A Snippet From My Diary- Anointed

We played scrabble at half seven. While we played it, we had some 1% alcohol cider. I didn’t like it the first sip I took, but by the last, I was enjoying it very much. (Addictive?! Sugar! Alcohol!). Both teams (Me+Dad, Rafe+Mum) did very well, and both got on the triple words. I’m sure we learnt some new words again. Well, came across; I can’t remember even 1 now!

Right near the end, I spotted Rafe trying to put on his poker face (he’s not very good at it ;-) lol) – they had a good’n. At the same time, I’d found a word to put down- Damn. (I had the amn). There was two Ds on the board I could have put it down on. I chose one of them completely randomly, and Rafe’s head drooped. I later found out, they were going to use the D to make anointed, which would have been like the best word ever (except from when Dad put down galoped on his first go – putting all his letters down!). Phew! We lost by about 40 points still, but the main thing is, we got a good score! We got over 260. Mum got around 300. If they’d got that Anointed though, they’d probably have got more near to the 400s.

What a game!!

Blackbird Name Origin- Bird and Fowl

Why is a Blackbird just called Black Bird? Surely there are lots of other species of black birds. The reason is, when the name was given in the 18th century- the word bird was a name used for only smaller species of bird. Others – like Carrion Crows or Ravens – were called “fowl”. So the Blackbird was the only bird in that time that was black!
