(this video is from a year ago, but the content is pertinent)
my wife and i just finished up our taxes and we have a decent amount coming in.
so like the children we are, we're buying ourselves presents (and our daughter's upcoming birthday will be well stocked)
we went to best buy, where i burned out the rest of my christmas giftcards to nab a returned toshiba hd-dvd for really cheap.
it came with bourne ultimatum and 300. plus 5 free through the mail (we're nabbing pitch black, charlie and the chocolate factory, troy, the frighteners and the italian job. i'll be pawning bourne and troy in hopes for enough pawn credit to nab transformers hd.
but that's not the most childish of it all, tomorrow i'll be nabbing a blu-ray player (with 10 free mail-in movies)
i figured the cheap hd dvd player will be good for the few releases i can't get on blu-ray. and with blu-rays (rightful) stranglehold on all the studios, i'm willing to pay $399.99 for a player.
my wife and i watched 300 and marveled over the dirt and eyebrow hair. if that ain't livin', i don't know what is.
also, my wife is stoked to nab a couch... yipee.
i'll defend the minute amount of adulthood my wife and i can contain by stating that we're still putting almost 2/3rds of our return into savings.
