Transparent green - and evil

[OOS] Our X-box is called The Texas Rose out of Boston. Everett won her in the grand prize competition at the 24-hour Movie Marathon last weekend. She is transparent green, beautiful and evil.

Having an X-box in our living room is like having a never ending supply of chocolate silk cake sitting in front of a 300 kilo shut-in who wants to go on a diet. I may not want to have/play a little bit, but the idea is always in my mind. One slip and I find I've been on Halo 1 for an hour and the tendons in my forearms are beginning to pulse with the promise of pain tomorrow.

"Just one more checkpoint" is not the thought process of a man trying to practice moderation.
