Oh Yeah Baby, That's The Good Stuff!

My name is Ansley and I'm a Sudoku-oholic.

It started so innocently, bored on a plane ride at Christmas, I opened the in-flight magazine to do the puzzles and, never having heard of this game, did one. After my first taste, I could have easily turned back never to do it again. But then I was given a book of them for Christmas a few weeks later. I just did it recreationally at first, once here, once there. But now I think about it when I'm falling asleep, bored in class, or have a few minutes at the hospital and wish I had one. I find my thoughts returning to them more and more. Anyone out there who wants to start a support group with me?

This game is so addictive! I've been trying to avoid it so much!
Ugh. The worst is that games like this are all over the internet -- prime lurers for procrastination!

I can attest to that Tamara! Is it bad to admit that I have to play on Websudoku.com every day? Yes it is, but it is like a compulsion that I can't stop. I tell myself I don't need to go to the website, but next thing I know, 30 minutes have gone by and I have work to finish.

I have my parents to thank. They are the ones who told me about them and then proceeded to say how they thought I would be good at them, which unfortunately, got me to try one. My whole family is hooked. Megan even wanted to take a Sunday paper one into a movie theatre with her. My parents have stacks of empty squares printed off so that we can all do the same puzzle and have races, etc.
