1. immature

3. insouciance (I spelled it wrong)

My favorite old boss Jesse came and watched the bee with his wife, it was lovely. I left the house with a temperature, but I beat it into submission and it was not a foggy brain that got me out of the bee. Insouciance is a generally terrible word.

There was a charity spelling bee tonight at Comedy Sportz for SOSSA. It was FUN. I wish I could have been in for longer, they had cool inventive rounds after I got out… 🙁

1. advantage
2. accommodate
3. brisage (I spelled it wrong)

Brisage has to do with explosives. It is a very technical word not used outside of the firearm and explosives nerd world. F it.

Shameful. Unacceptable. Thankfully, the gods sent a trivia quiz about Portland, and backlit with a halo, Joe the Portland Tour Guide smashed that shit up. I ended up $6 richer, and that’s pretty good for a terrible night, spelling-wise. Thanks, Joe.

I had a lot of banter with excellent host Adam about my name. They give you a free beer, which I didn’t take. Host: “But Bri is an anagram of Beer!” Me: “Not the way I spell it, it’s just B-R-I.” Host: “Bri is an anagram of… IRB!” Someone else “Rib.”

Robert, Leila, Andy and I sat eating pizza before the bee, and Andy, Leila and I tied for 3rd, knowlingly leaving the stage at the same time when the other two spellers got their words right. Ah well, it was a good exit.
