Once in awhile we joke that he's watching a silent movie, that there are so many eff words in a movie that get bleeped out! I'm 54 years old and have gotten through life with having used that word maybe a half dozen times, yet some movies can't seem to get through 90 minutes without using it a hundred or so times.
I invested in Netflix for my husband. It is great. He's ordering all these documentaries and BBC series.
yeah, you're right. I was in high school when Michael Jackson was
really huge, with Thriller and all that and it saddened me that he
became what he did and that he died the way he did. but, seriously.
they are STILL beating that dead horse in the news (pardon the pun).
and as long as I've been around, before it actually, there has been
the Kennedys. Teddy's death is pretty much the end of an era.
but here again, there are other things going on in the world.
reporters and journalists are not my favorite people, anyway. they
are kind of like vultures and they seem like it turns them on the
worse the news is!
I'm 43, and while I have to admit that I have dropped the 'f-bomb'
more than a half dozen times in my life
it is really annoying to have
75% of the dialogue of the movies these days being swear words.
they might as well be silent movies when they run them on tv -
there is so much bleeping out you miss half of what's going on!
and we have a 3 year old, too. every once in awhile my husband
will stumble across something on the tube that is NOT a good idea
for my little sponge to be watching and I have to remind him HEY!
little boy here, remember??
yeah, netflix rocks. I just got a membership myself.
