I forgot to mention that in Anchorman, the same guy that's starring in The 40 Year-Old Virgin has the funniest role in the whole movie. He officially earns the lost Johnny Depp respect points.
Technically, my first month with Netflix ended on the 10th. I have to say, I've been impressed thus far. I have had one little problem, though. Because I'm a nerd, I keep track of the movies I'm watching on Netflix just to make sure that I'm getting my money's worth (i.e., making sure I'm paying under $3.99/movie, the Blockbuster alternative). I also keep track of when I return the movies and when Netflix receives them. I returned a movie last Saturday. Past history would tell me that they should have received the movie either on Monday or Tuesday. No such luck. On Thursday I reported that I had returned the DVD, but that they hadn't received it. Let me back up just a little bit. When Netflix receives a movie, you get an email from them. This email arrives in my inbox between 8:00-9:00 am. Fast forward. So, I report it missing Thursday and am told that if I end up with a number of these on my account, it would be put on hold. Yeah, because the mailman losing your DVD is totally my fault. I do understand why they do this, but it just seemed somewhat threatening when I had really done nothing wrong. Netflix sent me an email that said they would let me know if the movie was found. Fine. Friday at around noon I received an email saying that they had received the movie and it was no longer reported as missing. NOON instead of the usual 8:00-9:00. Hmm...methinks that maybe whatever system they use to get movies back skipped over my DVD and that they really received it Monday or Tuesday. I also think someone had to go manually looking for mine and found it. At any rate, other than this, it has been wonderful.
Saturday there was a big luau with the mentors and mentees at some random person's house near LaFortune Park. When I picked up my mentee, she said she had a present for me. She gives me this:
It's three seashells and that fish is from a gel candle. It floats in water. Neat. Now...whadda I do with it? I can't throw it away because the moment I do, she'll ask me if I still have it and ask me to produce it for her. I guess it'll go in the empty slot on my wall display.
It didn't even occur to me to dress luau style until I got there, but I thought this mentor had an outfit fit for the occasion:
Or at least fit to laugh at.
You can say that I look awful, how I have no sense of style (but I sort of have to wear that shrit, so no making fun of that), how you hate my hair that way, how my crooked smile is, or how I have my makeup applied...
