A year or so ago I got hooked on the Bookworm game and played it incessantly. In fact, I pretty much played it until I got so good at it that each game lasted forever and I finally stopped playing out of boredom. My favorite game of late has been Jewel Quest and over the weekend I discovered Avalanche. I'd probably play even more games, but I'm on a Mac laptop using Firefox, and most of the games just aren't compatible.
It's dangerous for me to have a laptop with a wireless connection next to the television. I can stay rooted to one spot all day long playing games and watching TV, occasionally breaking away from the game to check the IMDB to sate my curiousity about the age of a particular actor or actress. (Brigitte Nielsen is younger than Flava Flav by about four years. Who'd have guessed?)
I did tear myself away to make pizzas from scratch with my niece on Saturday. She "flatted" her own crust (which I think is a pretty inventive description of rolling out the dough if you don't know the correct term) and selected and placed her own toppings (pepperoni, sausage and cheese). We watched "Shrek 2" and afterward my niece treated me to her rendition of "Holding Out for A Hero."
Even though my niece won't be five until April, she's already learning to read a little bit. She surprised me by reporting that I had the blender set to "Chop" and "On" when I was mixing my protein shake on Sunday morning.
She also quizzed me closely about when I'm going to have a baby (survey says: never), which gave me flashbacks to my own childhood when I did the same thing to my aunt (who eventually did have my cousin, but not until I was a teenager).
So how was your weekend? Did you manage to accomplish more than I did? Did you manage to be even lazier than I was? Let's hear about it!
