Have you guys tried that "Redbox" movie rental at McDonald's? It's actually very fast, cheap and easy. Just touch the movie you want to rent and swipe your credit card. $1 per night. As much as I loathe the Golden Arches the movie rental box rocks. I'm sure it was created by some vending-machine hotrodder and then bought by the red-shoe'ed clown. It's a good idea and I look forward to seeing Blockbuster and Hollywood video go down in flames.
The downside to loitering at fastfood establishments is that my kids fall for the classic lure of the monstrous "Playplace" parks inside and now they beg to go. I like the idea of a warm place for them to run around and have fun, but it also meant I had to choke down a Whopper today (I still wouldn't go to McDonalds). I think a large part of my bad attitude may stem from the fact that I get very little enjoyment out of eating. Do my taste buds not work right or are Whoppers just nasty? It also breaks my rule of only ordering hamburgers that automatically have cheese, but I didn't realize that until after I ordered.
