Despite the lure of the big screen, we’re not about to get a plasma TV.
It’s not (just) the money. We’ve nowhere to put it. We don’t have a fireplace to hang it over, the living room walls all have sofas or shelves, the current TV sits under the window.
Plasmas aren’t green. In fact they’re so un-green they may soon be banned.
And then there’s the cat. Percy has taken to sprawling on top of the TV, one paw dangling in front of the picture, thus combining his desire for elevation, warmth and attention.
A flatscreen just wouldn’t do.
