Well today we went and did a bit of shopping here. Our tax return finally made it’s appearance and naturally we went to spend some of it. We ended up at Micro Center. There we purchased a 26″ Sharp flat panel T.V.. Shane wanted to use it for both a T.V. in the bedroom and something he could use as a second monitor. While it works as a monitor, it’s not perfect. Basically the resolution is smaller than he hoped and it’s a bit too big to fit comfortably on the desk. He’s using it for now, but is likely to pick up a different monitor once the funds from his Pell grant arrive.
While we were out, we also purchased a Play Station 3. We had talked about purchasing a Blue Ray player, but of the difference in price it made more sense to pick up the PS3. While we purchased a second controller for it, we haven’t purchased any games for it yet. We decided it made more sense to get a GameFly subscription and rent the games first. We also have several PS2 games which we haven’t played since our PS2 died with a drive problem.
Besides all this, Shane recently introduced me to Mafia Wars on FaceBook. And from there I’ve also seen Vampire Wars and Pirates: Rule the Caribbean! I’ve found them to be rather addictive. As you can see we now have plenty to play around here.
