What's 'nieve'?

Chambers can't find it...

(smartarse! x)


Way. Too. Much. Time. On. Her. Hands.


Funnily enough the opposite is normally true, but well, what's a girl gonna do when she's stuck in a cupboard called "Paris"?

I confess I don't know what a Nieve is. I just know it's in the international tournament Scrabble dictionary (which is for hardcore Scrabble fanatics and doesn't even bother with definitions).

All the words are in said dictionary, apart from one. A prize goes to anyone who can spot the one word that isn't in the Scrabble dictionary (aka SOWPODS) (I used to have a link to an online version - hang on...)

Not sure if this'll work, but...

Scrabble dictionary.


For a brief moment I thought you were gonna whip out a camcorder... ;)


I can see slut and chav, although not necessarily in that order.


Neither WIZ nor ZIN are in my Chambers Scrabble dictionary. But it's not an international posh one.

A dictionary?
For Scrabble?
Isn't that illegal?
And surely that takes all the fun out of it?
Basically, wtf?


But BB, I wasn't playing Scrabble... I was just playing with words. And using a reference tool to check what was allowed and what wasn't...

And the reason you need a Scrabble dictionary is for when someone challenges a word. Then you look it up, to see if it's allowed. And the mega Scrabble spods study the dictionary until they know it back to front, and thus have massive Scrabble-valid vocabularies and win Scrabble tournaments left right and centre...

I don't do stuff like that though. I just read about other people doing it.

    Link To Us

    If you love Big Blogger in an almost entirely non-physical way then be a good sort and whack one of these attractive Big Blogger-themed thingies into your sidebar.

    Our Links

    Huge thanks go to Lucy Pepper for her wonderful illustrations.

    Plus, even though he's not blogging anymore, let's remember Watski for coming up with this godawful idea in the first place.

    AND, if you've got 300 years spare time on your hands you could use it to re-read the whole of the original 2005 Big Blogger event. Go on, I dare you.

    The only other place we should really link to is the official BIG BROTHER website. After all, they're the ones who bought the rights to the concept in the first place; we're just adjusting it for our own purposes. I'm sure they'll understand.

    So if you want intellectual stimulation and laughs-a-plenty, stay right where you are. However, if you want boredom, drudgery and maybe some tits and arse, go there instead.

    I know where I'm going. Okay, see you later...

    Legal Mumbo-Jumbo

    The idea may not be original but everything else on here is of our own making and 100% original. So don't go borrowing unless A) you link back to us, or B) you ask us really really nicely beforehand.
