Thanks Arianna. Glad to hear you guys figured it out. While I've got you on the line — do you still use your cellphone in the bathroom? Not judging; I like to play word games while using the toilet.

No response at press time. For the record my top three are Word Abacus, Scramble, and Bookworm. [Image via AP]
