Facebook. Yes, I joined, collected friends, posted pictures, and currently let people know how boring my life really is. I'm pretty good about ignoring requests and refusing to poke, but you know what has me on Facebook every day? Hatchlings.
Apparently, one of the applications is all about collecting eggs, Easter eggs. They come in different colors and have special edition eggs that fit with special occasions or holidays. These eggs have since morphed into hatching eggs. Little creatures appear after about a half an hour and need to be fed. A little meter line below the creature tells you if they are happy (well fed). If they aren't taken care of they run away. Which isn't such a bad thing when you collect 128 (The limit for the number of hatchlings you can keep at one time) because it means you'd need to find 128 eggs or more every day.
Of course I'm addicted. I collect and feed my hatchlings hoping I will get a special edition egg or find an egg to incubate (how you get a hatchling) that I don't already have. I collect eggs by going to profiles of those with the same Hatchling application. They have "baskets" which are just patches of grass. The person who got me hooked on Hatchlings has a ton of people signed up. So she just visits all their profiles and collects. I have 4. I've been able to keep my little creatures fed by going to a site with links to baskets. They're like little Tamagotchis. I loved my Tamagotchi.
I'm trying to get this cute purple armadillo now...
