EA Tiburon Runs Up Score

Taxes... always get that out of the way as soon as I receive my W2's in the mail, so I don't have to worry about it.

QOTD: 4 TVs and 2 cell phones(my personal phone, and work phone) I haven't had a land line in over 5 years.

QOTD: I've got 2 hdtv's (50", 30") and the buddy of mine that's living with me right now has a 32" lcd. I've got one wireless base with 2 cordless phones hooked up to that base and 2 cell phones.

What's Up? I had a nice vacation with the family last week in Orlando, Florida. Beautiful weather in the 80's and sunny every day. We spent the first 3 days at Universal Studios, then moved into our time share at WDW. My wife and I hadn't to been to Universal in 10 years and it was the first time for my kids. They have some great rides and attractions, but I still like Disney better. Now back in NY waiting for Spring to come.

QOTD: 6 TV's (2 HD). 5 phones (one line).

I have one 32" LCD HDTV in the living room, a small 17" TV in the bedroom, and 2 cellphones. Mine and my wife's. We don't have a land line.

My TV situation is laughable, its a 27" standard def tv my old roommate left for me, I think because he felt bad I had a 18" P.O.S. I have a cordless hooked up in my bedroom.

QOTD: We have a 42' plasma (mine), 50' plasma, and 3 regular sized Sony's avgeraged at 30', So 5 tvs and we have 6 phones in the house plus a few cell phones.

QOTD: Right now we have a 57" Mits DLP and a 50" SXRD, though the latter is on it's way out for something more manageable (looking to a 30" LCD or something). As for phones, my wife and I only have a land line, cordless with two handsets...believe it or not!

4 TV's and 3 phones (not including 2 cell phones).

HDTV in the family room, SDTV in both bedrooms and in the basement. Wireless phones in the kitchen and both bedrooms.

I'm waiting for one of the other TV's to die before buying another HDTV to put in my bedroom. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem like it's going to happen soon, but I can't justify in my mind replacing one of the non-HDTV's for an HDTV until one of them dies.
