Defending myself from cancer

Life is hard without a microwave. You never realize how much you take it for granted until you no longer have one. How do you soften butter? Heat up leftovers? Do anything??? Things that would normally take 45 secounds to 1 minute to warm up now take about 15 minutes, assumming I have to first pre-heat the oven. It's a pain. I guess this is helping me to learn patience. I can't have something(food) the moment I want it. Now I have to wait. Or not eat because I'm that lazy.

On the upside, I'm sure my body is healthier since I'm not around all that radiation from a microwave....

On another note, I'm watching the national spelling bee on espn. These kids are wicked smart.

I was only ever in a spelling bee in 5th grade...and I got the word aardvark and I lost...who knew there were two a's.

I made it to "regionals" or whatever in 4th and 5th grade. I went out on 'rapport' and 'chauvinism' respectively. It obviously haunts me to this day.

And we didn't have a microwave.

The best I ever did in a spelling bee was in kindergarden when I got third. I went out on the word "with" which I spelled w-h-i-t-h. The two kids who beat me both spelled "black" wrong and I knew how to spell that! But as you can tell, I'm over it...

I must have gotten over my spelling mishaps. I can't remember a single word that I spelled wrong. I loved spelling bees but I never got high enough to do it outside of my own school. I mainly remember once in 6th grade when we did it in front of a lot of parents and other people. I think that was my last spelling bee.
