Computer Games Challenge February 23 thru March 23
I have never been able to understand how people can get addicted to video and or computer games. Especially adults. After all, they are mindless and an INCREDIBLE waste of time (not the adults, but the games...well, now that I think about it....ANYWAY).
Just for fun, a few months ago I tried out this mindless Bubble Game on my computer (Edie...lol)
All you do it pop the bubbles. Pretty easy. A bit relaxing and a chance to give your mind a break. Over time I pretty much mastered it.
Looking around I found another game called Flash Gold Miner. Well, it was good for eye-hand co-ordination....
Need to use your brain just a wee bit?...computer solitaire is easy and fun.
Each level in the Gold Miner Game is one 1 minute. What's the harm? Reminds me of a Happy Days episode. Richie was drunk and he told his dad that all they had to drink was beer in teeny tiny little glasses. His dad asked how many glasses did he have. his response, "78".
um, Monkeys Are Funny
Too much of even an innocent thing can be ridiculous and a MAJOR time killer. (not to mention, in Richie's case, an awful headache the next day).
I'm done with all silly (and even not silly--if there are any) PC games. No, not forever, but for... hhmmm. ONE MONTH!
I have put a jar on my computer desk. If I even open up a game on the screen, I am going to put 50 cents in the jar. Because I played gold miner this morning before I made this post, I'll even put in 50 cents just to start things off.
HOPEFULLY, the jar will remain empty, but if it doesn't, All the money in it will go to a gift to give away on my blog. It could end up being a dollar store gift or something much more. it depends on my self control. (no fair rooting for me to play more games just to up the ante!)
Everyone that comments today will be entered into the drawing. I will put that list aside and then 3 or 4 more times within the next 30 days I will tell people that the comments that day will go into the drawing. Just think, some of you may get 2, 3, maybe even FOUR chances to win!!!
HOW EXCITING!!! Of course, I don't plan on your prize costing more than 50 cents.... we shall see.
This is a one month challenge I am giving myself, starting today, .
Wish Me Luck!!!!!!!
P.S. And don't worry about me not putting the money in fairly...thanks to Kelly and that dag-gone lying thing, I have to be honest.....sigh* : )
*Also my kids know and they are going to be watching and probably even checking my computer history!*
