TV Dinner

Dinner: sushi take-outI felt lazy tonight after a long day at work (why are Mondays always so hard?) so I picked up some take-out from Taro’s Teri & Sushi. I spent the rest of the night with a bowl of chirashi (the fish was actually good!), some episodes of 90210, and a couple hours of Persona 4.

I had never watched 90210 before. I didn’t catch it when it was airing on television years ago because I was too young to be interested in the show and I don’t think my parents would have let me watch the hot and steamy scenes anyway. I thought there would be more risque scenes than there are. I guess that’s just what they show in the commercials back then.

Yay TV!

My new console gaming setup

Yes, we’ve finally moved into the HDTV age. We had an HDTV before, but it was only a 26″, which we thought would be enough when we got it, but now compared to this TV, I can’t believe we’ve been looking at a small screen for so long.

This baby is a Panasonic Viera 50″ plasma with 1080p. Unfortunately, we can’t test out the 1080p functionality because I have one of the old 360s with no HDMI-out. Noooooo! Oh well, I’m still glad I got this. Now I can actually see the text from my games without having to stand up from the couch.

I’m still paranoid about image retention. Luckily, Gears doesn’t have a static crosshair most of the time and I switch weapons enough to prevent burn in of the weapon shapes.
