i have become pretty much the biggest fan of redbox movies lately. for one thing, you can rent them online, and then go pick them up and get beer and chips at the same time. they are only a dollar a day. no one judges my terrible taste in movies except my little family, who has come to realize i will only rent the seriously retarded or gory. you can take them back anywhere, so if i rent them at fred's, i can take them back to 7-11 and get a slushie to treat myself. it really is love. the other day D even asked if we should shut off the cable because we're watching a lot of movies lately. i told him the movie thing might just be an infatuation, so we should wait. plus, i still love watching movies on IFC, sundance and TCM. you never know what they'll show.
this weekend i made sure i rented something the girlchild could watch with us without hiding her hands. date night was surprisingly funny and smart, and i have to admit, i really do like steve carrell and tina fey. i'm pretty sure i'd watch them do just about anything. it wasn't high art, but it was totally enjoyable. legion was the same; enjoyable, fun to watch, kind of badass, but i think the "good guy" might have a brain injury. all the actors were pretty okay (some hammier than others) but jeep? mildly retarded.
i'm supposed to go to the dentist on monday to have some old fillings pulled and some new ones put in, but i think i might cancel. i went in last week for a cleaning and my mouth was sore for a few days. holding it open while they wrench things out is pretty much my least favorite thing ever. i like how my mouth feels sparkly at the end, but i forget how much the dentist really does freak me out. as a child i had some asshole dentist who used to say "open alligator wide" before shoving both his meaty hands in as far as they could go. i always left there bruised and squirrelly. thinking about it makes me shudder. this is why my dental visits are so few and far between, and why i never argue with flossing because it keeps me out of the chair. i'll get those fillings taken care of, but maybe in another week, when i've forgotten how much i hate going.
i've slept like shit all week, not a wink over 6 hours, and usually less, so i really should be in bed now. remind me to tell you about the book i'm reading, and the boychik's messed up molars. that story is actually kind of fun. in a dental way.
