okay so we got stuck (more like sucked in) watching the spelling bee tonight – seriously NOTHING else on!
we started watching with 13 kids left in the competition. they had them to the right of the stage and their parents on the left. upon elimination they went to the side where their parents were sitting (some sat on laps, some took the floor) – why did they not have chairs for eliminated kids? that’s just mean.
as it turns out…(SPOILER OOH!) the canadian girl from alberta made it to the final 2, she and a jersey girl faced off. in round 19 she got the word “weltschmerz” and just couldn’t get it out. the jersey girl beat the alberta girl. yay summer primetime viewing. *sigh*
EDIT: of course we watched the eastern conference final – but that was over by like 6pm… canes beat the sabres woo!

I was on the edge of my seat, rooting for the Canadian girl….!
I can’t believe she missed the W for a V on a German word, considering everything else those kids know about different languages’ spelling and etymology.
It was really great, pure, “reality TV” television.
Big Brother: All Stars starts June 21!! Until then my TV is dead to me 😛
