Addiction

After years of dormancy, I recently rediscovered an old obsession.

Bejeweled!

I used to play this trusty old video game on my old cell phone, years ago. When I got rid of that cell phone, I never bothered to reload it onto my new one.

Well, I just discovered that it was available as a download on iTunes for the low price of 99 cents.

So I downloaded it onto my iPhone. And I'm an addict again!

The only inconvenient thing is that the iPhone doesn't detect the touch of a gloved finger.

So that makes it really inconvenient to play Bejeweled while sitting at a bus stop in the sub-freezing weather (of which we have had much this past week).

I have to take my gloves off to touch the screen, and it doesn't take long for me to lose all feeling in my fingers.

A minor inconvenience. Even if my face and iPhone are covered in icicles, and even if my finger falls off, I'm playing my Bejeweled!

Spoken like a true addict.

If you're willing to spend more than 99 cents, you can buy gloves that let you use a touchscreen. They have metallic material woven into the fingers. Google "touch glove".

Bejeweled is dangerously addictive. Qbeez is deadly! You have to try it if you haven't already!

With anticipation and nervousness, I ate my dinner quickly, showered and crawled into bed with my iPhone so I can have some quality time with Bejeweled before sleepbed. :)

Who needs a man when one can have Bejeweled?!?

OMG I have not played that in forever...I so don't need another time suck

maybe I could play it just once, then I could stop after just one more time

My old game addiction was Flexicon via MSN games. Hey, we like what we like, and why fight it!? :)
