Netflix is awesome

As mentioned in my previous post, we have netflix. I have been watching tv on my computer for a few years and recently started streaming netflix on it as well. A quick list where you can watch netflix on your laptop is awesome.

On the couch while you watch another show on the real tv

In a hammock

In the kitchen while you cook/clean

In the bathroom (beats magazines)

While folding laundry

While working out

While on the phone with a friend (just say uh huh every few seconds)

Since the beginning of the show Lost I have boycotted becoming obsessed. I had never watched an episode because I am addicted to too many other tv shows. My roommate decided we should spend the summer watching Lost from the beginning. So, we have been netflixing the discs and we just finished the 2nd disc of the 2nd season. If you are familiar with the series then I will jog your memory and tell you that the two groups of survivors were just reunited and we now know how both groups have been living/surviving.

I got to thinking about if I were in their position. First of all I would probably have a panic attack on day 1. On day 2 in foraging I would probably pick the wrong plant and be poisoned. Dont fret there is a doctor on the island (how fortunate). Day 3 I would attempt to fish and probably step on a sea urchin. I really dont think I'd make it a week on a deserted island. I am clumsy and not very resourceful.

Where we are in the series they have recently started washing their clothes. My question is are they wearing the same underwear? I mean what would you do if you were stuck on an island in the same underwear for 41 days (thus far). Gross. They dont have shampoo and they are shacking up with one another...umm no! I cant stand stinkiness. I could get used to sleeping on the beach no problem but how come they havent encountered poisonous snakes in the jungle, I mean come on. Someone is going to get eaten by an anaconda for sleeping under the tree canopy.

Love the show, I'm now addicted.

Things I learned from John Hughes movies

I'd like to devote this blog post to John Hughes. One of the greatest directors in my opinion. His movies, even though I was too young to watch most of them when I was young have taught me many things. Here is a little list of what Hughes taught me.

10. Having a friend that is a little weirder than you are makes you seem a little cooler (ref. Ducky, Pretty in Pink)

9. If you a tomboy and you fall for your best friend (Eric Stolz) you will have to do a lot of work to look as good as the most popular girl in school. Sometimes its better just to be friends.

8. The most popular people in school are always rich kids

7. Nice red sports cars always get you the ladies

6. If you ever stumble upon a parade you should join in the fun

5. Being drunk at Jake Ryans leads to bad things.

4. Driving a car backwards doesnt make the mileage go the other way

3. If your brother gets on your nerves have him turned into a turd

2. Ten year olds are perfectly capable of outsmarting and severely injuring robbers.

1. It is possible to apply lipstick using only your cleveage.

Thank you John Hughes for making me LOVE 80s movies
