High-scoring word of the morning: CHI (250 points) – against Angela V. [two 5W] Hmm… Teunis said he was crashing out at Kailee’s at 5:20 AM, as per his latest entry. But he also seems to be here sleeping not two feet from me! Maybe it’s a brilliant magic hologram which looks very real! I’m […]

DAMN YOU, MR. CREEP! / Left and right

July 31, 2010

I just missed the 410, but the 405 was luckily right behind it; unfortunately, I discovered that a lens was missing from my Fit-Overs, so I had to toss those. Got to the usual meeting place a minute or so before Eric; as he said, “You’re here before 6:30 and so am I! What’s going […]

Art, drinking games, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, and Superstore

Rainwear, hats smelling like smoke, WANTON not being WONTON

July 30, 2010

High-scoring word of the morning: RAINWEAR (192 points) – against Sandra T. [two 4W] Got Candy’s package today – the only problem is that the Manchester United hat smells like cigarette smoke.

Pepto-Bismol, Vitamin C, finding corkscrew, French fries, onion rings

July 29, 2010

After waking up, I decided to go to the pharmacy next door to get some Vitamin C and Pepto-Bismol. I was running out of both items, and was pleased to discover that the Pepto was more than twice the size of the bottle which I bought from Save-On a while ago. The Vitamin C tablets […]
