What was it I said about impulse control and toddlers?
Can you read that? Wait, wait...
It wasn't entirely a selfish purchase. Mom wanted a DVD player for the family room tv, so she can watch her Jessica Fletcher DVDs during the day, downstairs. We have three DVD players in this house already, all of them attached to various tvs. I figured, if we bother to get another one for that room, why not just get myself a blu-ray and hook it up to mine, then give Mom the newest DVD player in the house?
So that's what I did. Might as well upgrade, seeing as how I already have a blu-ray disc (and was getting tired of taking it to my brother's house to watch it).
