"...less boring..." I think you're right.  But wow, someone else remembers 

One of the shames of my teenage years was that they used something I sent 
in - two years or so after I sent it; it would have been cool to have been 
mentioned when I was 12, but was very *very* embarrassing when I was 14.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
