Eatin' my words....

a couple years ago, K. & I went to the big movie theatre in Anchorage to see some movie (the name escapes me) and we had to get there really early to get tickets. After we bought our tickets we were forced to kill time among the mass of pre-teens whose parents had just dumped them at the cinema for the evening. Being the 'old people' that we are, we sought out a pinball machine. Upon entering the arcade area we were intrigued by a crowd of kids all huddled around some bizarre looking game. It looked like some weird mini-dance floor thing. And this really big kid was just stompin the hell out of the thing. I was sure, by the way he pounding on the thing, that it was about to die at any moment. Keith & I had a lengthy discussion (well atleast til our flick started) about how absolutely assinine this 'game' was. We had no idea that Dance Dance Revolution was the hottest thing going. Fast forward to this past Christmas. D. was begging for some cheapo karaoke machine that had horrible ratings. Instead we opted for the Dance Dance Revolution for the PS2. Like most people I know, our kids get way too much at the holidays & the DDR box got put in the game closet as we cleaned up the loot. Finally today, D. asked if we could try it. If you haven't ever tried this, you must add it to your to-try list. It was a freakin blast (translate: not as much fun as have Cosmos with my friends, but definately better than being forced to watch "Finding Nemo' for the 3047th time)! The kids & I played for hours! Talk about a butt kickin' workout. Now I feel bad that K. & I made fun of those kids in the theatre...okay....maybe not so much. But you get my drift. I was soooo wrong about this game. D. was really good at it too...girl has got moves. I have included pics for your viewing enjoyment....and yes, I am aware there are none of me....for the same reasons I would not attempt this game in public...although the game is fun, I am no Shakira & well..let's just say, it wouldn't be pretty!

What- no rhythm girlfriend?? I've heard about this but have never seen it or played it. It would probably be very fun - laughable like Twister. Man is D tall!!! and beautiful of course - that goes without saying (it's a family trait). I can't believe how much they've grown since you were home last. Can't wait to see them again! Love ya!

A neighbor of mine has this and all of the kids love it. I don't have a Play Station, but if I did, I would definitely try it!
