My Snood Kind of Life

Sometime over the summer, I posted about a ridiculous streak of Snood wins, somehwere in the order of 18 games (shit its hard to find old posts the way I name them...). Now, I've always known that I was the best damned Snood player (at least when it comes to "Evil" win percentage) that ever graced this blue (/green) Earth, and certainly 18 consecutive wins gives that credence, but today I can be sure. I currently have going (that's right, its not over yet) a win streak of 27 games, up from 22 games about a week ago. I've also won 51 of the last 52 games I've played. (snap snap).

That isn't a bending of statistics or anything, it's not a lucky fluke of recording keeping, its not in any way fake. I am just that fucking awesome. Anyone who watches me play, or sees ridiuclously impressive numbers like that will know exactly how good I am: Fucking Awesome. And they'll be right, I am that good.

This rant isn't just to rub in how much better I am at Snood than you are, or an excuse to say nice things about myself. It's an example, a foil if you will, for the rest of my life. Snood, as it turns out, in terms of my accomplishments versus people's perceptions of them, the only honest thing I have. Everyone seems to think I'm much better than I actualy am, be it my techer or coaches or parents or the Amherst admissions office. People seem to think things are going much better than they actualy are. Trust me, I'm not nearly as smooth or in control of real life as I am on a Snood board.

I would usually take this time to explain how years of honed snood skills are usually inversly proportional to an actual life, but i'm the one writing papers on a saturday night here...

What if you took the monthly amount of time you devote to Snood, and instead devote it to improving the life that you ceaselessly complain about?

You totally made me laugh, out loud I should add, with the "snap snap."

I hope that everything starts to get as good as Snood for you, lol.
