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.
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.
