Addictive New Game on Orisinal

One of my favorite games sites is orisinal.com. The games are truly original. Each one is a unique concept.

I'm definitely a videogame addict, but rarely do I get to feed my addiction with something new. First it was Defender, with a steady stream of copycats. Then came Super Mario Brothers, then countless hundreds of knockoffs. I don't even know which game was the first first-person shooter, but now the top 10 always seems to have five or six of them. I think EverQuest gets the credit as the first true massively multiplayer online role-playing game. My only every couple of years and do we see something original. Heck, even Tetris has been knocked off about 4000 times.


But this website, created by one individual, has a huge number of miniature games that are original as they are addicting. Beyond that, the artistry is phenomenal and completely unique. The music is completely original, and for most of the games, is soothing rather than annoying. And finally, they are family-friendly. With two children who are just starting their adventures in video games, I can appreciate games that don't feature blood and gore. These games actually have extremely mild violence if any at all, and no death and destruction.

The newest game is called Winterbells. I won't say it's my favorite, but it's definitely fun, and absolutely adorable. Check them all out when you get a chance.

I was born in 1970. About a year later I was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy. I never walked. I got my first wheelchair at kindergarten age, and my first power wheelchair in sixth grade.
Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Friday Funnies: Aging Gracefully

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"
