The Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh Away

So, tonight was the night. I became one of the blessed. I went big and got the 42" Panasonic plasma TV. It's almost like the one Ben K. has. Aren't you excited Anne Marie? Isn't that TV too big for that stand? It seems so. Does it matter? Nope. Thanks goes out to Dad, Mike, the CSI: Miami writers, three grandmothers, one grandfather, and Anne Marie who helped make this financially possible. Thanks also to my Mom who gave birth to me three days after Christmas. This has helped with Christmas and birthday money coming at the same time. Finally big thanks to Jen who drove me in her SUV to pick it up and even helped me carry it up one flight of stairs, and to Megan who helped me put the plasma on its stand. That should be everybody.Unfortunately, it is not all good news in this Iten's home. The first thing I did after setup is fire up the old 360. I had to see Gears of War in glorious HD. Well, it froze on me. So, I restarted. Then I got this:I can't believe I got the red ring of death! The Red Ring of Death! Suck.

Ouch. But the TV looks really good? How is OTA?

Clarification for your readers: yours is nicer than mine...

Ahh, the red ring of death!!!

What does that mean...? New 360?

Bradford said...

OTA is solid, but I'm looking forward to the cable guy coming next week.

I think the problem with my 360 is the hard drive. I think there is a corrupted game file or something.

God doesn't want you to be playing video games.

I agree with Tim. However, despite the fact that I am completely bewildered by video games and the people who love them, I DO feel sympathy for you.

But Ben would like to point out that it is only MOSTLY a ring of death--see, it's not all the way connected--so there's still hope.

According to the picture, Bradford got so excited about his HD Plasma TeeVee that he turned on... the local news.
