11 finalists. 8pm, tonight, ABC. My crazy friends are humoring me by watching with me. Thanks, you guys.
It’s going to be a lot of fun.
OH! You know what was exciting? One of the Round Three words was sesquipedalian. That was one of the words I spelled at stake singles spelling bee in January 2007. Ooh. It was a third-round word for me, too! I struggled a little bit with that one, but I pulled it off.
No Canadians this year. The Midwest dominates the competition with six spellers. Everyone else is from California, Florida, Nevada, New York, Virginia. The Mormon boy from Hawaii is out.
I’m rooting for them all.
