did any of you "airstream millionaires" get this?

got some really expensive looking junk mail the other day, from our friends at Mercedes Benz. a personal engraved "invitation" (well, I'll be...) to visit their website, with my own username and password, (cuz, you know...they don't want to deal with just "anybody"), to check out their new V-8 SUV.

now why do you suppose they'd think that I would either a) have the means to afford one of their fine automotive products, or b) have any interest in a v-8 SUV? hmmm.....

Nope. In the 6 months we've owned our 16' CCD, our mail composition has remained exactly the same:

35% mortgage refinance offers
25% keys for Chevies and Fords we haven't won
20% for credit cards we don't need
15% for magazines we don't want
15% solicitations for various causes to which we've already donated
10% carpet and replacement windows

So you can see that more than 100% of our mail is junkmail, and certainly not aimed at a particularly high demographic. Maybe it's cause we got the teensiest AS in production at the time?

Actually, any sort of "Airstream cachet" was news to us; we just liked 'em 'cause they looked cool, and our old bones wanted to try camping somewhere other than the cold wet ground for a change.
