It all started with a couch. My latest addiction, that is.
I should add that I'm currently getting over the plague, also known as a sinus infection/strep throat love child for those who are all technical and shit, and I've been on antibiotics since Monday. Antibiotics are the anti-fun of all of the prescription meds out there because, well, you're not supposed to drink on them. Granted, I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to drink on the majority of prescription meds but I'm not really one for following rules. Anyways, these antibiotic critters are real party poopers and don't work if you mix booze with them, thus I've been booze free for almost a week now. It's tragic, really.
I wake up in the mornings feeling refreshed and well rested. There's zero traces of dark bags under my eyes and I'm not dying for water in the mornings, as if I've been adventuring a desert for the last three days. Things have been really different around these parts and strange behavior has started sparking up.
Back to that latest addiction I previously spoke of.
Last night alone, I managed to order 11 new movies. ELEVEN. And I can't even sit here and blame it on the alcohol because I was dead sober. But I just sat there, on that sofa you see above, sipping on some quality Brita water, just roaming hundreds of different titles, buying any movie that caught my eye, because I was bored and I felt like online shopping... but I'm also trying to be a budget diva, so this seemed like a logical alternative.
Until I went and hit "complete my order" on eleven DVDs that may, or may not, arrive completely unplayable.
What damage did I do last night? Let's see.
What Women Want... Hello, Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt for a grand total of $3.74? If you can say no to that, I'm just not sure you are human.
Bride Wars. Because Kate Hudson is everything. Especially for $5.37. I broke the bank a little with this one because I opted for a "brand new" copy. Stay tuned for just how "brand new" said copy will end up being.
Bring It On. Classic, obviously. $4.74 for pure nostalgia, yeah, I'll take two.
Other movies ordered include: 10 Things I Hate About You, Almost Famous, Something Borred, How to Lose a Guys in 10 Days, He's Just Not That Into You, Step Brothers, It's Complicated, The Girl Next Door, Eat Pray Love, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Matilda, and Dirty Dancing.
And I still have one more night of sobriety... the day is young, my friends. The day is young indeed.
My real excitement about all of this is going to be when they all start arriving next week because my mailbox is going to be abnormally full for a few days. Also, I'm pretty sure my mailman is going to think I've got some shady business going on and it's going to be awesome.
So, if you need me this evening, you're going to need to have a pretty decent DVD bargain on hand to get my attention. You've been warned.
Also, I miss wine.
