "speciesism", I swear. It wasn't even hard! Just "species" with an "ism"! And I knew all the other words that came after my turn, too. Ah, my poor little thirteen-year-old heart was broken...

  • U, we share similar fates--the damned L. I nearly got myself to the Washington championship spelling bee once. Even got on local TV for the semifinals. And then I got a word that I absolutely knew how to spell--but my mouth went faster than my brain, and I dropped an "L" while spelling it. Such a tragedy.... *wiping tears*

  • I've only ever been in one spelling bee. I was stupid and overconfident and ended up embarrassing myself on the first word (I still remember, it was please). Spoke too fast, "p-e... I mean, p-l-e-a-s-e..." Too late, I lost. I coulda been a contenda. Never tried a bee again. Oh well, the baseball thing sounds fun. ;-)

  • No batting skills required--it was a great consolation for those of us who could neither throw nor hit a ball accurately.

    July 20, 2007

  • Sounds like fun, actually--as long as it didn't require batting skills!

  • Probably it was Mrs. Hall's invention. As I recall, the desks were bases and players moved around the bases as they spelled words correctly. Pretty simple. We were pretty simple! ;-)

  • I'm not sure I want to know what spelling-bee baseball is....

    July 20, 2007

  • Well, it is true: I have visited a few golf courses, and even *hit* some balls once.

    In third grade, we played spelling-bee baseball when it rained. It was the only time I ever was chosen first for any sports team!

  • Not even a quick visit? ;-)

    July 20, 2007

  • Golf links are green, but I do not golf. Perplexing.

    July 20, 2007

  • Maybe your visited links are green?

    July 20, 2007

  • Green. . .am I the only one who sees the green ones?

    July 20, 2007

  • Try clicking on the pretty blue ones and watch what happens. Ooooooh....

    July 20, 2007

  • No, I really am. What are all these glyphs all over the page? They puzzle me. But I like the blue ones, and the slanty ones. I wonder if anyone else has ever seen them, but I have no way of asking to find out.

  • Jen, I suspect that was a definition, not a personal statement. Perhaps it needed quotation marks. I thought it was a neat summation of the term. ;-) It sort of alludes to "Like flickr, but without the photos," which makes me laugh every time.

    July 20, 2007

  • Huh? You're on a completely text-based site. What have you been responding to the past 1,675 times? ;)

    July 20, 2007

  • I'm deaf and blind to language, but I respond to any other stimulus just fine. I like pretty colors.

    July 20, 2007

  • A self explanatory term if ever I saw one.
