Do you queue?

Because it's winter and I have so much extra time on my hands, what with kids in school all day and no yard to mow I decided it would be a good time to catch up on some movie watching. I admit to a little bit of pride over the fact that I don't watch much tv so I figured a couple movies each week would be acceptable.

Hi, my name is Tammy and I'm addicted to Blockbuster All Access. For the love of Margaret WHO introduced me to this idea? I'm obsessed. I am averaging 4-6 movies per week. Let's add this up, let's figure a movie averages 90 minutes times 6 movies equals 9 hours each week spent watching movies. It's damn near a part time job!

The pressure, you just can't imagine the pressure I'm under to watch these movies. The nearest Blockbuster store, where I can return my three online rentals and in exchange get three FREE in store rentals, is 20 minutes from my home. Therefore it's critical that I return all rentals at the same time to save on time and gas. I had to watch a movie at 10 a.m. yesterday so that I could return them all later in the day and get my new rentals. Although, up until I discovered Blockbuster Online, I hadn't rented a movie in nearly three years I am suddenly obsessively unable to go a weekend without a plethora of movie choices.

I won't even go into the time my daughters and I spend on the computer viewing trailers and adding new choices to our queue. Our queue then needs to be updated continually because once we get to the store to choose our three free rentals we suddenly realize we cannot wait for the USPS to deliver our next queue choices, oh no, we must have them NOW!

This of course begs the question, what's in my queue? What's in your queue? Please share, I NEED more choices!

The next 10 movies in my queue are:

  1. Closer
  2. School of Rock
  3. Legally Blonde
  4. Goal
  5. Weather Man
  6. Terminal
  7. John Tucker Must Die
  8. Break-Up
  9. Friends with Money
  10. Untouchables

I highly recommend you delete The Weather Man from your queue and add these in its place. ;-)

Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Monsoon Wedding, Lost in Translation, Being John Malkovich, Amelie, Whale Rider, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I Heart Huckabees, Almost Famous, Pieces of April, My Life Without Me, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and Man in the Moon
