I played Scrabble online tonight

Turned out to be a person from Australia I was matched with.  Learned the hard way.

She put down "czars" on a triple word (48 pts) and I said "ok fu" [which is my way of saying "great move!"]

The she says [AG=Australia Granny]

AG: "are you kidding me?  how old are you?"
ME: "36"
AG: "I'm a granny from australia..  Such talk."
ME: "Didn't mean to upset you".
[a couple of more moves go by]
ME: "How did you get this far without a little bit of trash talk thrown at you?"
[a couple of moves go by]
AG: "Where are you?"
ME: "New York"

[blah blah game ends]

It only occurred to me after that perhaps she would have wanted to chat further, but that also the only two things I would have to say to her are:

"Hey, I saw 'On the Beach' recently... do you like that movie?"

and

"Hey I was in Australia once.  I ate kangaroo.  Do you like kangaroo?"

No-one will be seated during the exciting May 1 - May 7 sequence when fuck-all nothing happens.
