I never find myself in front of the computer anymore. I have had two main obsessions that have been keeping me away.
1) Secret of the Stole II. I am a pretty competitive person and thus often set unrealistic goals for myself. Last summer (the summer of the houseguest I like to call it) I signed up for mystery stole 3, but was never able to keep up with the weekly clues as I can’t knit lace and talk to people at the same time. I then signed up for secret of the stole last year, but never ended up even starting that project because I felt guilty about not finishing the mystery stole first, so when secret of the stole ii rolled around, I told myself that I would keep up with the weekly clues. I just finished clue 5, so I’m still meeting my goal…barely. Pretty huh?
2) The DS game Professor Layton and the Curious Village. I don’t even like playing video games, but Evan bought this game on Friday and I was pretty much obsessed with it the entire weekend. The game pretty much consists of a huge number of logic puzzles. I highly recommend it to anyone that likes logic puzzles.
It’s funny because when I bought Evan the DS for Christmas, I was concerned that it might be damaging to our marriage because he would be playing it when I wanted to be social. I wouldn’t have thought that the only damage to our marriage would be the bickering over whose turn it was to play Professor Layton.
