The new TV arrived today and it is un-f*#@ing-believable. It's EXACTLY like being in a theater. It has lots of HD channels and it's all just SO cool!
The only bad/funny part was the two dudes who delivered it all and set it up. The smart one only had about four teeth so you couldn't understand half of what he said, and the dumb one was a grunter and talked constantly. He would move something small, like the DVD player (which is about a half an inch high and weighs about .0003 lbs) and grunt like an elephant in heat (OK, I'm making that up, I have NO idea if elephants in heat grunt...but I bet they do). It was totally ridiculous.
I also went Christmas shopping today. Not sure about my mom yet but my dad got a Weather Channel home weather station...all the junk outside the measures the weather is wireless and it all transmits into a receiver in the house that's all fancy and stuff. Considering that he would actually watch The Weather Channel twenty-four hours a day if my mom would let him, and his current outdoor thermometer is a crappy plastic dial (and he uses it every day to decide on his bike rides and stuff), I think he'll like it. Now I just have to figure out what to get my mom. I'm going to the mall on Sunday...God help me.
