    High School Angst
    We joined Netflix. We are not sure if we'll be able to get enough use out of it to make it worth while, but b/c of the kind of people we are, we pay a LOT of money in late fees. Perhaps not the $14.99/mo that we're going to start giving to Netflix, but probably $10/mo. It usually is charged more as $25 every other month, but -- it's there.

    One reason we aren't sure it will work for us is because we tend to watch no movies, and then binge. We are known to rent 5 at a time. (and if they're only ONE day late at the place that automatically gives us another 5 days at $4.50 per, waaa laaa!! $25 in late fees!!)

    We're hoping, however, that having Netflix will help with the late fees. Since often, at least two of the five get returned unwatched, 2 movies at a time may work better for us.

    Yesterday, we got our first two movies. And we watched them both. First, Swiss Family Robinson with the girls. They LOVED it. Thing One remembered it from a couple summers ago, but Thing Two only remembered bits and pieces. She was so into the movie, and so anxious (in a good, smiley way), it was hysterical. Her favorite part was the fight with the pirates at the end.

    Then Beloved and I saw Brick. A movie about high school students, and the little world they create for themselves.

    As I said a few weeks ago, Beloved and I saw Napolean Dynamite one evening a few weeks ago. I didn't like it. I thought it sucked. It was a movie about high school students, and the little [pathetic] world that they create for themselves.

    Yet, the movies could not have been more different. Brick was intelligent, and crafty and artistic. It also had my favorite actress from my favorite show in it -- Claire in Lost. I think I have wee girly-crush on her. I definitely am an equal opportunity TV crush person. Current boy crushes are Dr. Burke from Grey's Anatomy and my weather man, Matt Noyes. He brings me storms. Who could not not love that?

    Anyway, I recommend Brick. I will warn that they talk funny. All this "lingo" that takes some time to figure out - if you're even meant to.
