I just have one word for today—ursprache.

Who else loved the fact that the National Spelling Bee was televised live during prime time?

I didn't watch it, but it was probably the most real reality TV that's been shown in a looooong time!

Watched, it loved it, and realized I really don't know how to spell.

I watched some of it.  I was going over to it during the commercial breaks in another show.  What was with the Persian?  Every other word seemed to be from Persian - who knows any Persian?
I did know one or two that the kids didn't get, but I've never been a Spelling Bee kind of speller.  I can spell well, but not that well.

Loved it!  My perceptions regarding my ability to spell were changed...  I was on the edge of my seat and full of admiration for those kids.

I didn't watch it, but was impressed to learn later on NPR that another kid was the one who found the judging error that got the 3rd place winner reinstated...  Sounds exciting!
