Movie Season

I keep renting DVDs from the library, but during the summertime the DVDs just sit there. Now that fall is around the corner, I feel the urge to just dive in and swim in a sea of celluloid.

G is a big fan Entourage, I'm a big fan of In Treatment, and there's a Seinfeld reunion on Curb Your Enthusiasm this season. Plus, we're both Real Time with Bill Maher junkies. However, we are not subscribers of HBO. We've been talking it over and mostly decided to order it. I think G was waiting for me to call our cable service and order it. Unfortunately, I am completely burned out by speaking with customer service (and I use that term loosely) reps and phone trees.

So Sunday I made an executive decision. As I was sitting on the couch watching Tiger try to come back for a win, I pulled up the cable service web site just to see if I could lazily click a button and order HBO that way. And it worked. Within two minutes, I had HBO.

I can't decide which I love more. Movies or technology to help me watch more of them.
