iphones, Macs, and iPods

Sometimes I feel like a loser. I have a crusty, old, effeminate looking LG cell phone. I have a 1 gig Sansa MP3 player that doesn’t work very well. I have a Dell Latitude D830 laptop (My friend Jason believes Dell is a cuss word, use it in a sentence, you will agree). I don’t have an iPhone, iPod, or Mac. Am I really a loser? I hope not, and that question is rhetorical, by the way.

As I think about my lifestyle, I don’t really have anything trendy.  What does that say about me?  It may say that I am frugal, practical, and/or unswayed by cultural pressures.  Or, it may say that I am irrelevant, cheap, out-of-touch, stuck in my ways, unable to change, ignorant of technology, and/or boring.

I do have a Facebook page, I Twitter, and I blog (obviously), so in that way I am trendy, I suppose, but still cheap because all of these are free.

I think the reality is, I don’t have that much negotiable income.

    You hit it right on the nose buddy. Availability of funds controls a lot about what we can or can not do. Sucks sometimes but it makes you appreciate what you have got.
