Home Theater Movie Night – The Cure For Mid-Winter Cabin Fever

Posted by Tom Hannaher , Monday, January 25, 2010
Winter in New England is often synonymous with isolation and cabin fever. I write this as a sit in my home on a Monday morning, avoiding going into the office because it is snowing outside and we just watched a police car go by our house traveling in a manner that is best described as “sideways.” With weather like this it’s really tempting to just hunker down and stay inside, by ourselves, until maybe April.

But I’ve reached a point in my life where I KNOW that isolation is not good for me. I don’t belong to a church. I don’t enjoy going out to watch sporting events. And since I stopped drinking, I don’t go hang out with people in bars.

So I have a suggestion. For myself, and for you. Invite two or more friends over to your house to watch a movie. Make some popcorn or order takeout. Or maybe even make a big pot of chili. Try to pick a movie that will get people talking. I’m doing it this upcoming Friday night at 7PM. The Big Lebowski. It’s going to be fun. Everybody will get in a “Dude” frame of mind and say “shut the f*ck up Donny.” I’ve already got a great HDTV and a ZVOX home theater system, so all it will cost me the $9.99 I paid for the Anniversary Edition DVD of the movie and about $20 for chili materials, corn chips and soda. And it will be a little easier to make it to April.
