The good news is, he's going to sell me his TV. There's always a silver lining, right? And of course there's the other silver lining, of an excuse to have a goodbye party. I envision a big banner saying Bon Voyage. Unfortunately there aren't many people we both know in common (he's "uncomfortable" inviting people I don't know to my house), so it will be a small dinner/hot tub party with a few of our Village Inn friends, and then we'll move over to Brian's house (he has to be home by 10) and invite ALL his friends over.
In addition to the TV purchase, I am also buying a PS2 (not from him) so I can use it as a DVD player and because it has.... GUITAR HERO!
