Am I mental?

I just can't help lusting after stuff I don't need. I've got my eye on another TV when my current Sony is only 18 months old, and its great! I want another iPod touch because, er, I don't know. I really want to upgrade my surround sound system to a Bose one. I really want to get a Samsung tablet so I can see how it measures up to the new iPad. I want to change loads of radiators throughout my house (which is on the market) to ones which look nicer. I want to re do my entire iTunes collection because I feel the need to rip my CD collection at a better quality. I am obsessed with purchasing blu rays. And I have just forked out a substantial amount on a new watch, and already have another one on my radar :lol: .

I also feel the need to upgrade my sky box to the bigger one, even though the current one is currently only 6% full.

I could go on further, but won't. But, am I mental?

Well, okay maybe I am :lol: but anybody who watches that stuff must have also had a substantial whack with the mental stick :wink:

You might not be mental.

You might just be stupid and thus have been sucked into the advertiser's vortex.

Companies like Apple love people like you.

Hey, enough with the presumptions :lol: I'm married with 2 lovely kids actually. As for apple loving me..why would they love someone who wants to buy a rivals tablet?

Saying all that though, I don't go out much or drink much either. I just game and watch stuff. As for the watch, I managed to afford that by kicking my £230 per month ciggy habit and spending approx £60 per month on the watch. A bit of a no brainier I suppose. But I'm now thinking that theoretically I still have another £170 to blow on luxury goods I have no real need for.

I just love, stuff.

Do you want to upgrade the wife to a bigger one with a larger capacity?

Something my mum brings up a lot, "When you gonna settle down and get your self another half"
"But im already complete, adding another half would turn me into some kind of fraction that is messed up"

As for kids, cant stand them
