The Angry Birds

You always think it can't happen to you. Addiction is something that happens to other people, other families.

Let me first talk about anger, because it's an emotion we commonly address in psychotherapy. Anger is a normal human emotion, but it's gotten a bad rap, and the inappropriate expression of anger can make life very difficult. When anger is recognized and used wisely, it can help us to solve problems, to stand up for what we believe in, and to change the world. It's never a terribly comfortable emotion, and often people strive to decrease their comfort by discharging anger.

So tonight I downloaded the Angry Birds app to my iTouch. Oh, I'm not so sure about this. I've catapulting these little animated critters at piggys in pens all night. I spent over an hour on level twelve. I can't stop. I posted on my Facebook about it, and an old high school friend--who's now a physicist at Stanford-- told me not to do it..."It's like crack." It's late and I want to go to bed. But what about the piggys in the stone pens on Level 15? Doesn't some angry bird need to smash them? If you know any shortcuts, please do share. Not sure I'll ever blog again....

angry women are hot. (oh good lord, i've sunk to puns. i promised myself i would never, ever do this. i blame bad influences at home.)

there's no shortcut. just a lifetime of vigilance interspersed with a few exciting relapses.

just remember--s/he who dies with the most facebook friends wins.

Use the MIGHTY EAGLE, it is the cure to Angry Birds, the CURE to life! It is the lifestyle of the clever and strong. You shall be gifted with the skill and knowledge of flinging the magic of the Eagle. Good luck fellow Angry Birders. Vitaliy B is a professional at this game, I go to him for consultation.
