So far this year, I’ve been in vacation mode. Much needed.
I’ve continued 10k steps per day. Done yoga each day.
And, I’ve watched three movies.
Thanks to the economic downturn, I think I only went to two movies all last year.
And we canceled our Netflix membership.
And I’ve worked quite a bit.
My entertainment, along with a bit of local theatre, was basic cable — and of course all the stuff online. I’ve spent much of my free time, since that amazing Iowa primary in January of ’08 — watching political squabbles on cable.
So I rejoined Netflix and filled the queues (the DVD and instant play)
Now, with the instant play feature, it’s awesome. I hooked my laptop to my projector and speakers and voila — movies on the big screen with big sound — and the supply is unlimited.
Will I have to ignore the fascinating political squabbles in order to use that time to watch a few good films?
Not really. It only takes a car radio and few minutes of reading a day — not two hours of repetition on cable — to keep with the news.
