World of Goo

No, that is not a description of my life as of late. Although, now that I think about it, it really does describe everything about The Boss and those that come into contact with her. But I digress.

Yesterday on our MLK jr holiday we did pretty much nothing but hang out and play the Wii, or boardgames and the girls got in plenty of Webkinz time. A while ago we had downloaded "Tetris" for Wii, my all time fav game, but we hadn't really played it since we got it, cause really people we're busy here! So yesterday Mark and I had a tetris showdown, which was pretty fun. (I really don't get many don't do anything but hang out on the couch and play video games type days, you'll see why later.) So, after the tetris showdown, Mark downloads another game that was game of the year last year (so I hear). It is called "World of Goo." The object is to use all these little balls of goo to build scaffolding/trusses/bridges/etc. and get to a goal. And really, to tell the truth, it is pretty fun and a challenge to get it right.

So, fast forward to early this morning because I don't remember my dreams until the wee hours of the morning. (Some of you may already know where I am going with this, cause it's happened before.) Ok, it's the wee hours of the morning and instead of peacefully sleeping, I am dreaming of building things out of little balls of goo. And then it gets really weird because then I start dreaming about blogging about dreaming of building things out of little balls of goo! I really shouldn't be playing video games, it does really weird things to my head! So now that I have blogged about it, as per my dream, hopefully I'll have a nice dreamless sleep tonight. Pregnancy dreams are too crazy for me to deal with on a routine basis.


  1. Yep-I have dreams all the time which include scaffoldings. Sadly, it has to do with my agoraphobia. (Look it up Mark)

  2. I remember when you would dream about little Tetris blocks coming down and landing on peoples shoulders. You had to quite playing for a while! This game sounds fun.

  3. Kelly and I have Dr. Mario showdowns. It gets pretty addicting, but really fun!
