A Little Game of Scrabble

Karen, my friend from California, and I were just talking about how we don’t forward those emails that say “send this email to 10 people within three hours and you will have your most fervent wish come true. If you delete this message before forwarding it on, you will have 10 years of bad luck.”



Okay, you may not have gotten one with the same verbiage but you know the kind of email I mean. By my count, I have about 10 LIFETIMES worth of bad luck. (Hey, wonder if I can “serve” my sentences concurrently and speed things up to say 5 LIFETIMES?)


Anyway, the next day I received the following email from one of my geneablogger buddies:

Scrabble
Ok the game is on... Afternoon Scrabble - Keep it going!!!


Change one letter of the bottom word posted and let's see who gets stuck and can't continue!
Rules: You cannot add letters. You cannot use foreign languages. You can only change one letter.

Send it back to the person that sent it to you, plus 10 new people.

Add your entry to the bottom after you hit Forward, or to be neater please Copy and Paste!???

Don't forget: send it back to the person that sent it to you, plus 10 new people.

To make it even more interesting, let's add what city and state we are from & the date to see how far this goes and how long it's been out...

This one I did participate in and pass on. I did it for two reasons.


1. NOBODY was being threatened if they did not pass it on.
2. It was extremely interesting to see the number of places this little chain email had been.

I sent it to people in the geneablogger world (see Karen, I was good to you.), and my apologies to anyone who may have been offended by being included in this little email. My apologies to anyone I didn’t send it to and who, upon reading this, realized that they would have WANTED to be included. You just can’t please everybody.


It started in the UK, but I don’t know which country in the UK because the originating person was not that specific. However, the following countries are represented: England, Scotland, Wales, Australia, Barbados, and the United States. Twenty states are represented in the list. I am the second Ohioan on this particular list.


Below is the list. I have deleted names from it, but I thought it was interesting to see the dates, and the places where this game of scrabble has been. The first date is listed as 18/08/08, which is August 18, 2008. This form of date changed to the more common form used in the US in Baltimore, MD.

A special thanks to the fellow geneablogger who included me in this game. I was feeling in a funk, and this perked me up.

If anybody recognizes this list, and would like to drop me a comment, I would love to hear from you. The world has certainly gotten smaller!

I received this email yesterday (2.20.09) from a friend in New Mexico. It included an attachment that contained a series of images many of which I recognized from websites I have visited in the past several months. Rather than forward it or reply to the sender, I deleted it and am now wondering if it contained a hidden program that turned my computer into a zombie.
