This morning, I kind of randomly decided to swing by the video rental place, and they actually had the first two Alien films. For months, I've lived out here and harassed them about getting these films back in stock, but it never happened. Maybe every other month, I'd say, "Hey, do you guys have Alien and Aliens?"


"No," they'd say, "you ask that every other month. Someone kept them; we don't have either."

"Yeah, it's a pretty good series," (I ignore what they say for the sake of the script) "you guys should really think about checking them out, maybe stocking them."


This change in the status quo was shocking, and certainly screws up my to-do list.

  • Waste time Watch Alien
  • I dunno, go for a walk? Watch Aliens
  • Cook lasagne
  • Watch the Sox

I don't know if they make days better than this.
