Arthur and I have been wanting a new flatscreen monitor for a while now. We were still rockin' the old school monitor, you know, the one that weighs like a hundred pounds and takes up all the space on a computer desk. Ugh! Finally our old monitor gave out on us (happy dance), and I was FORCED to buy a new and much better one. Yay! I guess I'll call this my birthday present to myself. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TARA!!!
