Farming if you will

As I mentioned the other week I am the recent and proud owner of an iPhone.  I have been good about not downloading an insane amount of aps, in fact I have only paid for 3 so far.  The other day whilst killing time I downloaded "Zombie Farm" (perhaps against my better judgement.  As someone who has been beyond annoyed seeing all the farmville updates on facebook, I can assure you this download was very out of character.  However, I  have become really addicted to it.  I can't actually say why.  Beevs30 asked me today "what does one farm in Zombie Farm"? to which I responded " zombies and produce" (obviously?!) It seems like such a pointless game but I am strangely deriving pleasure from watching my zombies conquer surrounding territories....who have I become?

Love makes hunters of us all

NotsoWise and myself occasionally do a long distance book club. It mostly consists of us picking a series of books and reading them. We occasionally text and email to see if the other has got to a certain part yet, or what we think about different characters or story lines. So far we have stayed in the fantasy genre- successfully finishing the Sookie Stackhouse books and the Mercy Thompson series. We recently started reading Gregory Maguire's Oz books. I had Wicked already and I read it about 10 years ago so I definitely had to re read before moving on. As I've been going through it I have remembered nothing, however I have had a neat experience in that I used to underline passages quotes sections that spoke to me. Some of them still stood out to me this time around, such as this blog title- I have no idea what it really means but I love how open to interpretation it is!

New technology

I got an upgrade to an iPhone last weekend-and I must say I'm in love. I really didn't think it would be that different than my blackberry but for the photo aps alone it's just such a sweet phone! I have been trying to figure out how to do a post alongside the photos but it doesn't seem to work. And by that I mean I havent figured it out yet
