Brigid has a post on wanting. Specifically wanting a wheelgun in .357 Magnum. I link it for you with a wonderful quote:
My non shooty friends said “you could get a huge, new TV for that cost!” My shooty friends said “damn, I want one”. Some of both said “but that’s old, don’t you want something new and high tech?” No, I didn’t. I had a little plastic gun with all the personality of a Pez Dispenser.
That last line is shiny.
