Spelling Bee
There were something like 15 people who took the little test. The top person got 12 out of 20 words, but he can't go to the thing. The next person got 10, then there were two people with 9. I got 8. But it was a lot of fun. Hmm, I think hosting a spelling bee would be cool.

The words:
billionaire
lingerie
marionette
kibitzer
palooka
fuchsia
iridescent
jabot
orrery
quondam
wickiup/wikiup
caliginous
grisaille
duiker
hamartia
aubade
rufescent
ecchymosis
nidifugous
snollygoster
(extra word) eleemosynary

Argh, I'm not reading this, I'm not reading this....

Wait and dictate them to me over the phone, I want to see how I'll do.

Interesting words. The extra one was the title of a play I saw at Brandeis some years ago (not such a wonderful play).
