the good | lifestyle

"Every man has a dream... 
to live free, to live happy, to live good."

You know me. Always trying something new. Ok... to spice up my blog a little, I decided to start a new section called "the good | lifestyle". I will discus about things that makes my lifestyle, well, good! It can range from fashion, technology, philosophy to anything, based off my personality! It can be something I already have or used in my life or something I always dreamed about. It is a good way to get to know myself more, and some of the things you may take for your own "good" lifestyle. 

Don't we all want to live "the good life?"

Already then, here we go...

:: play games
2 get a good man ::
My friends and I were talking last night while playing a game, and I had this idea. What would be the best way to get to know a man? Play a board game with him! Just think about it. You get to find out:

1) How well we can interact with you and friends
2) How well is his Intelligence and can he follow directions
3) See if he is competitive or a sore loser
4) If he is a good cheater or a bad cheater
5) If he can enjoy having fun!

These are some games I own or played that would be great:

"Get a Good Man" 

Play cards from your hand by matching color, number, or word with the top card of the discard pile. When you have one card left, yell UNO! Includes 108 cards and instructions.

How many words can you make in 3 minutes? Take the Boggle challenge! This classic head-to-head word-search game spells fast family fun for all ages! Turn over the 3-minute timer and start hunting: How many words can you make by joining letters up, down, sideways and diagonally? When time's up, count up your words and your points...then play again!

How do you get your team to say "diamond" if you can't say "baseball, ring, carats, jewel or engagement?" You might say, "These are a girl's best friend...The World Series is played here...Some are found in the rough..."Give suggestive sentences, funny phrases or even one-word hints as clues. But don't use any of the words on the card - that would be Taboo! Each time your team shouts out the secret word, you get a point. It's unspeakably fun - take our word for it! Contents: 504 cards, card holder, buzzer, timer, scorepad and instructions.

Supercharge your next get-together with an infusion of Cranium fun. Take the best of original Cranium—sculpting, drawing, humming and fun facts–and add 6 new activities including Zooma (identify 3 objects shown close up) and Odd Couple (pick 2 things that don't belong on a list) to get the Cranium Turbo Edition. Perfect for parties, showers or other events, this edition comes with a bonus pack including 100 invitation cards in 5 themes (Cranium Party, Family Get-Together, Our Town, Bridal Shower and Baby Shower) plus 1,000 new activity cards, and an electronic timer with music and lights. For 4 or more players, teens and adults. Imported.

Im am so over the game playing. People I strongly advise you not to play TABOO... especially if you are a sore ass loser. Cuz nine outta ten your partner always like to win an you will feel like shit if you lose. Take it from somebody who knows first hand lol

I like the blog.

I like the ever classic "Fishbowl". In the fishbowl are 100 general questions. You each take turns pulling a question and answering it. I never get more than 20 questions total. By then we are having a great conversation on our own.

When I'm not working one of my three jobs I would love to play a game with you Shawn...lol

The only game I don't like to play is dominoes. I played it the other day and won but I get as much enjoyment out of dominoes as I do bowling.

I like to play cards though. I play poker, spades, bid whist, casino...who don't know how to play casino these days?

No Seven Deadly Sins mentioned? Hell, what better way to get to know a man than to see how adventurous (sexual or otherwise) he is? Get it together Shawn lol

I think I'd use Boggle. I want to see how easily frustrated he gets as well as how adapt he is given limited resources.
