I had a whole different post lined up and written in my head—what, they don't count when you write them in your head?—but I have managed to spend the entire evening embroiled in one enormous, never-ending, multi-player game of Draw Something instead, and so that one's going to have to wait.
What, you haven't played Draw Something? Don't do it. Seriously, I'm begging you not to do it, because you will waste untold hours of your life drawing sherrifs and togas and frighteningly accurate likenesses of Kanye West on your phone screen, using only your pointer finger and a healthy dose of procrastination. I only discovered Draw Something this evening when Sean sent me the link, and I already fancy myself an amateur Van Gogh. I mean, I'm weighing up whether I even need this left ear anyway. Might as well go the whole hog if you're going to do the artist thing, you know what I'm saying? Hell, that's why we have two!
Draw Something is basically like Pictionary, except you play against invisble people in your phone. For an hour or so, I was playing only Sean and my sister, and then I got restless and put out a blanket call on Twitter for people to play with me, and now I've got 24 games on the go and I'm really adept at drawing Tina Fey. I'm this close to adding that skill set to my LinkedIn profile, you guys. No, really, it's uncanny how well I can do her scar!
Okay, so maybe I need to work on my J-Lo, though.
If you're looking for a frighteningly easy way to lose an entire evening and you're fresh out of absinthe and opium—darn it, I always forget the opium when I pop out to the store for milk, don't you?—I guess I could grudgingly admit that you should give Draw Something a go. Just make sure you have your affairs in order before you do, okay? Like, maybe bathe and do some laundry and feed your cats or something. You won't be doing any of that again for a while.
