Well "Bee Scary" is the name of this blog for today. "Bee" is for the spelling bee and "Scary" for the Scary Walking Man.
Last night was the big spelling bee and I love watching it. I have problems spelling words sometimes but I love the bee. I really appreciate having a computer to help me spell words. Thanks to Answers.com and the little talking man on there, one website I use a lot. So the winning word was "serrefine" and the winner was Evan O'Dorney (13 years old) from Danville, Calif. The kid does not like the spelling bee, he likes numbers and music notes more then words.
You know I don't know what it is like to win a spelling bee. I compare winning the spelling bee to beating my cousin Marcy in Literati that one time that I did beat her. It was on December 15, 2005, very early in the morning the game ended and I looked at the score and I WON, FINALLY, I WON!!!!!!!!! Then Marcy said "You won and it's your birthday, Happy Birthday." That truly was one great birthday, but that might be how some kids feel. I really don't think Evan felt that way, but maybe he did.

Now onto "Scary Walking Man". My cousin Jon called me yesterday and said that he had been looking at war memorials and he came across "Scary Walking Man" and more. So I went and looked at the pictures (with my mom by my side) and I call these statues "Scary Walking Man and Brothers". These statues represent the Korean War Veterans Memorial. There is one picture of this memorial on Wikipedia of what I call the "Ghost Face Wall" and it is scary too.
Earlier this morning I was on the Korean War Veterans Memorial Home Page. They say that you can come and visit this memorial between the times of 8 a.m.-Midnight. I have to say that you would be nuts to walk around these 7 feet tall statues at midnight. They could literally kill you and put your face on the "Ghost Face Wall". I know I am going crazy, but these are very scary, scary men!!!!!!
Just to let you know there are 19 of those statues and who knows how many faces on the "Ghost Face Wall".
