    Must rot brain tonight, but how?

    I'm spending Friday hanging out with my canine mayhem but need to rot my brain on the boob tube. Training videos are out of the question. I started the day with my legs in pain, but I put in 44 miles today, got an easy ride tomorrow, century on Sunday.

    I have all kinds of films I could watch from any James Bond, Mary Tyler Moore, Pixar, Kate Hepburn, Monty Python, the Spinal Tap crew films up to Mighty Wind, have a nice foreign collection (particularly in Russian). I don't even know how many flicks I own.

    However, I'm thinking of a tossup between the Muppet Movie and Shrek to match my mood, time, and intellectual requirements. So what should it be?

    You could always watch a sappy movie on the Lifetime or Hallmark channels. Or a "reality" show on TLC. Those will rot your brain easily.

    Don't have cable or satellite. I'm part of the elite that only gets TV off airwaves.

    Reality TV of any kind is out of the question. I want to rot my brain, not vaporize it entirely. But an old Kate Hepburn or Doris Day musical could be tolerable.

    One of the Hope/Crosby "Road" movies would work.

    hehe - You don't give us much of a choice here Sir!

    Personally I have "offroad to athens" (mtb documentary) in my DVD - but don't fee like watching it.

    Have two books started and well into - but don't feel like reading

    Have cleaning supplies to go and kill every buggy imaginable incorporating pine-sol in my basement - but don't feel like it

    And so - I have Alice in Chains on surround and sitting on butt in front of computer cause I'm taking tonite as downtime and feel quite good about it.

    Tomorrow I go and swab out Mom's garage because for the last >year she has complained about the amount of mud she's tracking in from garage to house (can I roll eyes now ...).

    hellofa weekend I have set up Oh but taking off roader to some trails Sunday morning though.

    I do have a bunch of them and know them by heart. They use the same sets and the plot is always identical, so it shouldn't matter which one I watch. Still, Muppet Movie is a "Road" movie of sorts. I'm partial to "Rainbow Connection" and "Movin' Right Along..."

    Just for the record, I went for the Muppets. I knew I could count on Foo for guidance in my time of critical need
