I have a feeling I've read this someplace before.

Um. Did you just call me insensitive?

funny enough, I went to buy a new TV yesterday. it had to be a color TV, it had to have the slot for a regular antenna, and ideally I could carry it home. so I picked up the LCD/flat panel model in my price range that met those requirements. total time in store: 9 minutes.

This is the advantage to having Alzheimer's: everything under the sun is new. Again.
Joke, I'd search eBay. I bet you find exactly what you want. Or is this the eBay'd non-region encoded player we both bought in that dutch auction? Which would mean mine is about to die.

Jujube: It's like being RIGHT there, innit?
Badge: Why would you think that?
Poppy: Start leaving candles and flowers and photographs around said DVD player, and, if possible, stay up all night looking at it.

well, it's kind of teeny since I don't want a huge TV since I don't watch a lot at home (and on the weekends I have Mr D ginNORmous TV to watch). so it's like kinda being there.
(verification word: dikwwiih. I'll leave it at that)

sometimes I just stand over here and not say anything.
I think that's what I'll do today.

Hey, no fair. You deleted the duplicate post.
I take back all my remarks about Alzheimer's, etc.
If you need me, I'll be over there with Blackbird, saying nothing.

You sound like my husband talking about work! He speaks his computer language to me.
It may as well be Mandarin for all I get out of it.

We'll see your Hackabilly and raise your pixels, Mistah.
I read this to my K, and he said "Well, yes....? " But he is distracted and working on our taxes, so More He Could Not Say.
This is what I tell my Girlfriends who are totally appalled at the amount of electronic stuff in our media room, or his power tool collection in the shop:
"The Man Works Hard."
"And all this Stuff Is WAY Cheaper Than a Mistress."
I think you have a very smart wife who thinks this way as well.

I'm over in the corner with Poppy and Blackbird. We're having tea. It's very low tech, and yet, fun!
Happy Maunday Thursday, yins!

I'll take it on faith this is all cheaper than a mistress, as my beloved wife has some proficiency with firearms and I am not in the mood to give her yet more reason to just SNAP.

I completely empathise with the lost post pissed-offedness.
The rest appears to be written in Vulcan.

HA HA, Joke! Good for you for living a reasonable life.
Reminds me of my GF Kelly, who is now 84 years old. She has dreams of going to meet her Maker in this fashion: "Shot in the Heart by a Jealous Wife."
I told her, "Nah, Kelly; the spurned woman always shoots the philanderer. And frequently below the belt."
Glad to see you are a firm believer in this statistic as well.

Those who know my beloved can attest to the fact that, when driven to wrath, it is impossible to confuse her with a rainbow.
Those who know me will attest to teh fact I have spent HOUR UPON BLOODY HOUR on the Internet looking for the ideal DVD player. I have found THREE that almost do everything. One is discontinued, another costs almost $2K and the third is backordered until Judgment Day, at the earliest.
Oh, and none of the three do EVERYTHING I need it to do.
