My latest reason for having a disgusting house of disorder.

I have been MIA in the blogosphere this week. Last week I posted almost everyday. Something of a record for me lately.

Part of my MIA status has to do with the fact that I have had to work quite a bit more than I usually do. But truth be told, I have sat at my computer, but have spent my cyber time on Facebook instead of blogging. Shocking, I know.

And what was I doing on Facebook? Updating my status? Connecting with long lost friends? No. I was wasting precious time on Bejeweled Blitz. This is a game that is ridiculously addicting. I am pretty sure it is of the devil. Doesn't even the name sound satanic?

And I am not even good at this game. But somehow when each game ends, I can not resist the temptation to try just one more time, to get a higher score. It is bad people, I tell you. And before you know it 30 minutes turns into half an hour and then suddenly you have sat there for hours.

At least when you blog, you have a lovely post to show for your time wasted and housework ignored. I can rationalize blogging into really being time spent on family history work/journal keeping. Right. But not matter how much I try I can not find a good excuse to spend hours switching jewels around to make them disappear.

Oh well, I am not even going to try any more to justify it. I will just embrace my latest addiction, at least it is calorie free.

I hear about people who are on FB all day, and I just can't figure it out! But I've never played any of the games, so maybe that's why.

Now I feel so ashamed about my regency revelry game (hanging my head)

Sandi said...

Ha Ha....Mine is scrabble, I have an ongoing game going with a Samoan friend and it makes me soooo mad because this person who speaks English as a second language can kick my butt every single time....yep so I keep trying "just one more time" It so addicting!

I've wasted my last hour playing that fiendish game. My scores keep going down, so I think I'm either burned out or getting dumber by the day.

Everytime I click on "Play Again?" I wonder if someone somewhere is getting a nickle for every time I sink another minute into that time waster. I just can't figure out how it works.

Facebook really should have one of those pop-ups that reminds you to take a break every half hour or something.

and now you are officially going to be tagged with the new nickname as Satan's HELPER!!! :)

Shelle, if it is all the same to you I would rather have the nick name Satans minon. K. Thanks.

Lisa, I know it is so aggravating. Did you see where Trent sat down in 20 minutes beat my high score it took me days to get. Sheesh.
