6. Of your list I only have a camera cell phone and a laptop
No desktop, tho'. And honestly, it's nearly impossible to buy a non-camera phone these days. My GF works for an organization with security clearances and you aren't allowed to bring camera phones into the building. She had one (1) option for a non-camera phone and it's a piece of shit.

Until about a week ago I had no microwave for over a year. It was fine until I moved in by myself and realized that cooking for one is easier if you make a big dish at the beginning of the week and reheat it for the rest of the week.

10. Got a cell phone, but it doesn't have a camera
And it stays in the glove compartment unless I'm charging it.

Don't have any of the rest of that stuff except a fax machine, and I inherited it from a previous relationship. Well, I've got a laptop, but it's a museum piece. Toshiba 1910T. Monochrome, 14.4 PCMCIA card, 4 megs o' RAM, runs Windows 3.1.

Ain't got cable/satellite, much less DVR.

I don't miss a thing except the History Channel and TCM. x(

11. Normally,
there are quite a few things I wouldn't be owning, but due to a small windfall last year, I was able to get a few things I wanted.

Currently, these are things I don't have:

a RAZR phone
a Blackberry
a widescreen TV (though I now have a 27" HDTV)
a plasma TV or LCD TV
a 3 in 1 printer/fax/copier
a working automobile
a moped
a savings account
a current passport
common sense :)

13. I don't have an iPod
Nor do I have an LCD TV or other high-tech widescreen.

No Blackberry or palm pilot device.

No TiVO either.

I have no idea what Youtube.com is, and I will never go to MySpace. :-)

16. I was tempted to get one just for that purpose
I figured it would be a good thing to do with Little MB, but alas, the funds have not been available as of yet.

18. Well, I don't have an Ipod
Or a laptop, blackberry, palm pilot or fancy TV. A fancy TV would be wasted - I don't have either cable or satellite. Here in the mountains with my antenna, I get three channels - the Blue channel, the Snow channel and the Static channel.

I have a fax and scanner because I have an all in one printer with those features. And I do have a camera phone though I never use the camera and rarely use the phone - I mostly have it for emergencies and when I travel.

19. Everything that you mentioned except
a palm pilot, which a Luddite relative won in a contest and gave to me. I've never used it.

I don't have a cell phone, never mind on with a camera.

Most kitchen thingE's, with the exception of a food processor and a crock pot.

I don't have an iPod or other personal mp3 player.

20. iPod
Don't plan to get one.

I could give you a decent list of stuff I do have, but you didn't ask for that.

I don't have a laptop, or a blackberry, or any kind of wireless internet stuff.
