Back in the 90s, I used to play an online game called "Acrophobia". I LOVED it ... the more creative and quick you are, the better! Well, like most web-based games in the 90s, it lost it's funding and disappeared. Well, I've found another one similar to it!! It's called Acrobabble. Go on over and check it out. Here's how it works: players are presented with an acronym between 3 and 7 letters long and their task is to concoct the funniest, whackiest, witiest acronym expansion in the alloted time. Players then get to vote on the best entry and points are awarded based on the entries. ... I played a while last night and this morning. Warning: the un-rated rooms means "anything goes" ... some people have very dirty minds! If you're easily offended, pick one of the "clean" rooms.

I'm "marcymcgee" there, if anyone wants to find me.


  1. Sounds like an interesting game... Not sure how well my screen reader will cope with it though.

    Speaking of which...

    I don't mean to be a pain, but - while the music playing on your blog is lovely - it's extremely difficult for me to read blogs with music playing in the background, because it interfeers with my screen reader and makes hearing what it's telling me is written on said blog quite difficult.

    If you want to keep the music then that's fine. But - and I mean no offense by this - if you do I will no longer be visiting. Like I said, I mean no offense by it, it's just that - as I said - hearing the screen reader over the music is difficult, and it gives me a headache. So I tend to avoid blogs with background music.

    But - as I also said - if you want to keep the music then that's entirely up to you. It's your blog and you can have what you want on it.

  2. Oh... And I can't do word verification either. The disabled access button (or whatever they call it) never works right and calling hubby away from what he's doing every five minutes to read the letters for me is annoying for both of us.

    Just thought I'd add that in case you got tempted to have word verification on your blog. So you'd know before you decided.
