For almost as long as I have known him, Duanne Scott has been running a meme called Pleasantly Distrubed Thursday. Actually today is only the third time, but since I've only known him about five weeks it's still true. One of these days (alledgedly next week) he will get a button for the meme, and then it will finally have some credibility. In the meantime we'll just make do.
I haven't tried writing a PDT post before because I am not at all disturbed, or random. My mind is like a steel thingamajig, but actually I sometimes enjoy just taking my mind off the hook and letting my fingers do the talking over the keyboard. It's a little like free writing, or free association - you really have no idea what you are talking about, and just have to hope your fingers are better spellars then yuo are.
I was a little afraid I might end up babbling about the weather, or bowel movements. Like old people do when they start talking, and seem to have disengaged their brains. But it seems that I can avoid the topic, although it would be nice to try and make a joke about playing scrabble and being "Inconsanant, and with no vowel movement".
But that would be a really sad joke, so I won't make it.
But I have been playing a lot of scrabble lately. I have discovered the Scrabble function on Facebook, and enjoy playing with people around the world. (Excluding USA and Canada)
I don't mean I don't like playing with people from North America, but I think that the game is Worldwide (Except for USA and Canada), probably for copyright reasons. I must admit it makes a change from all those videos you Americans watch on your blogs that I can't watch because "This video is blocked in your country for copyright reasons."
I have been enjoying the scrabble, but I hate it when my opponent forfeits. I mean what kind of victory is a forfeit? Here I am winning, and relying on breaking my own high score by laying down my last 7 tiles to make "JAUNDICED" across a triple letter and score 122 points, plus your penalty tiles, and you forfeit your last move. Talk about a hollow victory. The only acceptable time to forfeit is when you are beating me by 300 points, and suddenly need the toilet. Then you can forfeit. Because we both know I would have made a come-back, and it's your own fault for not having a stronger bladder anyway.
Oh wow. One step away from talking about bowel movements anyway. Go figure.
