I Am Distracted-Help!

I think I have a problem. I am a grown woman that gets easily distracted. Distracted by what you ask? I can hear you wondering. I get distracted by all things shiny and new.

I kid you not, if it’s shiny and new I must have it. Take for instance a cell phone. I bought a new Palm Centro cell phone less then a year ago that I love actually and already I am feigning for a new phone. A shiny new Blackberry. Oh how I heart those Blackberry’s.

I have a wonderful desktop PC that is perfectly fine. I’ve had the computer for less then 3 years. It’s great actually but I keep seeing all these new PC’s with all these cool bells and whistles, especially the TouchSmart one from HP that has a touch screen and there I am foaming at the mouth.

I have issues and I need help people and I need it quick before I end up in the poor house.

Help!

Nothing wrong with new shiny things and I feel the same way about cars. If I had it my way, I would lease a new car every three years for the new car smell. Yes, I have ISSUES :)

Boy do I hear that...I made the mistake of going to Best Buy over the weekend...So many shiney things to buy!

I completely understand where you are coming from because I am also like that. I love my Blackberry Curve 8320 but ever since the 8900 has come out I have been scheming on ways to get it. I have to have a new BB every couple of months. I just like the feel of new, shiny things! Is there a help group for this? Lol

we prefer to call it updating and upgrading so it doesn't sound so indulging.

wow, what a terrible plight, I just can't even imagine having those feelings. *cough*
Yeah, I'm no good to you, after years of trying to talk my husband off of that bright & shiny ledge, I'm afraid I just ended up joining him and now I'm needing the iphone and new shiny computer.
You know, you could just do it in the spirit of boosting the economy.

Are you sure you aren't really my older daughter, masquerading as some Diva living in the Baltimore area? She has the same problem. And, truth be told, I kind of am guilty of that too from time to time but since my checkbook controls everything I do and it rarely has enough funds there -plus now major credit card available either -I usually can get over it quickly. Daughter hasn't always been that lucky. (Oh by the way, I'm not a cat hater, but I'm not necessarily a cat worshiper either but my younger daughter here -total cat freak! I tend to prefer dogs myself. Some could say that is evident too in my choices of men over the years, but that's another story!)

I get excited when there's a "new" dishwashing detergent. I obviously need an intervention too.

Hit 40 said...

Gosh... I can not help you. I have to buy the damn office since the other broke!!

But...I am sick of buying stuff!! I just want to pay off my bills!!!

I love having new stuff, but I'm far too poor for anything but new gas in my car right now.

Tonya said...

Ha I love it. My friend was telling me about her husband who gets new phones all the time. She tells me about the cell phone graveyard. Her story totally reminds me of you right now!

Get the new shinny phone Diva!

lisaq said...

Haha...I soooo can't help. I'm exactly the same. I buy a new cell phone every year. I bought 2 computer in less than 3 years. If you find a 12 step program, please let me know!

I know of these cravings you have. But don't give in! Save your money because within 6 months, something new will come out. Perhaps you should wait until your birthday or Christmas and then treat yourself?

Fabulously Broke said...

I am really into technology, but I don't spend TOO much on clothes/shoes/jewellery most of the time

So.. I give in to my urges. BUt it's a balance hon :)

Terri said...

there's a reason why it's aka the "crackberry". I'm in the same boat, got my centro in Oct but am craving the storm or curve or whatever the newest is....oh well need to show some restraint because I am helping support a family of five.

CarmenSinCity said...

I love new and shiny stuff too!!!!!! I would love to get new computer with a touch screen! That would be awesome!

shorty said...

When you say "Help" is that you asking for $10?

LiLu said...

Oh, you are not alone in your lust for the touch screen! I covet it!
