Possible definition of obsession

Possible definition of obsession: when the person playing Scrabble with you puts the name of their football team as a play, only getting some seven points for it.

Another possible definition of obsession: my playing so much scrabble that it happens in the first place.

What's even more startling is that your opponent used so many letters which are useful for forming bingos.

I know! They're beating me in the current game, though.

I noted someone complaining in the paper that on Million Doillar Wheel of Fortune "it was so predictable [and therefore shouldn't be on TV]" that everyone picked the E, R, T, and S etc for their letters when solving the last phrase.

Yes, it'd be ultra-cool if the compere said "Four consonants and a vowel" and the contestant said "U, Q, X, J, and Z, please!"

I too am completely and scarily addicted to facebook scrabble. May I friend you, so we can play?

TimT said...

Friend away!

TimT said...

Maria, I guess that any word that doesn't include U Q X J and Z - consecutively, I might add - is not worth learning! Ah yes. Uqxjz. I say it all the time...

Maria said...

And an UQXJZously UQXJZ day to you too, Tim T. How UQXJZ of you!

TimT said...

To Uqxjz, or not to Uqxjz -
That is the question.
Whether 'tis nobler to Uqxjz,
And by Uqxjzing, end them?

Out, damn Uqxjz!

Half a league, half a league, half a league onward
Road the Uqxjzred.

There once was a Uqxjz in a tree
Who was horribly Uqxjzed with a bee:
When asked, "Does it Uqxjz?"
He replied, "Yes it Duqxjz!"
It's a perfectly Uqxjzid old Uqxjz!"

Astute scrabbles and cruciverbalists will also be interested to know that Uqxjz is an anagram of 'jquxz' and a near-anagram of 'jjqzx'.
