In honor of the recent Scripps 2008 National Spelling Bee…

…here are my awards for winning the school spelling bee in both 6th and 7th grade. Don’t get excited; I lost in regionals both times. In 6th grade I lost on “irrigation” (spelled it “irrAgation”) and in 7th grade I lost on “rhinoceros” (spelled it “rhinoceroUs”). Hey, I was just a little kid!

The sad part is not that I won twice; it’s that I’ve kept these ridiculous awards for so long, though I have blocked out the years so you don’t know just HOW long…

I’m trying to count all the ways that I am screwed here…

I count at least four (not counting my being a lesbian). And what is up with “Witches”??? I thought belief in witches went out a few hundred years ago.  And “Sports Fans”?  Is someone just trying to be controversial?
