Actually, "me" always refers to an object, the one running the handler. 
If the handler is in a field, "me" is a reference to the field. This:

   put "xxx" into me

is the same as:

   put xxx into fld <fld reference>

where <fld reference> is the one containing the handler.

But if you really want to have fun (and this is a good example of why 
"the" is so important, as per another thread), take a look at "target":

   target = contents of the object
   the target = reference to the object
