NBA.com Blog: Gilbert Arenas

Entering his sixth year in the league, Arenas will blog on NBA.com throughout the 2006-07 campaign, a season which Gilbert dubs "The Takeover."

My Last Week

Iím BORED. Oh man, Iím soooo bored. Iíve never been so bored in my life.

Itís worse when you really canít walk to do anything. I canít walk to play with my daughter, I got to sit there and thatís so boring. Sheíll jump up and down for 10 and a half seconds and then she wants to go play somewhere else.

The only thing I get to do is play with my son because heís in the same predicament I am Ė heís an infant, he canít use his legs either.

Itís hard. Itís really hard because he wants to be moving around and at the end of the day, I canít do it.

So, Iíll have my dad take him or have his mother take him. The only thing I can do is when I go to the restroom, my daughter likes to play in the bidet. Is that what itís called, bidet? She likes to play in the little water right there. Or when Iím taking a shower she likes to come in there and play in the water there. Thatís the only interaction I have with her. Other than that, she just likes to run wild.

Meanwhile, I have my video games. Itís like my XBOX: Iíve been playing it so much that it broke I think.

And then you know you have to be bored when you watch all three X-Men on consecutive days back-to-back-to-back.

Oh man, what a life.

I try to watch TV, I watched Life like seven times already.

Hmm what else? Oh yeah, Iím getting ready to start watching Batman this week; the complete set.

What else is there to do besides play video games and watch movies?
