Detective Whoorl

Well, you would think I would be a posting fool due to my maternity leave and wicked organizational skills.

Sorry, Charlies. I have a new love in my life, and it’s called…wait, what’s it called…oh yeah…Mystery Case Files: Huntsville.

I love you Mystery Case Files: Huntsville. No more maternity leave boredom for me because I am solving crimes, yo. I came upon this earthly delight when I was playing The World Series of Pop Culture on VH1’s gaming website. Which, by the way, SERIOUSLY. I know the answer to every question on that show. I need to be on that show.

I could win that damn show hands-down, and I can’t believe Molly was this close to strutting her stuff in front of the cameras. MOLLY! WHY MUST WE LIVE ON OPPOSITE COASTS? WHY COULDN’T I BE ON YOUR TEAM? WE WOULD HAVE RULED THE POPOSPHERE!

Anyhoo, just gaming on the VH1 website last night (yeah, I’m now officially a “gamer” according to my husband…who most definitely HATES my involvement with Mystery Case Files: Huntsville), and I noticed this game. It’s like a timed Where’s Waldo and jigsaw puzzle combined. I am so in love- I even bought the full version for $19.99.

Check this out, I can’t really go into details because I am a full-on investigator and Huntsville needs me STAT, but this is the deal. You have to find certain items in a seriously-crowded room full of shit.

Here’s what a room looks like…


And another…


And basically, it’s keeping my Whoorlito impatience and boredom at bay. Not to mention, I’m a sleuth*, people. Do you know what that means? Yeah, well I don’t either. But I do know that there are 7 rankings below a sleuth. So um, basically, I’m an astonishing genius. I’m on FUEGO!

Who needs BlogHer when I’ve got the town of Huntsville counting on me?

Oh, so you don’t care so much about Huntsville? You’re just here for Whoorlito? Well, my next Whoorlito appointment is tomorrow morning. Updates will follow IF I can pull myself away from my detective duties. Peace.

*I’ve now been promoted to Shadow Master. How intriguing am I?

    OK, OK. I’m as excited to hear about the baby as the next reader, but … THAT GAME LOOKS HELLA FUN!


    Because I need to spend more time on the computer.

    I’ll let the gals at BlogHer know you’re seriously busy right now, solving crimes and all and having a baby etc. Good luck with the appointment tomorrow!

    I think I have downloaded every free trial version of every game on Yahoo games. I ended up buying the Zuma game because playing the web version quit being challenging when I could beat all 4 stages in less than 15 minutes.

    The full version is getting pretty tame, too, so I’ll have to find something new and Mystery Case Files looks promising.

    Unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending on how we look at it) the two weeks pre-baby I had thought I would have changed into three days. My last day of work is TODAY and this baby will make his or her debut on Monday. So all those things I thought I would do (crib delivered, baby gear unpacked) over those two weeks has become Friday’s Project.

    Cherish your boredom!!

    Addicted Investigator here.

    Last night the man, the girlies (4 and 5 years old) and I all gathered around the laptop and searched for a couple of hours. I don’t think we’ll be getting any work done around here for a while.

    Good luck with Whoorlito!

    *GASP!* I love you for opening the door and bringing this in my life. MUST. CHECK OUT. NOW. I’ll never leave the computer.

    And hey. What *up*, crimestopper? You smoke Nancy D. That bitch. You’re SO MUCH hotter and I don’t even care that she has that little convertible. She thinks she’s SO hot and she is so NOT.

    Er. Yeah, hi.

    Oooh, that looks like fun! Now that I don’t have cable, I need something else that will keep me from getting any physical activity.

    Can you come over to my house and find my keys in a seriously-crowded room full of shit?

    OK- delurking to say that I also am TOTALLY ADDICTED to that game. Sigh- I thought I was the only investigator needed in Huntsville, but I see that I was wrong.

    So I spent an hour last night trying to track down the Huntsville criminal, until my free trial ended and my entire world crumbled around me. THANKS.

    Wow, this looks like fun. Kinda like I Spy, but for big people. Okay, big geeky people, like me.
    Thanks for sharing Whoorl.

    Yay for boredom. You’ll never be bored again once Whoorlito arrives. You’ll look back fondly on these bored days. It’s the end of the world as you know it.

    I will have to try that one out, it looks like my kind of game.

    I hope your appointment is going well and we will soon be meeting Whoorlito!!
