App of the Month

Of all my "talents", drawing is not one of them.

Oh, I've tried to play Draw Something, both with 710 and Rebecca, and I can guess their drawings, but man, my pictures suck.

Granted, it is not easy to draw on an iPhone and I think both Becky and 710 use their iPads to play, so their space is a little bigger - still.......I'm like a kindergartner with finger paints.......but a kindergartner who was a Thalidomide baby.

It's not to say that the app isn't a little fun, but I'm a little competitive and want to win, but honestly, it hasn't been about keeping score, it becomes just about not completely embarrassing myself.

You this:

Yes, it's a wagon.  My other choices to draw something was "lollipop" or "turbo".  I don't know how one draws "turbo".

The worst thing about Draw Something?  You can erase and start your drawing over, but when your opponent gets your drawing, they will see each and every iteration of it, so there is no way to save face on how badly your other renditions came out.

For the record - this wagon was my first and only attempt.  I decided to do as few takes as possible to keep down the humiliation factor.

As iPhone game apps goes, this is ok, but not as addictive as Words with Friends, Bejeweled or even Fuzzle.

Oh - and it's free. At least the version I have.

If it's any consolation, I'm worse at Draw Something than I am at Words with Friends (which as you well know is saying something). Considering I'm an artist by trade, I'm usually ashamed at how my teeny-tiny pictures turn out....
