I was just thinking that when I watch a dvd at home there are certain rituals I seem to always follow. I really only just noticed this recently. For me it's wait for nightfall. I don't have a dedicated home theatre and glare from sunlight on the television drives me nuts. I also need peace and quiet, so I try to plan movie night when I know I have nothing else going on and friends won't be calling or stopping by. I like to pour myself a scotch, light up a cigar, lay down on the floor with my dog and just forget about the real world for a couple of hours. This ritual of mine is acually killing me this week. I won't be able to meet my own criteria until next sunday, and I'm sitting here with a copy of LOTR in my hands.
