HDTV update: the waiting is the hardest part

I ordered my new TV yesterday afternoon, and someone from the store called me today to verify the total and my address for shipping. I'm now waiting for a call from the shipping company to schedule the delivery. I hope it's Friday or Saturday, as I can take time off on Friday or be at home all day Saturday to wait. Then I need to find a friend who wants to help me move the old TV and set up the new one. Said friend will get the benefit of being able to watch the HD programming of their choice on my new HD-DVR cable box, which I picked up this morning from Time Warner. I have to rush home after work and install it so I can record "Friday Night Lights" and "South Park," as I have plans after work. I've also ordered HDMI cables, which should arrive at the office tomorrow. If I don't have them, Time Warner supplied me with some component video cables which would suffice for the weekend should matters become desperate.

So now I'm playing the waiting game. As Homer Simpson once said, "I hate the waiting game. Let's play 'Hungry Hungry Hippos' instead!"
