If you’re irritated that I haven’t been posting, here’s the man to blame.


  1. OK, well that’s no excuse.

    And question.. your RSS feed is abominally slow. It just came up on my reader. Am I the only one with this problem..?

  2. I tried to read that other site but my brain began to fog over… was he talking about some kind of video game?

    I’m still an Atari girl, what can I say.

  3. While I couldn’t quite figure out the exact nature of that game, it seemed like incredible fun. Do you know of anything like that in other parts of the country? I’d love to try something like that…

  4. I want to know where those Games can be played in Europe :'(
    *want want*

  5. You left the queen to watch Squirrely while you solved a game for 2-3 nights??? She must be awesome…I get aggravated when my husband plays a video game for 1-2 hours and leaves me to watch the kids, clean the house, etc… LOL

    The game sounds like fun – I would play it but get a sitter.

  6. Wow!

    Bonus points for using the word ‘hornswaggling’ in your response.

  7. This sounds remarkably like a puzzle series played at MIT, the annual “Mystery Hunt”. I read about it in the June issue of Discover magazine. (

    I would love to participate in something like that, but I’m notoriously bad at puzzle solving. For example, if I try to do the New York Times crossword puzzle, I’m glued to the Google web site the entire time.

  8. Um, am I going to sound like a complete idiot here, but I swear I played “dating” games like this in college. We called them “Road-Rallys.”

    I think you guys are taking it to a whole other level though.
