Do you ever get nostalgic for video stores? Last night as I was drifting off to sleep, they popped into my mind out of nowhere. I could almost smell the particular mix of carpeting and plastic that would hit when you walked into a Blockbuster. Maybe the memory was that strong. Or maybe a neighbor was doing renovations. Who knows.

Any of approximately a million Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen movies. It was an important decision, because I only got one VHS on each trip. I wish I chose everything I watch now as carefully.


On the subject of big decisions, here are some newly-posted positions for your perusal:
