The Scrabble Story of 2007.

Ok...here it goes...I was on vacation...and I was playing scrabble with two of my good friends...both of which are really great scrabble players (but who will remain nameless for the sake of the story).  I wanted to be apart of the fun so I decided to play.  Now, I'll be the first to tell you I'm not the best speller in the world.  Not to bash myself but I credit myself with having way more street smarts than book smarts.  I will also tell you that I might have had a glass of wine before the game, and I also had my "girly-time"...so ladies you know what I'm talking about...I might have been a little more emotionally unstable than usual.   I got the letter closest to "A" so I had to go first and me not thinking I wanted to spell out the word "C-O-A-L."  Instead I spelled it "C-O-L-E."  Both of my smart and witty friends both immediately START LAUGHING OUT LOUD and were like....WHAT?  THAT'S NOT A WORD! THAT'S NOT HOW YOU SPELL IT?? And I felt really stupid and burst into tears.  Just like a little girl who got her lollipop taken from her, I burst into tears.  My friends then felt bad and I was trying to tell them that it was okay...but I was crying and then just started laughing at the ridiculousness of my tears.  Now anytime I play scrabble with these girls...they remind me how to spell COAL.  It's pretty awesome.  ALright that's all....we are posting a new song on myspace right as I speak...Exciting times.  Australia rules.  Random thing below is me trying on my friend Einar's rockin' green shades!-kate
