A couple of days ago I wrote that I suspended my facebook account because it was sucking my soul through the computer screen. Well, soon thereafter, we decided that we weren’t really using our Netflix account so……BLAM, that’s gone now too. Having a 5-month-old and a two-and-a-half year old just doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for mindless entertainment on the TV. It seems that the Bourne Identity sitting on top of our DVD player was not going to play itself after 2 weeks, so we finally gave in and made the decision to join the other millions of people who have left Netflix. We are now virtually stranded on a deserted island with no lifeboat other than our internet connection, which thankfully for you all, will allow us (read: Me) to update you on the doings of our life.
Unfortunately, this essentially puts an end to our short-lived “Really Old Movie Reviews” section for a while. However, Brianna pointed out a unknown fact to me tonight: We have a Blockbuster Box in Canton.
“A Blockbuster Box? What the crap is a Blockbuster Box? Is it like Redbox or something? Blockbuster has a box? That sounds kinda sketchy.”
Brianna said, “Well, this IS Canton.”
And I said, “Oh yeah, you’re right.”
So yes, we have a Blockbuster Box. It probably has some awesome choices like “Look Who’s Talking”, “Anaconda” and if you’re in a feisty mood, “Showgirls”.
So it looks like we might be the only family in the U.S. that has neither cable (or some form of it) or Netflix and has to rely on a Blockbuster Box for a cheap night of entertainment. What have we done???!?!
