Remorse

I have been wanting a new TV for some time now. We have two in the house, and both work just fine. But one of them is really old. They both work, but are not fancy or HD or anything. So I was hoping to buy a flat panel LCD TV this holiday season. I figure with the economy in the tank and the retailers afraid no one will be shopping this year, then maybe they will have some good deals on a TV.

Ninsi and I went to Fry's last night to just look at some. Fry's has a fairly large selection, and I figured we could decide on what we wanted, and just wait a few days to actually buy it.

It didn't work out quite that. I found the one I wanted, and after conversing with Reptile who was checking prices at home for me, I decided that I just had to get it right then.

So, now Ninsi and I own a new Samsung LCD TV. It is still at Fry's though. Remember, I had not planned on buying a TV, so I had not made any arrangements to get a TV from the store back to the house. I'll be taking care of that immediately this afternoon.

Of course, they were out of stock of the TV stand we wanted. So we don't have anywhere to put the new TV yet. So it may have to wait another week or so before I can get time to hook everything up. I dont want to put it on the current stand and then take everything apart when I get a new stand next week. But it is a pretty TV, so I will be getting it out of the box tonight.

I was expecting to feel some buyer's remorse after spending so much on a TV. But really, all I want to do is get it all hooked up and watch some HD programming.

I may have to buy a PS3 just so I can play some HD games on it. mmmmm, HD...
