I used to feel like that person did too, but then I would come on just to brag about hitting milestones. I mean, that's what this whole site is for! There aren't many other settings in life where I can tell people I broke the 700, 800 or 900 point barrier on Wordtwist and have them care or even understand.

Yeah, I recently played Big Boggle (in real life) with a couple of old friends who enjoy Scrabble. I ended up apologizing because I found so many more (and mostly longer) words. They'll never play with me again.

Here I'm barely average so I can brag all I want and not feel bad about it.

True story, especially the understanding of what it took to reach those milestones.

Okay, true story here: I broke 300 once. I live for the day I manage it again.

You go girl! You did it once so you can do it again. Keep playing and learning and it will happen.

That's usually how it works. You hit some crazy high score you've never gotten before and it feels like you'll never do it again...until you do. Then the numbers just keep going up.

I love finding long words. That doesn't come easily to me, so it's always a huge surprise when I do.

Looks like it's time for more re-population. (The spell checker here doesn't like that word without a hyphen.)

Oh, and I hit a new high on 5x5 yesterday of 957...a score that wouldn't even get me first place in the average score per month. Very stiff competition in the 5x5 world.
