Default A Stress-Reliever

This is not a joke, but I found it relaxing.

The object of the game is to move the red block around without getting hit by the blue blocks or touching the black walls.

Give it a try but be careful: it is addictive!!

Apparently I am not that good at it either... 4 seconds is my current record.

Obviously I am going to have to practice more!!

Julie, Geena,

It will not be long before you catch on! The blocks, unlike real life, move in an unchanging pattern. After awhile it seemed to me that the blocks and I were "dancing." ...should I go take my medication now?

another time waster -- the idea is to "box in" the cat (herding cats anyone?)

I'm finding them more stressful as the cat keeps escaping. Only been able to catch it once so far.

It is beatable. The cat does respond to your choices, so learning truly how to herd it helps. Mind you, I only win probably 1:10 times.

Well, I'm up to 9 seconds on Escapa. Still haven't boxed in that damn cat, though.

Thanks guys! I'm only supposed to be packing!!

Oh my goodness... I just got 17.03 seconds. I think I'll end on a good note.
