NaBloPoMo Day Sixteen - My Gift to Julie

I am so honored that Swampwitch is hosting a big party for me and Julie! And I signed up, b/c she said I was allowed to "bring" something to the house-warming for Julie.

Now, I have seen Julie's furniture, and her camper - and I remember her quest for a television. She just wasn't sure what to pick. Well, I KNOW what to pick, b/c I picked one out for me, too! Presenting, the Samsung 50-inch plasma HDTV:
I did a lot of research on televisions: plasma vs. LCD, etc., and used Consumer Reports to help make my decision. This is one of the top-ranked models in the plasma category, and after seeing this baby in person, it has the CLEAREST picture out of all the televisions on display! You can walk around it, and still see from all angles. VERY important...in case some exciting football action is happening while you are walking by. Also, it features anti-burn-in protection. Oh, and in case you are thinking that I'm wasteful and a total "material girl," just know that this baby is ENERGY STAR compliant! HA!

So, if I could give Julie a big, fat house-warming gift - this is IT! (And I would be happy to come over and test it out, if she needs me!)

Sweet - I need to buy a new tv in a couple of years when everything goes digital. Maybe it will be in my price range by then.

Sirdar said...

I think I saw a 72"...or was it 70"...can't remember. But, it was at Best Buy last night. You probably don't want to know the price. LOTS!!

Junebug said...

Good choice!! Wait till you see your gift from me. I hope you like it.

karisma said...

A TV? NOw come on! My pressies were much more interesting. Did you convince the hubby about the giant shoe yet? I reckon we could have some real fun with that and WT's pressie. Now that could be fun, could it nor?

karisma said...

sorry NOT not NOR!

Robin said...

Wow....that's a GREAT gift!

I wonder had I seen other people's posts BEFORE I posted mine, if I would've gone a different route. Instead...pop over when you get a chance and see what I have for ya ;).

Matt-Man said...

Holy Cow...My collection of porn flicks would look great on that screen. Cheers!!

ang said...

Congrats! Tigger. I brought you and Julie something to enjoy while sitting in front of this t.v.

Tiggerlane said...

karmyn r - yeah, I was shocked at the prices. I think they will HAVE to come down - but then, they'll have something bigger and better by then.

sirdar - I'm not sure I even have a WALL that can handle a 72" tv! But I would love to try!

junebug - absolutely! Our expresso maker AND blender have recently exploded. Our house is revolting!

karisma - I LOVE your present! I just don't know if I can convince the hubby...but it's AWESOME!

robin - girl, you are making me all kinds of hungry. I can just TASTE that tiramasu! Must. Find. Ladyfingers.

matt-man - Can you imagine your furry friend on that big screen?

ang - those are PERFECT! My feet can be all cozied up, while I sip my wine. Those glasses are DA BOMB!

Pamela said...

ooooooo! Superbowl party at Tigs!!!!

Now at last Julie has room for something bigger than a wrist watch.

(I sure had fun shopping, and usually I hate shopping - but there was no elbow bumping on this trip)

Shauna said...

Wow! That's nice! ! ! Please visit me and see what I picked out for you! ! ! Hope you like it! ! !

Melissa said...

Yum. The perfect gift. We bought a Sharp Aquos two years ago. It is TV perfection.

Hey...where is the Grey's Chatroom?! ;)

Joy T. said...

Ohhh what a lovely gift!! We've been looking at a new TV and get a little overwhelmed with what's out there. I'm writing this one down.

Tiger Lamb Girl said...

Thanks for doing the research on this (for me, lol)! Now I don't have too!! We're looking for one just like this:).

Tiggerlane said...

pamela - all football fans are welcome! And virtual shopping is AWESOME!

shauna - I loved it! And glad to see you back in the thick of the blog world!

melissa - would you believe, I missed HALF of Grey's, due to a function at The Offspring's school?

joy t. - I would advise that you try the 42" version, b/c it has just enough tv, without the huge sticker price.

tiger lamb girl - all I have to say, is that Samsung is the official tv of the NFL!

Melissa said...

NO! You can watch it online, if withdrawls are happening. :)

swampy said...

Hey Tig...coming to you via a lap-top...as you know, my house is at this very moment, topsy-turvy. I don't even know where my computer but as soon as I reconnect with it, literally and figuratively, I will post your gift. It may be tomorrow, but I promise, you will have something from me.

Debs said...

Drool!

Tiggerlane said...

melissa - Yup, that's probably what I'll have to do. I caught bits and pieces, but it's just not the same!

swampy - totally understood! I feel SO sorry for you - but NOT for the skunk!

debs - I'm glad they make a special cleaner for these tvs, b/c I'm gonna do the same!

Sandy said...

I wonder if my husband has any clue how much envy a virtual party can spawn! Great gift.

mjd said...

Cool present, I just bought a Samsung HDTV for my husband's birthday. Ours is only 36". For the room that we watch television, 36" is very big; 50" would be ginormous.

BS said...

Great gift - your houses are going to look fantastic.

Jenny said...

Awesome! Now I'm off to Swampy's to see the rest of the cyber-gifts.

Happy housewarming, my friend!

dawn said...

That is a great gift anyone could enjoy; I know I would. Happy Housewarming.

Julie said...

Awww! Tif- this is perfect!! Thank you!

Kila said...

The perfect gift to settle in front of on a cold winter night!

I finally posted my gifts for you!

Tiggerlane said...

sandy - I'm in SHOCK at all the stuff - makes me wish we were all fabulously wealthy and could buy each other lots of gifts!

mjd - actually, we bought the 42" - I've had my eye on the 50", but Roger said that it was too big for the wall. But it's still BIG! Can't get it until the house is finished, tho!

bs - I can't wait to take photos of us living on the INSIDES!

jenny - thanks! I still haven't finished visiting the participants.

dawn - thank you - I think we all need two of these, don't you?

julie - trust me, Girl, if you haven't chosen a tv yet - GO SAMSUNG PLASMA!

kila - yours were awesome and PLENTIFUL! I'm still gazing at and adoring them! Thanks again!

Memphis Steve said...

Oh honey, you should be married to me! I have just the place for that TV all cleared away and waiting for delivery. And I have that issue of Consumer Reports on the nightstand next to my bed, too. I have to tell you, every real man admires a woman with hot sexiness and good taste in TVs and football. You must be some kind of dream woman!

Emma in Canada said...

I better not let me fella see this post otherwise he realli is going to opt for a new TV over a computer. You almost swayed me.

Tiggerlane said...

memphis steve - great minds think alike, don't they? Thanks for pumping up my ego.

emma - did I mention that this tv can also be used as a computer monitor? Something for BOTH of you!
