My Newest Addiction

Posted on Oct 6, 2005


I’ve never been good at crossword puzzles.  You would think as an English major, I would be able to do them in pen.  I don’t think I’ve ever solved a single one.  They are just maddening to me.  Recently the game Sudoku started showing up in my local newspaper.  It’s all about numbers and patterns, something I can’t seem to get enough of.  I just started doing them this week and I’m in hog heaven.  There is only one rule to the game: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3 x 3 box contains the digits 1 through 9.  Sounds super easy, but it’s really not.  I’m totally hooked!


  1. I’ve tried to figure out that game and it continues to stump me. STUMP ME!
    Share your knowledge please!
    I’m in awe.

  2. OMG – I became totally obsessed with Sudoku a few weeks ago and now spend every lunch break doing the online one at We are such co-geeks!

  3. I saw this in the airport magazines. Started to try to solve it and then all the numbers just started to blur and I couldn’t care enough anymore.
    How is the Dan Brown book? Totally relevant a couple months ago with the new papal election and all. I’m reading Tales of the City now. LOVELOVELOVE it. Wondering how it did on the small screen…
