lloyd dobbler

this past weekend kristin & i ventured into a best buy for the first time in probably a year. those stores make my skin crawl. you walk in & there is music blaring on 20 different radios, 10 TVs all with something different on screaming at you, & kids running around playing video games. it's not my ideal shopping experience.

about the only reason i ever visit one of these stores is to purchase a DVD which i've been caught saying is such a ridiculous thing to do. kristin & i subscribe to netflix so rarely do we have a need to rent, let alone buy a DVD. of course this weekend the "gotta have it now" bug hit us hard & we both wanted to see 'say anything.'

about two weeks ago, ben, updated his gTalk message with an oh say famous quote from one of my favorite movie characters lloyd dobbler. the quote was, "i don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. i don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. you know, as a career, i don't want to do that." for a great list of 'say anything' quotes visit IMDB. ever since reading that quote i've been wanting to see the move again. i have it in a closet at home on VHS, but i no longer have a VCR to play it on...

anyhow, we rushed in & out of best buy as quickly as we could. we coughed over the $10 bucks for say anything & kristin couldn't resist from buying the love story & tear jerker, the notebook. in total we spent just under $25 bucks. that's almost two months worth of netflix. whatever you do, don't tell our accountant that we splurged.

if you haven't seen 'say anything' you were either born in the 80s or you've been living on another planet. go & rent it now. it's such a great flick & i assure you that you too will become a fan of lloyd dobbler. you'll also never be able to hear the song, in your eyes by peter gabriel, without thinking of lloyd dobbler.
