I keep reading about all you people on my FList getting a Permanent Account! Stop it! Stop it!
I want one.
I hate being financially challenged. I need a rich patron to shower me with presents . . . and a permanent LJ account.
Fooie. Material covetousness is evil. Evil! But I waaaaant it. *weeps*
Nope, still can’t justify it. Tried. Couldn’t do it. Maybe next time 🙂
Me neither. But I’m still wistfully covetous.
I covet as well.
Honey, we put it on an already high credit card that has 7% interest. Don’t envy our stupidity. We just… couldn’t help it. We’d always have paid accounts, and it’ll pay off in a few years anyway. Plus with the icon limit going up (and paid being able to, but having to pay for it) to 100, it’ll pay off sooner.
It’s why I said credit is evil. If we didn’t have that, we would not have gotten it, because we can’t afford to drop $300 on such a silly thing. But we’re Americans, so we have credit, so we buy silly things and pay much more than we would have for it just by interest.
This is why I prefer to pay cash for things, it keeps me from being stupid. 😉
I know, I know. I can’t justify the expense, especially for such a frivolous thing. But I’m still going to press my nose longingly against the glass.
Has your whining produced any donations?
It works for the political parties and charities, why not bloggers!
Alas, no. But there’s nothing like a spot of public whining to get sympathy comments. Hurray!
I wish I could help…
But I agree with you that it can be disheartening to see a lot of people on one’s F-list announce that they’ve bought a permanent account.
I know. I want one too, but I don’t have the extra bucks right now. Maybe they’ll offer it again next year.
Post some adorable Hobkin pictures. Don’t forget – almost anyone can have a permanent LJ account (as long as they have the money and the desire to spend it). Not everyone can have an adorable little skunkie named Hobkin.
I’m in the same boat. My nose is starting to get flat!
Never having had a paid account, I don’t know what I’m missing. But I know how you feel, nonetheless; there are oodles of other things that I’d love to have, and can’t.
OMG, I was just thinking whether I should do free account once my paid account is expired..now they’re doing this “permanent memberships”? I’m sorry to say this is all a big gimmick and a waste of money. Why they’re doing this ONLY within 24 hours!!? Beats me. I used to have a permanent membership in a spa and once they change ownership, they left me in a big hole. I’m not sure this is forever. And who can LJ here forever? I’m not….
