burger island

I am embarrassed to admit that I was addicted to a computer game called Burger Island for about a week. It started as a free download for 60 minutes of play but after that, my son and I were hooked. We coughed up the $20 and bought the full download. Well, I coughed it up. He just encouraged/begged me to buy it.

I am stuck on the milkshake level (39) but have learned lots of things along the way. For instance, when your burger is burning, throw it in the trash can quickly! Also, when it's time to blend your shake, you need to grab the blender, not the whipped cream. And, if you want to add some pizazz to a burger, make it a Hawaiian burger. That's what we did for our friend Allyson, as we celebrated with her on the purchase of her first home!

Here's the recipe:

1. Take one cooked burger and put it on the bottom half of a nice roll.

2. Put a thin layer of mayo on the top part of the roll.

3. On top of the burger, place one large pineapple ring, then some barbecue sauce, then some lettuce.

4. Put it all together and there you have it....a Hawaiian burger!



  1. You. are. a. dork. :)

  2. lol.....yes, But have you played burger island?

  3. I agree with Amanda -- however I downloaded Zuma on my cell, and have beat it numerous times. And still love to play it. I blame it on my family. We are all addicted! lol

  4. Ok, this is truly pathetic, but at Tracy's prompting, I downloaded the trial version for my 8-year-old daughter last night and we're addicted. We've only got seventeen free minutes left, and we're having a hard time holding on to our twenty bucks. Thanks a lot Tracy. Now I'm a dork.

  5. Try Zuma... it is so simple that it is ridiculously addicting!

  6. Zuma is a great game, but I have to say....a lot of sin comes out while I play...and all I end up with is an achy hand...but...i agree it is fun and addicting...i still go back to it when M lets me!!!
