My husband loves movies. He loves getting movies and DVDs from the local library, often. Me? Not so much. We have this never ending tug of war. He wants me to watch with him, but I want to work on the piles of work that keep accumulating around my house (theatre, school, church, kids, housework…the list goes on and on.)
A few weeks ago he got the entire season of Freaks and Geeks. I watched a few episodes, but that was it. This weekend he brought home a movie with Val Kilmer and Robert Downey Jr. I know he picked it out with me in mind. Not that I would be drawn to the story line, but he knows as a teenager (OK and into adulthood) I really like both of those actors. I could handle watching a movie.
However Todd always goes excessive in the movie department. He also brought home the entire first season of Dead Like Me. We watched one episode on Friday and I was hooked. Now, 15 episodes later, I’m smacking myself in the head. I could have gotten so much done this weekend. Yet I spent all of my “free” time watching this TV series.
Worst part? I liked it. I liked it a lot. It was addictive. I wanted to watch more and more. If I had season two I would be watching it. Oy! I have a problem.
I have sworn Todd no more series. I can do A movie here or there, but no more 15 hour marathons. This was crazy. (Obviously I loved the series, but I can’t encourage him. 🙂 )
I don’t think he understands why I am refusing now to watch the other movie. Hmmm…
