Do you know what Interlope means?

You may have noticed that I added a couple of new items on my sidebar, one of which is a link to freerice.com.

Ari has very enthusiastically been telling me about this game that they have been playing at school and I really didn’t think much of it, but decided to check it out today…you have to go try it.

It’s a vocabulary game that each time you get one correct they donate 20 grains of rice to the WFP (World Food Program). Although that doesn’t sound like much the website says that in the first five months they generated enough rice to feed 1 million people. Pretty awesome, right? And it’s addicting…I only played for a couple minutes because I’m at work, but I already want to go back and see if I can’t get my vocabulary level up. I was up to level 36, but it goes all the way to 60 so I have a lot of work to do :) Anyway, go check it out and then come back and tell me what level you got to. It’s fun and helping people all at the same time. So click the link below or the one on my sidebar and have fun.

Help end world hunger

Oh, by the way, interlope means to intrude.

Very addictive-I got to 40 and am too tired to feed anymore.

I got up to 1060, but I had to stop for time reasons. Very addicting! But what a great idea! I'm glad you're doing it...perhaps I should add it to my link, too...hmmm...

Very addicting. I had to stop and finally do some work. I didn't feel too guilty though because I think of it as broadening my knowledge.
