puzzles

I keep getting sucked in by jigsaw puzzles. I don't have floorspace for them so I have an app and it's totally engrossing. I'll open it intending to play for a few minutes and then suddenly I look up and my phone is overheating and running out of battery (lighting up the screen costs a lot of energy) and also way too much time has just passed. It's just so soothing. And kind of addicting. I'm very good at matching colours - this green is not quite as green as that green - and also, you know, it's nice to have a game where you can just brute-force your way through if you're stuck. Which you are if you assemble a puzzle with clear blue skies.

They're horridly addicting and timewasting.... but I DO love it when you've got the right piece and it goes 'CLICK' into place!!! And then you find the bit you're missing is under the big block you've got in that far corner...hahah.

Yes, to all those things! So satisfying to get the pieces to lock in.

Oh god yes searching for the right piece--why can't I find it--oh it fell down/got stuck under something else/etc.

Whoa, there's an app for jigsaw puzzles? I didn't know that, though it makes sense. Glad they're helping you while away time, even if it tends to become too much time. Messing around with colors are definitely fun. :)

Yeah, there are several, I think, in just the Google Play store! I'm pretty happy with the one I have so I didn't go try the others. There are also online ones you can play with your computer, but I think I'd have given myself a bad case of RSI if I tried. Too much clicking.

Too much time, alas >.<
