BEE-licious o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d

10.18.2009
i'm just bee-tastic apparently because i unconsciously chose a book and a movie about spelling bees. the signs all point to word luv i guess.

the book, _bee season_, wasn't word wonderful unfortunately. it took me three months to finish
that ish and once i reached the end i was left scratching my head wondering what the heck kind of devil's lettuce the author was smoking. i'm so sad that books aren't doing what i need for them to do lately. i need an author who's laced the pages of their book with literary crack so that i can't put the durn thing down. that's what i want!

spellbound was a horse of a different color though. it was hilarious and totally entertaining. because i am a nerd i can say this: those kids were nerd-licious. they were nerdier than nerdy in the most interesting kind of way. i had fun playing with my inner geek and watching these kids pull words out of their mouths like a hockey player spits teeth.

fyi...i won my 5th grade spelling bee. then when i went to the city bee i got out on admirer. sigh...i hate that word now. absolutely hate it. maybe that's why i don't have one :)

origin of movie referral?

that recommendation came from this nerdy cool comedian i went on a couple of dates with months ago that i probably never blogged about because he was neither terrible nor stick-with-worthy.

ah... the upsides to bad dating. gotta l-o-v-e it.

  1. I actually read Bee Season a few years ago and kind of liked it! It was way bizarre...but I thought kind of fascinating. Maybe it was because I was a psych major, but that girl's family was pretty messed up!

    Emily and I watched Spellbound a few years ago to...nerd-o-riffic is right! :)
