spell dis suckers

I miss blogging like a normal motherbumper. Each time I start a post a whole pile of negativity falls out of my brain. I read what has been written down and the little baby Jesus cries. Or something like that.

Anyhow, I've got to move forward and tonight I'm blogging the National Spelling Bee live. Obviously definition is not part of the spelling bee requirements because a large group of those American "national" contestants are from Canada.

I'm doing this live blog with Chag from Cynical Dad because we both have such busy social lives that this is what we do on a Friday night. I'll be covering contestant fashion and he will be dissecting the politics of spelling. Links will be up later today. Come back because I know you'll want to see how many spelling mistakes I make (to be fair, Chag will be shouting pronunciations and definitions each time I'm stumped... like I was two seconds ago with the words pronunciation and definition).

Hey - and today is the last day to enter my super fantabulous Brain Age 2 giveaway over at motherbumper's lab. If you have a DS and don't have Brain Age 2 - you are missing out on making yourself smarter yo'. Draw will happen tomorrow and the winner will be contacted this weekend. Check it out.

And if none of this tickles your fancy, you can go read the gossip I sling each and every weekday (even when sick) over at Binkywood. Do it and you will feel more worldly and informed.

Clay Aiken is breeding?

Now that story on 680 about four horsemen on the 401 this morning makes more sense.

Good to have you back, MB.

I love the expression on that girl's face.

I'm relieved to know that he didn't actually have sex. I worry about stuff like that.

er. something.

Kyla said...

My first thought was "Surely he didn't have SEX with her." So when I heard it was artificial, all was right in the world again.

Have you seen the documentary Spellbound? So good (see how I only used short words to described it).

Graham said this week that I should be in a spelling bee because OMG did you know I got all of my spelling dictations 100% in grade THREE?

Ali said...

the question is not "did clay aiken have sex with a woman?" but rather "what the hell kind of woman would have sex with Clay Aiken???????!!!!"

Do you know how much I'm looking forward to the Spelling Bee? I guess I'm a nerd.

I was eating vanilla icing on a spoon when I read the phrase, Clay juice. Thanks.

for a different kind of girl said...

I love that the expression on that girl's face is all "What up, bitches? Bring it!"

I read, then re-read, then huddled in a corner in fear this whole Clay Aiken spawning thing. He was probably relieved she didn't want to actually see his wee wee, though.
