Last week’s poll asked if you were still wearing watches or you had caught up with 2012 and dropped them like the useless pieces of jewelry they are. Unbelievably, only a small majority of respondents don’t wear watches and quite a few people still hold on to an outdated and unnecessary custom of telling time. Few people tell time by the sun, why are you still doing something that is outdated? Weirdos ;-)
This week’s poll comes as I impatiently await Black Friday fliers for the various stores getting their holiday inventory ready for the season. We bought new TVs back in 2004 just as flat screens were becoming prolific and CRTs were at near fire sale prices. Because of that, the fact that we just don’t watch all that much TV to begin with, and price, we have resisted upgrading to something newer. However, with prices for TVs the size which will work best in our living room dropping to ~$200, I am in the market for one and I’m willing to sit outside for hours to pay that price to get something bigger than I believe $200 will fetch on any other day.
While we mostly just watch Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon streaming video and I don’t much care if they’re in HD or not which could cause problems on a larger screen, I do enjoy watching football in HD. The Wife, not being a football fan, sees no benefit to this at all and looks at me with The Eye when I bring it up. Bleh.
What about you? What kind of TV do you have? When did you upgrade? Do you plan to upgrade to flat screens soon now that the prices are so low? Any reasons other than football and movies I can convince The Wife with (electricity costs to help appease the Budget Nazi still alive and well inside of her?) Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below as I’d love to hear what you have to say.
