Video games, puzzles and ear wiggling ~ something for everyone

Goofy Girl is all excited because she's been wanting a Wii and now finally was just able to order it. I think Wii is a video game. I'm feeling less than intelligent now.

I've never been into video games at all. Give me an electronic sudoku, or crossword or jigsaw puzzle, electronic or otherwise, and I'm in my element.

I have nothing against video games (well of course except for when it's alls that kids do all day) but they just don't appeal to my brain.

Why is that? Are certain brains wired differently?

Why do jigsaw puzzles appeal to some peoople and not others? There's definitely two camps involved where this is concerned, I believe.

Please take my survey and send your friends. I want to get some good scientific results recorded here.


Now Miss Cheeky is wondering what kind of hidden talents we have. I offered up that I can wiggle my ears. Big deal right? Maybe .... maybe not.

I estimate that only a smaller majority of people can do this. I'm thinking 30%. Please help a blogger girl out and respond to this survey. I am a woman of curiosity.

I can wiggle my ears. I can even do it one at a time.

Nope, can't wiggle my ears and I have no idea how to even try to do it!

You know I'm awful at video games, I prefer to sit back and watch them. But the wii was made for people like us in mind, so maybe you'd be really good at it! :) I'd invite you over to play but I think it would be a little bit of a trek for you!

Hello,

Found your link at Lisa's. I took your survey.

I enjoyed visiting with you.

Lol ! You make me work here. I hate puzzles I am not patient at all and even though I have quite big ears I can't waggle them. Unfortunately, sigh, I could entertain a whole party !
I see you don't participate at Wordless Wednesday, I think I give it up too. It has become a comment huntig for trafic. People don't even look at the pictures or read the text. One of the group has got the comment "cute dog, very nice picture" and it was her CAT !

I'm a gamer.. and enjoy a good video game that challenges me. I've been a gamer since i was 16... (that's back in the Commadore 64 days people)...

but i also enjoy a good book sometimes... oh and.. playing my guitar... oh and writing a book.. oh and singing on stage... oh and ..... I don't have enough time for everything ...

*sigh*

video games can be works of art you know. Plus, the Wii is exercise

OMG I thought a lot more of us could wiggle our ears than that! Now I feel totally special. Now I have this compulsion to tell my husband to find a 500 piece puzzle.

I believe being able to wiggle one's ears is a genetic trait. I know of a boy who can do it and his uncle can do it. I've only seen boys with this ability, too. I can't recall ever meeting a girl who could do it.

A yes and a no for me!

Puzzels, when younger yes, and now, no time. I'm blogging.

Ears: learned from my cats.

Have a wonderful weekend. Take care if it's icy wether you walk or drive
