More movies

A quick trip to Circuit City to buy a digital converter box for the TV in the basement (we don't have satellite for that one) resulted in a dozen or so DVD's. How can you pass up a $4 DVD? We got some that are replacements of VHS tapes ("Dances With Wolves"), some that are favorites of mine ("Reservoir Dogs"), a recent good one that we haven't seen yet ("Syriana"), and some that just look exciting and/or scary ("Bugs"). And one that made me go "YES!" when I pulled it out of the bin: the twentieth anniversary edition of "Dirty Dancing." Score!

Have you noticed that Ken and I love our movies? With rerun season coming up, I'd say that we have plenty to watch!

We also looked at the digital cameras, and Ken debated getting a small one of his own until he saves up enough for the Canon SLR that he wants. Then he debated going ahead and getting the SLR, because he already has quite a bit set aside for it. Then he decided to get neither, and said he'd wait until he had all of the money for it. Now that's some willpower, and sticking to the budget! Of course, the DVD's weren't strictly in the budget either, but he does set aside money for stuff like that.

We dropped off Blacky for a recall repair and oil change tomorrow. It was fun to roll down the windows in Slick and cruise along on this warm day. We jammed to Kid Rock a bit. It feels fairly humid, so I think we probably will get the storms they're forecasting for later tonight.

Don't forget--part one of "The Andromeda Strain" on A&E tonight!

We may need to eat early and have popcorn :o)

Funny, us eat early - NOT.  Our systems went into shock yesterday eating around 6:00 PM.  I can honestly say it has been year since we ate that early at Nutwood.

Y'all have such great taste in movies, of course I'm a bit biased cause I like the same movies. I also have a copy of Syriana but I haven't watched it yet. I have seen Dirty Dancing so many times that I'm really annoying to watch it with because I know entire passages of dialogue which I feel compelled to recite with the characters. "Nobody puts Baby in the corner."

Already have Tivo set to record Andromeda Strain.--Sheria

... well, I watch movies, but with my uh, fluid home situation, haven't been able to get settled ...

... did just watch Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn in 'Charade' ... prolly start catching up to my movies in the fall ... until then, I will just cope ...
