I am so smart. S-M-R-T.

People! I fucking WON the first-ever Minneapolis Drunken Spelling Bee. Can you even believe it?? I still pretty much can't. More details later, when it's not 3:10 in the morning and when the alcohol level in my bloodstream isn't such that I'm bound to mistype some very simple word and effectively negate my victory.

Seriously though. I WON. Did you honestly see that coming?? I sure didn't. Wow.


P.S. My defeat in the 1986 Sheboygan County Regional Spelling Bee is officially redeemed. Thank you, and good night.

That is awesome, and possibly the best claim to fame I have ever heard, ever. What was the prize?

Lara said...

I am so damn impressed!!! I truly cannot wait to hear the rest of the details. What was the final word? Were any of the other participants cute single men? And, indeed, what was the prize?

I am entirely unsurprised by this. I'd be shocked if you hadn't won!

Aaron said...

Congrats!!! Also: I totally titled a post "I am so smart. S-M-R-T" this past year and no one appreciated it.

I'm not the tiniest bit surprised. This is, after all, the Year of Stef!

Woo hoo!

Stefanie said...

Thanks, all. I'm working on answers to all your questions.

Aaron--I'm not entirely sure how many people appreciated it when I did it either, but I'm glad at least one person got it.

Liz--Good point! Year of Stef indeed.
