Hooked on Yoville

I blame my daughter for this latest Internet addiction: YoVille, an application on Facebook.

When you start out as a YoVille resident, you get to create a little "you" to live in the apartment you are given. You can actually walk around the town and talk to people. Yes, it's a kid thing; and I'm hooked. By the way, if you think that doesn't look much like me, there's no way to put wrinkles and gray hair on me. So that's a younger version.

In YoVille you can go to work at the Widget Factory every six hours and draw your pay. You can then spend your earnings on furniture for your home, clothing, coffee, booze, food, or even a house.

I'm not good at saving large amounts of money, even pretend money. But I did finally save enough to buy myself a junkie trailer house (sound familiar?).

I actually paid YoVille bucks for that pickup on jacks and that dilapidated doghouse. Oh, and the junk fence.

I can rearrange furniture in my rooms any time I want. I can visit my daughter's apartment or trailer.

If you ever decide to move to YoVille, look me up.

Don't even get me started talking about myFarm. (I doubt these links will work if you don't have the applications on Facebook yourself.)

Somebody just shoot me.

Anytime I see the word addiction I have to run lickedy split in the other direction since I know I could be hooked on yet another time consuming online activity. I did check it out and it did look like fun so and had to flip a coin.....do I play poker or make a little life on facebook. Poker won today.

Isn't it fun to be an older kid? I'll not get started on that 'cause I'm already a person on Club Pogo and I look much younger there too with my red hat and no wrinkles.

I think I will steer clear of this one.... I bought one of the webkinz for my grandson and one for me... i think I've spent way more time with mine than he has LOL... I mean it goes to school, cooks, has a garden; all of which take me time each day ;p

I just got started on Yoville; I don't spend too much time on there yet. I'm kind of weighing the consequences because I'm afraid it might turn into a major time drain if I get into it too much.

Hope to run into you in Yoville sometime soon!

Oh no! This is really cute. If I "move" there, I'll look you up.

Thanks Donna for mentioning this. I am now on there, lol.

How does one look another person up on YoVille?

I'm doing myfarm and Yoville too. Also a few others I won't mention lest you end up being stuck with them too. :)
