I have the highest score so far

My friend Lisa sent me the neatest link this week, If you go here (and you should) they present you with vocab trivia. For every word you answer correctly, this site will donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Hunger Program. Just like that! I get to exercise my vocabulary skills and help end hunger. I know its only a small thing, but it is something.
Also, I totally kick ass. Amongst my friends I have the highest score. I realize those are kind of lame bragging rights, but I'm into it anyway. I am a big fan of words; though it will rarely show in my blog, I have a substantial vocabulary. I once dated a guy who I think may have broken up with my partly because my vocabulary was far superior to his. It really bothered him that I said things like "exacerbate, cocktails, derision." He often accused me of being pretentious, but I think it just bothered him that I was smarter than he was.
Ok, I do admit that using cocktail hour instead of drinks or happy hour is a little pretentious. It sounds so much nicer though, don't you think?

It's fun to pretend

I spoke with D yesterday. He is enjoying the beaches of Thailand, not that anyone would know that. He still refuses to blog about it himself. God forbid that an aspiring writer would actually write something. I told him about my new venture as a blogger, and when he asked what exactly I would be blogging, I answered that I would be posting about my adventures in South East Asia. He did not seem to think it was as funny as I did, but what does he know.
I actually spent about 80% of my day in bed today, I have been feeling poorly since last night. Headache, nausea, etc. I hope it is temporary, I hate being sick and I'm bored.

Numero Uno

My first on-line blog, how exciting and pointless. All of my friends we're doing it, so I thought I might also. Hopefully it'll get more interesting than this.
