keep feeling procrastination.

Or, How I Spent Some of My Saturday Night When I Should Have Been Mixing.

The onscreen comment, BTW, assumes that you're not sitting at your computer when the other person plays.


Spending quality time with Scrabalicious (actually Scrabulous) learns you a thing or two about Scrabble words, IOW, words that aren't used in real life, only in Scrabble. QAT, for example, played by me above, is a frequently-played "Q no U" word. Its definition: "the leaves of the shrub Catha edulis which are chewed like tobacco or used to make tea; has the effect of a euphoric stimulant; 'in Yemen kat is used daily by 85% of adults'". In this same vein, QIS is the plural of QI, or KI, the "circulating life energy that in Chinese philosophy is thought to be inherent in all things; in traditional Chinese medicine the balance of negative and positive forms in the body is believed to be essential for good health."

Another Scrabble-only word is SUQ, which is a variant of souk.
A ZAX is "a tool similar to a hatchet, used for cutting and dressing roofing slates."
