Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
earlier, I was watching an episode of the West Wing. And there was this shot where donna was standing in front of josh doing some paperwork, i dunno what she does, anyway she was wearing a red dress and he was wearing a black suit and i smiled because ive been playing too much solitaire that it felt good to see the cards stacked like that except they were people, not card.s
then, about an hour ago i was tidying up a bookcase and there was a vintage (not old, its a brand) copy of brave new world, and it had a red spine. and there was a copy of dracula, with a black spine. perhaps you can see where this is going. anyways, when i had finished stacking the books neatly i stood back and oh shit, all the books on the shelf went red spine, black spine, red spine black spine.
it's like every spare second, every possible free nano-moment between typing or browsing the internet or anything else on the computer i immediately open solitaire and start clicking away. furiously. i always go for fastest time, unscored, because you can tell after about ten slots whether or not your're going to beat your're time so you can start over real quick. my fastest time is now 32 seconds, which has been attained from nearly six thousand games of solitaire. you can tell i go for speed because i only have a 32 per cent win record which i try really hard to keep because of the nice symmetry with my best time. often i just quit and start over and over again until i get a good start, which is usually a couple of aces and some empty card spots for kings.
its like, im starting to stack things on my desk in rows. im wearing one red sock and one black sock right now. im not even kidding. how can i stop playing solitaire? this is becoming a very serious problem.
