Wow. I've seen maybe 3 of these. And now my perfectionistic, list-loving self feels compelled to go down the list sequentially starting from 1929. (Of course, I've seen a nearly infinite number of "B-" movies, as evidenced by "Spawn" blaring in the background.)

Yeah, I did this partially so I can improve it once I have copious spare time next year.

Isn't avoidance great?

I bathed 1 of 2 cats this weekend. But I'm not sure that counts for anything.

Strangely enough

I have done this exact same thing. I just can't get motivated to do the other one. I think I may have reached a new personal level of lazy. :)

That's our anti-avoidance.

We give our two ferrets a bath every Sunday. We change their litter and the cat's litter fully that same day. Every other weekend we add the dog to the cleaning pile and wash all the bedding PLUS clip nails and clean out ears. And then once a month our cats get washed and brushed. So Sunday's are basically evil pet cleaning chore days...

A. It's not avoidance, it's called giving you mind a quick break. It's a necessary thing to do if one wants to produce their best work. (Erm, at least that's what I tell myself)

B. I guess I live up to me (LJ) name. I've seen all but 4 or 5 on the list and every film back to 1937. Sheesh, I need to get a life...... or a pair or tights with a big ole "C" on them.

To my shock, I counted and realized I've seen 21! Of course, most of them were on TV , but several were seen when I was young and dating (I saw West Side Story three times, with three different dates!!). I haven't been in a movie theater for at least 10 years, though.

I'd love going to the movies, too, if it weren't so expensive. We have Netflix which fills all our needs. There are 6 of us, so that's definitely cheaper.

Ah, yes, the added expense of a big family. Still, date night???
