Fun in the Sun

Today I went to Hawaiian Falls water park with my good friend Heidi and her 2 daughters. We had so much fun. It was a very nice and relaxing day. Heidi and I went on the lazy river and in the wave pool a couple of times and then spent the rest of the time in our cabana. That's right, our own personal cabana. It was awesome! Our own space to sit and put our stuff, no worrying about claiming enough chairs or anything like that. But the best part .... we had our own personal cabana boy! Well in our case it was a girl :) Anything we wanted, she would go get it for us. We had some sno-cones and some beverages. It wasn't blazing hot today even though it was warm and we did catch a few rays off and on. Not to worry though, I still love my pool - but it was nice to get out and about with friends for a day.

And now, our feature presentation.

I love movies. I really do. Not that you would know it by the list of recent movies I have seen. The last movie I saw in the theater was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which was out just about this time last summer. Yep, its been almost a whole year since I have been to a movie theater.

I have several friends who go to the movies every week, sometimes twice a week. They see every movie that comes out, usually the first weekend it is released. I wish I could say I did that. But I don't. I can not tolerate movie theaters anymore. The parking, the lines, the cost - mostly for the snacks and drinks, the crowds, the employees lack of interest, but mostly it is the other viewers with their inability to realize that there are other people in this world sharing space with them. People have made me stop going to the movie theater. I would much rather wait a few months and watch the movie in the comfort and quiet of my own home, on my schedule, with my comfy couch and big screen TV.

All that being said ... Netflix has been fabulous! We had a minor scare there a few weeks ago when they announced they would be taking away profiles (so that different members of a household could have separate queue's of movies, thus not having to juggle the list so that everyone gets a movie in turn). However, this was quickly remedied by the public crying foul. Thank you to Netflix for keeping this incredible feature :)

Recently I watched Premonition with Sandra Bullock. I really enjoyed the premise, very interesting. Sort of a 'Memento' type vibe going on. I didn't really dig the way it ended but that is not stopping me from liking the movie. Next I have Reign Over Me with Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle - who i LOVE. I'm looking forward to this one. I'll let you know how it goes. Some others in my queue are:

  • Licence to Wed
  • Definitely, Maybe
  • Dan in Real Life
  • 27 Dresses
  • Pirates of the Caribbean, At World's End
  • Helvetica (a documentary about the font, I know ... I'm a dork)
  • Because I Said So
  • Deja Vu
  • Music and Lyrics
I also enjoy watching TV shows that I never saw when they were on. So I have some of those in my queue as well:
  • Northern Exposure
  • House, M.D. (never started this, so I figured I'd go back to the beginning)
  • Torchwood
  • The Lost Room (more of a mini-series)
So that is what I will be watching over the next few months. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to entertain them!

On with the show ....
