True Confession: Words(less) With Friends

I’m a sucker for fun apps, especially when it seems like everybody in the world is talking about them. I overdosed on the Angry Birds Kool-Aid. I’ve Cut The Rope a few times. I’ve even been a Fruit Ninja, though I gave up on that one pretty quickly since it seemed…pointless.

In yesterday’s meme, I had to list three things that scare me and my answer was earwigs (I blame the Wrath of Kahn), ice (when you have a fear of being underwater, this seems natural) and chicken feet.
