That "Are You Spoiled?" Meme

Net access is mostly back although I lack confidence in it :). All is mostly well, thinking about writing the Mayday blot now. Temperatures are up so I'm probably putting away the quilting and taking out the knitting soon.

So, a meme, snagged from various folks...

If you have more than 40, you're spoiled.

( ) at least $100 cash in your possession right now
(X) more than two credit cards bearing your name (not counting gas cards or debit cards)
( ) a stock portfolio
( ) a passport [used to, haven't in years]
( ) a horse
( ) a trust fund (either for you or created by you)
( ) private medical insurance

Do you:
( ) shop for non-needed items for yourself (like clothes, jewelry, electronics) at least once a week
( ) do your regular grocery shopping at high-end or specialty stores

( ) send dinners back with every flaw

( ) stay at home with little financial sacrifice
( ) pay someone else to cook your meals
( ) pay someone else to watch your children or walk your dogs
( ) regularly pay someone else to drive you taxis
( ) expect a gift after you fight with your partner

Are you:
( ) an only child
( ) married/partnered to a wealthy person
( ) baffled/surprised when you don't get your way

Have you:
( ) been on a cruise
(X) traveled out of the country
( ) met a celebrity

I got 19, so I guess I'm not terribly spoiled?

Hey, I got 18, and I consider myself pretty lucky. :)

Some of these seemed like odd choices for luxury items, didn't they? I suppose that's the privilege talking, though... :)

Your internet connection
Glad to hear that your mostly reconnected to the net. All is bleh here, but the weather is better. I think that's really how I've always felt about the lower. Take care and hug Dan and the girls for me.

Re: Your internet connection
The weather has been better here as well, though, in the 60s for the last few days (cooling off this weekend). And the snow has been melting--we can get in the front door now! :)
