Kidney Stones Can Suck It!

My kidneys hate me.  I know this for a fact.  When I was sixteen years old, my right kidney decided to produce a lovely little stone.  This stone was then forced through my ureter and into my bladder.  For a sixteen year old, this is both painful and terrifying.  I woke up to a new kind of pain and I thought I was dying.  My parents were sure my appendix was bursting, so they rushed me out the door for a trip to the hospital.  Unfortunately, we were up at our family's cabin and the hospital was thirty-five minutes away.

Plants Vs. Zombies DSiWare Review

This review was originally written for DigitalSomething.com, but since that site is gone after seven years and I just downloaded the DsiWare title, I figured I would repost it on my new blog.

If one company was the master at casual games, PopCap would be it.  There are two games in particular that really sank their teeth into me and still have yet to relinquish their grasp, and both of them are now available on the Nintendo DS.  My favorite one, Peggle, was released in 2009.  I had just escaped from the clutches of the other, but it has shambled back into my life (and onto my 3DS) and started attacking my brain.  Now I am struggling to free myself from the zombie masses once again, so I figured it would be a good time to review Plants Vs. Zombies.
