Today my wife and I went to Circuit City so I could buy a new flash drive and while we were there she looked at the HDTVs. We had talked about buying one at some point but it was the last thing on my mind when we went in the store. Well, on the way home she said she would like to go ahead and buy one so I measured the opening in our built in entertainment center and we trucked on back to Circuit City.

We bought a 32" Sony because it will fit in the cabinet and made arrangements for their Firedog team to come to the house to survey it for installing a surround sound system. I don't know how many times I have installed entertainment systems in our houses but this time I refused to do it. I'm old and don't want to crawl around in the attic routing wires and what not. I'll bet dollars to donuts that I will wind up doing the installation though because the Firedog guys are going to take one look at our house and present some jack leg proposal that will leave holes in our walls or moulding.

I sure hope the new TV and surround sound system turns out good because this is the first time in 41 years she decided to do something like this and I don't want her disappointed.
