The final board from me beating my dad in Scrabble for the very first time. The score at the end was my 316 points to his 271. (May 15th, 2006)
Well, I did it. Beat my dad at Scrabble.
Last week when he was here, I pulled out the Scrabble board and asked him if he wanted to play. He said, "Sure, Pete," and thus began our week-long Scrabble battle.
The nail in his coffin was when I layed down HOPED on the board, hitting a triple word score and getting bonus points for creating ID and PRIME, for a total of 48 points.
Even though I crushed him in the first game, he was not deterred. I didn't have long to savor my victory because he proceeded to whip me the next three games in a row.
Did you watch the season finale of 24? I know my dad hasn't seen it yet (I got your DVD right here, Dad! And I promise to send it out sooner than I did your knife!), so I won't get into any of the gory details. I just realized that I've been meaning to write about this season since late January. Oh well, better late than never. Has this been just totally Rock'em Sock'em 24, or what?
I'll say two things about the season finale:
Yeah, I got another birthday coming up soon. Like, Thursday.
As her little way of thanking me for the day of greatest physical pain in her life, my mom sent me a really cool book about a Japanese dog named Hachiko that lived a long time ago. She sent me another groovy book, but it isn't going to be released until September. So I guess I'll get to celebrate my birthday again this fall.
Oh, and one more thing. A tsunami is going to hit Florida on my birthday. So says your Link of the Day that has all the apparently serious details.
What else can I say but.... SURF'S UP!
