TV woes

Our bedroom tv is not working. It's an older model, and we had to kluge a way to get input from the new DVD player (the one that will play discs burned from the computer so we can watch Doctor Whos) and it finally broke and we get no visual input at all. We have been expecting this, and it's not really repairable, and also a new 14" set is relatively inexpensive.

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.


Or make Amazon do it for you! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0001KUD8I/sr=1-10/qid=1152887936/ref=sr_1_10/103-2392338-9087001?ie=UTF8&s=audio-video

These days I check Amazon first for freaking everything. I just killed my all-purpose sauce pan and replaced it with actual Calphalon for *twenty-five bucks,* which is about ten more than I paid for the original tinfoil and enamel pot from Target. I ♥ Amazon, man.

There's still the carrying the thing upstairs (Like Luka, I live on the second floor of a walkup.) And the wanting it asap because, honestly? Bedroom is the primary tv watching place. We have to remember we have a set in the living room because we didn't until we moved to this apartment.

I ordered my last television from Best Buy online. They carried it in for me. It was a 25" set, so it was bigger, but it was massively worth it. They also took the box away for me.
