I'm bad at returning rented movies on time. Like really horrible. Like I refuse to enter a Blockbuster for fear of owing $73 in late fees upon checkout horrible.

Which leads me to the renting of movies on iTunes. Weird, right? Pay $4.99 for a movie you have 24 hours to watch before it evaporates back into... thin air? If I'm ponying up the cash, I want a tangible shiny disc to show for it, goshdarnit.

Enter Friday night. Plans to drink at Dixie's (one of the less douche-y uptown bars) seem... well, not as appealing as they did an hour ago. You know, before a couple of sweaty miles on the treadmill and the discovery of an all new episode of DC Cupcakes on TLC.

So what's a girl to do when wide awake well past midnight, having already devoured the book I purchased to cure such a dilemma? (The Paris Wife, for any curious cats. Infuses Hemingway's A Moveable Feast with the fictional flavor of his first wife, Hadley). A glass of wine might do the trick... but on second thought, I don't feel like crawling out of bed... and drinking in bed seems rather alcoholic. Ah yes, a movie. And yes, that's why I've strung you along, recounting my event-less Friday night, revealing my insomniac tendencies.

It's because... I get, iTunes. I totally do.

(Annie Hall is the perfect nightcap, P.S.)

  1. I read The Paris Wife and thought it was really good. I will warn you that I did cry (I'm a sap). Have you tried the Amazon movie rentals? If you have a tv that can get internet you can use it and it works on your laptop. It is free if you have an Amazon Prime membership.
