Workaholic Intervention (Games 3.23.7)...

Work is too important in our culture. For too long we have worshiped workaholism and put way too much emphasis on work ethic. So to help people break free of the bonds of overexertion I've instituted two new weekly features into the blog as simple online time-wasters. Every Monday, I will post a video, and every Friday a game. Something to keep you less productive at work or home, you know, just so you don't work so hard. It's for your own good.

Each Friday I will leave us with an easy online game to waste a few minutes with. I would love to see people play for 10 minutes or so and then post in the comments what level or score they were able to get. Another simple game this week. This ones all about avoiding elimination, sort of a mouse version of tag combined with dodge ball. OK, that's a horrible explanation, just play the game. You deserve the break.


High Scores? My record is 175.

Comments? Questions? Blue Circle + Blue Square = Red Circle? All feedback welcome below :)


  1. My high score was 130! Just what I needed after my science test!

  2. Is considered a workaholic intervention if I'm not working? I consider it more of a "mommy break". I had a 155, but I'm determined to keep going until I beat you. HOwever, I have a baby crying so I'll have to try again later.

  3. Nicely done Jean!

    And Aut...

    You might as well just give up the ghost on this one. I had one of those freak things happen on the game, where after I hit 150 the next 5 boxes appeared right by me. There will always be things you are better at than me. You know, like being a mom.

  4. First, I had a 170 this time and I wanted to cry. Second, you saying that I should be proud because I make a better mom than you is like me saying that you should be proud because you do a better job at peeing standing up. It wasn't a compliment, just fact.

  5. First a say this... another ball game? Thats besides the point. I see no proof that you got 175. That said I had 348.

    This game is fun to play... if you have a mouse. I don't. I shall try to play tomorrow with a mouse and see if I can get that pesky 350 mark. I will tape it too, so there will be proof! Take a screen shot big guy... Don't post your scores with out legit evidence. Just take a screen shot or something.

    Game gets a 6

    Now I must go watch Planet Earth. Probably the best show on tv.

  6. Well it is true that I am a master of verticle urination,.) so I understand how I would best you at that. To make you feel better Autumn, here are 5 things that you are better at than me.

    1) Rubbing you nose.
    2) Being ticklish.
    3) Living in Indiana (I really stunk at that one.)
    4) Wearing pink.
    5) Having Breasts

    Though I've almost got you on that last one. Keep up the good work sis :)

    Oh and Drew, I can't believe you beat me to mentioning Planet Earth on my own blog.
