I was wrong. Please come back. I miss you.
Really, I didn't think I'd miss my digital cable as much as I do. Apparently, I'm watching WAY too much television. And I'm having self-esteem issues with myself, as I have to remind myself that I only have REGULAR cable now, that there is NO FOURTH REMOTE, and I can't hit buttons to make the TV tell me what the channel I'm watching is showing RIGHT NOW.
I've passed denial, anger and bargaining, now I'm on to depression. Acceptance is right around the corner. We're going to get through this. Yes we are.
To ease my suffering, I visited The Redhead's DVD lending library (thanks, Erin!) and borrowed the following: 28 Days Later, Secretary, Unbreakable, Pirates of the Caribbean, and a special edition Seven. I've seen Secretary, but only once when it came out at the theater. Turns out I'd seen 28 Days Later also, but didn't realize I had until about an hour into the movie. Maybe a little more reading and a little less vacantly staring at the people who inhabit my television would do my brain cells some good.
Interesting thing I noted while browsing The Redhead's collection: She doesn't have any "embarrassing" DVDs - you know, the ones we buy because it sounds like a good idea at the time, or the ones we hide of the movies you love but never admit to anyone. Like Good Burger (shut up!). The Wraith (Charlie Sheen drives a killer Dodge!). Breakin' 2 Electric Boogaloo (shut up!). Piranha. Pirahna II. Leprechaun. Leprechaun 2. Flash Gordon ("Flash....ahhahhhh...savior of the universe..." Again, shut up!). I think the most embarrassing movie Erin had was The Cutting Edge, and I can't talk smack about it because Michael loves that one too. Of course, she could be hiding Vampires Los Muertos or Frankenhooker under the couch. One never knows, does one?
