Been so stressed lately with work and other things, both me and hubs found some comfort watching movies after dinner. Sometimes we watch whatever's showing in the Direct TV but most times we choose among our dvd collection or our rental service. Watching is a great way for us to loosen up a bit and be ready to do some other things...ehem...extra works, blogs, emails, etc... later on. What were you thinking huh?

...some of our movie collection, hubs love to watch a lot!...

Not that we don't like watching TVmovies just hate it that it takes more time because of the commercials. That prolongs our movie time and limits our activity after that. We don't have a huge collection so we still opt the Directv movies and programs. I also have my favorite programs that I get to see like That 70's Show, Family Guy, Bizarre Foods and some other shows. So if I'm not in the mood for any movie, I tune in to my programs. Do you watch these programs too?

Eventually we'll be moving in to a new place, hopefully this year we'll get to have our house here. Apartment is okay but not too practical in the long run so we're seriously considering a new place that we can call our own and definitely still here in CA. Minor hassles would be transferring all utilities like phone and internet (I hope this can just in a snap!) AT&T, gas and electric PG&E, cable subscription Direct TV in CA, mail subscriptions and mailing address rerouting. Big stress I'd say for minor works. Hahaha, here I am not even sure yet about acquiring our place and thinking about all the stress. I don't think there will be problems anyway even if we do move because we can still continue all the services from our providers.

I better go for now, we just received our movie subscription for this month. Time to watch!!!

  10. JIF Hub Says:

    I agree with Carver. Sometimes after work, I just want to sitdown and enjoy a good movie. By the way, Pan's Labyrinth is a great watch. Have a relaxing weekend everyone!

  11. Ayie Says:


    Same here, since in-laws moved here temporarily i hardly watched TV. The moving thing is still on the planning stage. We need to have sufficient savings before we can acquire one but we're hoping for the best. Thanks

  12. Ayie Says:


    You got it right there! What kind of movies do you prefer? action, adventure, drama, sci-fi, romanctic comedies or comedies?

  13. Ayie Says:


    We also watch some programs from net only if we have longer time watching so more episodes to cover.

  14. Ayie Says:


    Indeed a good way to relax!

  15. Ayie Says:


    Action movies? Great! One of my favorite movie type to really go for in cinemas! What was the most recent action film you've seen?

  16. Ayie Says:


    It's very nice to just sit back and relax after a stressful day of work.

  17. i enjoy watching good movies with interesting plots and not too complicated. I actually like most categories of movies, though I don't see many horror flicks.

  18. I haven't got time to watch a good movie at the cinema. A DVD movie night sounds fun! I can sleep on my bed and watch! :P

  19. Monica Says:
