Movie Mood

The thing about working so many hours is that it leaves me with very little energy, and since I'm at a computer all day, I have periods where, much as I love certain online activities, I'm just not in any kind of mood to be in front of a computer all night. Shocking, I know :)

In any case, with all the books packed save for the four I bought with birthday money, and have already finished, and the one I'm about to pick up tonight, the only thing left to do is veg in front of the tv. And since we moved furniture which apparently killed the downstairs cable feed, if I don't want to be in the computer room, the only thing I can watch is movies.

So, we've been having an orgy of DVD rentals, lately, and not from NetFlix, because I've emptied my queue there, until after we move.

Last week, for Fuzzy's birthday, we saw Signs in the theater, and then came home, and plowed through The Time Machine, The Imposter, and Legally Blonde, and over the last week, we've seen America's Sweethearts and An Ideal Husband, as well as various episodes from Season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which is one of my guilty pleasures.

Most of these have been things we've both watched, though some have not. I don't think Fuzzy was in the room while Dinotopia was playing, for example. Last night, though, I not only cooked real food (only chilli, but, still, not from wrappers), we watched a movie we both enjoyed: The Count of Monte Cristo. It wasn't at all true to the letter of the book, but I loved the use of Malta as a stand in for early 19th-Century Marseilles, and I think they kept to the spirit of the books quite well.

And on that note, my last page is printing, and I'm ready to shut down the copier, and head home.
