I am jonesing for a spades partner

Living in the woods is great, but there's no one to play cards with!

I quit smoking last week, but what I'm really jones-ing for is a good game of spades. Especially one with really intelligent partners.

My Dad and I play cribbage. It's not my favorite, but it is a decent game. I've beat him four games in a row now.

I really miss my games with Jon, Dee, and Rick on the back porch in Florida summer. More than any other aspect of our room-mate-ish-ness (yes, it is a word!) I miss that.

I tried playing the online variety of spades, as an expert player but everyone else in the game was either a bad player pretending to know how to play spades, or someone who quits the second anything bad happens (like a few measly bags). And it's excrutiatingly slow. Internet spades is still nothing like the real deal.
