I have never...

 taken a picture with my telephone.

twittered or tweeted or whatever it’s called.

TM’ed via telephone.

found my way with a GPS.

had an fb account.

used an iPad, iPhone, or iAnything.

owned an iPig. Seriously, I saw one today. What the oink!?

downloaded or listened to music on an mp3.
walked through a big-box store with a Blue Tooth gadget in my ear.

ordered a Frappuccino or any other coffeeccino drink.

owned a Chevrolet vehicle. (I used this one once in a game of “I have never...” I was not believed, but it is true.)

sent an email that ends with “Sent from my Blackberry.”

bought anything promoted on an infomercial or a late night “But wait!” advert.

been happier about anything else.
What have you never done that "everyone else" seems to be doing?

I have never in my life had coffee. Love the smell, but have never had the inclination to try it.

I've done a few of those things, but the only one I like is texting. It's very efficient in communicating with my kids. It's quick, to the point, and I don't have to try to decipher a phone conversation with a cabillion kids in the background. It's like email, but quicker. And when you've got teens, it's the only way to survive.

I have done some of those. But I've never worn high heels, never done anything to my eyebrows except when the face was lucky enough to get washed entire, ordered a mixed drink (I have had a beer at a bar, so I can't claim that prissy bit of high ground). And I don't have a smart phone (yet)

I still think texting is the dumbest thing on the planet. I think smartphones are cool but I don't need one (and where were they when I did? Not invented yet ::sigh::).

mp3 players are ever so much nicer than portable cd players. I have one, I use it- can't walk anywhere without music. I don't exactly download music but I do convert youtube videos to mp3's and then add them to my playlists - so maybe that's almost the same thing.

trying to think of something in the pop culture that I haven't done and have no intention of ever doing - Wait - karaoke! Never done it, never will.

I LOVE Apple - I have 3 Apple machines (pad, laptop, desktop). They are marvelous.

And stupid, expensive coffee drinks? Pah! But I do love a cappuccino - you know the kind you get in an Italian cafe or good restaurant.

Shelly, now that is a revelation!

Lin, so you don’t have to talk to the kids? Not bad.

Sharkey, very smart choice on the heels thing. We’ll give you a pass on the beer; you are still a teetotaler.

Grace, you are tied to your music! Sadly, I admit to having “done” karaoke.

Although my home phone uses the cellular network of the carrier, I have never owned a cell phone let alone a smart phone. It's more of a benefit/cost ratio calculation than anything else.

Vee, you haven't missed much. Of course, the one I saw was a really early release, "Ticonderoga," I think. Don't know the new technology.

Chuck, enjoy the savings, and you are saving. We "need" ours because of the away-from-house thing in the winter.

I've done more than half of these. What I have not done is blog...or journal, for that matter.

Rebecca said...

I have done a lot of those, but only in the past 4 years! I am a tech writer so I must maintain a connection with the technology developments.

Your post inspired me to write my own on this topic. Come see what I listed and tell me if you have done any of those things!

Rebecca, I shall surf on over!
