TVs and Stuff

Does my sister even write in this thing? What a slacker.

Jeremy is online shopping for a flat screen TV...YES! I realized the other day how stupid it is that I even want a flat screen TV. First thing, we already have two. We have one in our bedroom, and one in the downstairs room. Second, I don't watch TV. I haven't watched television for 17 months. My kids have it on, so I may watch bits and pieces of whatever they are watching, but my attention span doesn't last longer than a few minutes. Sometimes I will watch a movie with the kids. I used to be addicted to a dozen or so shows (Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, etc...), but one day the segment of my brain that processes the images on the screen turned to mush. I am still hoping this process reverses itself, so I have 3,000 hours of DVR'd shows that I "plan" on watching someday.

Anyway, the reason I want a flat screen for the living room is this: There is a perfect spot for one over my fireplace, and the TV currently in the living room is blocking a window. So my primary motive is to balance out my living room. Ironically, I could accomplish the same thing by trashing the current TV and putting a painting over the fireplace.

Did you know in addition to sale's tax, California charges $10 "Electronic Waste Recycle Fee" when you buy a TV? Fuck California.

Oops, sorry for the cussing Jo.

By the way, I had a REALLY good lunch with Jodi and my parents today. We went to the Olive Garden, and it was so relaxing and fun. My mom actually drank wine (she is normally a Smirnoff Ice or Tom Collin's kinda gal), and my dad was extraordinarily patient with us (we started telling TMI stories). I found out my sister had an obscene experience with a horse.


  1. Great Shan, between your sailor's mouth and your crude reference to equines, I'm officially going to have to change the rating of this blog to 'M for mature.'

  2. Well maybe you should make it more wholesome with your posts...oh wait- I almost forgot, you haven't been writing ANY posts.


Thanks for your comment!
