4 Out Of 5 Bejeweled Blitz Games Agree...

Yeah, I know. I told you I was going to ressurrect the Teaser Tuesday... Um, not so much. Next week, friends. Next week.

Instead, I give you...

Bejeweled Blitz Magic 8 Ball!

Ooooh, shiny.

This is courtesy of H.L. Dyer. She uses her score on Bejeweled Blitz as sort of a predicter. You know, whatever you'd ask a Magic 8 Ball, you can ask BB. Just pick a score and play!

Okay, so I'm not like the BB Goddess or anything, but I can usually get a score between 30 - 85 K, give or take a few thousand. Sometimes I get 6500. Whatever.

My question (yes or no only): Will I get good news this week?

So I picked the score of 50,000. If I got above 50K, the answer was yes. Below, no. Now, since I have quite a severe addiction to BB, I only gave myself 5 minutes. That's 5 games. Best 3 out of 5 you could say.


4 out of 5 Bejeweled Blitz games think I'm going to get good news this week! It could be anything, like the starting date for school has been postponed a month...or that my garage has mysteriously cleaned itself...or something.

Does anyone have a Magic 8 Ball they want to confirm this with? Thx.

Do any of you do stuff like this to pass the time? Or any other quirks you feel like sharing about yourself? Lay them on me, I'm ready.

So, does this mean I can actually count my time playing Bejeweled Blitz as productive, since I'm trying to determine an answer to a question???? Woo-hoo.

I am totally addicted to Bejeweled Blitz. I'll have to try the 'yes'/'no' thingy next time I play.


Abby said...

You crack me up! :D

One of my quirks? But there's so many. :) Well, if I'm having a bad hair day, or can't get my makeup quite right, I assume that I'm going to run into someone I haven't seen in a long time. It's never actually happened, but one day it will, and then my theory will be confirmed. ;)

Eric said...

I'm a Peggle person. Try that game, Elana. They even have a Peggle and Bejeweled addon for World Of Warcraft, which is awesome :)

WindyA said...

Hmmm, moment of deja vu ... ;)

Anyway, quirky things to predict the future? I ask my 4-year old what she thinks. She has been eerie-ly (sp?) accurate. But maybe I'll have to try the BB method.

We all know what would be a totally awesome good news, but I'd take the garage cleaning itself too!

Lazy Writer said...

I play solitaire on the computer and tell myself if I win the next game, I'll get good news. I've never really paid much attention to whether it works. You'll have to let us know if BB was right!

Lianne said...

Yay! An excuse to play more Bejeweled!

Michelle McLean said...

hmmm, I've never played Bejeweled...maybe I should try it :D

Lisa and Laura said...

I'm intrigued by the bejeweled blitzer of which you speak. It sounds like a time suck and you know I love a good time suck.

Rebecca Knight said...

Sometimes I still like folding those oragami "Cootie Catchers" and then amusing myself by writing hilarious fortunes inside them.

Yeah. I was an only child and learned to amuse myself loooong ago.

My husband is a very patient man.

Icy Roses said...

Haha. I don't even know what Bejeweled Blitz is. Maybe I should get on that.

Errr...I suppose the only weird thing I do is wish on every 11:11 time and wish on dandelions and wish on stars...I wish on everything it is humanly possible to wish on.

Ryan said...

Umm... Well its not really a method to tell the future, but when I meditate I take a bag that I made, hang it around my neck, and write down whatever is bothering me at the time to see if I can figure out something to help with it.

I've never heard of Bejeweled Blitz either. Is that one of the neopets games?

LOL Elana your too funny!

I myself am in love with PS3--Oblivion and the Elder Scrolls, my goodness I'll play all day and have my husband bring my food/drinks to me so I don't have to pause it!

I do however NEED a Nintendo DS due to the fact they have an old Super Nintendo game I LOVE LOVE LOVE for it! Chrono Trigger my friends, that's what made my love for gaming! =D

I do hope your news is great! You must tell us what it is!

L.T. Elliot said...

I play free cell or sometimes do like Sara and play the PS3. (I also love Chrono Trigger! Woo-hoo!) I don't have any future-predicting vices. I should get some!

ElanaJ said...

Scott, you can totally count your BB playing now. Just ask it a question.

Abby, makeup? What is this you speak of? LOL.

Eric - evil! Like I need another game. Peggle, you say...

Lisa and Laura, you can waste whole hours playing BB. Sometimes I don't even know how many hours. Srsly. Try it. Facebook it. Do it. BB, baby.

People! You don't know what Bejeweled Blitz is? It's only the greatest game EV-ER. It's on Facebook - totally free. And it's highly addictive. May cause snappish tendencies if someone interrupts you while you play. Eyesight may be blurry afterward. Seriously. You have to try it. It's a must. A MUST!

Jenn Johansson said...

LOL! I think I need to try out this Bejeweled Blitz. :)

My husband and I get Chinese food every Monday night and I religiously read and keep my fortunes from the fortune cookies. :) I even did a blog post about it at one point lol

I go in spurts. First it was (fluff) Friends. Then it was pull tabs and scratch and win. Then I took a break and came back for some Restaurant City. Oh and what the heck happened to Scrabulous!!!

And let's not even talk about Collapse/Text Twist/Diner Dash...those were some dark times I say...dark dark times :)

I totally love how you make them productive though. I should try that!

ali said...

ROFL Elana. I so don't have anything to say.

But I might by tomorrow, now that you introduced me to BB tonight :)
