Maybe it’s a product of not having any friends or family in the area to keep me occupied on a Friday night… or the fact that my first paycheck since mid-December is “on hold” at the bank until tomorrow… or the fact that I’m just lame and wanted to do nothing much after total information overload the past 3 weeks… No matter what it was, I decided to sign up for Netflix on Thursday.
Now I’ve had Netflix in the past but deactivated my account because a) I wasn’t using it enough to justify the expense because b) the apartment I was living in had NO box for outgoing mail and c) I was too lazy to drive to the box in the business complex a bit down the road. This was all pre- instant movies and my having a Wii. I loved the service back then and was sad when I closed my account.
But I am convinced Netflix rocks for a few reasons.
- Even though I am a former member, I still qualified for a free month “trial” of their services. Score!
- My movie queue from my prior membership was still there, ready and waiting for me to catch up on all the movies I missed.
- My first physical movie selection arrived on Saturday [Eat, Pray, Love]
- It was SUPER easy to connect my Wii and start watching movies immediately!
Yup I’m a happy camper! Next weekend I promise I will go out and explore the area and get some pictures posted… next weekend.
