Starbucks. Minivan. Roomba. iPod. Dell laptop. Pottery Barn. Gamecube. Beetle. Tivo.

Surely you must qualify for a yuppie-boomer-consumer honorary member card...

Please let us know when you get a camera phone, a juicer, a Showtime rotisserie, an SUV, an espresso machine, a Nordictrack, a bucket of Oxyclean, a Sony Aibo, a massaging recliner, an Ionic Breeze, a Soniclean toothbrush, shoes with lights in them, anything from Tommy Hilfiger and the complete Jerry Bruckheimer movie collection on Blu-Ray disc...

I think there is something to be said for trying to get away from the bombardment of commercials in our society. Both the Tivo and the iPod help us work toward that goal especially since Molly. These products also help us select the type of music and tv programs that we want Molly to be influenced by. There is also something to be said for good design. To find a product that is aesthetically pleasing along with funtionality constitutes quality which can be hard to come by.

Okay guys, join Nik and myself in the land of Sirius Satellite Radio and we shall all walk the walk of the yuppy together....

I LOVE my iPod, my iMac and my SUV. :) Oh, and I DO have a Dyson vacuum cleaner! :)

Except, we are still DINKs...
