stardate 12042006

Its a little odd (not that I mind) that I got three comments on the same day several days after I posted (comments are good, very encuraging to posting). I guess sunday nights are just a popular time to read things online.

we officaly canceled martial arts club till after break. Tonight a number of the members had other plans (including myself) and next week I imagine studying for finals will prevent most people from coming.

And now I must use my blogg to evangelize for the nintendo Wii. (I would evangelize for real, but to the best of my knowledge everybody who reads this is already christian, so I can just make you buy more time wasting gaming hardware). this article was in the new york times a week ago.
"More important, I have already seen the Wii appeal to people who would never pick up an Xbox or PlayStation controller. At Thanksgiving at my aunt's house in New Jersey, there was my 59-year-old stepfather, who hadn't touched a video game since Pong, locked in a tight golf match with my 21-year-old cousin. There was my aunt clamoring for her turn. And most shocking, there was my mother, 61, whom I had been trying to get into video games for two decades, playing tennis so vigorously she bruised her finger."

Universal apeal is very cool. I have to try one of those on my parents :-p the ultimate test.

Well, im gonna head off campus for a couple hours with my friend steven. were going to his sisters house, i dont know why, he didnt say, but its always fun over there. (the little kids running around underfeet reminds me much of my house. except nobody is that little anymore.)[yes, this is a different font, i cant figure out how it got changed]

Hey! I haven't been reading as often as I'd like, but you know me, I finally got around to commenting! As to the Wii, it definitely has a universal price appeal as well as a universal gaming appeal. I'm considering buying one myself, I'd probably enjoy the PS3 most, but not enough to justify the price tag. And something about waving my arms around just seems appealing, hey maybe eventually they'll have a fighting game where you can dual wield! Then I could wave both arms around! Pretty good article.
