    I did this quiz and came up with 33 and I'm far from spoiled.

    Ahh, but did you do #30 because YOU wanted to. Travel on behalf of Uncle Sam's Misguided Children doesn't count.

    I came in at 31. Only because I don't shop or travel much. On the 'electronic toys', I pretty much aced it LOL.

    Cute quiz though

    oh, and a post script - a working washer and dryer is NOT being spoiled, IMHO. For any family with kids, it's a necessity.

    Killjoy, you are as spoiled as 15-year-old cheese stored in a bus terminal's toilet.

    I've hit Mexico and Canada on my own a couple of times.

    And that's what I'm always shooting for: cute. What every guy aims at.

    Karla, take it from a PWT escapee and a former teenage LCPL groom, a washer and dryer is not a guarantee in this life. I've sat in my a laundromat to prove it.

    I got 20, which really doesn't bode well with the whole "baby of the family" bit. Sharon will tell you that Mom and Dad spoiled me much more than she or Kary and I can tell you that's a blatant attack on my character and an all out lie...hehe.
    In NY a washing machine and a dryer is the ultimate in luxurious living. No one I know has one so any of you who do, consider yourself insanely spoiled.

    Yeah, me too - college student days - sitting on top of the washer reading Jane Austen for class and Tolkein for fun. But with little ones and their never-ending laundry????? I shudder to think of it. It was hard enough humping everything up and down two flights of stairs (the laundry is in our basement).

    Maybe I AM spoiled, just a bit.

    This post has been up all week and you still haven't fixed the egregious misspelling in the title. And shut up about how I don't know how to spell misspelling.

  • At 5:34 AM, Blogger Viper said…

    Jennifer, if you had a washer and dryer, you could sublet it out to midgets to live in.

  • At 5:36 AM, Blogger Viper said…

    O!, good catch, I fixed it.

    And in case you didn't catch it, I was gone from Wednesday to Sunday in California. Then again, if I knew it was bugging you, I would have left it mizspelld.
