Out, damned spot

Here's why I almost didn't blog tonight. Because I'm FREAKING ADDICTED to the Word Challenge game in Facebook. I can barely log in, then I see that little icon
and I can't. stop. myself.

"Just one game," I tell myself. I LIE. It's never just one. It's, "just one more," and then, "just one more over 15,000," then "just one more over 20,000." Forever on a quest to get better than the Shakespeare guy.

Next thing I know, I've missed the Daily Show and half of Colbert Report and, instead of being wound down and ready to call it a night, I'm all jazzed up and ready to run a marathon. Well, not really get up and run. Just sit there for another hour playing Word Challenge some more.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow

The very sad news is that the poet seems to be the top of the line. You can get a higher score, but for now, there don't seem to be any other avatars. :(

OMG! That's hilarious, because I'm totally addicted to a game too. I know just how you feel! Ha ha! Ok, so there's this game called club penguin, and it's for like 3rd graders right? Well it's so sad because I am totally addicted to it! The mini-games on that game are so fun! TTYL
