Well, my girlfriend and I decided to brave the crowds this Thanksgiving weekend to look for Christmas gifts and while we certainly did that, I also managed to snag a few items at deep discounts that I’ve been meaning to pick up for my collection as well. For example, our local Target had The Office Seasons 2 and 3 on sale for $13.98 a piece so I happily scooped those up and added them to my basket. I had to put the series on hold there for awhile after I cancelled my former DVD service, but now that I’m back with Netflix and after picking these two sets up I can start up where I left off at the end of Season 2 and finally get caught up. It’s been awful hard to have the current Season sitting in my cable gueue andt not being able to watch it knowing that so much has happened that I didn’t want to have spoiled for me (unfortunately, I’m aware of one of the big ones despite my attempts to avoid knowing what’s going on). Anyhow, my plan is to fire the last of Season 2 this evening and treat myself to at least a couple hours of laughs.
I also finally picked up Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edward Wright’s Shaun of the Dead at $8.99 and Hot Fuzz for $4.99. These quickly became two of my favorite movies and now I keep an eye out for anything these folks are involved in. While I’m sure these won’t be the last editions I own, I figured at this price they’d hold me over until I could get the Blu-Ray or Collector’s editions. I also picked up The Simpsons Movie for $5.98, so all in all, a great time out with my gal and I managed to to get a few rewards for my efforts in the process. Even managed to see The 40-Year Old Virgin, starring Steve Carell, again over the weekend (TV version) so a good ‘ol romp of a time all around!
