THERE we were, minding our own business, reading a blog here, tossing around a few ideas for a post there, when suddenly, out of the blue our thoughts were interrupted by the sound of heavy clicking, as our son marched into our office holding in his hot little hands the laptop computer he borrowed 3 months ago, and has yet to return.
“Hey Mom, check this out” was the last thing we heard before plunging head first into the virtual abyss of Virtual Gaming. We don’t want to shock anyone here, but along with Solitaire and/or Texas Hold ‘Em, there are more than a few ways in which to waste time on the computer, and if you have a moment (which we’re guessing you do) we thought we’d share a few. After all, why should we be the only pathetic losers playing with ourselves today?
THIS first “game” is more of a “Gee, wouldn’t it be fun to have a bunch of wadded up pieces of paper, a fan, a large waste basket at my disposal, and no one to bother me for a few hours?” kind of a thing. In that, if you did have those all things, you might spend and inordinate amount of time trying to toss those virtual paper wads into that stupid wastebasket, after gauging the velocity of the wind from the fan and/or the angle of the toss. And fun would, indeed, ensue. But don’t take our word for it, click HERE and see for yourself. Watch out, this is addictive.
WASN’T that fun? But wait, there’s more. How ’bout a stupid-yet-annoying-yet-colorful game featuring the spread of a virus. Oh come on, you know you want to see what it looks like. If only for the pleasure of telling us what maroons we are for showing it to you in the first place. Just take a quick PEEK, but hurry back, time is money, and our patience is running low on gas. Huh? See what these freaking games do to our brain cells? They’re mush we tell ya, MUSH. Especially the cells responsible for coherent speech and/or good judgement. (not our favorite, but still cute-ish)
TWO more sites and then you can all go play with yourselves, while we shop around for that frontal lobotomy we keep promising ourselves to get.
LINE RIDER MADNESS. “Madness”, because this is harder than it looks and/or should be, and we became extrememly agitated while trying to figure out what the hell to do with that fucking pencil — actually we know exactly what to do with that fucking pencil, and if we ever meet up with the fucker who created this fucking game, we plan to… well, no need to tell you what we plan to do, but suffice it to say it will involve the #2, and it won’t be pretty. You can also try a little VIRTUAL SLEDDING, but be warned, the sledding is virtual, the nausea is not. (what can we say? this stuff makes us queasy)
HEY, did we say 2 more sites? We meant 3 — but only because we saved the best for last. This (actually cool) “game” is about a guy who can fly. Yep. A Guy. Who can fly. Or, as it’s called by the guy who created it, FLY GUY. Oddly relaxing, we have this running in another window so we can keep flying around/bumping into things, even as we wrap up this poor excuse for a post and/or before attempting to wrestle back that laptop computer from our son.
*UPDATE: it would most certainly NOT be a waste of time, virtual and/or otherwise, to check out the GUEST POST on WA today — which features our favorite pair of red glitter lips, aka, that gorgeous LITTLE BLUE PILL.
