No Netflix, No

I am not a movie person. I cannot stand going to the movies, woof. And anyway, usually I cannot sit still long to make it through an entire movie, or on the flip side, I will likely fall asleep midway through it.

That being said, the dozen or so movies that I like, I actually absolutely love, and can watch them over and over. Three of them include:

Recently Netflix removed all of them. 

Story of my life.

  • There are no words to describe how cool Legos really are.
  • I washed my duvet the other day, but once the ordeal was over, I didn't feel like stuffing my comforter back inside it, so as of now I just have a rumpled mess of duvet and comforter on my bed that I just kind of get tangled under every night. 
  • I am currently in love with the L.L. Bean 6" Signature Waxed-Canvas Maine Hunting Shoe. They have been out of stock for months, and it really bothers me.
  • When I hear the name Heathcliff I instantly think of Wuthering Heights AND a fat orange cat.
  • Currently rediscovering my love for Mad Men.
  • Currently rediscovering my love for Harry Crane.
  • Currently rediscovering my loathing of Pete Campbell. 
  • I have mooched off of friends or guys for Netflix for the past 4 years ... as of July, I am responsible for my very own account.
  • Moleskines 'til I die.
  • My favorite bra is going downhill fast, and I don't have a decent replacement on deck.

Long Haul

One afternoon this summer I had to carry a backpack with 3 wine bottles about 2 miles.  It was the worst 2 miles I have ever traveled.  While sweating step by step, it dawned on me there are plenty of jobs and activities that I would not be great at:

  • mail person
  • military person
  • old school newspaper deliverer
  • vacuum salesman
  • scuba diver transporting oxygen tanks to the boat on a hot day
  • ice deliverer
  • UPS person
  • person at sports venues who has to haul cotton candy, beer, peanuts, snow cones, fresh lemonade up and down steps
  • meter reader
  • encyclopedia salesman
  • furniture mover
