You boys should be proud of me

I did some post-Thanksgiving shopping this weekend. Not the type for other people. The type for me.

Whatever, they totally have the best sales after Thanksgiving and it makes SENSE to shop for myself then.

I didn't do any of the girly-type shopping, either. Nope, I went straight to Man-Heaven for my indulgence needs: Best Buy. I followed this up with a trip to Good Guys, which as of this morning is closed forever (which means AWESOME clearance savings). What did I get myself?

A 46" widescreen rear-projection Samsung television.

A Playstation 2.

Eight new games for my PS2, including the man-friendly titles Soul Calibur 3, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and a fun Simpsons game whose title I can't recall. I also purchased a second controller, DDR with a dance pad (fun AND good cardio!), two memory cards and an Eyetoy.

DVD seasons for some of my favorite TV shows (including Nip/Tuck and Arrested Development).

Not a blouse or pair of shoes in the mix. I think tonight I should paint my nails or something to prove to myself that I haven't grown a penis. Except that would take away time from playing games in front of my giant new TV.

I'll post a pic of the new bigscreen once I get home from work.

Yay for the PS2! I use DDR for cardio as well, and I'm addicted to Final Fantasy XI.

Marry me.

(And if you really wanted to make it the Man Trifecta, you would've gone to the Sharper Image.)

darlyn -- birds of a feather, we :)

micah -- I guess it would only be right, seeing as how I popped your cherry and all.

Well, duh. We have to get married. Oh, yeah: I'm pregnant.

There's nothing like Best Buy at 5 am on Black Friday. (I got there late though - like 5:10!) But my DVD collection has significantly improved thanks to all the sales, especially Target. I picked up Arrested Development at BB too. :)

Looking forward to pictures of the TV. :)

Wow...that is a nice haul you brought in! I can't wait to see your TV!

On a smaller scale, I did similar shopping: cable modem, wireless router, and memory card for my camera. :) A pox on all of those blouse and shoe sales!

micah -- oh my god! We're having a baby!

marissa -- mmmmm, Best Buy sales...

odderie -- blouses and shoes are for, um, other people! :)

So I am having issues uploading my picture to the post. I'll work on this later. I promise I intend to post a picture, if blogger will let me!

Forget Micah, only fruits go to Sharper Image. I on the other hand am prepared to give you hot sex in between watching your 46" flat panel. Wait a sec... is that one of those rear projection pos'? Eh, back to my porn collection.

So that's where that walking pomegranite was headed...

As for the hot sex, I don't know -- it looks like I've already got one brat on the way and I probably shouldn't be taking unnecessary risks right now (although the world might be a better place filled with a bunch of mini-mes... hmm). At least the porn is better on my 46" tv.

Say what you will about the Sharper Image. I'll just say two words: massage chair. 'Nuff said.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm having weird cravings for pickles and ice cream.

R U a hermaphrodite? That's hawt.

ooooooooooo massage chair..... Careful with those pickles, because I bet they'll taste a whole lot worse coming back up.

Paris -- as my alter ego, I think you know the answer to that question.
