Her happiness has nothing to do with the great movies she has made.

Looking forward to my assignment, Vit! You must give me a hint.

You will enjoy the Tooth Fairy.....creeped me out. And I'm not easily creepable.

a hint, okay, dawg:) i just hope it doesn't ruin the mystery that's hanging in the air...(no, it's not a mystery)
this is a book written by a women i have admired for years. but not for her writing. the book is bound to be highly controversial. it will go against some strong personal beliefs of mine. i am eagerly waiting for it to come out. it will be very soon.

there ya go, dawg. if you guess it, you still have to read it. and write a book report on it...:)

I may give that one a try too

i'd like to find an inexpensive way to watch nurse jackie, for instance. is buying a season's series my best bet?
Sorry Vitauta,

I rent the DVDs from my fave video store at about $3.00 per. Each disk usually has 4 episodes on it.

Granted I'm watching these after waiting for them to be released on video and I'm always a season behind but I enjoy watching the episodes back to back because I don't have to wait a week between episodes.

I really like to set aside a weekend and watch entire seasons.

I'll sign up for cable when the providers offer their channels a la carte and I only have to pay for channels that I'm interested in.

I'm not holding my breath!

Same for our house! People must think we see NO TV. Meh, I see enough to get a fix (if you don't count news-as-noise when I cook it's rarely more than 2 hours a day). I'm a reader. Give me a stack of books and I'm happy. Magazines or box labels work too.

Yes! I must get back to reading more!

My problem is that the only time I have time to read is at days end after chores and dinner.

I find myself dropping off to sleep after a few pages.

Yeah, real life has a way of intruding on living, eh? I've found a couple of authors that write story lines with what I consider "the cliff". Once you reach a certain point in the story line you have no choice but to keep reading till the end! I've been known to be chased to bed by birds singing as dawn breaks. Good think I don't have a job or kids that need me to get up in the morning.
