"Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself."

Oh how I ADORE my computer games, and oh how I adore it when I play them WELL! 

As often as we possibly can, my boyfriend Chris and I make it our business to find the time to enter into the wonderful world of COMPUTER GAMING.  Upon doing this, we find ourselves totally and completely immersed in a whole other place, where fantasy replaces reality and whatever stresses we had accumulated throughout our day are quickly played away! 

Between all of the EXCELLENT software there is out there (our favorite places to buy software are FRY'S ELECTRONICS and BEST BUY) plus of course the myriad of games and game-like applications that you can access from the INTERNET, there is literally NO LIMIT to the ways in which you can enjoy yourselves!!! 

Naturally, Chris has HIS favorite computer games just as I have MINE, and occasionally, even the twain shall meet, such as when Chris and I find ourselves engaged in a good old-fashioned game which we play over our Network connection.

One of my very favorite online games is known as Mad Gab and yes it's the same one as the game that you may know so well.  It was created by a pretty brilliant programmer by the name of Andy and I recently sent him an e-mail asking him to create a multiplayer version. I have to admit that I'm pretty good at this and it's a wonderful stress reducer.

Another favorite of mine is a game called Farragomate. It is a fascinating brain game that you play by choosing words from a list and making sentences from this list while competing with other players. The results can be quite hilarious as you can imagine. You really ought to give this one a try.

Chris and I have several games that we are both absolutely crazy about...I get the high score and he beats my score...he gets the high score and I beat HIS score. LOL we may NEVER stop competing with one another, and at times the game gets quite intense. We downloaded it right here in the net and one of them is called Break Quest and the other is called Roly-Poly Cannon.

Another game that we love to play competitively (I can't seem to get even a score of 20 on this damn thing lol) is called City Jumper.  It's really addicting and can be quite frustrating, but one day I vow to get on that score board!!!! 

Yes, there is still ANOTHER great game that we love to play competitively and this one is called Cube Buster. It can be found on the website called PC Gadget Free Online Games and there's a lot of other neat games that can be found over there.

And now I must share my absolutely favorite online gaming websites with you. All of them have become near and dear to my competitive heart. Not only do they offer us a chance to play some excellent online games while on the Internet, but they ALSO include the exciting feature of competing against players from all over the planet! 

The first gaming website is called and there are so many great, addicting games there that, well, you'll just have to go over there and see what I mean to know! 

The second gaming website that I cannot get enough of is called and there I have discovered a game that is called InkLink. Come try it!!!!! It's wonderful fun!!!!  Speaking of Shockwave, here is another Shockwave game that is SO addicting that you better be careful, or your eyeballs will become blurry.  It's called Diamond Mine.

The third gaming website is called and the person that runs it certainly didn't leave ANY game out!  The graphics are wonderful, they will keep you engrossed and if you wish, there is even gaming news to read here. 

The fourth gaming website is called Playsite and I'm quickly becoming addicted to a fast-paced (and not too easy) game there called Cascade

The fifth gaming website is called Neave Games and there is a game there called Snake that is sooo difficult and sooo addicting that I dare you to give it a try!  It definitely looks easier than it is and you have to have excellent eye-hand coordination. Please e-mail me and let me know whether you are a slug like I am LOL and what your high score is. I promise I'll let you know what MINE is if you let me know what YOURS is! 

The sixth gaming website is called Electrotank and my first experience here was with a very sweet person who invited me to play my first game of Minigolf. I had myself a wonderful time despite the fact that what I know about golf can be placed upon the head of a pin LOL.

The seventh gaming website is called Uproar and it is there that I found my latest multiplayer addiction which is the old classic tv show game, Family Feud. What a fantastic brain game this is! I just love it.

Perhaps we'll meet in one of these games sometime so if you ever see a player with the screen name Badthing, Badthing_me, Badthingg or Badthing_1, you'll know that it's me and I hope we'll enjoy a game together!
