This is about 82 movies. I'm sure there are some I forgot, but the point I'm making is that I spent too much time and money on films. I consume merely to consume, and often take nothing from the experience and lose time in the process. Let us say each movie was 90 minutes, those 83 films translates to more than five straight days. Granted this is over a period of seven months. On second thought, I'm using my time perfectly well. On with the shew.

I am amazed that you remember you watched all those movies. I've probably seen less than 10 movies in the last 7 months and I can't remember what they were.

I've also been impressed by how much ice cream you eat.

Well, it is easy to remember when Netflix has a list of every movie I've ever received from them. Then I went through the list of movies I'd rated. I'm sure I've missed some but you get the gist.

And as for the ice cream, that's really just because I always mention it in my blog that it seems like I eat a lot.

Think of how many friends have benefited from your movie recommendations and comments. You've probably saved your friends collectively more hours of wasting time with bad movies than you've spent watching. Go you--saviour of others' time.
