    So instead of visiting this forum lately, I've gotten stuck on facebook. It's been fun reconnecting with old friends (we can live this fantasy life-I've yet to mention to anyone that I've reconnected the details of my difficult child life).

    Anyway...these days I'm plaing farmville and word cafe....

    A few months ago it was farkle and who's got the biggest brain?

    Any other farmville friends out there? I guess I could always use some neighbors.

    I'm on Farmville AND Farmtown. Although.....I haven't really done much with either of them lately. I think I burnt myself out. I'll probably get back to them but haven't yet.

    Fairyland is kind of a cute one and doesn't take much time either.

    I started with Farm Town, and told myself that was all I had time for. Next, I adopted a SuperPet. Then...Sorority Life and Happy Aquarium raised their ugly heads. I got an invite for Cafe World, I think it is, so I set up my restaurant, but I think the game's kind of dumb.

    Fairyland, Stang? Guess I'll have to check it out. In addition to my Facebook tasks, I have Hubby's as well. He says he's on a computer all day at work, and won't go near ours at home. But he has a farm, and a SuperPet...

    Oh, yeah. lol I have dogbook and catbook too. Fairyland huh? and cafe world? I wondered about that one. lol I'm afraid to try any more at the moment. I'm getting piled with too much homework right now.

    But there is always xmas break. :D

    I have heard and read that it is easy to be severely addicted to Farmville. I have avoided it at all costs. I know that if it hooks me I'm in trouble for a few weeks until I shake myself out of the trance.
    Heck I'm trying to not be on the internet as often as I am so I'm avoiding anything that keeps me there. I'm trying to keep to a to do list so time doesn't get frittered away but there is so much interesting "stuff" when I sit down and say "hi" to my cd buddies. I can't just pull away.

    Anyhow, Farmville sounds like fun and has a large following.
    Am I the only one who worries about time disappearing when on line?

    Farmville & FramTown addict here. Actually it has been weeks since I have planted anything due to a night class I am taking.
    I like Farmville better cause the animals make you money. FarmTown feels more like a race and a competition to me.

    I've been very careful to avoid Farmville, etc. Though, I tend to be a quiz taker. I'm going to be a mermaid in my "next" life.

    The Gilligan's Island character I'm most like is........The Skipper! I was not happy! I wanted to be Ginger, or AT LEAST Mary Ann!

    Ok, you addicts...find out how to get me OFF of Farmville. I got suckered in the first day of FB and I want off of that 'game.' Everybody is working my farm. Heck, I haven't even been back.

  14. moonglow

    moonglow New Member son does all those games. I have watched..I don't get it. Doesn't look like much fun to me...but I am not a game person either..never have been. I am boring I guess..don't do games or puzzles. I am horrible at both so probably why I don't do My sister tried to get me into a snowball fight on there and I clicked on 'you win' cause I didn't want to do it. lol. Nate doesn't seem to be addicted to them...he goes back and forth between those games and chatting with friends. He would rather chat then play alot of the time. all have fun!

    Your in good company, Moonglow. I once saw an interview with Martha Stewart and she was asked what WASN'T she good at and she said exactly what you wrote: puzzles and games.

    Abbey, if you figure out how to get off the farm, please let me know! I have purposely avoided all those addicting games like they were the plague! But I keep getting notices from people saying that they worked at my farm, or people sending me things for my farm ... as far as I know, I don't even HAVE a farm! I have never clicked on anything that said "Yeah! Give me a farm!"

    I have all these friends (one in particular) who constantly send me hearts and angels and flowers and balloons and little religious doo-dads and sunsets and rainbows ... ! I don't do any of those things! Every time I click on one of those, it says it's going to go through all my information and all my friends information and the information for the guy down the block who runs the gas station ... then I change my mind and click "Cancel"! And what's the deal about the "Relatives" thing! I already know who my relatives are - don't need that thing to 'find' them for me!

    haha, Donna. I just found where you can get off the emailing list of all those things. If you look at the bottom of the email it has a link to get off of there. I don't want to be mean, but it is just clutter. Gosh, give me a few hours to indulge but I don't have that.

    I am! Actually, my first addiction is FarmTown. I worked so hard to get to the level to put in a watermill and river. I just reached the playground and watertank level. Next level I get a Gazebo!

    Once I reached that level, I turned to FarmVille. That one doesn't take as much work. I did buy two alien cows that are fun to have.

    My latest addiction which is a very strong one is Algerian Patience Solitare game through Mindjolt.

    I just can't keep interest in YoVille or Sorority Life though I do check in once in a while.

    My character name in FarmTown is Addie. If I am in a marketplace, I will usually be standing next to Tom. I don't visit the market much anymore though.
