So maybe Netflix is not going to help me get in better shape but it sure makes me happier. I watched "13 Going on 30" today. I saw the first 30 min or so when I was getting a cavity filled at the dentist. They have this really cool system where the DVD player is hooked up to goggles and you see the movie in the goggles. A nice distraction from the drilling and poking.
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for my teeth), I didn't get to watch the whole thing. So I put it in my Netflix queue. I *loved* this movie. It completely met my expectations for a movie: entertaining, fun, great music, and no annoying actors.
I guess I'm exactly the right target audience for this movie since it was filled with 80s songs and references. I was laughing so hard, I almost fell off the couch during the scene where she does the "Thriller" dance. I guess I wasn't the only kid who tried to figure out the choreography while watching that 13 minute long video over and over again! of course, in the movie, she got it all right. I was just sort of uncoordinated. (Oh wait, I still am.)
Anyway, if you're a child of the 80s, rent this movie. It's hilarious. Plus Jennifer Garner is awesome. I've liked her ever since that one episode of Law and Order she was on, where she seduced Benjamin Bratt (I mean really, who wouldn't??). Maybe I should put Alias in my Netflix queue.
Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend. I'm still recovering from Thursday's lunges with Tracy - hopefully I'll be able to get back to my C25K workout tomorrow.
