TGIF!

Wheel of Fortune Results
Wednesday's games were very tough, and for good reason since the top two were worth a lot of points. I tried to make the bottom one a little more obtainable though, so people having a tough time with the top two could at least get some credit.

W O R D S
Category: Things
Used Letters: RSTLNE BHAG

Todays Mood: Today I feel relieved. It was a good week for the main two reality TV shows we watch with Clyde Drexler and Sanjaya Malakar finally getting the boot. I'm also relieved about the Milwaukee Bucks season finally being over. Let's forget that ever happened, eh? And my first softball practice in almost eight years went ok on Wednesday - my hitting was pretty decent (thank you Wii Sports) but my fielding is in need of some work! Our first game is a week from Sunday.
