The new TV

So, this weekend's excitement was the new TV's arrival. Dad agreed to purchase it for us on a short term loan. Once the refund arrives, it'll get kicked over to Dad.

And since he was nice enough to help transport the I guess we'll have to let him watch it.

Anyway, here's the "old"setup.

And here's the "new" setup.

* Apologies for the poor photos. The first is Elizabeth's and the second is from my phone. But hey, I did the best I could. Both entertainment centers are roughly the same size. It's just the TV that's changed.

** Paul, the Wii is awesome on here. Played Order of the Phoenix last night and it was almost like being inside the movie. I think if I can get an HDMI cable for it, it might even be better.

Setup looks good. Plenty of room for swinging that, Wii remote around. :P

Yeah, I'll try to get a better picture this week, but it is nice to be able to see everything.

The new t.v looks great. I'm not going to tell Jared about it. He thinks we need a bigger tv everytime we go to an electronic store. :)

1979 - It IS awesome. Gets a little warm, but was GREAT to watch Jericho last night.

Melissa - Yvonne didn't say anything about NOT getting it. In fact, when I mentioned it, she just went along with the idea. I may "pay for it" later with something she wants to do, but I've been doing my best to support her latest hobby of making jewelry.

yeah, ours gets warm too. it's a little creepy but so far hasn't caused any problems. it does seem to be a bit of a drain on our energy bill though...which makes sense but it never occured to me at the time.
