language games :: thanksgiving 2011 will be known as the holiday that resurrected scrabble in our home. omar and i took a bit of a hiatus (years in fact) because it seemed to bring out the worst in us. we’ve grown. omar went out on “jurors” the other night. hmm…which spell check just informed me he spelled incorrectly. his version had 7 letters and thus a 50 point bonus. i think we need another hiatus.
language accents :: while riding along in the car today we listened to npr, and the newscaster speaking had a british accent. elisha pipes up, “well, THAT guy is rude.” after a little probing it became clear that the accent was the culprit. hilarious.
language quotes :: yes, i said these words yesterday, “please don’t spin baby jesus in the salad spinner.” the half of the table that was playing with the nativity merged with the half of the table that was playing with kitchen things and thus the spinning.
