I Think I Can… I Think I Can…

Is This Freaky or What???

As everyone must know by now, I’ve been feeling under the weather for a few weeks.  I’m a man, so I need to whine constantly and remind people of how crappy I feel, in a vain attempt to generate a little sympathy from anyone who hasn’t blocked me out by now.  Yup, I get it.  But this is freaky!

I opened up one of my Words With Friends (Scrabble for the iPhone) games today, and was blown away by what I saw!  The letters that I have to use are at the bottom of the screen, and they’re totally random.  There’s no way to manually manipulate those letters. [edited: It was pointed out to me that you CAN manually move the letters around by simply dragging them with your finger… I guess I never tried to do that before.  Sorry…] You can shake the iPhone and the computer will “shuffle” them randomly, but there’s no way to manually move the letters around.  I didn’t shuffle the letters at all.  This is the way it looked as soon as I opened the game!

Now this isn’t the first time that there has been a word visible within the mix of letters, but this is by far the freakiest I’ve ever seen!

The picture was taken with another cellphone is is a little blurry, but you get the idea!

I haven’t been able to make a move in that game yet… it’s just too freaky, and I don’t want to ruin it!
