Has wandering and playing replaced pondering and praying?

I read a good talk today about selfless service by Elder William Bradford. Elder Bradford distinguishes things that are fun and "interesting" from those that are important and necessary. Among these necessary things are self-less service.

I thought it was a great talk, and y'all should read it.

A Reid Family Tradition

My brother and I share an interest in arcane facts--particularly facts about camp pop culture. Needless to say, we spend a lot of time looking up plot summaries for Darkwing Duck or researching the Great Gazoo and his gay tryst with Snagglepuss.

Tonight, my wandering thoughts have lead me to the live action Batman show. After looking over the villains and all their henchmen on the Wikipedia page, I'm going to have to go through all three seasons. My brothers and I have always mused over Cesar Romero's perma-smile joker, and his clever plots. But never did I realize that he seduces a cheerleader. And I never realized the amount of 60s flower power kitsch. (Apparently, in the third season they start using more 60s slang and reference hippie counterculture!)

Needless to say, I've got my entertainment planned for the next month.
