Instead of putting my holiday bonus towards some dull and reasonable like my student loans I went ahead and bought a new tv. It's a purchase I've been thinking about on and off for some time. With a little extra scratch in the bank and the fact I watch way too much tv for my own good, I decided it was time to take the plunge. So, I've upgraded from my old-timey 27" CRT to a beautiful 40" LED.

As an extra bonus, it's a Google TV. So, while Hulu is (obnoxiously) blocked, I can surf the internet. Which means dramas on the big screen!

All that's left now is to get my HD service turned on.

Nothing much else to report. My mother is in town for the week, so I haven't been watching dramas. Once the company is gone though, I'm definitely going to check out Wild Romance. What is everyone else looking forward to? As far as I can recall nothing on the jdrama schedule caught my eye, but it's been a while since I looked.

Oh! I also want to check out the twdrama, Skip Beat!. Who is watching that?
First, the bad news. I parked on the street in front of my house Friday night. Saturday morning I go out and discover some jackass has sideswiped my car in the early hours, busted my driver-side mirror, and ran. No note, nothing. So now I am out $450 for brand new mirror and the labor needed to reinstall it. Plus, I won’t get it until after the weekend due to the holiday. Until then I have to drive around like some redneck with a broken mirror. It’s a little scary driving sans mirror. I enjoy being able to see. I should count my blessings that it wasn’t worse. I can’t imagine what it would have cost if they had damaged more of my car.

Cut for picture of damage )

I really hope karma comes back and bites them in the ASS.

Good news: I’m done with Christmas shopping! Now I just need to wrap everything. Christmas is rather small this year given I have no money, which is sad because I really do enjoy getting people things. I had also meant to make a rag quilt for my mom, but never got around to it. I’m finally in the Christmas spirit, though! I’m even listening to Christmas music at my desk (thanks, Pandora). We got a little dusting of snow, which almost ended with me on my ass because ice and heels don’t mix. But, I survived.

What I watched this weekend, jdramas, kdramas, and regular-type tv! )
