time's a-wastin'

I have found that the best way to procrastinate and waste time when you should be writing a paper and studying for a final is to watch movies on YouTube. Each part is about ten minutes long, so you watch a segment, do a little studying, then watch another segment. Yesterday I watched Confessions of a Shopaholic, which I actually liked. I've only heard bad things about the movie, and I have a special fondness for the books (you know I like a series when I count down for the next book and immediately run out and buy it, even though it's in hardcover), so I figured I would probably hate the movie. Maybe I liked it because my expectations were super low. Anyway, besides that movie, I have also developed an obsession with the Hallmark movies. I know, they're super cheesy, but that's o.k. If you have a chance, I would highly recommend watching The Magic of Ordinary Days. It's my favorite. Love Comes Softly is good too, and there's actually a whole series of those movies. But seriously, watch The Magic of Ordinary Days. It will make you want to be a better person. When I'm looking for a whole movie on YouTube, I search for the title and part 1. They also have lots of great 80's movies on there. I may never buy another DVD.
