  • How You Tube helped me clear my desk


    One of my 2007 holiday gifts was a Tetris Cube.It’s basically a complicated puzzle: a bunch of different sized blocks that you dump out and then have to fit back together into a cube.

    It seemed like a good idea at the time – I love the original Tetris and still play it on my Gameboy. (I know, some of you are gasping in horror and some of you are wondering what Tetris is, but I know some of you must understand. 😉 )

    The Tetris Cube completely defeated me, though. I would come close, and have just one or two pieces sticking out, but I could never quite solve it. The pieces sat on my desk for over a year, taunting me.

    Finally, I gave up. I cheated. And I found this fabulous video that showed me exactly how to solve the puzzle. Which is now tucked away in the closet!

    2. I’m right there with you as a Tetris fan. My husband still has his old game boy with the tetris game he had as a child and I was thrilled to come across it in a box of his old things. 🙂
