Ahhhhh the power of Netflix

This isn't a blog so much as its an observation...

On crappy days that seem to be leading you into crappy weeks you tend to be in certain moods. My frustration had been mounting because these moods for me are often accompanied by the mood to watch a certain movie or show. While my collection is actually quite good, I've been finding lately that I don't have what I want and then I go out in the big wide world to search for it...

Finally, I broke down- I got a Netflix account (GASP!!!!!!!) I have to say that I am pleasantly impressed. Not only can I find my British movie and miniseries adaptations of the classic novels that I love so much, I can also find the Bollywood musicals that I adore. I've missed Bollywood-its been way too long since I had a Bollywood party,and now I can have one as soon as my movies get here. Let's hope they're here before I leave for Idaho on Thursday because a) I would love to share the Bollywood joy with my family, its quite the spectacle and b) I also ordered a disc out of the series "The Road to Avonlea" and if Amber and I get to have our Anne of Green Gables marathon then we can add to the Prince Edward Island mania by watching one of the best episodes of "the Road to Avonlea" ever- its called Hearts and Flowers and it is HI-LARIOUS!

So...now, in spite of a crap weekend and bad day today, I get to have the joy of Jane Eyre- which totally matches my mood right now. Thank you Netflix- thank you for letting me watch movies and television on my computer and thank you for letting me have something in the mail to look forward to...

Ahhhh the power of Netflix!
