First, I need to tell you that I went to bed at 8:30 last night! What in the world? And, then slept in. I might be three years old. But, then, I wouldn’t have slept in. And, I would have wanted Lucky Charms for breakfast. Okay, I’m not a three year old. I am ridiculous, however.

Do you have a Netflix account? Do you love it as much as I do? I don’t watch TV very much. But, on the weekends, or on sick days, or when the kids are napping, I find a movie on Netflix to watch. I pretend it’s my DVR. I don’t have one of those things.
So, Netflix does this thing where they try to anticipate the kinds of movies you would like to watch, based on the movies you have watched. (Did that make sense?) The best part about this is that they make up genres for you. This can be so fun! And, so flattering. Or not. I started writing down the ridiculous ones. Warning: Once you read them, you will forever judge my taste in movies. I’m okay with that.
Understated Indie Roadtrip Movies
Acclaimed Foreign Movies about Marriage
Romantic Foreign Dramas
Quirky Independent Comedies
Heartfelt Movies Based on a Book
Goofy Showbiz Movies
Sports Dramas based on real life
Movies with a Strong Female Lead
Okay, the last three genres popped up based on my family’s choices. I cannot claim to be that normal. I did want to watch Rudy, though. I also cried.
Does your Netflix account give you funny genre titles? Do you love them as much as I do?
