My neck and I made it to work today (yes, we have become two separate entities and are still not getting along very well, although I can't seem to think what else I can do to make it happy - this is almost as bad as being in a relationship), and realized we had answered the questions that had been sitting patiently in our in-box and had failed to post them...
Q: So how is Blockbuster's service compared to NetFlix?
A: Well, since NetFlix has yet to unveil this partnership with TiVo, and I'm not much of a movie watcher, I never signed up with NetFlix. But, since the Blockbuster deal is $5 less a month and I get 2 coupons each month to walk into a store and rent movies (although, I've yet to do that yet and we're almost out of month 2). There's anywhere from 1-3 days turnaround when mailing (they originally were coming from Chicago, but recently have all been mailed from Atlanta). Coming from someone who has actually gone into a video place and rented a DVD twice in 2 1/2 years, I have to say it's worth it for me. You also get additional coupons to use in the store, like 2 for 1 ice cream or a discounted price for used DVDs.
Q: What do you think about Davis coming back to IU?
A: I'm not thrilled, but this sounds like a nice way of saying if he doesn't pony up next year, he's out.
Q: Have you really stopped going to E?
A: Well, I haven't been since last Thursday. I'm sure I'll go sometime to meet up with a friend or catch a Titan's road game, but until things change for the better, I'd rather spend my time and money elsewhere. I haven't figured out where I'm going to go for NTN on Tuesdays yet, but it's not the end of the world.
