The problem is getting it, since we are carfree. The plan (overly ambitious for Friday) was to go to Circuit City (30 minute train ride), buy a tv and take a car service home (40 minutes, depending on traffic and the time the cab takes to get there, plus the time to choose the set and possibly a shelf unit to contain it, the vcr, the cable box and the vcr) and then taking the set upstairs and installing it, and then Jonathan goes to work (or I go home alone and Jonathan goes to work, and I pay the cabby to take the set into the foyer, to be taken upstairs Saturday night.)
I don't see the need. We can just as easily go on Sunday with no time constraints. We have a tv set and a vcr in the living room so I can tape the new SG-1 and SGA episodes and watch them there, and what more do we need until then? Jonathan has accepted my wisdom.
