My toenails still hurt. ¬.¬ I don't like being aware of my toenails!

In other news, there is a movie coming out (or possibly that is out now, I'm not sure), focusing on some gal named Akeelah who is in a spelling bee, called Akeelah and the Bee. This movie apparently has some sort of sweet promotion deal through Starbucks. One of the promotional bits is that each store was sent a box of "word cards" with things like "Elucubratist" (my profession!) etc. That's fine and dandy, and I approve ... new words are English Major Pr0n, after all.

However, they also have a "travel set" of Scrabble, which are all set out on display with letters arranged thus:

  E   T
N     E

...and for some reason, whenever I see this, I can't help but find myself singing:

Akeelah and the Bee
Akeelah and the Bee
one is a genius
the other's ... a bee?

Akeelah's life is hard
the bee chases her 'round the yard
Akeelah and the Bee,
Bee, Bee, Bee, Bee

Before the movie's done
they'll spell a lot of words
this kind of thing is fun
to English-wonky nerds!

Akeelah and the Bee
Akeelah and the Bee
An independent flick
about a spelling-savant chick

That bee is such a nut
it stung her on the butt
So deal-a,
Akeelah and the Bee,
Bee, Bee, Bee, Bee
Bee, Bee, Bee, Bee...

Apparently I'm weirder before 10:00 a.m. than most people are all day. 0.o
