Variety

For some reason my husband and I can not grasp the meaning of variety. What I am speaking of...is the fact that when we sit down to eat some grub, we always have to pop in a movie. We don't just have one movie, people. We have at least 30 different movies that we could choose from. Not a whole lot of pickings. After watching each movie three times since we've been married. My goodness, it gets old. We find ourselves reciting line after line! And, my husband...is a whistler. I know some of you who read this blog know exactly what I'm talking about. He hears a tune that he "thinks" is catchy, and whistles until he can't whistle no mo. It's really great, just WONDERFUL. Can't tell you how much I love it. K, I do love it. Even if it sometimes makes my ears bleed. Oh, I'm just kidding. The movie that we seem to pop in the most is, Far and Away. 




Can't seem to get enough out of that one. We have watched that one 20 times since we've been married. So you know, when it is my job to pick the movie for the night. I do not pick Far and Away. I bet you could guess who does. Sweet, sweet husband-o-mine. I love him to pieces, I just brace myself for when the movie is over and the whistle begins it's departure. I can only handle so much of John Williams! But really, if I don't hear Will whistle something has got to be wrong. He usually whistles all the time, so that tells you something about him. :) Hulu is the next greatest invention. This is where we watch Lost. We do NOT have cable, I repeat we do NOT have cable. So, we just watch our favorite shows for free. It's great. So, I guess it's not all that bad. Life is good my friends!

How that kid can whistle. I know of what you speak. Oh, and I lived 2 and a half of my married years without television of any kind. It's possible...though I can't live without my Thursday night NBC comedy lineup now.

Not a drop of cable here and don't miss it. And love freebees from Netflix! Now if the world goes to heck in a handbasket and it's all over the boob tube, I'll be the last to know. --and yes, the whistling -- especially annoying in the am.

I knew you would know what I was talking about--Emily and Marlowe! I'm surprised that to this day, I can't whistle a tune. I try, Will attempts to tutor me, but it's a no go. It's okay though, I've accepted the role of being the whistlers wife. It's all good...really!

Very true Marlowe--We're thinking of signing up for Netflix. I've heard It's a great alternative for TV.
