More Ways to Spend My Time

I had brunch with a group of friends this morning.  We meet once a month just to keep in touch.  The first question was about what we did for the holidays and what gifts did we receive.  There was a Pandora bracelet and a great-grandchild among the treasures.  Mine was a Kindle Fire.

I would never have purchased it for myself as I do not feel the need to be connected at all times.  I never even turn on my cell phone unless I am going to be away for a length of time - more than several hours.

But once my friends found out I had a Kindle, I was told that I must download 'Words with Friends'.  Everyone was talking about Alec Baldwin playing the game on the plane and refusing to stop.  (Was it being timed?)

So, when I got home and had some free time, I got the app.  Oops.  This could be dangerous.

I love Scrabble.  I used to play with my mother-in-law.  It was a dog-eat-dog contest.  I also played once with a good friend of mine.  He lost the game and never played it with me again.

So, now I have four games going on the Kindle.  I am kicking you-know-what.

For those of you who have time to waste, my ID is deniseh553.  


  1. It amazes me that so many people are playing Words With Friends. Way back when, only a select few of my retired friends played Scrabble. When I started it wasn’t about building vocabulary, the challenge was extracting words in that jumble of tiles. Once I figured out that I could improve by unscrambling anagrams, it all fell into place. Then I got more and more hooked on creating anagrams, as my blog will attest. WWF is an itch that this wordy can’t stop scratching.

  2. Haven't heard of it. Sounds interesting.

    1. The game crashed on the Kindle. Amazon never could figure out the problem. Now I just play the Scrabble app against the computer.
