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.
