Shows and Movies You Thought You Wouldn't Like But You Do

Yesterday was our only evening with nothing planned. I cancelled tutoring and looked forward to an evening of DVDs and writing on the couch.

My MIL was here. I tried to crochet, but that yarn is AWFUL. Skinny, then fat....ugh. We invited her to dinner, so my evening didn't start till almost seven, and I found out I had the galleys for Smoke in my inbox, so I did 100 pages of proofreading last night. You'd be amazed at how many mistakes I found. She had flowery shampoo one minute and fruity the next. And I'm not the only one reading this! So that was my evening. Then I spent the morning today rebuilding my "soundtrack" for my WIP. When the dh changed the OS, all my playlists went bye-bye. They're still on the iPod, but not on the puter.

In a couple of hours, we'll have our teacher Christmas breakfast. A parent will watch my class. Do you know how HARD it was to find a parent to watch my class? Last year I had three show up and two more volunteer!

At the SARA party, the hostess was talking about how much she likes the show Dexter, about the serial killer, and how she never thought she would like a show like that.

I had the same reaction when I first saw Sex and the City. I never thought I could like a show where the women talked like that, so open and blunt. But the friendships hooked me and I love that show.

When V for Vendetta came out, Trish went to see it with another Noodler and for the life of me I couldn't picture the two of them at that movie. But when I saw it - MAN. It is a GREAT movie.

Recently, Kill Bill was on TV so I Tivoed it. It was a movie my brother and his wife liked and we do NOT have the same taste. But I ended up really enjoying it.

BTW, I've moved Dexter up in my queue. What movies or shows did you not think you'd like, and ended up liking?

Mary, I felt the same about Sex & the City. I just didn't think I ever needed to see that much of Kim Catrall, but the friendships and hilarious dialogue won me over. I HATED Bones when I first started watching it and only kept on because of my mad-hot crush on David Boreanaz, but by the time Angela's dad appeared on the first holiday episode, I was hooked.

And YAY on the galleys! How exCITING! (Yeah, I just squealed. Sorry.)

Hey, it's someone else with a mad-hot crush on David Boreanaz. Great taste, Tracy. :)

I guess if I go back several years, I would have never imagined I would like shows, movies or books with vampires, but as you know I'm a huge fan now. Who knew I had this dark side? :)

Tracy, that first holiday episode of Bones was AWESOME. I enjoy the show, but in the early episodes I could take it or leave it. I think it was Temperence who set me off.

True, Trish, I never would have picked you for a vamp gal ;)
