    I think of myself as a fairly good speller...
    But I doubt I'm ever going to enter a spelling bee.

    Nope. Actually it's kinda... smart, hahah.
    I'm not one to enter a spelling bee, though.

    Edit:: Speaking of spelling, Zero77... You mispelt Criss Angel's name on your signature :S

    To each their own :)
    I'd definitely lose in a spelling bee, anyway. No point of ever trying :/
    Personally, I find video games a little nerdy, anyway :p
    My friends make fun of me for my obsession with 'em, heh.

    Well... I do play too much.
    Time I could be actually doing something.
    I also tend to get on MySpace too much. :p
    Not much else to do when I'm waiting for friends to get out of school, :lol:

    Don't get MSN though... Steals ALL your time.

    Also, if you guys think you can spell well, why do you go lax on a forum in the areas of grammar and capitalization?

    MSN as in MSN Messenger?
    I always have my MSN on. I don't spend a ton of time on it, though :p

    I thought I did capitalize and use good grammar :S
    I admit I do use comma splices a lot, though.
    Dang commas.

    Yes...MSN messenger steals all my time...

    You'll never achieve anything if you never try.

    yes, you could consider me geeky. I'm not afraid to say I'm geeky though.

    Don't you have to be like 14 or under to enter though? (Which would rule out most members of this forum)

    You have to be in either the 5, 6, 7, or 8 grade to enter. There's a couple more rules, i'm not going to take the time to type them all down though.

    The best thing about spelling bees are the videos on youtube of them. Like that kid who went ape when she won. :lol:
