We welcomed the new year by buying a new TV.  This is something I’ve avoided for years.  I was suckered into…I mean convinced…by my wife to get a bigger TV a few years ago since ours was all green on one side and the football players were impossible to see on the field.  Our sole qualification was bigger and functional, so we upgraded. Unfortunately, we did not have the foresight to put our money toward a flat screen.

Look, HD was still new the last time I gave in to buying a TV.

Still, she played on my desire not to have a TV at all by pushing the ‘flat is less’ philosophy.  It’s true.  I am thrilled that the new TV is so much less noticable.  I’m beyond thrilled.  It is the best thing that’s happened to me this year! Well, and if you’re going to watch TV, you might as well watch something crisp and clear.  And wow is it beautiful.

So yes, I’m joining the 20th century.  Pretty.

    Just put a nice, cool washcloth on your forehead and lie down. There, there, you’ll feel better soon.

    We got our first flat screen TV the other week, too. It’s only a small one, 19-inches, but it’s only for the breakfast room where we eat, not for major viewing. We aren’t really sure we like it that much, but it may be because it was the least expensive one we could find. When it comes time for the purchase of a new “major viewing” TV for the living room, we may have to put up some big bucks and go with a Sony or something like that. But for the breakfast room, the little black flat Insignia will have to do.
