gee, bitter much, henri? i think letting cindy watch SATC to her hearts content is a small price to pay considering she bore you a son. ;)

btw, sam read your last entry and ended up having salami & cheese for lunch the next day...who knew your blog could be so influential?!

henri,
maybe another approach would be more...productive. that blonde bimbo on SATC is always giving hummers and geting laid--does that ever provide a lead-in for henri-cindy activities?
BTW, I don't find that show funny in any way, but I dont have ovaries either...

Oh wait I don't mind the fact that she loves SATC and watches it all the time. But I remember the first time I saw her watching the syndicated version live on TV and trying to work out the logic in my Man Brain. I couldn't figure out why she would still watch it if she owns it, tivo's it and has already seen it a billion times.

But then just thought about the male version of repetitive watching disorder or as I call it the violation of the law of diminishing returns...for me it's Scarface. I'll stop every time to watch it and I've seen it a million times. The only movie I've watched more than Scarface is Friday. And I've probably seen Friday twice the amount I've watched Scarface.

Yeah, I'll do that with movies. If I'm surfing and Pulp Fiction is on (any Tarentino film, really), I'll stop and watch it.

And I own three versions of it - one on VHS, one regular DVD, and an anniversary edition DVD.

I think I do this because finding it on TV is sort of treat. That and you don't have to get up and load the DVD player :-)

Sounds like me and my Diehard problem. I own it and, yet, cannot stop watching it if I catch it while channel surfing. It's a curse, really.
