Almost all of my friends have the 360. We all get together and play Halo and Guitar hero. I like Halo 3, but the guitar hero game gets on my nerves after awhile.

I've been playing Scattergories lately with some friends. I don't even care who wins, I just like to see what everyone comes up with. I also really like trivia games like trivial pursuit.

I found this oldies station here in Germany and they have been playing 70's funk and disco all afternoon. It's been kind of fun to listen to. I can imagine my mom dancing around in her platforms and bell bottoms. /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

My favorite writer is Tom Robbins. He is so weird. I never know what to expect when I open up one of his books.
