I have finally found my true love.
And her name is Samsung.
See that beauty? She's a sensual, tender being. And I've been spending a lot of time with her. Too much time, actually. You could say I'm whipped.
I've wanted one of these for years, and with a little Christmas help, I finally went out and bought one. She's a 42-inch plasma. And to keep her company, I purchased a Blu-Ray DVD player. My first Blu-Ray movie? L.A. Confidential. It looked amazing.
For the past few nights, I've played 24 on my new toy. I'm used to watching my favorite show on a small TV screen, so to see it in large HD format is a delight.
It's been a busy week for me, and I'm not used to busy weeks. First, I bought this TV and the TV stand upon which she rests. Then I put it all together. Then I waited in line for almost an hour to retrieve the HD cable box. Meanwhile, CBSSports.com is moving out of its old office this week. We move Wednesday. We took semi-mandatory classes on how to use the new phones. I've done my self and peer evaluations. The temperature in Florida has hit the 30s and the state is in panic mode.
I even watched the first half of that abomination in Foxborough. My first HD football event. The images looked great. The Patriots ... that's another story.
It's safe to say I won't be leaving the apartment for the next few months other than to eat, work and yell at kids for playing on my lawn. What reason do I have to venture out into the dangerous sun light?
I've found The One.
