So we bought a new TV today. A 60" Samsung something or other. The resolution is gorgeous. We're watching How To Train Your Dragon to break it in. It's GORGEOUS. Big Hero 6 is up next.

It was just a warm-up, though, because we're buying a new car tomorrow. Pretty much settled on what we (and by we I mean *I*) want, but instead of trading in the car, my sister wants it. It's really died, it needs over $2k of work, and I don't want to give her a car that's unsafe, because I know she can't afford to fix it and I don't want her driving it unless it gets fixed.


I'm gonna take it to a shop tomorrow, see if they can give me an estimate on fixing it, and then figure out how to get to the dealer - who is half an hour north of here. At worst I can take a taxi, but that'd be pretty spendy. Arg.

I think ours is the same tv! Isn't it just drool worthy?! Do you have a BluRay player? Because it's so worth it!

Good luck with the car.

Ooooh! My husband would be so jealous that it has 3D capability. Ours is a couple of years old.

Ooooooh - fancy tv! How to Train Your Dragon!!!
(Sidenote: we just watched the sequel last week and my 2year old went absolutely nuts. She ran into her room and grabbed her Toothless stuffy and ran around the room with him for about 2 hours while the movie was on. :P I didn't expect to cry, but... yeah I love the series and should probably check out the books at some point) Enjoy the new tv!

Good luck with the car shopping/inspection! Hopefully this is that crazy universe where the mechanic actually gives you a lower estimate than you expected for the repair of your current car!
