Bigger is better


As most of you know, one of my defining characteristics is the time and effort that I put into making a big purchase. Next to my James Bond-like ability to seduce women, it's probably my most telling feature. In fact, if you see a man at Best Buy spending two hours taking notes on big-screen TV's, who then convinces the salesgirl at the camera counter to blow him behind the X-Box display..... it's me.

Today I made a huge purchase, a Samsung HL-R6178. Basically, it's a HDTV the size of a life raft. I did my normal amount of extensive research before finally just buying the thing because it was a great deal. It's a little larger than we need but I'm sure the picture will look great if we sit in the neighbors yard and watch it through the window.

It should be delivered early next week, just in time for my return from Houston where I hope to win enough at poker to pay for the damn thing. If I lose at poker and return home to a TV that I paid way too much for, the depression will be crushing.

Why would you think anybody would care about purchases that you can't afford?

Anonymous must care because he/she continues to read your blog.

Ahh, anonymous, you old scamp you. The bigger question is, "Why would you think anybody would care what you say in the comment section?"

It's obvious to me that you aren't a regular reader of my blog because if you were you would know that I didn't write this post to talk about my new TV. I'm not that full of myself. No, this post is just an excuse to Photoshop my picture into the thumbnail of the TV. Look at me! I'm dead sexy! (Bobbi looks good too)
