Simplistic and Certain

I've recently gotten into Sudoku. I know, I know, I'm a little behind the times, but that's how I am. Anyway, I really like it. It's so...certain. It's the kind of thing where you can't have two right answers, only one number fits. I used to do word puzzles that were kind of like sudoku, where they give you the number of letters and you have to fit each word in so that all the words make other words. It was like a crossword puzzle but without all the clues. Anyway, I used to really like those. I'd buy books of them and sit and do them during rehearsal instead of doing my homework, or I'd do them on car trips.

Anyway, since I have a lot of free time at work, I've been doing sudoku on the google homepage. Keeps me busy. Simplicity and certainty. I guess that's what I like.

That's not what my life is like at all. It turns itself into a complicated and tangled mess because I don't really know how to keep things straight. And nothing I ever do is certain. I'm scared of almost everything. Kind of like Monk, but less neurotic. And not as good at solving mysteries with a side of comedy. And no murdered wife.

Anyway, that's me. That's who I am.
And that's ok.

I'm a fairly recent convert to sudoku too. Mainly cos of the brain trainer on the nintendo ds. I'm sure it means more about my personality too. But I have decided not to look too deep into that. . .
