Scrabble freaks

Good morning to everyone out there.

I just read a brief Slate article on the national Scrabble tournament that is going on now.

It made me think of odd things that I do in my head and I wonder if others do similar things.

I don't construct anagrams internally and certainly not in the situations that the author is describing, but I do semi-automatically break down words into their proper alphabetical order.

You know, when I see the word McDonalds on a highway sign, I'll twist it around in my brain to be acddlmnos. Maybe for kicks I'll even try to pronounce it (in my head).

Is that odd?
