Now for my second set of words for you, and these are significantly more cheerful. I just have to wonder, am I the last person on Earth to get behind Words With Friends (WWF)? I think I might be. But you know what? I'm just glad that I'm finally on board. As an English major, any time I can play a word game I am happy as a clam. A clam that get seriously un-happy when I have 4 N's, an E, an I, a Q and a Z. Because REALLY? Or oo, oo, the eternal word-game problem when you have all vowels. It's too bad I can't spell the noise that my brain is making in frustration, or I'd get 14 points!
I love being able to play against my real life friends though, except when they are totes slow and I am waiting 12 hours for them to play a word. Just check your game, people! Don't leave me hanging! Lucky for me I have like, 10 games going at once so I usually have something to do.
Two beefs - One: I am back on a Facebook game. Every time I think I break free. Every time I leave my farm or my mafia or my fishtank behind, let it go, free myself... I'm sucked back in. This time by beautiful, beautiful words. And I wouldn't have to be attached to the world of Facebook if I didn't live in the dark ages and just had an iProduct. But I don't. Yet. (Is it ridiculous to actually consider getting an iPhone so I can play Words With Friends more conveniently? - The answer: A Resounding Yes.)
Second beef: For whatever reason when I first open up WWF it totally freezes up my browser. I don't know if it's really labor intensive on my computer, or if it's not all that friendly with Firefox, or if it's just the E.M.P. fetus I have inside of me... but it's super irritating. If I just leave it open in a tab then there's no issue when I open up my laptop, although earlier today I was having a lot of "not responding" time from Firefox, so that leads me to believe I'm back to the worn out computer. My computer is neither that old nor that slow, so it shocks me that a web browser game can dominate its capabilities so easily. When I asked my Facebook friends about this issue in a status, all I got was a lot of invitations to play and made fun of for not playing WWF on an iProduct. You are all so helpful.
So what's your most celebrated WWF moment? So far one of my greatest was playing the word "kraken". I released it, to much joy.
