Though I have no recollection of adding it to the queue, NetFlix sent me Full Frontal last week and I finally watched it yesterday. I was surprised to enjoy it, especially given the tepid reviews [metacritic]. I can understand why most reviewers didn't like it, but I don't mind the occasional flat knowing entertainment. This, I think, is why I read Bret Easton Ellis novels. I know that they aren't quite good, but there's something interesting there. I'm not sure that I would recommend either.

One thing that I found striking about the reviews was the general dislike for the grainy digital video sections. Maybe this is generational, or not obtrusive on my small television, but I didn't mind that at all. I think it looks kind of neat.

other weekend activities included: cutting the too long IKEA curtains and using magic tape to hem them, working on an analysis project, going to the IMA, having dinner at the Ethiopian place with Carole, and watching Sunday television.

The potted tulips purchased in Mount Vernon are already blooming. It's kind of ridiculous, but I was hoping that it would take longer.

How do you like NetFlix?

It sounds like it's almost too good to be true ...

But maybe it's just really as cool as it sounds?

I'm pretty happy with NetFlix. The turnaround is fast and it's fairly easy to use. It's useful to me because I would forget which movies to rent if I went to the store.

On the other hand, I probably don't watch enough DVDs for it to be worthwhile. Consequently, the NetFlix envelopes sit around for a week or two before I get around to watching them.
