I have succumbed to Angry Birds.

If you haven't downloaded Angry Birds on your phone-- DON'T DO IT! SAVE YOURSELF!


Himself, wiseacre that he is, nudged me repeatedly to download it. He kept saying how people he works with really enjoy it. He'd heard how fun it is. He thinks I'll really like it.


So I downloaded it a little before the holidays. I think the first night I played it until about 5:30 am. I worked through all the levels in about 3 weeks of on/off heavy play.


Every once in a while I find out there's an updated, I update the app and spend a few fevered day working my way through the new levels.

Like I said-- don't do it to yourself. Come to that, I need to come up with a really special way to thank Himself for delighting me with this obsession.


Oddly enough... there was something oddly familiar about one of the characters... He doesn't look like Himself, but his moustache does:







Yes, that lipfur is large and in charge. If that pig had a fountain pen and glasses, I'd swear he'd lost a twin one day in a Maltese hospital forty odd years ago.







To my delight, I found this little gem on Etsy-- some clever person rendered a Moustachioed Pig in crochet. To my dismay-- said hat has been sold. *le sigh* Anyway. I'll be watching for another hat like this, and when it comes up, it shall me mine. Oh yes. It shall.

I'm glad my phone isn't smart enough to distract me like that...

Excuse me while I die laughing at the comparison of himself to one of the pigs from Angry Birds...

There is a level (Hang 'Em High) that features these pigs in rather Western attire...

(Now, go download Seasons and Rio and complete your addiction!)
