A MANSION, AN APARTMENT, A SHACK, OR A HOUSE?

Sometimes we just need to revisit our childhood.

Sometimes we just need to be silly.

Sometimes we just need to forget that we are thirty something and have responsibilities.

Sometimes we just need to have fun.

Today I did just that.

I was visiting her blog.

She shared how she found this game.

Do you remember playing the game MASH when you were a little girl?

Me too.

Now you can play it on your computer.

Go ahead.

Play.

You know you want to.

I did.

Take a look.

Here are my results.

I married Chad.
(I really did)

We moved to a mansion in the mountains.
(Ha. Not even close. Try a four bedroom ranch in eastern NC)

We had 7 children.
(no. 3.)

We drive a green BMW.
(only on occasion, otherwise... I drive a white Yukon XL)

I will spend my days as a doctor.
(not really. I only play one on this blog.)

What were YOUR results?

Did you live in a mansion, an apartment, a shack, or a house?

I want to go share this with Claire, but she has already taken over my computer, and my friends.

Do I really need to share my games too?

*I know what you are thinking.
I have way too much time on my hands.
You could not be more wrong.
It is called procrastination.
Ten loads of laundry are calling my name.

I so loved this game as a girl.
Thanks for bringing back the memories.

I'll have to give it a whirl later.

Ha, Ha! I am married to someone name Robert, living in a shack in Atlanta with 4 kids and we drive around in a pink jag as I support us as a writer. This is so funny. In reality, I am married to Mike with 3 kids living in a house in Dallas driving a green LR3 and am a stay at home mom. I am going to have to post this too. We really do have to much time on our hands! To bad we don't live closer.

I can remember playing this too... yes....I know all you young readers are probably amazed that we had this game in the 50s.... however, I have no idea what my answers were....they probably all came true... isn't the results of this game set in stone???

I married my prince charming,John (He may not look too regal or charming to you but hey, beauty is in the eye of the beholder)

We live in a palace (Not really but our home is our castle)

We are millionaires. (o.k. we don't have a lot of money but we really are rich in every other way)

We had five of the greatest kids in the world. (that part is true even though we have to wait to raise one of them)

Take care....Did Claire get her blot yet????....upps...just asking.

LOVE this game!

When I played as a child I ALWAYS hoped to marry Danny Atkinson... live in a mansion, at the beach, and drive a Jag... shhh... don't tell anyone! It will be our little secret, smile.

I will totally check out this game. Great games never die! Never!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Erin said...

Ok... I'm back. We have some friends over and we ALL just played. Too fun!

Tooooo funny! A couple of years ago, I was sitting around doing nothing and did MASH. The only difference was I had my husband for all three choices. :-)

What is up with my reader??

I saw this yesterday then when i clicked on it, it told me that the page didn't exist and now here you are.

I might have to fire reader.

Love this game, and I can't wait to try and play it soon. Now that the drama in this house is a little less hopefully today. :)

I got your gmail, and will contact you soon to set up a time. I think we are 3 hours apart?? Im on pacific time right now. Hence why I see blogs at such a weird time. :)

I have a copy of one of the kajillion times I played this with my girlfriend Tina in a scrapbook somewhere. If I remember correctly she ALWAYS got the guy she wanted the most. Cheater.

How fun to go back down memory lane with this! : )
