Wow. That sounded dirty and I bet quite intriguing for those of you who are technically challenged.
Anywho. I heart this gadget so very, VERY much. I love listening to my tunes while I play games and read blogs. I can even play Bejeweled Blitz and update my staus on Facebook without leaving my bed.
It is the perfect toy to suck the time right out of your day!
And with Wi-Fi connectivity you can even play games against other
My favorite game at the moment is Words With Friends, which is much like Scrabble. You can create a game with a random opponent or you can enter the screen name of someone you know.
A feature of the application will also let you connect through Twitter and Facebook to announce to all of your friends that you are looking for opponents.
I did this numerous times and had just one nibble. Mochamomma took the bait. Great, I was going to have to play against an assistant school principal, one whom...who...um? (see, she's got me all sorts of confused) was previously an English Teacher.
I really needed to begin other games. There was no way I was ever going to win against her. I started to search with names of bloggers I know or stalk.
After a few failed attempts, I got a hit. DawnsDiversions is one of my favorite people in the blogging community. YAY!! I sent a request to her and such began
Dawn gave me another name to punch into the keypad, JonniBaloney, who I wished lived near me, because I KNOW we'd be BFF's for life. How do I know this? Because she collects points for using words like TURD. And then she points it out, making sure I am aware of it, and then giggles like a school girl. Totally awesome chick in my book.
TheMomJen is, of course, younger than me ('cause really? everyone seems to be) but we do have the same amount of
Adriennevh is my Facebook buddy. She and I gift each other Farmville items, Cafe World food, and Mafia Wars energy packs. So, this? Totally inevitable. She's my homegirl.
And finally, MissBritt. This woman, she is my blogging hero. She makes me laugh, cry, and most of all think. And now that I'm having to use MY brain to challenge the likes of her, I'm REALLY having to think. I can't be using words like dog, hat, and TURD with her. Okay, maybe TURD, I don't know, she might giggle at that too.
Words With THESE Friends has become my total addiction. I play, I lose, and I re-match.
But I noticed something the other day and it kind of creeped me out.
I was sitting on the ummmm...throne and was playing a round of WWF. What? I gotta do something to pass the time.
Suddenly I had this overwhelming feeling that I was being watched. I looked around. I was alone. (Yes, believe it or not, with three kids and absolutely no privacy, I.WAS.ALONE!)
The hair stood up on my arms. I looked down at the screen on the iPod and a chill ran up my spine.
Could she see me? My hero, Miss Britt? DID.SHE.KNOW.I.WAS.POOPING?!
I quickly turned off the power and put the iPod, face down, on the vanity.
The word TURD is no longer funny.
P.S. I am MrsSchmitty on Words With Friends....challenge me to a game....you'll walk away feeling like a genius!
