Yesterday was an ideal day for doing nothing but watching TV on DVD in between checking the NFL scores. Though my collection is quite stocked as is, I decided that, before I embark on a day of doing nothing but maybe eating bacon and watching DVDs, I better go to Target to see about acquiring some snacks and maybe even more movies to assure I don’t run out of things to watch. Well, $80 dollars later, I was stocked with chips and pop and wine and 30 Rock Season 3 and It’s Always Sunny Season 4. Now it’s a little more than apropos that Lost Season 5 comes out 12/08, as it keeps with my like of chronology…3, 4, then 5.
I don’t know why this is, but I am a sucker for a limited edition bundle when it comes to TV on DVD. I rarely watch the bonus features or play with the little accompany-ments that oftentimes just end up becoming clutter and, in turn, trash, but I still like the idea of owning it. As I grow, though, I am becoming more aware of want vs. need. Did I need the new TV I just bought? No, not in the “I need it to live” sense. But did I need it and the new blu-ray player to enjoy Lost Season 5 as I never have before? You better believe it. Now I eat success for breakfast, with skim milk. I just hope this coming weekend is as cold and dismal as this last one. I’m not leaving the house.
