Now you can hate me, too.

Sigh. It's not like I look for ways to spend time on the net, but sometimes I run into something and, well, I'm hooked. The addiction this time? I've found Babble.

The great thing about Babble from a writer's perspective, of course, is that it's all about words. OK, sure... if you delve into it, there's some words in each puzzle that you and I will never use. But that's not the point. You don't have to try and solve the grid. The fun is in the fact that you have 24 hours to try... and a few short visits each day satisfy me tremendously. Plus there's a fine community of fellow addi... players who will chat with you.

Anyway, if you like Boggle or Scrabble then you'll probably like Babble.

And really, I apologize for mentioning it, but I know I'll feel less guilty if you're all over there with me. And hey, this is my blog, so it's all about me!

I'm ignoring you and your suggestions...Last time someone mentioned something like this (Gail Gauthier and Bookworm) I lost a weekend!

LOL, Kelly. Probably wise. Though one thing I like about Babble is that I can't endlessly click "new game" like I could on prior addictions (links not shared to protect the innocent). Still, Babble prolly could chew up some good working time....

84 words, 780 points. Way past my bedtime. It's all your fault.

No blame, Elisa. THANKS. Besides, if you have to blame, blame the commenter above you. He designed that pesky, addictive game. (P.S.: 137/1839)
