New toy

Well it’s been a while since I posted. Been busy with remotes and Grandma in the hospital and all. I’m feeling pretty drained.

So maybe it was just feeling like I need to reward myself or something, I dunno. But at some point we’re all allowed to make ridiculous purchases right?

So we bought a 47 inch LCD HDTV.

The picture doesn’t really do justice to how ridiculiously big this TV is in such a small room.  Ha ha.  But I figure my next place is hopefully a little bigger, and I plan on this TV lasting a while.  I payed a little bit extra to make sure it was full HD 1080p.  So it shouldn’t be obsolete in the immediate future.  We had to get HDMI cables for our cable box and the DVD player that Andrea picked up today to get the digital picture.  And we had to get the HD package from the cable company.  But it looks great if you ask me.

On the other hand, regular TV looks kinda gross now.  You ever take a small picture and stretch it out on your computer screen?  Know how it gets all blurry?  Yeah.  Even PS2 games look pretty antiquated when blown up this big.  We debated getting a PS3 or Xbox 360, but I think we’re going to hold off on those for a while.

So I have two 27″ TV’s laying around now.  haha.  One Stooks gave me a while back and if he has a use for it, he can sure have it back whenever.  If not I have two TVs that I’m willing to GIVE away.  You…someone you know…want a TV?  Come get it or catch me on a trip close to you, and its yours.

I’m pretty excited though.  I’ve had a nice sound system for a while now, and always said I just don’t have the TV to go with it.  Now I do.  I see no need to buy a movie ticket ever again.
