On Monday, Jen wanted to watch "Chariots of Fire." Ordinarily, wanting a DVD would involve a trip to the library, but it was closed for Washington's birthday. So, for the first time in a long time, we went to a video rental store. After discovering that what had once been our usual store had closed, we found one still in business.

Renting two old DVDs was cheaper than renting one new release, so we rented "Chariots" and another Oscar-winning film, "The Paper Chase", for less than it would have cost to rent "All About Steve."

(This strategy has its risks.)
