A Retro TV, Reborn

Editor’s Note: Yes, I understand that I have not written my regularly scheduled college football recap posts for the past two weeks. I blame it on the busyness involved with moving to Eugene, starting a new slate of classes and hiring for Allen Hall Public Relations. I also understand that there are absolutely zero people waiting breathlessly for my next installment, but in fairness to my blog, I had to include the disclaimer.

On to the real news.

This is the view from where I sit in the living room of my new house at school:

After a comedy of errors involving two defunct (or nearly defunct) televisions, we were gifted with this lovely piece of TV history. As retro as it may be, it functions perfectly and we didn’t pay a penny for it. A win all around, really.

I don’t consider myself to be a TV junkie by any means, but there is something to be said for having instant access. The past three years, I lived in an all-girls co-op house where TVs were either three flights downstairs or monopolized by movie-watching couples (or both). Now that I live in a house with seven other girls, our people-to-TV ratio is much more manageable, and I foresee numerous peaceful nights in front of the tube.

And I haven’t told my housemates, but I’m hosting a World Series party. You’re invited.
