#65 – Watch a movie with Dave once a week (6 weeks).
This is another of my goals that I actually completed before the end of the year. It all started when I was sick and watched a lot more movies…instead of…you know…cleaning the house or going to work.
You may ask why I had to actually make this a goal. I know that most people watch a movie at least once a week. I don’t though, and I know that Dave wishes I would watch more movies with him, so that’s why it was on the list.
Last summer when we were in LA visiting Dave’s family, my mother-in-law pushed me for an answer about what my favorite movie is. I fumbled on my response. Honestly, I have never been a big movie person. It’s true that I don’t actually have an all time favorite movie. I’ve tried to think about why this is. I can watch hours of mindless cable without blinking, but watching a movie…I don’t know. Maybe I have a short attention span. Maybe I didn’t watch enough movies as a kid. Maybe I like my entertainment to be in the form of mindlessness that can be turned off at any time. Who knows?
So the movies that Dave and I watched together over 6 weeks include…Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Gattaca, Paranormal Activity, The Village and Up. I promise…I stayed awake for all of them.
Oh, and speaking of the cable, we did cancel it in December. I have been reduced to watching crappy network sitcoms and public television. I am still going through serious withdrawal.
