When Gord and I got married in 2002, we both had big old TVs that were cool in their day.
We put one in the living room ...
The other went in the spare room. We thought they were good enough for now and said we'd buy a flat screen TV when one of these died.
As a head's up ... THEY DON'T DIE!
We gave in and bought a 46 inch flat screen TV in June 2011 for the living room and moved the old TV that was there into the bedroom (it's not even plugged in).
It was amazing and we couldn't believe we had waited so long!
Monday nights Gord and I have a conflict. The second hour of Biggest Loser is on when Dallas (which Gord watches) is on. I watch the first half of Biggest Loser in the living room on the cool TV and then head to the spare room to watch the second half on the old TV because Gord cares more about Dallas than I do about Biggest Loser.
Wow! It's like going back in time. The picture quality is so different and things get cut off from the sides. It would be nice to get rid of the older TVs and replace the one in the spare room with a small flat screen ... it's amazing how cheap they are.
My dilemma ... we don't watch a lot of TV in the spare room, though, so why spend the money?
Also, what do we do with the big ole TVs? Apparently you can't even donate them. We'd have to haul them out to the garbage bin instead ... it's a shame to throw them out just because they aren't cool anymore.
What do we do?
