My Brain is Melting...

While in the throes of a particularly gruesome bout of Lazy Writer's Syndrome, I decided to kick my brain into gear with my new favorite puzzle game.  No. It's not Sudoko, but something much better.



What the heck is Kakuro, you ask?  Well, friends, it's a highly addictive number puzzle that takes all the things you love about Sudoko, crosswords and math and jams them all together.  I like to tell people that if Sudoko got together with the NY Times Sunday crossword and had a love child that later got hooked on the crack rock...that would be Kakuro ;)

BUT..

I think I might have bitten off more than I could chew with my new Kakuro puzzle book.  One puzzle takes me almost all day, and by the time I finish it, my brain is a melted mess of goo.


*sigh*  I shall beat you yet, Kakuro *shakes fist and glares*

What about you fun folks?  Are you puzzle pirates like me?  If not, how do you relax your brain?
