So, my roommate saved a squirrel today. It fell out of a tree and was thrashing around on the ground, so he scooped the little guy up and then took him to the room. He put him in a shoe box and gave him a shirt to chew on and the squirrel calmed down. It looked as though his front paw was injured. We went to the switchboard to see if the campus had any on site animal control of any kind, and the lady at the desk was clueless. So, we took him to the humane society down the road and, with any luck, he’ll not be euthanized.
That was my excitement for today.
Intervention Con was this weekend. I played a lot of Scrabble. Six and a half games (one got interrupted by Super Art Fight) and I am currently undefeated…. even if Dern thinks that I’m making up two letter words.
I believe that QUARTZY is the best possible opening play, while double blanks would be the worst. OXYPHENBUTAZONE is widely believed to be the best possible word to play, though it never has been played in sanctioned Scrabble. The best word played in sanctioned Srabble was QUIXOTRY on a Triple-Triple for 365 points.
I’d like to give a shout out to Kevin and Blondie over at Caf-fiends, Ross of Super Art Fight and The System, and Dern & Prindiville of Hello With Cheese for being generally cool people and helping to make my first con a good one.
I should probably add a link to Prindiville’s own site as he is no longer the artist for Hellow With Cheese.
