Free TV  
Does anyone want a free TV?

It is an oldish 4:3, about 45cm, with a dodgy remote control, a cracked casing and rather poor colour reproduction.

Free for the taking, you just have to pick it up from Richmond.

In other news, I'm waiting on delivery of our brand new 66cm widescreen TV!

As long as you don't mind that I'm grabbing it for fizit as her old one died when she loaned it to one_dreamy_girl!

Re: Yes
I don't care, we just want to get rid of the thing.
We don't have an awful lot of space in our one-bedroom flat.

I've added you on MSN, so I'll give you a buzz, and try and organise a time for you to pick it up.

Re: Yes
Uhhh... okay! I'm not sure how that works.... doesn't giving someone a buzz require a.... uhhhhh.... phone number?

Re: Yes
I meant on Instant Messenger, but since AIM doesn't seem to work in offline mode I'll have to make other arrangements. Maybe you should call Luke, and he can put you in touch with me.

I have always found it terribly difficult to give away a TV.

I'm afraid that you wouldn't make a very good salesman.
Jacobyak_boy on February 11th, 2005 04:13 am (UTC)
Well, since I'm not selling anything, and since someone has already agreed to take the television, I'm not sure I know what you're talking about.
Jessjess2903 on February 11th, 2005 11:17 am (UTC)
I mean you'd have had more chance of people wanting to take the TV if you made it sound a bit...in better condition maybe? You know like they sell houses and stuff. Whatever...

So, you're saying I should lie to my friends.
Okay, thanks for the advice.
Jessjess2903 on February 13th, 2005 03:49 am (UTC)
You've totally missed the point...
Jacobyak_boy on February 14th, 2005 06:37 am (UTC)
Well, you're basically saying that I have emphasised the negative points.
But, I did that on purpose, because I don't want anyone having false expectations about the TV that I'm giving away. It's basically a piece of shit, and I want anyone who comes and takes it to be aware of that in advance. That's why I'm giving it away.

Oooh, when do you get your new TV? =)
Jacobyak_boy on February 12th, 2005 09:12 pm (UTC)

It came on Friday.
Kittymoorekittie on February 13th, 2005 11:17 am (UTC)
Oh, the excitement.

Do you love it? =D

More than life itself.

I mean, yeah, it's pretty cool.

Oddly enough, the best thing about it is that it's finally great to be able to see shows in proper colour.
