Angry Birds are Here to Stay
Ok so I got my Droid X a couple months ago after my old phone “fell” in a glass of water. Don’t ask me I guess it shouldn’t have tried to wake me up with it’s whining alarm. That being besides the point, ever since I got my new phone I’ve been selectively downloading new apps whenever I’ve heard positive reviews about them. I was quite jealous of I-phones, for all of one second, when I heard about this crazy addictive game called “Angry Birds”. The last time I’ve really played video games must’ve been nintendo’s “Super Mario Bros 3″. I sat for hours trying to get past every stage and decimated the game in no time. Well I find myself doing it all again with “Angry Birds”. So pretty much everyone I know is already past the level I am (free version:android level 14-4), and I am becoming increasingly frustrated that I cannot get past this level. Anyways I want to warn you of the dangers of “Angry Birds”
I can’t believe how much my battery has been drained cause of this one game. I’m sure that maybe there are other factors that contribute to battery drain but 3 consecutive nights in a row my phone has died while I was playing “Angry Birds”. On top of that last Thursday when I was out at Blu Martini this super hot chick wanted to give me her number and I had to tell her my battery was dead cause of “Angry Birds”. Who the hell has a pen and paper anymore…no one, that’s who. Anyways I’ve resorted to carrying around my charger wherever I go so that I can finish this level of “Angry Birds”
I really can’t sleep at night anymore, I hear the theme song in my head and I see birds flying at me dropping eggs and exploding ice blocks everywhere. I wake up tossing and turning. Then when I come into work I pass out on the nearest couch while all the sales people look at me strangely. They must all think I drink too much or something, but it’s not the case….it’s the “Angry Birds”. The sleepless nights didn’t start for me until after the first level. I think I had it under control then, plus it was easy, I was whipping through the game. Not now, I think I’ll have to chew some valerian root or something.
I’m not at this level yet, but I hope my friends will intervene if I start dressing up like this
Needless to say I’m not sure how many wasted hours I’ve spent on this game, but at least I’m not watching tv…right? TWO-MILLION downloads for android systems alone and counting….
