Wi-fi and Netflix.
In my post yesterday, I mentioned that I’ve been renting movies off of iTunes to watch while I run on the treadmill. The time just fliiiiiiies, it’s a welcome change from my usual Kesha/Rihanna/Katy Perry playlists and I also don’t have to attempt to read the closed captioning off of the gym televisions. Makes me dizzy. Plus, the closed caption typos are terrible.
So watching movies on my iPhone is awesome. Great new trick. But iTunes rentals are $5. That adds up. Even though I think “What’s Your Number?” was totally worth it. I’m obviously no movie critic, but I loved it. Chris Evans is a stud. Added bonus.
Anyway. I feel like these rentals are going to add up, and I just don’t have the coin for that. The answer? Netflix. WHY DIDN’T I GET NETFLIX EARLIER? I feel like I might be one of the last people on the planet to sign up. I’m going to pay $7.99/month for a whole bunch of entertainment, as opposed to movies for $5 a pop.
And my gym has Wi-fi. I win all around. So maybe I’ll never get off the treadmill again. Or the Stairmaster. See, I can be a gym rat and a TV addict at.the.same.time.
You know what else? I can finally watch the documentary “Food, Inc” (albeit in my pajamas on the couch, it’s not the kind of mindless entertainment I want during runs). I’ve been wanting to see it forever. Have you seen it?
