Huzzar!

PADGE!

This morning I found my cat's name in my scrabulous rack. Almost as much fun as winning Bazlotto.

BTW, I was recommended a new blog the other day, and now I recommend it to you, especially to you mothers of children and anyone within or post-PhD. It's called Lost in a Reverie. Enjoy. Be warned -- there are heart-wrenching bits, especially if you follow her link to her partner's writing.

The cat's name is...

wee?


I thought it was pooter or podge. I suppose liege is a sorta nice name. As long as its not called Aborting, that would be really embarrassing when you had to call him home.

Oh, who are you mercilessly crushing in that Scrabulous game? Is that 2 Bingoes I see?

Thanks, also, for the link.

Heh, yes, TWO bingoes. I'm mercilessly crushing one of my book design students. He wanders in and out of the Book Stud in between moves, I think he has a laptop in his workspace. Last game was very close, so he was bouncing in. This time he's looking a bit droopy, poor dear.

My pleasure, peoples. I thank the friend who gave me her link in the first place.

And don't worry, Fifi. I make those sorts of mistakes ALL the time.

SJ gave me the addy to your blog. So glad she did, I'm catching up with many of your posts. Thanks for linking my blog, and your kind comments.

You have been blogrolled!

Hooray! Interconnectedness!

Fiest? Oh come on!

That word was not mine, I swear. I try to play Plain English scrabble, using words like WEE.

Oooh, wonderful linkingness. Many thanks.

That Scrabble interface is the best. I get very peeved when the Nine letter word puzzle in Teh Age allows bogus words. I've started to allow myself some of them in anticipation.

I am in awe of your scrabble prowess. I suck.
