Movie night

We tried to have a movie night last night. Complete failure. I borrowed movies from the library, feeling proud for being so frugal. But five minutes into the first one we realized we'd already seen it ("The dad fell in the well," Steve said, before there had been any mention of a dad or a well). And the second one was simply too bizarre to follow (apparently we lack either eternal sunshine or spotless minds.)

We switched over to DVR'd episodes of Leverage, a show that's ridiculous, but entertaining. I want to be the blond girl who can leap from high places, but I'm not sure a few highlights are enough to make that happen. Then we transitioned to Friday Night Lights. Holy misery, that show has gotten grim. It's good that they have so many low buildings in Dillon, TX or there would be a whole lot of jumping from buildings by non-blonds.

By that point, I was a little past tired, flying headlong into punchy. Steve and I actually had an entire conversation about creating THAT DOG a Twitter account, speculating about the multitudes that might follow. Truth be told, she knows the key to the happy life. Right now she's curled up in a ball on a pile of blankets at the foot of the bed. Later today she'll chew up a few tissues, chase a squirrel across the back yard, and engage me in a game of hide-and-seek with a rawhide chew (why does this ploy work on me? I don't even want the chew...) She's got leadership skills. If she only knew how to type...

i remember reading friday night lights and liking the book, but i couldn't get into the show--no matter how many positive reviews its gotten. :) hope your next movie night is more successful! :)

I love Eternal Sunshine, although I admit it's a bit trickier to follow.

And, I can only imagine, that trying to follow it while discussing whether or not THAT DOG should be tweeting only makes it more confusing. ;o)

I adore Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I'd recommend a movie for your next movie night, but I think I tend to prefer the kooky ones.

If THAT DOG gets a Facebook account, then I'll know for sure I'm the last one to resist the Facebook temptation.

I picked up a couple of movies from the library yesterday too. I just hope I have time to watch them before they are due back. I've really tried to either watch new releases from the library or wait until they show up on tv.

I am now inspired to create a huge keyboard on which THAT DOG could type.

Oh I love that movie, it's one of my faves. But you're right, it's pretty strange. I would totally follow THAT DOG's twitter feed :)

I just watched The Secret Lives of Bees and loved it (not sure Steve would though!)
