wed nights and little kids

.....little kids. they have so much energy. and it makes me wonder - was i that hyper? i wouldn't be suprised. they either wanted me to throw them up in the air, or spin them around. and as soon as i'd put one down, there would be 2 more that wanted to do it. and they always wanted to go higher or faster. but eventually they had to go home. i like working with them. i've learned a lot from teaching them. and they like me too.
today, i went to play halo at a friends house after school. and no matter how many times i play, i still come to the same conclusion: it isn't worth what people put into it. it can completely change people (including me) so much. it means way to much to a lot of guys. its really quite pathetic. i'm glad i don't have an xbox. i don't think it would help me at all. and besides...i still have tony hawks and nfl blitz. and othere stuff. like family, and a job, and devotions...i wonder how much time is spent playing games vs. reading the word. i know it is way out of proportion for me...and all i have is a n64. i'm not trying to judge them, but i'm just wondering... anyway, some of the actions seemed rather childish, including some of what i did. i think we would all be better off without such things.

is it just me, or where all of the kids INSANELY CRAZY on Wednesday? I mean, they're always hyper, but last nigt was especially bad. Especially when all the girls started screaming. Robbie and I practically lost our hearing. It was painful.

Amen about Xbox. I mean if you added up all the hours that some guys spend on those things... its like a whole year of your life!! Unless it's DDR... then it's OK.
