My, that was interesting

Hi ho, hi ho, I'm back online. And feeling spoiled by all the sweet condolences for the limb amputation temporary service disruption we endured. Have I told you lately that I love you?

It's been a week.

We flew home from Boston.

We lost Internet service.

We started Friday Co-op.

One of my siblings had major surgery.

My mom came into town.

It seemed like a logical week to let the blog simmer.

But, I do owe a couple of you an explanation.

Behold, the jocundity-in-a-bag known as Bananagrams. A favorite in my word-nerdy family of origin. If you haven't discovered it yet, you're in for a treat!

Welcome home!

I love that the letters come in a banana-shaped bag.

Tamara said...

I love the bag too--it could hardly be called bananagrams without it, and there's something so delicious about pulling scrabble tiles out of a cloth banana! (my word-nerdy family also enjoys the game :-)

Jenny said...

Hmmm...looks like Scrabble in a banana!

Welcome back to the land of the internet-addicted. ;)

Welcome back and wishes for a speedy recovery for your sibling.

Jared said...

Is Bananagrams the same as Speed Scrabble? Well I'm terrible at either!

Julie said...

Welcome back! I love, love, love scrabble, and I'm about the only one in my family that looks like scrabble and a lot of fun!

bananagrams are INDEED wonderful! pretty close to speed scrabble, Jared... but in a handy-dandy zipper cloth banana-shaped bag! Coined with new play words like: SPLIT! (-READY,GO!), PEEL! (-take one!), Dump! (-return your unwanted letter face down into the pile in trade for taking THREE new ones), and BANANA! (-I WON!).
