Last night we bought our new TV online

I am so excited!

We bought a Samsung 55" 3D LED LCD Smart TV...it is brilliant

We could have got it at Harvey Norman on sale at $1,898 but found it online for $1,676 and free delivery. They did not have any left in the Adelaide warehouse so we are getting it shipped from the Victorian warehouse, it will be delivered next Wednesday...one week to go

It is massive!

Most of the morning I have been moving TV cabinets around...I have moved the older one as it is too small for the size of our new TV and I have put another one we had which is the exact size...the new TV will "just" fit on it, but it is a lovely TV cabinet so we may not buy a new one since the TV does fit on it

I have cleaned up the other cabinet we were using and we are giving that to mum, along with our current TV, so that she can have it all set up in her bedroom

So I am been doing heaps of rearranging and dusting and the bigger cabinet looks great there, now just waiting for the new TV

Just had a lovely hot shower...so needed it after all that work I have just done and now off to do the grocery shopping

We have a 55" Samsung, not all the bells and whistles as it's a couple years old, but you will love it, Kylie!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but do you know that those TVs can spy on you?

I refuse to get anything from Samsung at the moment.

I was looking at a Samsung cell phone today...mad at my favorite telephone company once again (once again, the landline in the City was disconnected because I haven't paid the bill for the farm--which was disconnected on June 21st and the bill was paid in full on the 30th of June...............those are my footprints as I stomp my feet, run in circles, scream and shout)! The farm should no longer have a phone bill, but for some reason, the idiots continue to bill me for it (or credit the wrong #)--I ordered it disconnected in APRIL and picked the date in June--but, since I haven't supposedly paid the bill, once again, my line in the City is cut off because I opted for one bill for both lines!!!!!!! And, of course, I can't call and B*tch because I can't call the phone company which shall remain nameless. I'm so frigging sick of this.

Back to the Samsung phone....I've had this brand of cell phone in the past so I thought maybe I'd go with a prepaid cell...glad I didn't buy it! Need to do more research on plans and coverage in the technological black hole in which I live. I'm going to the farm in the morning so I can use my prepaid US cell phone to call and B*tch.

Thanks DL...I am really looking forward to it as we have had an 80cm one now for a few years, so to jump from that to a 140cm...I am thrilled

Taxy, our model doesn't come with the built in camera...so I guess we are safe

Getting ready to check Shrek's scar..oh yea! That's the exciting thing tonight.

I was successful in beating the migraine last night, just a dull roar today, but nothing blinding...despite the 8 hours on the computer today. Just still a bit nauseated.
