Well, I had a guest blogger think of a title for this post. I’d like to say a big thank you to Lane for stretching her paw onto my keyboard before I started typing. Thank you Lane for your contributions to the blog title.
A friend of mine messaged me complaining that I had been neglecting my blog and therefore she had nothing to do at work. Well, I wouldn’t want people to actually have to do work at work, so this blog post is for her. I admit I do neglect the blog sometimes, I go through spurts. It’s not that I don’t want to write posts, but that my great ideas for posts always come to me when in bed, in the shower, in the car, or way too involved in a Netflix marathon to actually get anything typed and posted. Besides the normal resolutions of losing weight, limited my curse words, cutting back on the alcohol, blah blah blah, I think I’m going to throw “blog more” into the mix.
At the very top of my resolution list is to win a game of “Words With Friends”. Seriously! Anyone with an iphone knows this totally addicting game of knock-off scrabble. I was really into when I first got my iphone last year, then I just lost interest, but I go reintroduced to it when a co-worker of mine in Korea (he’s from California, but lives in Korea now) asked me if I played. Of course, I immediately jumped at the challenge. I think very highly of myself when it comes to games and I’ll admit I’m a poor loser. We’re 10 games in and I haven’t one a single one. A SINGLE ONE!! It’s ridiculous! Even when I’m winning the entire game and we each have 5 letters left he somehow manages to pull a 60 point word from
his ass thin air and win!
As I’m typing right now I have 3 letters left in game 10 and I’m up by 30 points! I’m still waiting for my phone to beep and the message saying “……..beat you!”. I don’t know how he does it, I’ve even tried to cheat for a few games and I still can’t win. I’ve resorted lately to just throwing a bunch of letters down and hitting “play” hoping that its accepted as a word.
Is it really too much to ask to just win one stupid game of scrabble, just one!!
and as I see the final word played by my korean nemesis and realize that he was 5 points behind me and left it wide open for me to play my final 3 tiles for 16 points and wint he game! I send a nice little chat message saying “FINALLY I WIN I WIN I WIN I WIN!!” Is it really wrong to gloat when he beat me 9 times in a row?
