Reasonable Facsimile

Well, jingle my bell and color me surprised!!!

Santa came early tonight and got this set up in the living room in time to catch tonight's Capitals vs. Islanders game in HD. Okay, so it's not the 46" model, but the 42" Sony Bravia fits perfectly into our smallish living room. I didn't know what I was missing. Honestly, I didn't. To see Ovechkin (the great 8) wiggling his fingers at the other Caps, waving them in for a group hug to celebrate his overtime goal that won the game...well, I had a tear in my eye.

Forget it, ladies (and gentlemen)! My husband is off the market, no matter how "resonable" your offer! He's a keeper. Wow!

Peace - D

RP...if you move the bed, the microwave, the refrigerator and the beer keg in there with the flatscreen...you'll never have to leave the room except to use the loo.

Marty said...

Someday I would like to get one of those.

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Could do with one myself. Think eventually we will all have to own one!

Daryl said...

Mine is talking 42 inches .. we have a 36 right now that is barely 2 yrs old ... but he says he will give that to my sister (who has been unemployed for a while) ... she isnt about to buy one for herself.

Enjoy it .. and enjoy laughing at those actors/talkiing heads et al who dont have a make up dept equipped for high def..

Ooooh hoooo! Hubbie is going to be jealous!! Congrats that you were such a good girl this year!

SandyCarlson said...

What a generous gift! Enjoy it!

RiverPoet said...

MPM - Seriously! :-)

Brit - Thanks! I LOVE IT!!!

Maggie - I wish you could come over for some TV and knitting! (Yes, I've taught myself!)

WM/Mark - Yeah, buddy! Well, minus the beer keg. Can't drink anymore!

Marty - I'll ask Santa to bring you one!

CJ - I'm sure you're right. I think more and more of the programming is designed for HD, because I can't believe the difference. It's like I just got glasses or something.

Moannie - I'll get it popping. Come on over!

Daryl - Interestingly enough, after the hockey game, we watched the finale of Biggest Loser. Talk about some people that didn't want to be on TV in high-def!

NATUI - You'll have to come over and watch a game!

SandyC - Thanks! Yes, it is a very generous gift.

Peace - D

Jo said...

Wow! I'm impressed! Yes, I think he is a keeper.

I like Mark's idea (the Walking Man).

I haven't had time to do much blogging lately, but I hope you and your family have a wonderful Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

Know what's better on big screen HD than Ovie? Crosby. True fact. ;-)

San said...

Both are clearly keepers--the TV and the spouse!

What a nice gift.. I hope you enjoy it for a long time to come. :)
