Another TV nippin’ at the dust

Although I don’t get around to it as often as I like to, I’m a fan of television watching. Sometimes, especially when my oldest daughter is home lounging, I can spend an entire weekend day watching reality television, series of Criminal Minds or CSI, Disney channel sitcoms or Lifetime movies. I just like the television to be there and available when I’m ready to watch it.

Once again, the set in my house is trying to die. In fact, it was in a zone of complete grayness for about 24 hours ‘til it decided to kick back in. I think it was a revolt against my knocking against the side of it and getting it to kick back in.

I don’t relish in the fact of shopping for a new one. The truth of the matter is there isn’t any money for a television. Not a used one, which is what I normally have (except for that television I had more than 10 years that my best friend bought for me) and there’s definitely aren’t funds for a new one.

Ahhh … new televisions. When I see the fancy LCD HDTVs I’m amazed and lusting! I can’t wait until buying a television won’t seem like frivolous act. For now, we’ll keep hoping the old TV we have will keep on ticking and, if it doesn’t, we’ll squint (said dramatically) at my laptop.
