A couple weeks ago, one of my favorite authors sent me an email with a link to Evony, a online multiplayer game. It looked interesting so I signed up an started playing. It was pretty fun, and very easy to get into. But also very time consuming. In fact I found myself near the computer 18 hrs a day keeping up with what was going in the game.

Well, last night the "alliance" I was part of descended into sheer drama, and I realized it wasn't fun anymore. So I quit.

Pulled the plug an a great deal of hard work, and a few people that I was having fun getting to know. But now I have hours more free time, and a gads less drama in my life.

A good choice I think.

P.S. The local newspaper ran a headline this morning that read "Storms Wallop D/FW" which strikes me as particularly red-neckish. Damn, I need to get out of this state.


  1. I searched for storm and wallop to see if other regions use this term and found this link

    I only find it funny because my husband is watching Corner Gas at this moment. Saskatchewan, the Texas of Canada :)

  2. Have you seen Corner Gas? I think you would like it.

  3. No, I haven't seen it. I do remember seeing it advertised and thinking I'd enjoy it. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the link.
