In front of me is my DVD collection. As I look it over I see all these DVDs just sitting there. Ones I bought because they were classics in my eyes, others I bought because they were good movies and others I got from friends, relatives or just because they were a good deal.
One thing, however, is for sure.
I don’t watch them enough. And I wonder what the hell I did with all of these.
Certain ones, such as Friday Night Lights, I’ve never watched. Even more — I’ve never seen the movie at all. It just sits there.
Actually, I’m willing to bet a large amount of my DVDs I’ve never even watched. I need to change that, somehow.
I’ve been debating getting a new laptop. Mine is 3-4-5 years old (can’t remember) and I could use it. It wouldn’t be used for my main computing as I have the PC and I really like that.
But, it would be nice to have a pretty sweet laptop for other things. One for a couple of writing projects I’d like to work on. I could write at night before going to bed, or bring it to softball tournaments and write then, or wherever else. But, it wouldn’t feel like it was forced. I wouldn’t use it for internet at all, except when I’m on the road for work or vacation. Outside of that, it would be a computer for me to do my own work on or something along those lines.
Of course Phat Matt told me the laptop he has, I drooled a little and was like… yeah, hook up the Dell account.
Thankfully, I didn’t pull the trigger yet. Maybe in a couple of weeks. We’ll see.
But the better part of it would be having something where when I travel for work, or on vacation or something along those lines, I could watch DVDs. These new laptops come with great screens and play DVD movies. That would be fantastic. Buy an adapter for the car so I could plug it in and it would be like having a DVD player when traveling.
That would make it worth having all these DVDs OR getting a subscription to Netflix.
It’s an awful expensive toy to get to play DVDs, but I’ve really been trying to get myself into the frame of mind to work on these writing projects come this spring. Something like this might help me.
Of course, I need to start following through on things. Maybe this is a start.
Well, I hope anyway. We’ll see.
