The best job in the world?

Sometimes I wonder if I have the best job in the world. OK, I wish I could play for the NHL, but until that dream comes true, I'm sticking with my day job (no posts or replies about the music stuff I did in my previous post, more evidence I should stick with my day job).

The reason I write this is that I'm about to play Snood for the first time because I'm giving it as the final assignment in CS 101 . How many people (besides players in the NHL) get to play a game for a living, huh?

For some reason, the computer-game gene skipped me completely. Most computer games don't require skill or human interaction, two ingredients I like in a game. Raquetball for example has both of those, so I like to play that.

But I'm looking forward to my evening of Snood. Let the games begin.


Beware! One evening of Snood is never enough...

Jim is right about that. For example, my junior year has been described as my "Snood year."

I've managed to steer clear of Snood, but I lay the blame for all of the badness of Spring '01 squarely at the feet of Bust-A-Move for Playstation. (Snood is a PC rehash of Bust-A-Move, complete with worse graphics than the original).

that reminds me: when potential employers ask me what the hell happened to my grades first semester junior year, Im going to need a better excuse than snood.

snood can claim the first semester of michael's junior year, but i'm taking credit for the second.

i've played enough snood that each game is worth far less than a penny. 1186, to be precise. i don't even play for fun anymore. it's purely an addiction that i can't rid myself of.
