Daniel Kicks Bottom

Today we ended up getting that new laptop that I requested additional educational funds for so that if I'm ever out of Internet again I can still do my school work. (Is that a run-on sentence?) Anyway, they had a good President's Day sale where I got a very nice laptop for $400. We were playing around with it, and we have the game "Bejeweled" on it. Jeremy plays, and gets the high score immediately (3,700). He plays a bit more, but never makes it past level 3. After a while he lets me play. I play for a while, but I never make it past level 3 and my high score is 3,400. Daniel is dying to play, so we tell him he can play. He beats the first level, then the very first move he makes on level 2 creates so many other automatic moves that he cleared the whole level with one move! Then, he just keeps going, and going, and going. Yeah. He played one game. Final score: 14,500. Nice.

LOL! I'm afraid not. And sadly, they don't grow back once they start to die. That's a comforting thought, isn't it?

There we go! We'll have to get him started now so that he's ready when he's old enough to really play. Who cares if it's violent, and he has to kill people? It'll bring him his college fund!

Then maybe he'll go to school and design games. At that point he'll have enough money to build us our community of earthship homes and we can all retire.

Go Daniel! :)

DC! That's brilliant! I almost forgot about the earthship idea. I understand that there are still places in Wyoming where people can stake claims to property and as long as they care for the property and make something of it (and pay their taxes) they can keep the land.
