i present to you scrabulous.com
. free, online scrabble! waste more time at work!
i happen to love odd made up words that are combinations of other words. my new brother-in-law's new dog is a mix between a yorkshire terrier and a chihuahua. a yorkiwawa! scrabble is so fabulous, it's scrabulous. hooray!
the other thing i love about this website is the tag line at the top of the page when you load a game. it says:the most amazing website for free, relaxed, online scrabble - experience pure joy, everytime.
i love this. who doesn't want to experience pure joy, everytime (sic)?
right now, i am playing a game with my mom and brother (i will almost definitely lose) and with jesse
(i will absolutely definitely lose). the first graders are delighted by this, because usually i try to make a move or two while they're eating lunch. they try to suggest words, which is endearing but not very helpful.
i tend to be viciously competitive about board games. like, it's an active struggle for me not to cheat at candyland with my 4 year old niece. if i lose at trivial pursuit or scattergories, things get ugly (come to think of it, i'm not sure i've ever lost at trivial pursuit or scattergories). but for some reason, i don't mind losing at scrabble. i think it's because i know i'm not very good at it, so i don't have any expectations that i will win or do well. it's sort of refreshing, actually.
if anyone else wants to play, email me and i will invite you for a game. you'll probably win.
