This post brought to you by the letter 'P'

I love puzzles. Puzzles are what I live for. Anything from jigsaw to word scrambles to Tetris. There really isn't a puzzle I don't like (except slide puzzles and Rubik's cubes..... Those are impossible and boring). When I'm bored and don't have much to do (or do, but am too lazy to do it), I will usually whip out a puzzle. If I 'm on a long drive with my DS, it'll usually be Sudoku, but about 300 puzzles later, I'll be the first to say it's gotten a little dry. My number one time wasting puzzle, though, is web based, as I spend way too much time on the Internet. This little life destroyer was introduced to me by none other than Bessie. What game could this be, one I've surely spent 150+ hours playing? Why, Text Twist, of course. No matter how many times I play this game, I can't put it down. I'll be writing a seven page paper due in less than 12 hours, be stuck on page 3, and my mouse will lead me to text twist, where I'll keep saying "after this game, I'll quit". I finally found a logical argument to stop my brain from playing. I tell it that only if I get all of the words, I can keep playing. Needless to say, I got my paper in with absolutely no time to spare. What is it about puzzles that's so addicting???

My latest addiction is a game that everyone should play. It's called Picross, and is on the DS. I've beaten pretty much all of the standard puzzles on it, but being in Japan, I missed a lot of the downloadable puzzles, which I'm slowly completing. My mind can never rest, and whenever I start a new puzzle, I always am thinking of solutions, even when I'm not playing. Does that make me clever, or pathetic. Yeah, I'm pretty pathetic....

i actually loved kenley's puff dress what's wrong with teal and purple? i must say that has to be one of my favorite color combinations! i just don't like her cackling... lol.

oh yeah and brook sheilds was a bitch about blayne's outfit, he made what he sketched and she chose. i think lauryn hill said it best in sister act 2 when she said, "it was good for what it was, but it wasn't all that."
