Short and sweet-- and a challenge

Is it proof of a hyperactive imagination that I enjoy reading movie transcripts online, I mean from start to finish, while I'm at work? I've done it a couple of times in the last month, and if I know the movie well enough, it's almost as good as watching it. I'll sit at my desk, laughing at Anchorman or Kingpin, or smiling my way through and old Star Wars, having a great old time.

Also, this is cool as hell. Online vocab quiz, 50 levels (although they say it's very rare to get past 48). The organization donates ten grains of rice through the UN for every word you get right. So I'm a level 44. Bring it on, bitches. You got the word in you?

Finally, I just finished an article about a few studies (by both traditional family institutions and by pro-gay, progressive institutions) that claim that gay men die as much as 20 years younger than the average man. 20 years. So I guess being gay is bad for you. What do you think about that?

Argh. I donated 300 grains of rice and hovered around a vocab level of 30. I think that means I suck. But damn, that is addicting.

I got up to 690 grains of rice (pounds or rice?) but the most frustrating thing is I would get to level 46 and then get one wrong and it would drop me to level 40!

I hate being beat by a computer. I will win!
