Three Things Thursday: The Kind of Random Edition

1. I went out for a little girl's night dinner with my friend Jess tonight after work. We ended up at a Mexican place in town. And the special tonight? Just happened to be 2 for 1 margaritas. And while I don''t drink a ton, a margarita sounded mighty tasty tonight. So that's what we got. I'm not sure if it's due to the fact that other than my $6 Miller Lite in a plastic cup I had in Las Vegas earlier this month I can't honestly remember the last time I had an alcoholic beverage. I'm not sure if it's because of that, drinking them through a tiny straw or the possibility the bartender made them super strong, but for some reason those two drinks? They left me feeling a tiny tiny bit tipsy.

2. I still haven't completely unpacked from my trip to Las Vegas earlier this month. I don't have a ton left to put away though. I've just got a few small piles, mostly of stuff I picked up at the expo or at the sight seeing places we went. I'll get it done after Christmas. Hopefully.

3. I'm considering signing up for a Netflix account. Yes. I'm a bit behind on the times. No. I do not rent movies from the Blockbuster, Family Video or Red Box. Rather I usually just put in my request and the library and wait. And wait. And wait some more. Eventually they get to me. Netflix would be a lot faster. Plus there's old TV episodes. Hmmm. Tempting. Anyone have Netflix? Thoughts? Is it worth it?

Yes. Netflix is worth it. I love it. My husband and I have been using it for years and haven't had any major problems. I recommend Netflix.

Jess said...

DOOOOO IT!!! You can be a Netflix addict like me then ;)

Netflix is awesome. The nice thing about Netflix is the discs aren't scratched up like library discs often are, or if they are, they can send you replacements.

I loves the Netflix! Not only do you get the discs, but you can stream a lot of their stuff for no additional cost over the internet. Soooooo worth the money. They're also really good about changing your subscription to something less or more.

If you have a Wii or Apple TV, you can even stream the Netflix right onto the TV.

Which means I've been having a lot of Buffy marathons lately.

My boyfriend pays $10 per month for hte 1 DVD and unlimited streaming videos option. He shares the account with me so I can watch all the old TV episodes I want. We lget about one DVD each week (unless we get lazy and forget to send it back), but I like watching old TV shows/movies on my computer. It's great for catching up on episodes or seasons that I have missed.

You can always give it a shot and cancel if you don't like it. For $10 per month, he thinks it's worth it since we get about four movies and as many TV shows as I feel like watching.
