I had previously wondered how a person could NOT come up with a topic to blog about. Prior to this week, I seemed to have at least 3 posts formulating in my head at any given time. Now that school is out and I have time to sit down and write something...nothing comes to mind. Even now, "days later"...ok, ok, inside movie quote.
Speaking of movies, summer is a great time to be able to enjoy sitting down and watching a flick. I have recently borrowed 5 from the library (the maximum limit of my card) and I hope to watch them all this week. I am a movie buff. But I rarely go to the theater. Okay, I have stumbled onto a topic. Going to movies. I was raised that it was wrong to go to a movie theater. I'm not saying that that was good or bad. I'm glad I was raised not going to movies. We still watched them in the privacy of our own home. And I still like to do that now--especially since the advent of the TV Guardian (Curse-free TV), which is a great invention that I would highly recommend. But I have currently been inside a movie theater to see a movie now...5 times. And it has always been with people who have no qualms about the experience. It is also my goal to not randomly go to a movie, but to check out the movie I am going to see to make sure it is worthwhile. And there are some movies that ARE big-screen movies--that is, they are really cool on the big screen. I agree with my cousin Mark when he said that The Chronicles of Narnia: LWW was one such movie (which was the latest one I saw in a theater). Besides, movies are EXPENSIVE! Why waste big bucks on something like that all the time? Especially when, if you are patient and wait long enough, you can get them from the library for 2 weeks for FREE? There is one upcoming movie, though, that I WOULD pay to go to a movie theater to see: Pirates of the Caribbean 2!! I hope it's as good as the first!!
So, the moral of the story: if you have slumped into a dearth of blog topics, just start posting, apparently!
