I have played over 2,000 games of FreeCell on my computer, this computer. I stop playing after only one or two games at a time. Years ago a coworker in SLO, an unusually beautiful woman who once did something called "tea modeling" or something like that, confessed to me that she would stay up late at night playing game after game, until the wee hours. Hundreds of games in a night.

I don' t have the addiction to FreeCell that I have with the sims, but I probably play FreeCell every day. Every day. Just one game, maybe, but every day.That adds up about right.

I sometimes think of this woman, M, who lives in the country club area of town with a husband who is some kind of ass who makes good money. Not good enough money, though. She also confessed to me a tendency toward clutter and disorganization in her large, expensive home. Because there is so much room in it, she is able to hide it, barely, this tendency. I went in there years ago and vaguely remember this but not the details.

Is there a relationship between addiction to games and a tendency toward clutter? I think someone should study this.

I used to play FreeCell and was even, for a while, hooked up with an online deal where you uploaded your stats for ranking... then I switched to Spider Solitaire. I usually go one or two rounds at a time but generally do that 3 or so times a day.

I have, in the past, had major clutter issues and also been a victim of OneMoreGame syndrone... you could be on to something.

I did study it. (yank) ;)

There is a direct relationship between game addiction and clutter.
It is more rewarding and much higher on the laziac factor scale to game than keep a tidy house.
Indeed.

Well, I'm relieved. I am so grateful to you, and I am sure that millions out there have benefitted from your extensive research.
