Over Cupcakes and Scrabble

Nearly everyday this summer, the whole time I was in Kuwait, 7alawa and I would pick a random coffee place and go play scrabble for HOURS. I love scrabble!!

Cupcake place in Fanar

My green tea and caramel cup cake

Me looking up a word in my Oxford dictionary, I carried it every where!

7alawa enjoying her carrot cup cake

Pics were taken by NuNu my cousin, who neglected to tell me 7alawa spelled VIBS instead of VIBES until it was too late! AND she told 7alwa i was cheating the whole time!!!


I am the worst speller I know, one time 3 of us were playing and we had to look up the word IDIOT in the dictionary cause the three of us were idiots and couldn't spell it ourselves!

I play scrabble with my family, the enjoyment in it is watching everyone in their temper tantrums and their outbursts and not the actual game LOL, my brother is the worst, when it's very clear that he's losing he flips the board over and runs to his room slamming doors on the way.

November 13, 2007 at 7:29 AM

i love scrabble as well. me and the hubby can sometimes spend hours playing... but, ha, that was before we had a baby. the last time we played was in the states w/ my family. hubby won every time and took the name "the wiz"...

i love cupcakes. wish there was a place here that made really good ones.

you do know that you're not allowed to look 'up' words.. but you can check the spelling if you don't know.

November 18, 2007 at 1:22 PM  

hmmm.... my bad.

hoping your n76 is not pink. ;)

November 23, 2007 at 7:33 PM  

you seem so dull and boring. i'd shoot myself in the head everyday if i was your friend.thank gof your not.
