ThePeach and TigerCat Make Exciting Purchases

TigerCat and I went to Shopper's DrugMart tonight. We had both had long days. TigerCat now has a desk job similiar to mine, so she too is learning the paradox of the exhaustions that come from sitting on your ass reading celebrity gossip online all day. Sometimes I also play 'bloons. That's a computer game where a monkey sits on this cloud and throws darts at ballons, and you only have a limited number of darts and the balloons sometimes contain special weapons like boomerangs and...holy sacred mother of balls. I am wasting my life. On celebrity gossip and 'bloons.


I loathe myself.


Anyway, TigerCat and I went to shopper's DM tonight after we mailed our mom an obligatory mother's day present. They didn't have any cards that said "Thanks to you I have 3 fathers and no sense of self worth" or "Every day I pray that crazy skips a generation", so I just sent her a potted plant.


So, TigerCat and I were standing in the checkout line at Shopper's, both of us exhausted and bleary eyed from a day full of 'bloons, when we had the following conversation:


TigerCat: *looks at the items in her basket* Jesus christ, I'm buying Q-Tips and a carton of milk? This is so fucking sad.

ThePeach: You're telling this to someone buying a 16-pack of toilet paper and a 99 cent can of salmon.

TigerCat: You win.

ThePeach: I do win.


Just another exciting night in my thrilling life.

Enjoy. So far I've made it to level 25. I have no life.

Cleavage said...

You bitch...you've got TheEnglishman and I playing this instead of having cybersex, which is the ONLY sex I get right now. Bitch.

Billy said...

Without question the most addicting, yet pointless game I've come across since Snood....

The Peach said...

You read my mind, Billy. God. I rocked Snood so hard. It was the reason my GPA dropped so much between 1st and 2nd year. Well, that and all the drinking and the sex. And the drunk sex. And the sexy drinking.

I don't know where this is going.

thepilot said...

That's why I got out of the corporate world. You should too. Become a pilot. They're sexy.

Cleavage said...

The grammatically incorrect "AddictingGames" title should've tipped me off to what I was getting my brain cells into...but no, I had to follow the link.

Billy said...

Okay, so now that I've completed all 50 levels I can resume my life.

That's three hours of my life I'm never going to get back.

I hate you.

Billy said...

Nope, no additive or compulsive personality here!

(yikes....)

Chalk up one more person to whom you owe some serious wasted work time.

Cleavage said...

Billy, how did you get past level 30 ("Ice Bounce") where you have to freeze some of the balloons and then bounce the dart off them? I'm stuck and it's making me twitch.

The Peach said...

I am also stuck on this goddamn level.

Billy said...

The way I did it (and yes, it took somewhere close to forever) was to blow up a bunch of them without freezing anything, then freeze the 'bloons that are a layer lower with the remaining freeze-'bloon, and bounch your dart at something closer to 45ยบ, instead of the ridiculous angle I tried for like 20 minutes.

Oh my god.. I used to play this game... it's so fantastic!

the legend said...

Yea, boons is fun. After I beat it I was bored again. Then I found a link to more bloons

Bloons has a sequel folks. Expect productivity to drop even more.

wow...i am sitting here in peru drinking $0.50 drinks and reading these comments and i noticed that all the directions are in spanish...awesome!! this seemed like an important message to pass on in my current state...but then singing along to all the 80s rock-tunes playing in the bar also seems of utmost importance right now...
anyway, i don't have time (or enough sober brain cells) to try this bloons game right now, but i wanted to pass on another great time-wasting website that i just learned about, especially for those with strong religious convictions like mine...check it out

hope all is well back home...and peach, i miss thee!! we must be sure to visit our "home" for some beer and deepfry as soon as i get back next week!!

God damn. How do you make the land mine drop in level 47! BLOONS!!

the Legend said...

Dear arrrgh,

Well, it took me a few tries, but it's not too hard once you figure out the secret.

First, you need to blow up the pesky bomb-bloon. If you put your mouse cursor over the middle-area of the bomb-bloon, and shoot a dart a full power, it should take out the first row of 3 directly under the ice-bloon as well as the bomb-bloon. If the bomb-bloon is still there, it will destroy the mine-bloon before it gets to the bottom.

Now, shoot the ice bloon. It will make the remaining bottom two rows of bloons under it into frozen-bloons. Once this is done, all you have to do is aim at what is now the top left bloon right under you, and fire at almost full blast. It should bounce off it and arc right into the mine bloon.

arrrgh said...

Wow, now I can see why they call you 'The Legend'. You might think I would feel less satisfied, not figuring it out for myself. But you're wrong. I'm just happy to finally have passed that level designed by sobs.

asian cymbals said...

Dear Arrrgh,

You are mistaken. Though there are many reasons TheLegend is known as TheLegend, not the least of which is his videogame-playing ability (even though he kind of sucks at Wii Play), the original reason he was called TheLegend is because his penis is enormous. I don't know for a fact, having never seen it with my own eyes. But I heard a rumour once, and I asked him about it, and he confirmed that it is indeed enormous.

Also, congratulations on passing that level, it sounded like a bitch.
