my life is dominated by technology. i spend 9 hours a day writing software for a living, and when i'm not doing that, i'm almost always on my phone. on my first phone, back in 2004, mobile internet was a rather sucky experience, and there wasn't much you could do with it other than check email and (extremely painfully) chat on yahoo messenger. which is why i would play games on my phone instead. my favourite game back then was "sims 2" and "worms world party".
as the years went by, i moved to blogging from my phone, facebook mobile, and finally the ultimate mobile addiction: twitter.
5 years later, things have come full circle, and how.
my friends complain i'm not on twitter any more (which isn't true, btw - i'm now only down to replying to @mentions, and the occasional tweet when i'm walking to the water cooler at work, or something like that).
and the reason is, i've started playing games on my phone again.
and guess which games: worms world party (yes, the exact same game from 7 years ago, now released for android), and sims freePlay.
anyway, that's it for now. i need to prepare for a bake sale by teaching my sims how to bake. yesh.
ps: and my mom thinks i'm addicted to facebook. lol.
