I have this thing about playing Scrabble on Facebook

I was checking my Scrabulous stats (desperate for something to post at 9:30 p.m., if you must know), and I found a list of the most impressive words I've played since I've started. I only know what about half of them mean as I've been doing a lot of cheating. I've recently sworn off using Scrabble word-building sites, however, so I'm losing a lot of my games but I'm using a small percentage of my mind again, which, I am told, is the entire point.
