Well I decided to buy myself a Christmas present this year- took advantage of Cyber Monday and am now the proud (but poor) owner of a new 47 inch flat screen tv- YIKES. It was $400 off and I bought it through Dell so it's something I will pay off monthly and if I can pay it off within a year they won't charge any interest. I do feel a bit guilty that my old set is still working fine but it's also over 10 years old. Hoping I can find a place to donate it rather than just recycling. Now let's see if comcast will make this easy.

Ho Ho Ho Smile

Congratulations, Mary Ann! That's the same size TV that Roger won at his work's picnic last year, and we're loving it! Our biggest problem was finding something to put it on! The TV was free, but a new entertainment center to fit it in was $200+. LOL

47 Inches? Nice! Congrats on a great buy, Mary Ann! Smile

Ours is "only" 37 inches, but it's enough for the relatively small living room. Wink

Well everyone is teasing me because the plan is to put it in my bedroom but hey I pretty much live in there- I mean my COMPUTER is in there!
I checked around and given that there is about 9 ft or so between where I would be laying back on my bed and where the tv is now which is NOT a flat screen, I should be able to get away with it. If its totally too big, I can always put it in the livingroom right Smile

CONGRATS, MARY ANN !!!
I really happy for you, yes you deserve it.
You are going to watch the movies in extra + conditions !!! SO GREAT


Me too, I've done to myself a Christmas's gift : a Netbook (around 435$) but I'll be able to be connected everytime I want, even at night to chat with you all. But don't worry I save money for CA 2010.

Congrats on the netbook, Cécile! Smile

Me, I wouldn't buy one for myself because the display is too small for my needs. If I could I'd buy me a laptop or new computer with a big monitor/display because it's better doing graphics this way. Smile
