What You Get for the Money

I am convinced there is some sex-linked gene that causes guys to love electronics. All the time I see they drooling over televisions, Playstations, remote-controlled cars (that were probably made for a ten year old!), or whatever else passes by them.

Case in point: my sweet boyfriend thinks that he HAS to have a plasma TV. I just do not get it. In a year or two the price will come way down and the technology will have improved. Do you really need a high-def flat screen to watch Law and Order reruns?

This 50” LG plasma will run you about four thousand eight hundred dollars... or $4,800 if you are illiterate.

To my girlie eyes this TV could pay for like 12 Days of Christmas but for the sake of simplicity here is a smaller list of item you could purchase for the same price:

Tiffany's Charm Bracelet, a mere four hundred fifty dollars...

Overly gaudy Fendi bag, eight hundred forty five dollars...


Sassymax, fake boobs on the cheap and without painful surgery, sixty-nine dollars...


Burberry nightie, keeping it classy for one hundred thirty five dollars...


Very pink luggage that will never get lost, four pieces on special for three hundred seventy dollars...



(In case you are adding, the current total is only $1,869!)

Red hot leather armchair, one thousand nine hundred dollars, ouch...


Deluxe spa package at the Ritz including deluxe accommodations, full breakfast, and 25-minute reflexology Treatment, Spa Pedicure, a Moment of Serenity massage, and finally a Petite Facial, four hundred fifty dollars, ahhhhh....

And finally the perfect shoes for all those holiday gatherings, Jimmy Choo velvet sandals, five hundred eighty dollars...


For a grand total of just under four thousand eight hundred!!

Plasma versus all that? Boys are so silly.
