My Newest Addiction

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!

  2. OMG – I became totally obsessed with Sudoku a few weeks ago and now spend every lunch break doing the online one at USAToday.com. 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…
