So you prefer a more individual definition on the term indie?!

No, I want no definition. Stop trying to pigeonhole people, society!

I always thought a Yuppie was a "Young upwardly-mobile professional"
So it seems there's some confusion on the matter  tongue.gif

As Crutch said, it would then be Yumppie.

According to Wikipedia

According to Websters Dictionary

I assume this is a US/UK-Australia cultural divide - Yuppie definitely meant 'young upwardly-mobile professional' here. Well, I say meant, I pretty much am one now. OK-yah.

I think the definition that most suits me is "slob".
I think thats the message currently being bandied about the 6 year old T Shirt i am currently wearing.

Just ask Alanis Morissette.

hehe I quite like the sounds of a Yumpie.
Maybe Chapman is right and that's what it was known as in US/Aus as opposed to the UK.
Or maybe I was just wrong tongue.gif

The other one I remember from the 80s was Dinkies (Double Income No Kids)

I got such a Yindie-moment yesterday: I stood a the street light (right word?), waiting for green, coming from the shop with some disgusting potatoe-salat and a coke and there was this guy beside my, with his fashion mohawk and some tv-dinner and we both headed for our giant-condo-complex to eat our 21st century meals. I felt so conformistic!

Old Yindie Article, just cause I'm obsessed. Nah, not really but I like the fact that they aren't called Yindie in the article.
