And you'd think being newly married in a new city would be exhilirating.

I may have mentioned before that we are currently carless and broke in what is quite possibly the least walkable city in North America. (there are, like, A LOT of hills)

Also, we do not have cable, or access to any of our posessions with the exception of this laptop, our clothes and toiletries, and of a box of DVDs we dug out early on. So what have we been doing so far? you guessed it. So here, just for fun, is a comprehensive list of what the hubs and I have watched since arriving in Newfoundland.

  1. Four seasons of How I Met Your Mother.
  2. Two seasons of Big Bang Theory (Which, I hate to say it, just might surpass HIMYM in my books for funniest comedy)
  3. Four seasons of The O.C. (I never watched the fourth season when it was actually on TV. It was mildly amusing, but nowhere near as epically dramatic as seasons 1-3. You know a show is fizzling when they make an alternate reality episode)
  4. X-Men 1, 2, and 3 (I had only seen X3 before, despite owning all the movies, and it's still the best one in my opinion)
  5. Rachel Getting Married (beautiful movie, I could watch it over and over and over)
  6. 007: Casino Royale
  7. She's Out of My League (pretty funny, much better than I expected)
Anyway. The point is, that's a flippin' lot of time to spend staring at a laptop screen. But I am really kind of liking this series thing. And the routine is actually kind of nice - after dinner, after the dog is walked, we snuggle into bed with a cup of tea (or some beer or wine sometimes) and watch a few episodes of something before going to sleep. Candidates to get us through the next couple weeks before moving:
  1. Lord of the Rings Trilogy
  2. Harry Potter 1-6
  3. All the existing James Bond movies. How many are there, exactly, anyway? I'm ashamed to admit I've NEVER seen any of the older 007 movies - only those starring Daniel Craig.
And yes, I know that last statement could have me crucified in some social circles. So be it.

  1. I LOVE your take on Big Bang Theory. That show is hilarious and Kaley Cuoco is gorgeous to boot.
