My favorite speller, Catherine Miller, has survived round three. Catherine was involved in one of the more memorable bee moments last year when Dr. Cameron actually came on stage to pronounce "epopt" right up in her business.

Breaking news! The first twenty-one kids in the National Spelling Bee spelled their words correctly. Shame on the kid who broke the streak!

Tivo alert! The 2003 Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee will be on ESPN this Thursday morning/afternoon. Special bonus: during the noon to one o'clock hour, ESPN will be airing the 2003 Mathcounts national competition. It's the ultimate geek's dream.

Three of my favorite things in the world collided tonight when I saw the Oscar-nominated movie Spellbound: documentary film-making, spelling bees, and dorky kids. I've always enjoyed watching ESPN's coverage of the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee; I feel a certain connection to these spelling nerds. Director Jeff Blitz has put together a riveting look at eight such contestants and their pursuit of the prize.
On a sad note, the curmudgeonly pronouncer Dr. Alex Cameron passed away earlier this year. The Bee will never be the same without him.
A Krispy Kreme franchise partnership in Washington state is being sued for sexual harassment and racial discrimination. The management is accused of forcing female workers into sex and paying Hispanic workers significantly less than whites on the same level. Frankly, I'm disgusted. I refuse to ever eat another Krispy Kreme donut. No more deliciously hot original glazed confections for me. Never. Ever. Well...not at least until the Brick franchise opens up this summer.

This car-crashing-into-house news blurb is short on details but thankfully, it's also short on human injury. This car-crashes-into-deli news item lacks an accompanying picture; use your imagination. Just picture an '88 Olds halfway through the store's wall covered in mayo and bologna.
On a somewhat related note, senior pranks in Nebraska are really lame.
This is a little late... but CONGRATULATIONS to my brother Rob on his graduation Monday May 12 from Seton Hall University. Hazard Zet Forward little brother!

How many people do you have to meet before you find your soulmate? I've got to meet 1585. Does that make me too picky or not picky enough?

I've been lax with posting anything recently. Sorry. Please buy me this t-shirt and I'll contribute more interesting things in the near future.

Do you people still enjoy car-crashing-into-home stories? I, for one, love the photos.

This story is priceless...it's comic gold, especially for iracane.com: Squirrel chases girl up tree.

Which is the better metaphor for life? Stud poker or baseball? I'd wager that Vince would choose baseball but I've got my reasons for defending poker. After all, you've got to play with the cards you're dealt...so go ahead. Bet the farm.

Car crashes into convenience store blah blah blah.
I really like Avril Lavigne. I do, I swear. Even though corporate radio has whored her out 100 times over, I think she's faboo, even without makeup. However, the numbers don't lie.
