I want all five seasons of Stargate Atlantis on DVD. Silly I know.

That is silly. It's cheaper on Blu-ray!

I....might have those somewhere, but I may have (probably...) given them away. PM me to remind me and I'll check when I get home.

New guitar. And only because (1) the neck is exactly 1.5" longer than my current guitar, and (2) I perceive it to be more "metal" as my current guitar is more "rock & roll". Lusting after objects does not get much stupider than that folks.

...even though I couldn't afford it with money I didn't have.

Meaning you COULD afford it with money you DID have?

I want my body to start working, so I can stop spending all of my extra money on medical bills. $10k last year, and starting this year off at $2500. It's a stupid thing to lust after because life doesn't work that way...but man, I'd be doing really well if I could have thrown all of that money in my savings, instead of towards medical bills.

I know the feeling. 10 years ago, when I started earning a decent paycheck I started collecting electric guitars because I liked the color or the fretboard inlay design looked cool, or I didn't already own a guitar with that brand name or I didn't have X type of humbuckers on my current guitars. I think I have 6-7 guitars at this point, but most of them were purchased from second hand music shops or on scratch and dent discounts. I now have the first-world problem of having too many guitars to clean, maintain, store, tune and etc.

Ugh. I get that. 

I've had recurring knee issues and every time I go to the PT, its ~$100 and I think, "another day of retirement, spent at the PT".  But with that said, I don't think that it would be much fun to be retired and feeble, so I pony up and get it done.

I want a Tern GSD. I don't need it but I want it so bad. If I got one it would probably sit in my garage all the time because I don't have any need for such a thing. But I want it so bad now.

A remodeled bathroom, which if I am able to use the workers I'm hoping to use, will cost something that is reasonable so I will go forward with it.
 
The other thing that I want to do is (facepunch time) a trip to Universal studios. Another friend of mine is taking her family in the fall; we all as a group get along really well so it is very tempting, plus i've never been.   

The only other trip I have planned in the future is to visit my immediate family in the summer. We were supposed to do a nice vacation during that visit (state park), but as my older brother is seriously ill, any "fun" plans are up in the air.

A Toyota Corolla iM, or whatever it's called. The functional replacement for the Pontiac Vibe.

Except I have a car and no reason to replace it other than I miss my Vibe.

A new PC. Mine is 8 years old. But the thing is, I sit at a PC all day at work and never really feel like using on at home, so I'm not sure what I'd do with it.

Toyota Auris, Toyota Corolla Hatchback, Toyota Corolla HB, Scion iM, Toyota Corolla iM, Toyota Blade. Take your pick. Looks like in the US they are currently going with the name Toyota Corolla Hatchback:

FWIW, I saw a review of it, and now I want one, too.  It sounds like a well-designed, well-thought-out car.  The problem is that my '95 Corolla is still going strong, and I don't want to spend the money to replace it.

Upgrading my iPhone

To defend myself a little bit: current iPhone is an iPhone 6, over 4 years old, and now the speakers don't work for phone calls. Wifi calling is fine, but on cellular calls I can't hear the other person. They can hear me fine, but I cant here them, whether its through the phone, the speaker, my bluetooth earbuds, bluetooth car... nothing works.

On the upside, brother has a spare iPhone 6 plus that he uses for his software programming stuff. Said 6+ doesn't need to make phone calls, so we can swap phones when we see each other over the weekend. Dunno what to offer him yet as my thanks (plus this is a downgrade to him, so I want to throw at least a little $ in the pot for him). Also, he's planning on upgrading when the newest fanciest thing is announced, and offered his X for cheap.

Husband when I told him brother wanted to upgrade from the iPhone X. "What?! What is there to upgrade past the X?!" Me: "The XS and XR?" (don't worry, I didn't know about them either until I was at the apple store yesterday trying to get my phone fixed.)
