A very Merry Christmas indeed

Lately, work and life craziness have squashed all non-essential blogging; however, the newest addition to the LaBau household has inspired me to put on my blogging pants once more.

For Christmas this year, Jason & I decided to get ourselves a new TV/entertainment system. If you have had the "pleasure" of watching TV at our house, you will know that this investment is SORELY needed. Allow me to introduce our old TV:

That's right. An analog TV. Straight antenna system, no cable to be had. A sad off-brand DVD/VCR player that barely plays VHS tapes and is currently holding a DVD hostage and won't open at all. (We have vowed to attack it with a screwdriver once we get the new system fully functioning.)

But now...drumroll please...

A shiny new plasma TV! Not pictured: the new DVD/VHS player, and the DirecTV DVR system we're getting set up early next week.

People, this is going to be good. If we drop off the face of the earth, rest assured that we are probably 72 hours into a week-long Law & Order marathon, our pajamas glued to the couch with a mixture of popcorn butter and drool, our bleary faces basking in the sweet glow of a fully-functioning television.

[P.S. Apologies for the blatant consumerist nonsense. I promise to blog about needy orphans for the rest of the month.]
