For as technologically hip as Denny and I usually are, we’ve really lagged behind in the entertainment technology field. But just as day or two ago, we joined the dark (light?) side. We ordered a Tivo and signed up for Netflix.
We don’t get out to movies very often, partly because of how expensive they are and partly because nothing’s ever playing at 8:00. 8:00 is exactly when I want to watch a movie. 7 is too early; we’re still winding down from work and dinner and exercise and all the evening stuff at that time. 9 is getting a little late, especially on a weeknight, because I am a wussy and get a great thrill from being asleep by 10:30 (in my own defense, I have been getting up early and exercising).
So, since we don’t get out to the movies much, we don’t see a lot of the films we’d like to, and Netflix seems like a good way to manage it.
The Tivo is just for the hell of it. To be embarrassingly honest, what put me over the edge was Lifetime changing their schedule so that Golden Girls is on during the day when I’m at work instead of at night when I’m home. I just don’t feel right without my regular doses of Rose being dumb, Blanche being slutty, Sophia being spunky, and Dorothy being mannish.
YOU SHALL BE MINE AGAIN!
