WANTED: Masochists: Half-Dead or Alive!

Wanted:  Masochists:  Half-Dead or Alive.

Read no further unless you are prepared to spend the rest of your days dating your computer.

I’ve become the victim of an online game.  A game with the demeanor of a sadist who readily demeans:  humiliates, mortifies, deflates, and disgraces the player.

Here’s a hint:  it’s a “jumbled scrabble”!  It’s Lexulous!  The ad reads: “You can play live against users…”  My version: “You can pray and prey live against users…”

I had set the controls to level 7 and before I could blink I had a rack of 8 letters with no vowels.  Recalling a positive thought to mind, of how nothing I learn ever goes to waste, I couldn’t find a way to even make a letter of the Jewish alphabet I’ve studied.

I passed on my opening play.  The computer rapidly spread out letters resulting in a very obscure word.  The sound of clapping accompanied this premeditated move.  Whenever anyone or anything! lays down a 7 or 8 letter word the applause is heard.

I’ve heard the sound of clapping directed at me a few times and like a cheap narcotic it’s kept me hooked.

But if the wins have gone to ‘its’ head it won’t be for long because I am still in control (sort of).  I am experimenting right now with crazy letter combinations to make words as yet unknown to me.

The author and poet, Charles Bukowski writes:  “Some people never go crazy; what truly horrible lives they must live.”

Yes!!  Nothing horrible here as I keep clicking and licking my wounds.  I’m no longer my self.  I’ve been electronically changed into a hybrid of blogging and bondage.  Would it be too obvious to add that:  I’m loving it!

WARNING: DANGER

I hear a final warning being issued from the kitchen where it looks like a bomb has exploded, and if it’s not cleaned up soon so someone can get something to eat someone’s going to be in for it…Oooh, goody!

LIGHT ENTERING THE "LEXULOUS" PRISON

Another day – another gamer.

FYI – The Dark Caffe on my Blogroll is working, and I have to exercise patience for it to load, and it’s so worth it.
