Welcome me to the 21st century!

Ya'll know how much I love me some TV. So you might wonder why I have a TV like this....

Check out the depth on this bad boy.

In case this makes you want to go out right this minute and hunt one of these down, it's a Zenith.

Well, this TV was my Granny's and when she died 6 years ago, she wanted to make sure I got this TV because I was the only grandchild that didn't have a big screen. So even though this TV didn't have the best picture, I vowed to use it until it was no mo'. I had a feeling about a month ago that it was climbing into its death bed so I went ahead and started doing a little bit of TV window shopping. Fast forward about 5 weeks later and this happened.....

So the next day, I went to get the TV I spotted last month. Unfortunately, they didn't have any in stock but they could deliver it to me on was only Tuesday. Thank God I had other TVs that could hold me over until then. Friday came and TA-DA!!

If you can't tell, I like to use Tippy to demonstrate how big things are in real life. Or I could just tell you that I got a 50" Panasonic Viera 1080p Plasma HDTV. As for the TV stand, that's actually just my coffee table that I pushed up against the wall. I was going to search for an old buffet on Craigslist that I could fix up but I think I like my coffee table as a TV stand. I've been wanting to get a new coffee table anyway because this one is a bit too traditional for my taste. But I'm thinking about painting it a bright color so that it doesn't look so traditional. The shelf below is perfect for my cable box and DVD player. I'll keep you updated if I decide to paint it.

As exciting as a new TV can be, I gotta say that I was pretty sad to get rid of the old TV for obvious reasons. This was the last gift that my Granny ever gave to me and I can't say that I didn't shed a few tears to see it go out. At least I have the new and improved vanity of hers that my dad fixed up for me!

**Shout out to Stephen for helping me find this TV at an awesome price**
