ruined for life :)

My father managed movie theaters when I was a child and I got to see many films for free (popcorn, too!) and that's ruined me for life... LOL.

I NEVER go the the movies now. It's so expensive, the local theaters are FREEZING cold, I really like to DO something while I'm watching (scrapbook, clean, make jewelry, etc.) and I honestly prefer watching dvd's of television shows to movies. I don't watch current tv (except The Office and Bones, which I watch online) so I never see movie previews anyway.

My parents were over today and asked if I'd like to see a movie with them (that was the premise of my last theater-going adventure as well... 9 months ago!). The three of us couldn't decide on one movie though, so my dad saw Tropic Thunder and my mom and I saw Mamma Mia. My mom wasn't expecting a musical, but she likes Abba music and musicals, so we were okay. It was great! Very energetic and fun, great music, and a beautiful location. My mom's going to buy the soundtrack and I'm gonna buy the dvd.

My sister was at work and is going to be so jealous. Haha. If she wants to see it in the theater, I'll happily watch it again... even AT the theater!

I know how you feel! I hate paying all that for a movie. Usually that's what we choose to do if we go out. I'm glad you could go to Mamma Mia with your mom. I want to see that. So, where do you watch The Office? I found it on (great website!) and I am totally addicted! I went through all of their episodes, tho. I haven't laughed that hard at a show in forever! I love turning on a movie and working while I watch. It's more incentive to do something.

I found Bones on (this morning when I couldn't sleep at 4am) and it's a great show! It's a little graphic, but cool.

Haha. I love Bones!

I have Office seasons 1-3 on dvd and I watched season 4 on It seems like 1-3 are always loaned out to someone else. I want my frickin' dvd's back! LOL
