A New Way to Waste Time

Jane Yolen has been talking in her on-line journal about a game called
, which she has been finding a little addicting. I was hoping for something a little more sophisticated, something that would be about books and not spelling. But spelling did keep my attention for an hour or so today. And here's a hint--you actually do have to link the letters. They have to be touching. You can't just go all over the board hitting letters in order and figure you've made a word. Come on! Don't try to tell me that no one else thought that was how you played the game.

A New Way to Make Good Use of Time

The day after Thanksgiving I thought I was going to have some time to do some reading and do some outlining/planning. Instead I ended up spending two hours putting plastic up on a relative's windows. I couldn't believe it.

The next day I went to the Laundromat with a book and a notebook and slam! bam! I sat down and ideas immediately started coming. We've been having water problems here for the last month so I've been at the Laundromat a lot. Looking back, I realize I've done a lot of good work there. One day I brought a rough draft, made all kinds of changes and wrote a new piece to go with it.

Needless to say, I love the Laundromat.

Someone is coming out next Monday to fix our water system. What will I do then? I'm thinking of just going down to the Laundromat and hanging a few times a week. They have a soda machine, and there's a Chinese takeout right next door. I could go down, do lunch, and get some work done.

They will miss the Metin2 gold and they will try their best to play this game to get the joy. As long as they earn the Metin2 yang they will be happy and they think the game is very interesting. Of course they have to have a lot of Cheap metin2 gold by themselves. Sure, that process of achieving will have its unpleasant and disagreeable aspects.I am lonely so I play the game and Buy metin2 gold to give my friends. They also give me a lot of Cheap metin2 yang while playing the game.
