I tend to have an advanced vocabulary, as evidenced by the plethora of verbiage that tends to spew forth from my mouth. But I suck at word games.
At least that’s what I’ve discovered after the sovereign Elle from Blue Monkey Butt and the inimitable Impulsive Addict have proven after they’ve gotten me hooked on playing Scramble With Friends over the weekend.
They have been seriously kicking my butt. Big time.
But I’m a glutton for punishment, so I keep playing. And losing. From the brain freeze I experience each time I see that two-minute timer, to the mixture of letters with words begging to be discovered, to my clumsy fingers on the touch screen, I haven’t been able to come close to their competitive scores. At all. But I’m now addicted thanks to those two, in spite of my lack of ability to envision any semblance of words even cross-eyed.
But I’m having fun. Even as a loser.
If you want to feel like a winner, find me on there (StacyUncorked, of course) so you can kick my butt too. Or maybe, just maybe, I’ll be lucky to find another brain-freezer and finally be a winner. Or at least have a better comparable score. Any takers?
Remember the pretty new driveway we had put in last November? Here’s a memory refresher:
That’s the view looking back towards the house from the barn. In case you were wondering. With all the excessive warm summer-ish weather we had (up until this week, where Old Man Winter is apparently having the last word), since the driveway used to look like this…
…stubborn pesky persistent dandelions started growing up through the pavement, especially towards the front of the driveway. About seven of them right down the middle. The biggest one looked like a mini volcano – with a sprout of green poking out the top.
I had every intention of getting out there and taking pictures, but the driveway guys were too reliable and came out Friday to fix it, totally thwarting my blog fodder. If any more sprout up, I’ll be sure to get out there and take pictures before calling the driveway dudes.
Do you ever have a song get stuck in your head when you hear it play on a show you’re watching? That happened to me last week when I was watching Hart of Dixie. At the very end of last week’s episode a great song started playing called “Once I’ve Done It” by someone I’d never heard of, April Geesbreght. Of course I did a fanatical search trying to find it, but it’s not available anywhere. I found her on ReverbNation, Facebook and Twitter and have now officially begun to stalk her to see when she’ll make the song available for purchase.
I love how some shows will find unknown artists and utilize their songs. It makes it fun – albeit frustrating sometimes if you can’t find the info you need – to discover new artists with some amazing music. Here’s hoping April’s song is available soon, I’d love to listen to it again. And again.
