Numb And Number

Thankfully my migraine is waning. But stepping out into the bitter cold and bright sunshine this morning didn’t help matters. Drinking the free coffee at work did. A bit. I am so addicted. In other news, J and I are embarking on another experiment. Cohabitation has been going fairly well, so I signed us up for a Netflix account. I’ve been considering it for a while. Well, since J purchased our DVD player last summer. It does and doesn’t make sense. On the one hand, we love movies. And we’re total homebodies these days…infrequently getting out to the theater. Or out to do much of anything really. But our local video store has a ludicrously limited selection. And on the rare occasions we rent there, we’re invariably tardy returning the goods. Which results in racking up big old late fees. On the other hand, J and I have such wildly different work and sleep schedules. Not to mention that our tastes span the spectrum. Sometimes they overlap. There are a number of films we’ve both enjoyed…like:
The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.
Anna Magdalena
The Lord of the Rings films
The Matrix
My Neighbor Totoro
Princess Mononoke
The Virgin Suicides
and a few more, I’m sure. But then our tastes diverge. I adore Wong Kar-Wai’s films, which J somehow finds boring. And he loves random films like “The Long Kiss Goodnight“. He’s totally unpredictable. But it’s been some time since we’ve regularly watched any movies together. Our first from Netflix are due to arrive today. I may end up watching “Donnie Darko” and/or “C.Q.” by myself. But it’s safe to say we’ll watch “REVOLUTION OS” together. This should be interesting.
