No stemmed wine glass for me. I've got a 4-inch high, 2-inch wide, little shot glass looking thing to drink my wine out of. And I love it! One bottle, almost gone.
My understanding is that this is a reasonably common way Italians drink wine. I'm not a fan of stemware, either. In fact, I just found some glasses that sound very similar to what you're describing for my wine consumption. You miss the aroma of the wine as you drink, but for me it's all about the flavor anyway.
stemless wineglasses are very in right now...although i'm pretty sure they used to just be called brandy snifters
