Hi, My Name Is JaxVenus, and I Have A Problem...

This was a pretty long, boring weekend. I didn't do anything but work and sleep, and watch a ton of movies. I couldn't do much of anything else, because I was trying to get a gazillion lines in for work so I can make my check be big and huge. I think I watched about 16 movies over the course of the past 4 days. That's cuz I just got a bunch of new ones, and I watched some of the ones I've had for a while, too. The new DVDs I just got on Friday in the mail from the Columbia House DVD Club were:
1. Harry Potter - Chamber of Secrets. (had VHS, just getting it on DVD now).
2. Fight Club.
3. Mr. Deeds.
4. Shallow Hal
5. Two Weeks Notice (again, had VSH already)
6. How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days
7. Bruce Almighty (replacement for the one that went missing)

I also watched Harry Potter and Sorcerer's Stone, Love, Actually, The Hot Chick, Something's Gotta Give, Cheaper By The Dozen, Notting Hill, Peter Pan, Never Been Kissed, Object of My Affection (on TV), Die Hard (on TV), America's Sweethearts (on TV). I also managed to watch a whole lot of regular TV too. Now, that's a lot of watching!! Plus, I managed to type close to 4000 lines..busy, busy busy.. boring, boring, boring. I really do love to watch movies, which is why I buy so many of them, but when you have time to watch that many movies over the course of 4 days, less actually, since I only watched two of them today, so the majority was over three days, it's time to seriously get a life! I just realized that I've bought at least 25 DVDs in just over 2 months. I think I may have a problem. Do they have support groups for DVD-aholics??

I'm still on the pool kick, and I've pretty much talked myself into buying one when I get paid. I just have to decide what kind I want, how big, etc. I've been spending a lot of time going over different types and styles and comparing prices. Because I'm cheap like that, and I want to pay as little as possible. I tried to tell myself no. I told myself that I know I shouldn't. I know it's expensive to keep up and I'll have to be out there skimming and cleaning and chlorinating...it will seriously cut into my movie time..but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. Trouble is, I'm very, very impatient, and once I decide I want something, I want it NOW. It's killing me to have to wait 10 whole more days, and then it will probably be the next weekend before we'll have time to put it up and get it filled, so it's really closer to two whole weeks. I'm not a happy camper. I'm soooo poor right now, it's pathetic. I can't buy so much as a pack of gum for the next ten days..then my check will be gimungous cuz it will be double plus my bonuses..but until then it's not good. I had to get a dang payday loan to cover my rent and cell bill, so I didn't have stuff bouncing all over. GRRRRRRRR. The very absolute worst part of the whole thing is, I really, really, really wanted to go to Harry Potter on the 4th. I've been waiting forever, and I soooo want to go, but now I can't go until the next weekend.. unless someone takes pity on me and takes me. But, there's nothing I can do except attempt to be patient. I'm not good at it, but I guess I'm just gonna have to chill and learn to deal.
