    I have been without power for over 24 hours now. Living on a generator for heat and essentials like internet and tv. I'm catching up on some Netflix on-line movie watching and just watched Teeth. A weird movie about a gal who has teeth in her vagina. I wonder what other strange stuff I can find to watch. :D

    I am also trying to do some educational stuff like Turning Points in the Physical Sciences and Michelangelo & the Sistine Chapel documentaries. I'm going a bit stir crazy here.

    I need to check pasture fence for downed trees but don't really want to know how much fence repair I have ahead of me.

    LOL. I think I might skip that movie :eek: But I've been on the couch Netflixing it all day too. I love the never ending supply of movies on demand :)

    Shelly, do you have your computer hooked up to your TV? I did that a few months ago and not only did it increase the movie experience I now surf MWH for a 63" monitor ;D

    What's Netflix? I remember seeing it but am not familiar with it. We've been watching lots of stuff on HULU, it's free.

    They send you DVD's in the mail. If your on their 3 at a time plan, I think it's $16.99 a month, you have unlimited DVD's plus they have like 16,000 movies you can watch instant too.

    I just can barely sit long enough to watch a movie. We own hundreds of them and my son and husband have watched them all atleast 10 times ::)

    I want to hook the puter up to the TV but don't know how. I'm sure I just need a special cable but have no clue what to get. Maybe Radio Shack will know? I have a Compaq laptop I'm watching on. I love using the ear buds. For some reason the little speakers aren't loud enough for watching Netflix movies.

    I finally got power back. Took a hot shower and feel human again. Here I whine about no power for 24 hours and there are people going on day 5 or 6 without. I'm a wimp.

    Today I watched Turning Points in Physical Science 1-5 and Teeth. Yesterday I watched 3 things, one was a documentary on chronic fatigue syndrome, a documentary called Girl 27 and I can't remember the third one. I'm usually not good at sitting still but these past two days I've gotten better at it.

    I can watch documentaries and I really like those crime related shows but I've never been one to sit and watch a movie. I can't get interested much in fiction books either but love non-fiction.
