Well, I almost broke my promise to myself to post something every day. Why? Because I am being compulsive. I mean desperately, tragically, soul-suckingly compulsive.
I discovered a while back that Onespirit.com offers free trial downloads for games. What makes this particularly wonderful is that the timers don't work, so you can play for as long as you don't turn the computer off. Right now I am obsessed with Aveyond I: Rhen's Quest. I am fighting monsters and exploring and having an irritatingly hard time making progress. I have rescued one out of 8 (yes 8!) Druids, from demons who have frozen them. It feels like very slow going, but how can I leave 7 stranded Druids and a world in peril? I must persevere until the benevolent (or perhaps not so benevolent) gods who have given me this free game, decide to take it back.
Meanwhile, I have to keep this short. There are Druids and elves and fairies to be saved. And of course there is also me to be saved. I have to finish so that I, too, can be set free. Wish me luck.
