    My office is trying to get rid of this $3400 50″ wide plasma. It’s pretty slick. We’re upgrading. It just sat on the wall and played cable sometimes while people were bored. I believe the price if we or our friends buy before it goes to eBay is like $839 or something under $900. Let me know if you want the details. I’d go for it, it’s just a larger investment than I’ve probably made since I got the car I’m still paying off since 120k miles ago.

    2-E) awwww, ditto. what’s up with that?
    1-F) Yah, Buffet. Me too except: it’s not my kind of show because I won’t tolerate those prices, those rules, those huge groups of people I wouldn’t waste on making perfectly good soylent green nor the lines to the big stinky plastic pisser. Feck-That!

    You want a real show – VNV-FUCKING-NATION oh yes, and there’s a show coming up with the Wild and Kooky And One (yah, I know! and have you heard the latest VNV Album, Judgement? oh yah…)

    1to3-F) I’d join you but… I have to draw the line somewhere
    4-F) Yes, like with pool being any good or even capable doesn’t make it that much more entertaining anyway. I miss my weekly texas hold ’em – fun game! I’ve made an agreement to play pool at least one Friday per month at any cost though – so maybe I’ll be able to play as well as a passed-out-drunk hobo off the street. That would be neat. 😀
