I never jump on bandwagons. Not my style. I never read the Harry Potter series. Just not into it. Never understood the hoopla. But then came Edward. If you're wondering what rock I crawled out from under, please reread my first sentence. I just got sucked in, well like, like blood to a vampire. I couldn't sleep this morning so I got up to be with Edward, again. Donna, Diana, Charlene, Carol? Would you like to jump on? I've got the reins and I'm ready to lead the way. I'm unashamedly wanting more and more of Edward. By the way, I'm talking about a book that came out in 2005 called "Twilight." The movie premieres November 21. Its sequels are "New Moon," "Eclipse," and "Breaking Dawn." To read more about this captivating series, check out the author's website by clicking on her name, Stephenie Meyer.

It began with the players when they started winning more and more games. Now that the Tampa Rays have made the playoffs, fans are sporting their own versions of mohawks and Tom is a BIG fan. Today we won game 1 of the American League Division Series against the White Sox (6-4).
Tom and I played Scrabble last night. Our usual 5 games. Tom won the first four - nothing unusual about that. And it's not that I won the 5th game that makes this so interesting - it's just the game itself.
Tom's first play (a bingo) was "duocote." I looked at him. He looked at me. And then I checked my rack to see if I could use these letters even if it was a phony. Tom got 74 points for "duocote" but I could score 40 with "qoph" as a parallel play so I decided to let his word stay on the board. I told him either the word was good or he was the world's best poker player and if that was the case, he needed to switch games. Then he played "wis" which I challenged and lost. I thought I knew my threes. It just looked funny. The joke was on me. His next play was "gripe" but I came back with my first bingo - evaders. We went back and forth until I put down another bingo - cresting. I only won by 4 points. And since I hadn't challenged "duocote" we looked it up after the game. As you can tell by the "Word Judge" the play was not acceptable. Duocote? A second coat of paint?????
