King of Hearts, It's Me


Pauline, she doesn't stand a chance.

Jennifer, in your dreams tramp!

Ben, get real! I'll make you say Uncle-in-law!

Who are these minor leaguers? They are the other "players" on my computer's game of Hearts. Forget solitaire, that game is solo, Hearts, the computer sets you up against three of the best players it can find inside the casing of the CPU and, in my case anyway, I drill them, dumping points on them like Dean goes through adjectives describing his quads (that's a lot.)

The game ends when the first player hits 100 points, whoever has the low score wins. The last game, I was barely in double-digits when Pauline, Jennifer and Ben all hit the 120's. Yeah, just to rub it in there little cyber-faces, I shot the moon on them, even though victory was already a sure thing. What a bunch of rubes!
Er, yeah, it may be time to start running again before work. Ya think?

Minesweeper for me.

Minesweeper, again, you're not even playing against real fictional people! Just the computer, what fun is that! If I can whomp on other people (non-living as they may be) I'd just as soon read! Phooey on that!

Here's a game we can all play, you guys get a picture of me, I'll just use me. Now hold up that picture, I'll just use a mirror. Now, we look at the way that I am better that you (this may take a while.) Oh, wow, I am even better than myself, this is like when that guy said, all he could do was lie, he could never tell the truth, and then he said, "I Lie." I never knew if he was lying or not, I still think about that...

Ok, this is exciting.. Live action, right now the score is, Pauline 52, Jennifer 76, Ben 53, Me 1! I can seriously mess up and still kick computer generated butt! I'll let you know how it ends...... 78, 117, 53 and me, 18. I took a hit, there, but still, if we had been betting. Ok, now off to work, I swear!

What's Aman doing in Cali?

AndyMan said...

If a guy has time to play hearts before work, he may as well do it in California!

Maybe I'll look up Dean, er, I mean look down, because he'd give it all just to be over 5'6", poor lil guy

Obviously, you're not going to post something new until you get your Juice. Okay, can we get some more stuff now?

AndyMan said...

Aw, Juice, is she any relation to Fig?

Juice and Fig are cousins, I think.
