Rice and words.

This is a curious new site, which claims to donate grains of rice through the United Nations to help end world hunger when you correctly identify words. One's vocab level rises when the words become more difficult, and apparently the revenue to pay for the rice is generated by the sponsors adverts at the bottom of the screen. It is perfectly time wastey, and you can feel good about doing it too!

Wow, how bizarre and strangely addictive! I love this...!

I just donated 440 grains and learned 10 new words at least. Must go and use "terpsichorean" immediately.

to Tania: of course, you must find a way to insert that word in your next book:-)
Sara, thanks for the link - I stopped when I got to 230 because I had other blogs to go and read, but enjoyed my visit.
I hope it's not unlucky to wish you good luck for tomorrow...
