Thunderbolt  (noun)

Definition: A single discharge of lightning with the accompanying thunder; An imaginary elongated mass cast as a missle to earth in the lightning flash; A flash of lightning conceived as a bolt or dart hurled from the heavens; A person or thing that resembles lightning in suddenness, effectiveness, or destructive power; One that acts with sudden and destructive fury; Vehement threat or censure; A startling, forceful action.

Also: The name of my brand new phone! (HTC ThunderBolt) For the first time in my whole life, I actually have something that may be considered the most advanced, modern, up-to-date, piece of techno-gear out there. Until next week. (With the fastest speeds on the best network…4G LTE with Verizon Wireless–and no, they do not pay me.) Anytimewastingtechnology…

This phone is the OTHER thing that prevents me from studying. (uh huh–excuses) Takes a lot of time to learn a whole new way of doing things especially when it’s just so damn cool. Easily distracted. What’s worse…or better I guess, is I can actually use my phone to study now when I’m not at home! Which also means…I can played Bejeweled from it too. Technology is awesome.

That was a fast, violent storm! Ripped right through here, shaking the trees and trying to knock out our electricity. TV was down for a while, but the power just flickered off, silently waited, then hummed right back on! Scary!! How would I ever have been able to continue to play the game that is sucking away every minute of my free time?!?

I HAVE NO free time! If I am not studying for the giant test I am about to take then I should be doing house things. Laundry or whatever. Or even posting here. Or going out of the house and breathing fresh air. Anything but wasting minute after minute criss-crossing and swapping gems for absolutely NOTHING! Nothing real anyway. No one is dropping off money checks or free meals or anything. And at the end of the week, all my hard work, building up those high scores, is just washed away! Wiped clean as if I never played the game at all. I tell myself that my brain is just processing all the study information. You know, like when you dream at night, you are incorporating and integrating all the days events for future reference. To be smarter. What a huge load of donkey poo!

Bejeweled is Evil. And I need an intervention.
