Blonde moment

And the silver spoon.

A useful skill I picked up in college…

One of my bad deployment habits is sleeping with the TV on. I picked this up in college when my roommates were away for weekends at their various pursuits. Something I learned, however, was how to take apart a TV and VCR to retrieve tapes. So, my bedroom TV has been giving me grief for a few months now… therefore, I elected to take the TV apart tonight. Sure enough there are tons of spider webs on the inside and some screwed up springs. Not that I know what the springs do or anything, but they’re broken. (Side note to men who think that I *wouldn’t* take apart a TV, and be smart enough to insure that I didn’t snap the wires that connect the screen to the whats-it-called, I didn’t pull the screen that far apart to do any damage personally.)

So, one needs to go find a small bedroom TV tomorrow… and deposit the current issue in the pile of electronic things for Josh to recycle when he gets home. I know better then to get rid of electronic things myself…

Yup, I took apart the TV, saw that the innards were broken, and decided not to fix it.

The things women do when their husbands are not at home to supervise…

    So this is why she now has a new flat screen, LCD TV/DVD combo in our room. That little TV survived eight years, five or six moves, to bad the VCR didnt. Oh Well, I get a new toy out of the deal!
