Last week was the Scripps National Spelling Bee and I was able to unleash the giant nerd that resides in me. I only let it out on rare occasions and spelling bees always bring the nerd on strong. I was the William Howard Taft Junior High 7th grade spelling champ. I love words! This year was awesome, I watched as much of the Bee as possible, but it was on at bad times for me. By the way, does anyone else think it's weird that they show most of it on ESPN?
For you true spelling and documentary nerds, I would like to recommend "Spellbound". It follows eight kids on their journey to the National Bee and it is awesome! The dedication, knowledge and lack of social skills these kids possess is incredible.
This kid is in the movie and he is the coolest. At one part he talks like a robot for no reason. Love him.
