did you know qat is an acceptable word?

The Porkchop and I went shopping for packing supplies this weekend (and cat food), and somehow came home with three new games. :)

Travel Scrabble (for the train!), Cribbage (his sisters play, we are all going on vacation this summer together, I must learn) and Scene It Squabble (we haven’t even opened this one yet.. waiting for the people to come over, lol).

Sadly for the Chop, I don’t think he realized that the minute I had a Scrabble board in the house, I would want to play it incessantly. And since he is the only other one there, he’d get elected to play, too.

After three straight nights of three-hour games, the Chop needed a break.

I, of course, did not, and after much staring at the board, decided to bite the bullet and play online, something I have been very hesitant to do.

Why, you ask? Well, mainly ’cause I tend to be a bit obsessive when I find something like that… and I work on my computer all day, so knowing that a wonderful game of Scrabble is just one tab window away from me is my version of crack cocaine.

And right now, I really, really need a hit. :D

Online Scrabble? With other obsessive people who love it and want to play all night?! Sweet lord, where have you BEEN all my life?!


  1. You know you can also play cribbage online! But that’s all you need is yet another online addiction. But at least if you get addicted to cribbage you can go to Cribbaholics Unanimous ( for help! Good luck. :o)

  3. Yeah, and you can quit whenever you want, I’m sure.

    So, I have this friend. To look at him you’d think that he was a vagrant, or a total crackhead, because he’s a former long term meth addict and lost most of his teeth (cause meth rots your teeth). You’d never, ever, think that he could play scrabble.

    You’d be wrong.

    Back when he was in his addiction, he would stay up all night tweaking and read the scrabble dictionary. Even after all the years of abuse he is, hands down, the most vicious scrabble opponent I’ve ever seen.

  5. Joe.. interesting. As soon as I learn, I’ll check that how.

    Wen… ooo, Scrabble girl! We should play!

    Grampa.. :P I don’t want to face him. I have gotten handily beaten a couple of times.. times where I was doing quite well, with scores in the high 250s and the other person spelled some inane word and suddenly I lost by 120 points. It’s sad.

    Me.. lol. Good image. ;) Nah, he loves it too.
