Business as usual, food groups and games

- Apparently Mr C's had a business as usual day on Labor Day. And the days are getting shorter judging from this 6:55am shot taken the morning after.

- So many appointments and so much driving around that I never have time for lunch, so deciding that a Snickers bar and Diet Coke satisfies at least one of the food groups (two if you count chocolate.)

- Bonding with a client over a mutual love of video games. She is all into that Wii thing. Me - I just love to play Mahjong, Hearts and Zuma. How about you?

Do you remember when a Snickers Bar was called a Marathon? I've never understood the appeal of peanuts and chocolate together.

Would a chocolate orange count as one of your 5 portions of fruit a day?

Jannie Funster said...

I don't remember Marathon bars.

Well, nuts are protein, eh? That'll perhaps tide you over.

And did you know that in Canada Smarties are actually akin to M&Ms, and what we call Rockets in the U.S. are actually called Smarties in Canada? Yep!

Jannie Funster said...

Nope - I got that last part wrong, see even I'm confused...

What we call Smarties here in the U.S are called Rockets in Canada. Yes, that's it!

Yay, my day's complete now and it's only 9:03 a.m.

Raining, no running.

i used to love to play minesweeper and solitaire at work. :) that's about all the hand-eye coordination i have for video games

TALON said...

Chocolate is definitely a food group in my world...and I hear Joe on the orange chocolate - one of my favs.

The days are definitely shorter and it's depressing!

I don't play video games...I think I might get addicted (and I'm competitive so not a good combo) so I'm not taking any chances - lol!

I firmly believe that a Snickers is a food group all by itself, and that it is the secret source of all health, happiness, and joy!

Joe -

I have not heard of a Marathon. Maybe that's a UK thing? I like to go to the British shop and buy Cadbury's chocolate bars. They have selections on hand there that are not sold over here usually. Orange chocolate - I'll check that one out - definitely a fruit. :)

Jannie -

I did not know that. I do like Smarties. And most candy really. Sorry you didn't get your run...

Cathy -

I do not get Minesweeper - I need to have another look at that one.

Talon -

For some reason I like driving to work in the dark, but miss the late in the evening lightness in the sky.

Mama Z -

"Snickers - the secret source of all health, happiness, and joy!" The cat's out of the bag now! :)

When I was able to eat candy bars, my fave was a Mars bar, because I love almonds.

As for 'puter games, I now stick with free cell. My goal is now to play every single game and finish with a winning percentage of 99.

And Joe, I think that a chocolate orange will definitely count towards the fruit portions.

Lynn said...

G -

My sister Jo loves Free Cell, too. She showed me how to play it, but I'm not good at that one. I found a handheld Free Cell for her at Target. She keeps it in her bag for when she has to wait.

I'm fond of the old Nintendo days of Zelda, tetris, n Final Fantasy. Mario used to tire me out. Before that I prefered Atari Space invadeers n was a wiz at Asteriods, winning extra guys back in the day.
Haven't played Wii yet.
Freecell used to eat up tons of time. then I loaded Blungo from the Win'95 machine in here, n now my worm eats apples.

Lynn said...

Snaggle -

I will check out Blungo. I have a gameboy somewhere with Tetris - used to love that.
