To anyone who says that video games make kids fat and stupid, I only have one thing to a Wii!! A couple of nights ago I played wii boxing for the first time ever and the next day I was a little sore. It only got worse today. I didn't know why. Did not even dawn on me that the pain I was feeling was from a 15 min game that I played with hand held controllers...I think this beats DDR.

look what i got...

So, we are all familiar with the obligatory, "My parents went to Hawaii and I all got was this t-shirt" type souvenir gifts. Well, I have to say that my parents have taken it one step farther. Right before they took off for the east coast a couple weeks ago I had been talking to my mom about how I wanted some White Castle. Not really sure why, since I never really ate there much when I actually lived there, but it was one of those cravings I guess. How can you not like those little bitty burgers? They make me feel like a giant. Anyway, so I'm hanging out with my parents today for the first time since they have been back and my mom gets all excited about what she brought back for me. Turns out they decided to go to White Castle one day and thought it would be the best idea to bring me back a bunch of ketchup packets along with the cardboard holder that had once held their delicious meal. My parents really do love me.

kids say the darndest things

I know in my younger days that I've said a lot of things to embarress my parents. The other day I was in Target. A woman was looking at a dress. I noticed this woman because her little boy, let's say he was 4 or 5, was SO excited about the dress, which struck me as odd that a little boy would be so into a dress. Touching it, oohing and ahhing over it. I laughed to myself. Anyway, this made me think that this child might be the next Marc Jacobs or something. That's until he opened his mouth and proceeded to tell his mother in a very loud voice that you would be able to see her boobs if she wore the dress. At this point they walked away. I started laughing harder.

the good old days

I can't say that I ever really got into the Transformers as a kid, but my older brother was all about them. I think he even had his Transformer pillowcases until the age of 12. In honor of all things 80's that rocked (including me, seeing as how I was born in '83) here is a little Transformer love.

On another note, I feel bad for kids these days. Their Saturday morning cartoons are nothing like we had. I think people are realizing this. Why else would I have woken up one day and seen Babar and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the tube?
