This week end I watched Snow Cake. The saddest day of last year was the passing of Alan Rickman; I had yet to track him down and declare my undying love for him. Darn.

In the film they had a scene where they played comic book scrabble, and I thought, since my students make up words anyway, this might be fun. It was actually more difficult than it looks. I wish I could tell you some of the words that were made, but they didn’t stick, there were some really great ones though. Try it, its fun!
