Weekend Projects

Welcome to my first interactive blog poll. Trying to figure out the best way to arrange things. Three options are below. Cast your votes now. Be advised that I reserve the right to over-rule the public's decision based on personal preference and logistics such as tv cables and electric outlets.

Option 1:









Option 2:












Option 3:












Now onto the weekend musings...

Spent a majority of the weekend shopping for a tele. The shopping excursions were quite eye opening. I headed down to Reading to visit Costco on Saturday afternoon. Note to self- in the future do not attempt to take a train that goes through Twickenham when a Ruby game is scheduled, the train is mobbed but only for 1 stop. Believe it or not Costco looked just like every other Costco I've been in. I checked out the tele's the one I wanted was about 550p but I would need to either rent a car or pay a delivery service which would take the price to over 600. I figured it would roughly be the same at an electronics store in the long run. I was shocked when I went to Curry's and the same tele was 250 more. Further research today and in speaking with my co-workers I confirmed that the store was a rip off and that I could get it on-line for much less, even at Curry's. The TV arrives on Wednesday! I splurged and got the 32" Samsung.

This evening I attempted to set up my new broadband connection and phone. After a few obstacles I got the broadband connection set up. The phone was another story. Unfortunately they need to send a technician out to my house and they can't do that until the end of the month! The only good news is I get my broadband connection for free until they can send the technician out.

First I cannot believe that you have rearranged your furniture so that we can vote. I guess not having a TV has affected your brain. By the way, I like the TV I hit the link and saw it. The nearest I can figure out, Option 3 looks good. I did not like a infront of the window.

Well with the broadband it'll be almost just like having a phone. I like option #2. Put the tele under the stairs, get a nice little chair, put some silk flowers and candles in the fireplace (you can't use it can you?), and turn the table the other way in the dining room, and you might be able to put a small office space on the other wall in the dining room.
I have other constructive decorating suggestions, but I've run out of space in the box.

Also, you need some friends over there so you can spend your days doing more interesting things than photographing the furniture! :P
