The Incredible Virtual Eggs

What’s with that title? I think it’s because I’ve that egg council’s song “The Incredible, Edible egg” going through my head as I type this post. Hopefully, it will end when I hit publish, else we’re all in trouble. Hah! Facebook has a lot of interesting games (yes, sometimes annoying timewasters. Hatchlings™ on Facebook is one of the games that allows me to show a gambit of emotions, from excitement at finding an egg, to showing compassion by giving an egg to other collectors and more. Perhaps, it’s the Easter Bunny within me, but finding eggs can be such a thrill. And, of course, the drive to “have them all” or be top in your group keeps one hunting. In this respect, the game might be an adult version of a kid collecting Pokemon cards. 

Some of my favorite eggs collected have included:

The Green Butterfly

(reminds me of a character from the soap opera, All My Children)

The road sign series,

(This egg is one of several in the series. They are found on a tar road versus in the grass).

This next egg just looks delicious,

(it hatches into an orangutan – LOL)

And, in honor of the upcoming V-Day, I’ve to mention

(which becomes a puppy with a valentine – too cute)

Those eggs are some of my favorites. What are yours? Or what’s your favorite game and why? I’ll leave you to ponder these questions while I go hunt some more eggs. TTFN!

Another something to do on the Internet

OMG! It’s a wonder I get anything done lately, especially blogging. I’ve gotten hooked into a couple things… Scramble on Facebook and Plurk. It’s been a total trip, for both are highly addicting! 😀
If you’re in the neighborhood, do stop by and say hi/play with me. My Plurk space definitely needs the help, please. It gives me karma and I need all I can get, in real and virtual life. 😉

Another one for the easily amused

Yeah, I know…everyone’s on the Twitter bandwagon already. People have been photo whores on Flickr for a great while, too. Now, we also have TwitPic, for those people that want that instant picture gratification with no fuss/no muss! Naturally, I love it. I can spend a good five minutes just watching the front page as new pictures pop up from all over the world. LOL

Now, if only I had a decent camera to join in the revolution. Oh wait, that’s the way to break the system. ~evil thoughts hatch~ 😛

Speaking of mean/silly thoughts, here’s a game for the easily amused:

Oh, that’s a fun one – mean, but fun…and disgusting.
~kicks the dog on the way out for getting in the way~ ;P

Fun With Letters – A Game for all

I found an amusing site tonight. Remember how your moms and dada let you play with alphabet letters on the fridge? I know I had plenty of goodies plastered all over it, and then some. How about a site that is one giant refrigerator! And, you’re playing with people all over the world, too!  It’s called Lunchtimers. One can register to play, or just jump right in as a guest (it’s free). Enough chatter…time for the visual.

On the right side of this screen capture you can see one of the first messages I left:
Unfortunately, someone took my “i” in is right before I captured that shot. LOL
After some people being obnoxious, we all started writing to each other. It started with “Hello”, and progressed to locations. On my visit, Japan, China, and Cairo were all there (plus a couple I missed). Some people are rude, of course (saying FU), but others are really creative. But, it’s pretty easy to control the bad seeds. 😉

Once several of us combined to write “Respect for lifetime”. One person arranged this phrase so it also spelled VIP, which was a neat way to work an acrostic in the mix (in picture below). Of course, I had to do at least one shout-out, so I managed to capture this one:
FYI, the phrase references one of my blog friends and her Kawasaki crush. 😉
Anyone wanting to join in the fun should go to Lunchtimers dot com. Who knows, maybe I’ll see you there sometime. 😉
Oh, and I just thought of something else cool about this site – it’s helpful in the fight again Adultitis (a most nasty disease in which one grows old, feeble, and not wanting to play anymore – egad)! 😀
Happy playing!
