Was there ever something you wanted so incredibly bad. I'm not talking about that must have game or something like it. Where you were just so into and lovedit so much.

For me, I would have to say the 1st gen 5gb iPod when I was in 5th grade. I wanted it so bad.

N64 back in '96. Oh yeah, best console ever made. Still play it sometimes :cool:


BTW, I wanted it for about 3 months before I actually got it... Man that was one of the worst 3 months ever!

Ha! You Ever try waiting 6 months for a Graphics Card? 8 months for an iPod? 1 year for a Gameboy? 3 years for an N64? 6 years for a Computer?

Hmm... Probably some kind of videogame system. Game Gear, which I never got (and I'm glad I didn't), Gameboy Pocket which I got and still cherish. Umm... Turntables, which I eventually got, but then I never used them :rolleyes: and I just recently sold. A Mac and iPod, you know how that turned out :D

MINI cooper S... I wanted it while it was still in its concept stages (the BMW one), I did not want it 'after watching Italian Job.' :rolleyes: Waited about 4 years... should have had to wait another year but I was very very lucky and my parents were willing to shell out more $$$ to get what was in stock/on the lot versus having me customize a cheaper one that would have had a wait time of over a year.


:edit: Ooh ooh ooh! How could I have forgotten? I always wanted my own horse. :eek: :D

grade school years...i wanted long hair, and i was never allowed that as a kid

middle school...i wanted a girlfriend

high school...more than one girlfriend, he he

adulthood...a master's degree in anything...i ended up spending so much money in different subjects i never ended up making my mind but i took a lot of classes in law, business, and computer science...ugg, and i could have bought a few great mac setups in that period of time :)

Lonely, I'm so lonely, I have no money.
very true

and even if i had all the money in the world, i would be completely clueless as to how to treat/date a girl in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade :)

luckily, for me, i didn't have a girlfriend in junior high...it would basically be too much for poor ole me

i did have a girlfriend when i was a junior in high school...she was really pretty but i had the advantage of being an upperclassman while she was a freshman...but when she realized she was hot, i am sure she would have easily dumped me and picked up a hunk or something

i was not confident to date someone my age until my mid 20s or so...but in a few years after that, i got into the older women like ashton k., he he ;)

My good old commodore c64 man I wanted that thing so bad I think I waited almost a year to get one. (Or maybe it took me a year to convince my parents to get me one. I can't remember cause that was almost 20 years ago)

and now I'm wanting that Intel PowerBook really really bad.

When I was little I wanted to learn to play guitar. My mom always told me no, because my dad's a musician, and a bum. She finally caved and let me. I still play today, and I love it. I couldn't imagine life without it.
