I don't make it to many movies. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy them, but it's a time vs. value equation. For the two of us to attend, tally up tickets, popcorn and soda and we're in the $40-50 range. Give me a Star Trek, Star Wars or Bond flick and I'll make it happen. Most other movies I can wait until Netflix, Hulu, HBO, etc., bring it to my living room.
But that doesn't mean I lack for entertainment.
For that it's Facebook and B.Y.O.P. (Bring Your Own Popcorn).
Any given day there's a multitude of trainwrecks to watch, and that's even throwing out the political gladiator games.
Locally we've got two different school levies in play this month. You want entertainment, the strident Vote No vs. the equally vocal Vote Yes group in the neighborhood Facebook group have been dropping the gloves for days, and it's getting brutal. The gifs and memes are going full out, and logic and niceties have pretty much left the forum.
In real estate I watched a case study of how NOT to win friends and influence people in a referral group. The requester basically shut down a "fan club" and told the nominee that she lived too far away to be eligible for the referral. The refused agent wasn't having it, and left a long string of comments cutting on the referrer, making it clear KW is "not well thought of in her area" (BRILLIANT move in a Facebook group founded by and mostly populated by KW agents...sarcasm font just in case there was any doubt).
And of course there's the old standby, ANYTHING to do with Z in any real estate group.
And for even more fun there's that little thing with Newsday and their Long Island investigation results.
So if I want entertainment, throw a bag in the microwave and grab the mouse. A few clicks away and I'll be shaking my head in no time at all. You just never know who's watching.
