MST3K - fish

The Inside

I already want to write Danny/Carter slash for the Inside, and all I've seen of it is that one minute clip on FOX's home page. That's probably not good. But still!

Quick Notes

OMG. Murphy's in one of those "Save the Art!" commercials! The one where the little girl wants her dad to read her the zoning restrictions book to her! He's the dad! OMG!

Also: Tonight "Hit Me Baby One More Time" starts! Of course, the only two I've ever heard are Tiffany and Loverboy, but I've heard of Arrested Development and A Flock of Seagulls. CeCe Peniston? Neva heard of her.

Expect an update soon with the first ten of my icons for icons100 (and yes, I'm too lazy to make it all linked and junk), plus an extra icon from "Twilight" which will get me crucified by the rabid NCIS fans. Good thing I'm used to that!

Scripps Spelling Bee

So, I'm watching Scripps Spelling Bee. It kinda rules. I mean, I totally freaking miss every single word I attempt to spell, but it rules! I also now really want to see Akeelah and the Bee. That looks soooo cool. And ye gods, I'm a geek. Shuddup.

As of now, about an hour and a half into round 7, I'm rooting for either #94 or #97. #94 because I lurve her accent and #97 cause gosh, he's a cutey.

Play-by-play of the finale of Scripps Spelling Bee

YES! All three of my top faves made it into Round 09! There's 94 and 97, of course, and also #238, who I totally forgot until he popped up again. He's so adorable! He's eleven, and this is his THIRD time at Scripps! He tied for third place the first time he came. When he was NINE. Jeez. #146 is pretty cool, too.

Look at the written round: http://www.spellingbee.com/05bee/rounds/writtenRoundWords.html
How many of you can honestly say you'd make it past #12? 'Cause I sure as hell couldn't.

Behind the cut: Proof that I suck at spelling! And that I'm a total loser!

This would be why I dropped out of Spelling Club after first quarter in sixth grade. That and I almost hamstrung myself by swinging my feet backwards into the basket under the chairs whenever it was my turn to spell. (Actually, if I remember correctly, I was pretty good in Spelling Club! They only did moderate words, and I read too much for my own good. I was the only one who could spell 'chasm' that first meeting. And in fourth grade I finished 15th out of the entire school! Damn good for a seven year old, methinks.)

But hey, I got two right! Domra and epideictic. That's a championship word right there!

I wonder if there's a Vocabulary Bee. I might actually be able to work that. Y'know what? Screw this knowledgelessness! I'm downloading those word guides off of Scripps's website and I am STUDYING. Screw the fact that I'm too old for the Bee, I can watch it next year and not be totally embarrassed.

(Also: LJ redflagged every single word. This amuses me.)
