I keep not joining facebook. Well, I might have signed up, but didn't explore further. I suppose once I'd join I'd be one of the fervent followers of some aspect of it. Scrabble appeals to me somewhat since I lost my happy nytimes sunday crossword fix to money issues. I pretty much forget the rules of scrabble since I was raised on faux Scrabble, called Keyword. Or maybe Keyword was first, who knows. I gather the folks who are real champs get very involved with lists of potential small words, a project that strikes me as a major time suck, and I have other stuff in line for that descriptive.
There was this article in the New Yorker re scrabble a few years ago; fascinating article in its way. I think it was by Judith Thurman, but that's just a guess.
Anyway, I might be just the right dullard for a recovering brain surgery steely bright person and a purported amateur from the north.
