So the old TV starts sputtering and throwing
more sparks than usual, and I finally have an
excuse to get a bigger, better, more manly set.
And after getting it home, and getting the neighbor
to help carry it in, and getting enrolled in the
engineering course it will take to learn how to
work the remote control, I find that the only thing
on TV these days is reality shows and you-leave-the-
shows. (which is really just another reality show with
the end result being that someone has to live with
purple walls when it's over)

Well, at least I can watch Sponge Bob with the kid. The
Bob should be about a foot tall on this set, and he
should be a bright yellow, not the orange tint that
the old TV would render anything that wasn't blue.
