WWF Trophy

When Someone Goes Too Far With Words With Friends (And By Someone I Probably Mean Me)

As if my previous post on Words With Friends wasn’t clear enough, I adore the game. (I’m “LateEnough” on there if you need me. Seriously, even when I’m not blogging, tweeting and Facebook-ing, I never stop WWF-ing.)

Seriously, I get so excited about playing good words that, when I score over 100 or even less than 100 but without Z or J, I take a picture. (HOLY CRAP I JUST ADMITTED THAT IN PUBLIC.)

What am I going to do with these pictures? I have no freakin’ clue. Mount them on my wall?  Make trading cards? Years from now, will my children scroll through my iPhoto library like I flipped through photo albums with sticky pages and Polaroids and opened up shoeboxes of basketball trophies and baseball cards? Will e and N show their children grandma’s great feats in Word with Friends?

WWF Trophy

Ooh. Ah. Grandma was so awesome with words. A word-meister if you will. Let’s see if she has anymore candy in her pocket. Don’t trip on a cat finding her.

She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Yeah. You’re scary when it comes to WWF. That is all.

    (Says she who is currently getting obliterated 429-307 by you. Please… end my misery soon. Your word, BTW.)

  2. I love Words with Friends too… and just like you I get pretty excited about those words that rack up high points! I only wish that Scrabble was like that in the real world! LOL!

  3. I don’t play WWF and now I am afraid to do so 😉

    however, you made me giggle…and I can see by your “battery power” that you take it very seriously. NICE.

  4. I’m jealous. My friends and my boyfriend were into Words With Friends before I had a smartphone. When I finally got one, no one cared anymore. NO ONE (not even my cousin, who begged on Twitter for anyone to play against her) ever played their turn on the games I initiated. 🙁 I was going to say I should play against you but after reading your whole post I’m pretty intimidated!

  5. This made me laugh. I take pictures of food all the time. I wonder what my grandchildren will think. They will probably wonder why I took 837 pictures of bread that I baked and think I must have always been weird. Who knows, maybe by then people won’t even eat bread anymore.

  6. Ooo, me too!! I wish I could post some here for you to enjoy! Or, really just because, yea, I’ve got nothing else to do with with all these screen caps of my epic WWF skills. Personal favorite : Josher for 112!

  7. Do yourself a favor (?) and try Wordfeud. They have a “random board” option that makes scrabble a whole new game. The point spaces on the board are randomized, so you can end up with turns that garner points in the hundreds all the time. It is soo fun – once I started playing that way, I couldn’t go back to regular scrabble/wwf anymore. But worded does have a regular board option too! 🙂
