I sat down to put together this little meme for purely selfish motives. I found myself in the library (ALONE) on Friday, and wanted to check out a DVD to watch. A DVD in the ADULT section. Well, that just came out all wrong. What I mean is, THE NON-CHILDREN section.
And I stood there, along with a couple dozen elderly library patrons and there assorted walking apparatuses, staring at the shelves. Hoping for inspiration. I recognized nothing.
I dearly love movies. But I am clearly out of touch. The last movie I actually sat in a theater and watched, was “Up.” And after purchasing the 3-D glasses, tickets, and small popcorn, the sticker shock was more than I could handle.
I vowed that from now on, verily I say, I will only borrow movies from the library system.
But I need a little guidance. Hence the Movie Meme.
I’m simply tagging everyone in the blogosphere. If you do this Movie Meme on your own blog, please let me know in the comments so that I can come by and take copious notes.
And of course, if you don’t have a blog, you can participate in the comments.
