Text Snippets from Crozzle Day 2. Cooking tips!!!

Chat with Rick and Eve whilst playing Word Crozzle.
Eve:How was your army reunion, did you do some lamp swinging?
Rick: Had a great social day…but kept it fairly tidy…good rugby result for Auz… but not for England, …pity
Eve: Good thought it would be great to meet all your buddies.No England messed it up big time… thats life…glad Auz did well…just going to cook the i(e)gg and bacon and tomato!
Rick: LoL enjoy… no luck for me..had cereal.
Eve: Oh well…boiled iggs for you I expect!…lol ..just read that, oh no not even boiled iggs and its the weekend.
Rick:1 hate it when the shell breaks into a thousand pieces to peel off.and the sheath stays on the white. Don’t know if those are under boiled or over
Eve: There are lots of theories …one is the fresher the egg the harder to peel. … and I think both alledgedly can cause eggs hard to peel… all the ideas are too faffy for me…lots of peeps say get out of fridge cover the egg to an inch above, with cold water and bring to the boil  …then turn off heat and allow the egg to cook in the boiled water..large egg 2 mins soft.. 10 for hard….I do that if J wants boiled egg and toast cause he likes soft…yuck! but if I want hard I just boil for 5 lol.
Something I read said, for perfect peelers crack the base enough to pierce the shell but not the membrane…hah thought likely to mess it up so never tried it! Imao Can just see the eggy kitchen..ummmm..no!.
Now have well and truly got the giggles,  an unusual discussion……thats just the sort of  conversation u had yesterday at your reunion (not). Picturing you discussing culinary extravaganza  I suspect.the perfect boiled igg was not on the agenda!xx
Rick: Hahaha…A little different to the chats yesterday, ..but thanks…now I know.xx

Introduction Converging Lives the Novel

Friendship#Sex#Intrigue# Strangers meet on line#Jigsaw of interactions#Lust#Jealousy

The novel Converging Lives involves the interactions between several main characters playing a word game on line, this game called Word Crozzle is a game played on a board, each takes a turn to play, sometimes people are on line at the same time and play a quick game but because players may be in different countries and different time zones they often play their round, in isolation from their game partners. There is a facility to play with friends or to start a random game with a player chosen by the computer. Thus people are playing multiple games at one time with different people.

There is a facility on the board to chat and many people converse, get to know each other share interests, parts of their lives and become acquaintances, friends or sometimes fall in love. People playing Crozzle may just want to play and not talk with their opponent. Some interactions can be of sexual nature, people looking for a safe way to flirt, have an affair or find the emotional or sexual intimacy missing in their lives. Often this route leads to infatuation and emotions run out of control. Then all the multitude of human emotions come into play lust, infatuation, greed, jealousy, deception as well caring, honesty, honour love and real friendship.

The characters whilst on the board or in other forms of internet communication communicate mainly by text to each other but as the book progresses also have real life conversations. To differentiate text speak from normal speech for the reader TEXT is always denoted ‘…….’ SPEECH by “……..” marks.The main characters live in various parts of the world including Perth Australia, London England, Stockholm Sweden, and Aberdeen Scotland.
Time zones are obviously an issue with Perth Australia being 8 hours ahead of London during British Summer time.

This is a work of fiction put together after research into on line relationships, and discussions with people about their actual stories. I am grateful to those people who have shared their stories and sparked the ideas for this book. So many stories, so many ideas I could only take a few of those ideas and develop them into this novel.

On line relationships are now taking up, a chunk of many people’s lives and so the stories the interactions and the pit falls are becoming more relevant in today’s society. On every form of social media there is a chance to interact with strangers, it brings the world closer brings rewarding new friendships but also the chance to interact with predators, users and sexual stalkers.
Meet some of the players interacting online, share their stories, learn from their mistakes, review your on line behaviour be aware of the need of boundaries.

A view of Cyberspace Relationships


We met on a word game in cyberspace
We got on well we bonded and chased
We talked and shared our lives our schemes
Hard to remember it is a fantasy, a dream
For we only know the other, from the information they have shared
They will have kept secrets though their soul seems to be bared
We see their lives from their point of view
Not a rounded version from others too
We found an oasis from lifes woes and cares
We are indulging in a cyber affair
We share great intimacy its exotic erotic
But its words and pictures its only symbolic
It revs up our hormones and gives us a thrill
Feels so real ,our needs to fulfill
It floats us away on an idealistic dream
When we mutually cum its so good we scream
We find so much in common it gives us a high
We see the nice bits not the grumps or the cry
We have to balance this wonderful time
To avoid these friendships would be a crime
But the real world comes first has to be the case
Fantasy is just that, it has a place
Enjoy the moments the tingle and the fun
If your emotions are entangled,it’s time to run
Understand the rules keep them in mind
Otherwise heart break will find you in time
