I doubt it will shock anyone to hear that I am already thinking about Christmas. I like to have a plan, what can I say? This year Mr. E and I are going to join the technological age and buy ourselves a giant flat screen tv for Christmas, because we are just that fricking romantic. We already have a tv, but we bought it right before flat screen tvs actually got cheap enough afford, and it’s a large large beast of a thing. I don’t particularly want or need a giant television, but I do want my living room to look cute, and a television the size of Texas is harshing my decorating buzz. Plus if I buy a new tv I also get to buy a cute new tv stand which makes it just the gift that keeps on giving. Obviously. You can’t put a tv that weighs 800 pounds and is the size of Texas on a cute tv stand. Everyone knows that.
Anyway. According to my lovely husband, the bare minimum giant television that he can stomach watching fourteen hours of the Simpsons on is a 37 inch television. Aside from brands that no one has ever heard of because they’re made of rubber bands and used chewing gum in some factory in darkest Peru, I have found a giant flat screen television from Walmart (blargh) for $330 dollars. But the thing is, I don’t know anything about buying giant televisions. I am not a dude, so I am not the person who wants to spend my Saturdays in Best Buy comparing giant televisions and talking about pixels, or whatever, either. So my question to you guys is – should I wait to buy this giant tv? Should I try to buy on Black Friday? (barf). Is there some crazy tech web site I should be trolling on a daily basis that’s going to have some great deal on a giant tv? If I wanted a great deal on a giant tv, which I do, where should I look?
Thank you for your help, my assimilation to a regular old giant television consumerist American owes you one.
