Whatever! [socs]

It irritates me when people post their Wordle scores because there is nothing interesting about seeing the colored squares. It would be fun to see the words people tried, but we can’t have that because SPOILERS.

I have never understood the freak-out about spoilers (of any kind). So what if you know? Maybe it’s my romance novel background ~ we know the story always ends with the couple together and the fun is in seeing how they overcome their obstacles. There’s no such thing as a romance novel or romcom spoiler. But I just saw people blocking each other on FB the other day because one of them “spoiled” a game of silly Wordle.

I no longer play Wordle or any variations because they have lost their shine from so many taking it all way too seriously. It’s a game, folks. I love games, but I like them to be played for enjoyment, not anxiously, nor for bragging rights. Every day I do the 5 Microsoft Solitaire challenges on my phone and play a game or two of Scrabble against the computer. Why? For fun!

Last weekend I took the Superb Owl a tiny bit more seriously because I bet five bucks on the Bengals. Spoiler: they lost. Had a great time with friends as I watched the game in my tiger shirt and munched on the crispy tiger butter squares I made. I have half a bag of Rice Krispies left and a random assortment of chips to melt in. Or maybe I’ll do something else with them, but it has to be soon because I keep eating the chocolate ones.

I bought myself gifts for Valentines Day: a pretty necklace and a Sprinkles cupcake. The cupcake was red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and a million sprinkles. It was utterly scrumptious.

I also bought myself a color block cardigan for finishing my taxes early. Go me! I already got $9 back from California… that’s two cupcakes. (Almost.)

I’m sad about Olympic ice skating. I knew it wasn’t 100% fair for all sorts of reasons, but the fact that one group is blatantly doping up minors and treating them abusively just turns my stomach. Skating was the one aspect of the Olympics I truly enjoyed, but I doubt I will ever watch it again.

I’m really tired tonight (I write my SOCS on Friday night and schedule it for Saturday morning). I had four long drives last weekend, which were physically exhausting, and I haven’t fully recovered. Also, midweek I thought I lost an important document and became horribly stressed over that, so I’m also emotionally wiped out. Spoiler: I didn’t lose it.

It’s a 3-day weekend and I just wanna chill and do nothing. I have a social event tomorrow night though. Maybe I’ll have more energy then. Whatever

PS: WP is telling me my “color combination” may be hard to read. It’s black text on a white background. Gah, are they up to some new weirdness? My scheduler wasn’t working earlier either. JUST LEAVE THINGS ALONE! Why must they constantly ruin our blogs, waaah…

  1. I personally love spoilers. I know people get upset about them but I say the more spoilers the merrier. i always read the last chapter of a book when I’m in the middle to see if the story has a satisfactory ending.

  2. I still play Wordle but I don’t talk about it. Why do we share? To compare our prowess against others? It is a challenge against myself. I also play Scrabble against the Computer robots! My family does not love words and word games like I do, so it is my little guilty pleasure.

  3. I played Wordle once and decided I had better things to do than spend time every morning trying to figure out one word. And I agree with you – the constant sharing on social media is annoying. I want my friends to share a funny meme or where they went on vacation. Please.

    • Exactly. I get sharing one, at the beginning when it’s new and exciting, but my FB feed is a stream of these stupid things. People post without comment as if it’s something so awesome no further chat is necessary 🙄

  5. OMG I am having the worst time with my reading this morning. My gf text and said she had got out of her driveway ok. For some reason I read it is get out of bed. Your black cardigan for finishing became black cardigan fishnets. LOL LOL LOL not sure they would be all the comfy. 🙂 Thank you so much for making me smile this morning. 🙂

  6. The sad thing is that blogger.com makes it very much easier to do things to the template like adjust background and text colors. I used to change mine around just to stave off boredom. I’m linking WordPress but the process of changing the look is tedious.
    Spoilers reminded me of the one time I went to an opera to see the Marriage of Figaro. I was probably the only person in the theater who did not know the story. I enjoyed it very much, all the surprises and plot thickenings, but I wouldn’t want to see it again. Otherwise, I have read several books more than once–the ultimate spoiler–and still enjoyed them.

    • It’s tempting to return to blogger, but here it’s so much easier to deal with the inevitable spam and trolls. My old blogs used to be overrun with that crap in comments and I had to delete them all one at a time 😞

  7. I play wordle with my son but like you I’d like to know the words he goes through to get the answer. I’m not interested in playing the game with anyone outside Australia as we are a day ahead of most people and where’s the fun in knowing the answer ahead of your time.

  8. I read your posts on my iPhone and your color combo looks fine to me.

  9. I enjoy Wordle but I don’t take it seriously because it’s definitely just a game. I do post my outcome though. A few of us chat about it and move on. I like everyone’s daily post if they share their outcome. Much to the ire of a former friend who has blocked me. Not for spoiling the game mind you but for daring to share my outcome. Whatever … how fitting that was the prompt yesterday.

  11. After seeing Wordle almost everywhere, I did what I had to do.
    Nothing!

    • Hah! I just “muted” it on twitter, which should help there. Since so many of my favorite people do it on FB, I am FORCED to see their scores, ugh. Just makes me go on FB less…
