You do, Vit, but Prime upgrades it to two-day and includes more stuff in their free shipping. Of course, there's a lot of items not included, too...

I've found that the things not eligible for prime are the things not fulfilled by Amazon, but sold by other merchants. This keeps my purchases with Amazon fulfillment most of the time so I can take advantage of prime!

I don't order that much on the internet or Amazon. So I haven't paid much attention to any of that information. But I think it is time I burst my 'bubble of ignoring' and start learning and paying attention. I have gotten so used to having Spike take care of everything for me, that I just float along thinking that if anything is wrong he will catch it and fix it for me. I ordered a springform pan the other day. If I had told Spike about wanting it I could have saved ten dollars. He has a gift card that I could have applied to my order. And he has Prime, so I could have ordered it under his account. I was never this way with money matters. You would think I was Rockfeller and could just throw money around lately. I need to get back on track.

Wrath of the Titans. Meh. First one broke mythology, this one discarded it. It wouldn't be so bad if the storylines were actually intersting but they weren't. Both movies are pretty forgetable. I'll stick to the original Clash of the Titans (not mythologically acurate either but it's more entertaining).

Last night we stumbled across a 1995 Keanu Reeves film called A Walk in the Clouds. It ended up being a fascinating, sweet movie. We really enjoyed it. Anthony Quinn was a blast in it.

We went to see “The Sapphires” today. Terrific film based on a true story of 4 Australian Aboriginal sisters who form an R & B girl band and entertain the troops in Viet Nam ca 1968. Terrific Music. The story seems a bit romanticized, even sweet if you will, given its time and setting. There is a little bit of history to be learned from the film. Also while the music fits the film, some of it is out of context, that is some songs were not produced or recorded until some years later. A minor quibble. It makes up for this with all the feel good energy . I think the actors did their own singing, so that’s a plus. The movie made me want to get up and dance in the aisles. And I’m not a dancer kind of guy. Luckily, I think they frown on this at the movies, even in the dark. If you see this, stay for the end credits. Due out on dvd in August.

Or you are so used to it you don't notice it any more.

Last night we watched Cloud Atlas (interesting and pretty good) and Hansel and Gretel (horrible movie but fun).
