Netflix

Here's a hilarious article in Slate about looking at your friends' Netflix queues. I love this part:

"It's the Netflix version of the divided soul: The end of your list is the person you want to be—Eraserhead, the eight-hour BBC Bleak House, the complete Werner Herzog—while the top is the person you actually are: Wedding Crashers, Scary Movie 4, The Bridges of Madison County."

I have some pretty embarrassing movies on my queue, but my only Netflix friends are Rusty and my dad.

Oh dear. You should see my husband's Netfix queue. It's all his cheesy macho kung fu and horror movies, and then a random selection of documentaries and girly flicks for me. If someone were judging his list soley as "his" they'd think he was a hermaphrodite. Heh.

Mine is an embarrassing hodge-podge. There are some interesting documentaries about the injustice of Wal-Mart and little kids in the south learning about the Holocaust through the collection of 6 million paperclips. But I keep moving the complete seasons of Curb Your Enthusiam to the top. Sad.

Katie - My boyfriend and I are totally opposites when it comes to movies, so we get the most bizarre recommendations.

Karen - For me, it's Sex and the City that moves to the top. I'm going through the whole series for the 2nd time. I'm a dork.
