Do you play Farmville / Cafe World?

I've never been on Facebook this much before, and it's all due to the Facebook games! For the longest time, I didn't log into Facebook, then I started hearing people talk about Farmville this, Farmville that. So, being curious, I added it and started playing.

At first, it didn't seem that interesting. You plant your crops, wait a few hours, then harvest them. But then...I started to get hooked. I unlocked more crops, expanded my farm, and now I'm playing it daily! The funny thing is that in Farmville, you need a certain number of neighbors before you can buy a bigger plot of land. So, I asked Eel to be my neighbor, it didn't matter if she played or not, all I needed was one more neighbor, and she agreed. Now, it seems like she's playing it quite frequently as well. :D

The other game I'm playing on Facebook is by the same company that developed Farmville, and this game's called Cafe World. You have stoves where you cook your food, and you can hire waiters to help serve your food. Every level that you gain, you either unlock a new type of food, or new stoves you can purchase. Is this what it feels like to be a restaurant manager? Haha..

For my HAED, I got fedup of the one stitches, so I moved on to the quarter page at the end of my first row, and I finished that. So, I took an overall picture of it before moving back to the annoying dress page. *sigh*
