riveting, r-i-v-e-t-i-n-g, riveting

i just got done watching Spellbound. who knew a movie about nerdy kids spelling would be so fascinating? i couldn’t take my eyes off it. i cried when the girl i was rooting for was knocked out when there were only a few spellers left. you should really see this movie, it’s great. i think my favorite part was the bonus features, where you get to find out what all the kids were up to now. i must admit a little part of me was hoping that one of them would have went into a downward spiral after losing the spelling bee championship and become like a drug-addicted ne’er do well, but i guess that’s the making of a hollywood blockbuster and not really a documentary.

    oooh… I just saw this on skin-e-max a week or two ago. Mucho interstingo. I bet you and I were rooting for the same gal. She would be the one who actually had some social skills and personality. I wanted to strangle that one really irritating boy with zero attention span. He played the guitar.

    i wanted the girl with the low self-esteem who had the mom with the GIANT red glasses and looked like edith bunker. and i hated ADD harry, and i hated the dad who made his kid practice spelling like 84 hours a day.
