A Crush

I don't know if you have seen the stupid 'likes' and 'updates' on Facebook from those weird friends regarding Candy Crush, but avoid this game at all costs. It will take precious time and even money (if you are one of those poor souls who is desperate for extra lives).

Candy Crush is an addicting Bejeweled- type iPhone game that sucks time away and frustrates the hell out of you, specifically me. At approximately noon on Friday, July 12 I was intrigued by a friend's status update expressing his utmost anger at this seemingly irrelevant game. I then proceeded to download said game and have been consumed ever since.

The most antagonizing part is running out of the given 5 lives and having to wait 20+ minutes for your next one. I mean, come on?! I have never considered buying anything for a app game, but one could go crazy waiting for that stupid timer. I am currently writing this post just to pass the time. Sigh.

So, this is not an advertisement for Candy Crush. Instead, this is a warning. Don't do it. You will get no reward but only stress-pimples in return.
