I discovered 'Angry Birds' on the iPad.
For those of you unfamiliar with it, stay away. It's worse than crack. It is the dumbest premise in the world: some birds lost their eggs. You find out quickly that these evil pigs stole them. So you have to clear levels by sling-shooting birds into pigs. Really. And the pigs are encased in wood, glass, cement, etc. Seriously, it's brain-numbing, but so satisfying to hit a pig. Sometimes the pigs even wear helmets. Or have mustaches.
It has taken up more time that I dreamed. It's an incredible waste of time and therefore insanely addictive. I was on level 1 for awhile on Saturday morning, and looked up to find that two hours had passed. Scotty learned the concept of "individual play" very well that day while I killed some pigs (along with a lot of time.)
And while the premise is silly, I found myself getting strangely into it by level 2. You find out that the first round of pigs were just decoys (a hoax!) and the birds' eggs are still missing. What? I actually felt offended. As in, if someone took my egg (i.e Scotty), yes, I would be flinging myself into sides of buildings to get him back. So, yeah, I'm going to keep playing until my eggs are returned to me. Hmph.
And hence, the lack of blog entries.
I promise to write more...just as soon as I finish that last level...
