Hi Fools!

I've decided to invest in a Plasma screen TV, and I figure the bigger the better. I'm not even sure 52-inch would be big enough, frankly, and I also need some surround-sound speakers, maybe BOSE, to go along with it.

This kind of investment is a big pill to swallow, especially with my upcoming wedding in about 60 days. I know that my DF will look somewhat askance at this, so I have to be as stealthy as possible about it, and maybe lessen the blow by investing in some stainless steel kitchen appliances, you know, for her, to replace our functional but "dated" ones, and maybe something along the way toward home improvevements also, like maybe a satellite dish or a hot tub.

I saw a furniture rental place downtown yesterday -- funny I walk by there all the time but have never gone in. I can invest in appliance upgrades for my whole house for only $150/month. There's a lot of other writing on the paperwork, but I'm getting married soon, I don't have time to read all that. I'm still trying to get through the whole vow-writing thing, and there's all the forms to fill out on Expedia.com and Hotels.com for the overseas honeymoon. I have a lot on my plate!

I'm a little bit short on cash (just a few bucks, nothing serious) right now, but I found this cool place called "Cash Now" right next door to the furniture rental place. They have all these signs up, like "No Faxing" and "No Credit Check" ... all I need is my paystub, apparently. Now why hasn't everyone figured out how to eliminate paperwork like these guys? How easy is that!

Plasma here I come! I'm going to buy some DVDs on learning foreign languages, and DVD encyclopedias, and stuff like that so I can make my investement in Plasma pay off as much as possible!
