I've been a member of Netflix since 2005 and I absolutely love it! Some of my favorite movies are zombie and horror movies in general, Fight Club, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, A Clockwork Orange, Idiocracy, Chicago, Bowling for Columbine, Dracula: Dead and Loving It, Young Frankenstein, Saw I, Saw II, and Das Experiment.
I do not watch a whole lot of TV. Current shows that I watch (online, On Demand, or on DVD) are Grey's Anatomy, the Office, Dexter, Weeds, Family Guy, Big Love, and Nip/Tuck.
Shows that I liked that are not on anymore include Queer as Folk, Huff, and Six Feet Under.
Over the years, I have had several pets. The first dog that I bonded with was Maddie, a black Lab. My family got her in 1995, when I was in 4th grade (I think). She loved to chase tennis balls and eat almost anything. She was a very loving dog. On July 16th, 2007, we said goodbye to Maddie. She was 12 years old. You can see pictures of Maddie in the photos section.
I got my first cat in June 2005. I never thought I would own a cat, but Frio is very special. I had tried adopting a kitten, but I was not yet 21. I looked in the paper, but there were no kittens. After days of searching, I remembered a pond store that sold kittens. A friend and I went there and there were three tiny kittens to choose from: a taby, a grey cat, and a calico. After just a couple minutes, I chose the calico because I liked the colors. What a great decision! Many people who have owned several cats have said that Frio is the most loving cat they have ever seen and have said that she is "not a normal cat." She knows her name and comes when you call her, does not like being alone, loves being with the people she loves, and likes to play rough. She will meow at a door when she wants in and is always ready to curl up in a ball on your lap and purr. You can see pictures of Frio in the photos section.
