My mother is a Scrabble fiend, and has taught me to play a mean game of Scrabble. [livejournal.com profile] learnteach got me hooked on iPod Scrabble (the version for the Touch), and I've been playing against the computer. John M. Ford wrote a marvelous story called "Playing Scrabble with God", and playing against the computer is kind of like that. (Did you know "bruxing" was a word?)

One of the options of playing iPod Scrabble against the computer is that you get three chances of asking the computer to tell you what move will give you the most points, given the tiles in your set. Since I was playing against something that could come up with "bruxing", I occasionally chose that option. Tonight, though, I played without getting any hints at all, and I got "riveters", a seven-tile word with the first and last letters in the triple word squares, for 158 points. My final score for that game was 465 points.

I rock.
