I recently found out that a relative of mine enjoys Soduku puzzles. I have to admit I am a recent addict. I started doing them because I was bored and my powerbook has a widget. But I spent most of my recent flight to Atlanta working on the in-flight magazine ones and i now use them to fill in spare time that would be occupied by reading or writing or wondering what passing women look like naked.

I’ve always loved logic puzzles. When I was a kid in the gifted program, we used to get a weekly work packet that had logic puzzles like quotefalls and some box thing whose named I can’t remember. I ate them up.
