I'm currently playing 4 simultaneous Words With Friends games on my iPhone and I'm losing all of them.
This is not good for my self esteem.
The worst part: I am an English major! In my defense, I never took Scrabble 101.
Words With Friends is better than Scrabble, because there is no need to pull out a dictionary to check if words are real. You can just arrange letters on the board and click submit until the computer accepts the word.
These are "words" - and i use that term loosely - that have been played in our WWF games.
Poots? Really? Poots.
I tend to argue about the truthiness of these words.
me: debie, wodge is barely aword
2:16 PM i keep thinking of wodge and laughing
i was trying for anything, clearly.
Debie: hahaha apparently wert is aword!
and so is xu
what does poots mean??
2:13 PM other words i've used and don't know what they mean: poh, rime, dreg
But I can't even think of made-up words, let alone real words.
11:19 AM Joseph: i'm on fire
you might as well resign this game
me: i know - it's not looking good for me
11:20 AM i'm getting desperate
turns out "zorgs"
"Would you still be friends with me if I wear bellbottoms?"
"Would you still be friends with me if I wear suspenders?"
"Would you still be friends with me if I wear denim floral hotpants?"
I own all these items, by the way.
Here is a real excerpt from a gchat convo yesterday with my friend Debie. Just to illustrate my point:
Ed. Note: I removed all the "hahaha"s from the conversation in order to improve readability.
And it just goes on like that, with more and more text for them to scroll through.
And I type really fast so I imagine it's hard to get a word in edge-wise.
I'm on this tennis email list and they made it look like Roger Federer himself sent me a message. Look in my gmail - it's Roger's name in the sender category! I wish he would send me emails for real, not just mass mailings. He could be on my gchat contacts, maybe our convos would go like this:
Adele: Hey, what's up?
