Snowplow Game

Friday, May 4th, 2007

I finally gave up playing the Plastic Balls game, because I quickly got stuck on this game. You drive a snowplow through the streets, trying to pick up as many tokens as you can to clear the board in the shortest amount of time.

Plastic Balls

Friday, April 27th, 2007

Plastic Balls

Beware! This game is my current addiction. I love these types of games. You know, the ones where you have to bank a ball off a paddle and break blocks and then catch things with the paddle while still keeping your ball in play. It’s so exciting!

Abandoned

I have always had a strong connection to abandoned buildings. They make my imagination click into overdrive. I wonder how they’ve come to be abandoned, who lived, worked, laughed, loved, cried and even died there. If you ask me, buildings have a story all their own to tell.
