Cussin' Card Player

Is there anyone out there as stupid as I am to sit here and play Free Cell over and over again until I win? I never knew I was so stubborn or competitive or whatever it is that makes me sit up all hours to finally solve one of these.

It is so stupid because you don’t learn anything by doing it over and over. You don’t know what it was you did wrong to not get it earlier. It is just a chance of finding the right combination of cards to get them all in line.

I also play bridge but against the computer only. I tried going to the bridge rooms and they soon got to know me by my password and as soon as I entered a foursome the room emptied. Have you ever played the trick of filling a plate with a little water and then sprinkle pepper on it and then dropped a drop of Dawn on it and the pepper all disappeared to the edges? Well, that is how it was when I tried to play in the bridge game rooms.

And the dirty comments I used to get if I did get to play a game. Like “Go home” and “who taught her how to not play bridge.” Go back to the beginner’s room. “ And much worse which I won’t repeat. You can tattle on them if they are abusers, but I have never been a canary.

My friend says she plays Free Cell every morning just to see if all her parts are working. I guess that is as good a reason to wasting all the time I do playing this game. It is good for the mind. Won’t get Alzheimer’s they say. I also do crossword puzzles every day but I enjoy those tho I am finding that I should watch TV more and get hep on the rock bands and the rap musicians (did I say musicians?) I must be senile already!

My dad always told me that cards were sin and the tools of the devil. I think maybe he was right in that it does cause me to swear a lot.

I dare anyone to play No. 21664 and if you get it on the first try –don’t tell me. My inferiority complex is hitting me too strongly now. Now the next one I played No. 28874 was a breeze. Did it the first time. Now I feel better.

I must go online to play bridge and see if they kick me out as well, I love a good game of kitchen bridge....I suppose they are all duplicate players...should be fun to get their reaction.
Have a great Sunday.....:-) Hugs

Don't think there's anything wrong with your faculties! I've always loved cards but haven't yet succumbed to online gaming...a matter of time I'm sure. Helena xx

I've never been much for playing games of any kind, or to watch game shows on tv. But I do like a good crossword puzzle, and you're right about needing to brush up on the tv shows, musicians and also actors. These days I haven't a clue what the answers are to those questions. I, too, have heard that these mind games are excellent for warding off dementia and alzheimers, so I guess I should take up this as a new hobby!

You gotta be doing something. What you're doing sounds okay to me! :)

You are so funny! I'm not much of an online game player, but can't start my day without the NYT crossword and a sudoku.

OMG, reminds me of when I used to play tetris over and over trying to get those rods to line up. I can relate to the swearing!

No time these days for computer games, too busy reading great blogs like this one Lol!

My Mac doesn't have games. I do enjoy playing Free Rice though. Makes me think I'm helping my voculary while feeding the world. Don't have to swear to often on that one.

Funny post. Enjoyed it.

I can't play Freecell. Can't understand it. Best I can do is spider solitaire . . . it's a calming thing. Like watching cartoons . . . all the pretty colors...
My brain must be turning to mush.
