Did you know that if you were a kid in Ancient Egypt you couldn't skateboard or watch TV? And that the only thing you really studied in school was math. You'd also get married when you were 12 and if you didn't want to study math, you'd get beaten up and have to spend your life building pyramids. It might not have been exactly like that all the time, but that's kinda what I picked up from my history class today. Some of the stuff we're learning at school is actually interesting now - for like the first time ever. And now that the weather is getting colder, I seem to pay attention more at school, because I'm not always looking at the nice weather outside and wishing I was doing something else.

Cold weather also means I'm spending way more time inside, so I'm posting a few of my top ways of chilling out on cold fall days this month:

  • Mission Paintball: - It's a Plug and Play TV game that basically turns your TV into a realistic paintball park. Totally addictive - check it out, right here.
  • Rent Revenge of the Sith - Cool special effects, tons of sweet lightsaber battles and plenty of Yoda. Check out Kidzworld's review right here.
  • SSX On Tour - The newest snowboarding game from EA Sports has tons of high-speed stunts and racing action. Check out this review, right here.
  • Oh yeah, one more thing... I know Christmas is still a few weeks away - but it's never too early to start planting ideas in your parents' head about what you'd like to see under the tree this year. Kidzworld has just lauched it's Top Toy Countdown. It's a chance for you to rate some super sweet toys and games and get some ideas for your Christmas Wish List (hopefully my parents won't remember my mid-term report card when they do they're Christmas shopping). Check it out right here for a chance to win.

    What are you hoping to get for Christmas this year? Seen any cool toys or games that should be on my wish list?

    Later,
    Simon

    I know for a fact that he loves you. Whether he is, in love with you is a different story. I don't know. You say he makes "flirtatious comments" which makes me curious. That's not something you really do with someone you think of as a sister. Teasing, maybe. Flirting, no. -sigh- It probably kills you for me to tell you this, but you might have to wait. He's right. "Don't rush into love. Take your time." Don't worry, if he does, he'll come around. He'll let you know. If not, you'll find the one who's right for you. It all just... takes time.  (I'd like to add more -to both posts, but it's dinner time. I'll be back later to finish)
