While I was sleeping

It's been a while since I've been TV shopping. Our last tv was inherited from a friend leaving the country for better/brighter voltage and our second tv was a one ton box. So, it was time... plasma, lcd, led, hd, 3d... what? 3D?? When did this happen? Wasn't it just a couple of weeks ago when these were on display at one of those 'Science of the future' exhibs?
Not only is 3D here, but there's a dedicated sky 3D channel. If you can't appreciate my shock, you should know that our household still hadn't taken the step to HD. But this 3D thing? I wanted one!!!

"Certainly not," says hubby. "The kids watch way too much tv as it is. No ways are we all going to be sitting behind glasses in our own little worlds all night long."

No problem. I shoved a pair of 3D glasses on his face and forced him to watch 5 mins of Avatar in 3D

"Oh, okay," he says, "maybe we need to investigate this a little more."

And off we went to the next shop.

"What? Plasma?" gulps the shop assistant. "But what about the burn-in?"

"Burn-in?" I frown suspiciously. "Isn't that, like, last century's problem?"

Apparently not. So we came home with a very ordinary, rather large, HD tv, but listen up 3D tv, I know your're out there, you can't hide from me, one day soon...


  1. Oh no! Now I'm even more afraid of what will happen when our old...old...old TV (as in 16 year old) gives up the ghost. I can't keep up with all of this...

  2. Judy, you may still have time to get that electronics degree before you attempt it
