When I was a little girl one of my favorite Atari 2600 games was Adventure. However, the "dragons" terrified me, and whenever they appeared on the screen I would scream. My mother had to take over the game for me and escape their clutches. I think once I even cried from fear. Later, in my teens I loved Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers - except for the mushroom jumping. TERRIFIED. If I fell off a 'shroom I would scream. I scream a lot. You can ask my friends. Anyway, the point is that I get waaaaaaaay to attached to characters in games. I cannot seem to separate myself from the avatar. So if Mario fell to his death, I thought *I* was falling to my death. If my little cube was being chased by a dragon, I felt like *I* was being chased by a dragon.

Now I've over on Facebook playing an incredibly stupid Vampire game and a Pirate game. I am trying to save up blood to buy some vampire trait so that I can advance to the next stage but people keep fighting me and stealing my blood. Likewise, over on Pirates people keep stealing my treasure which is stopping me from building my tariff station. I'm not as upset about the Pirates thing, because I make a lot of treasure, but that blood is difficult to come by. Plus, it kind of sucks losing over and over. It's seriously hurting my feelings! I really need to stop playing these games for my own sanity. Then again, I am hoping playing will break me of these attachment issues. It really is a miserable personality flaw.

I am a TERRIBLE pirate, by the way. I never attack anyone. I did at first, but when I did I would attack once, and if I won I would pick a different target. So seeing that the same person has attacked me five times in a row strikes me as awful and enrages me. You don't kick someone when they are down!! Except, I suppose if you are a pirate or a vampire you do. (Again I reiterate, me = really bad pirate. *grin*) Now I have completely given up on attacking. I just click the plunder button to build up treasure so I can buy islands and build tree houses. :)

Adventure icons works in process. I want to make a moving one that says "going on an adventure" or something, but I'm too tired. Also, today I'm vaguely depressed.

Honey... these personality flaws are just some of the reasons we love you. I can picture your screaming while playing a game. :D
