Meme Means It's About Me! Me!

Gacked from inu_yukai:

Am I pampered? You be the judge:

Do I have
(X ) your own cell phone
(X ) a television in your bedroom -- It's a hand me down from the livingroom. MD watches it more than pilgham or I.
(X ) an iPod/MP3 player -- Not an iPod. I feel most people buy iPods because it's a safe choice and they are sheep.
( ) a photo printer -- Why? I do have a tabloid size high-res inkjet though.
( ) your own phone line
( X) TiVo or a generic digital video recorder
(X ) high-speed internet access
( ) a surround sound system in bedroom -- Don't watch TV in the bedroom
(X) DVD player in bedroom -- Another hand me down from the living room.
(X) at least a hundred DVD
( ) a childfree bathroom
(X ) your own in-house office
( ) a pool
( ) a guest house
( ) a game room
(X ) a queen-size bed or larger
(X ) a stocked bar -- We have the makings for the drinks we drink. Is that a stocked bar?

( ) a gym membership
(X ) large exercise equipment at home -- Nobody has clothes trees any more.
( ) your own set of golf clubs
( ) a pool table
( ) a tennis court

( ) a boat
( ) a jet ski
( ) a neighborhood committee membership
( ) a beach house or a vacation house/cabin

( X ) a walk-in closet or pantry
(X ) a yard
( ) a hammock
( ) a personal trainer
(X ) good credit
( ) expensive jewelry
( ) a designer bag that required being on a waiting list to get
( ) at least $100 cash in your possession right now -- I could get it without leaving the house

Do you:
(X ) 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 -- I don't do the regular grocery shopping. I have people to do that (i.e. pilgham).

( X) go on weekend mini-vacations -- One time we did.
( ) send dinners back with every flaw
( ) wear perfume or cologne (not body spray)

( X) have a job but don't need the money -- depends on how you define "need"
( ) stay at home with little financial sacrifice
(X ) pay someone else to cook your meals
(X ) pay someone else to watch your children or walk your dogs -- My child is 15 but yes, she had several nannies (don't get me satarted on Zoe Baird), went to preschool and private school through 3rd grade.

First of all, what the hell is that on your icon?
Second: you've been to the Mall of America? why?
Third: ipod owners are not sheep

I agree Mall of America was not that impressive.

We went with Archos because it had a much larger capacity, larger screen, and makes its own mp3's. Plus iPods really creep me out. Plus $1 a track is too much for something that I'm only renting. But basically, what I said first.

1. That is a handsome rock I picked up in my brother's yard in Arkansas last Thanksgiving.

2. Before my brother moved to Arkansans he lived in a Minneapolis suburb. We visited, we had a 4 year old and thought we would enjoy the rides and Lego store. We did not feel a need to return.

3. ...

You are right; I should have cut myself.

thanks for that=)

Like hell it is.

I think you quibble on this and I would snark at your rock except we do have a family rock. It is not fancy, but does support our non-working tent post and is otherwise of a comfortable weight and size.

We also have a chunk of red quartzite outside the front door.

y'know? i didn't know it was "me me". makes sense. thanks for enlightening me(me).

It's not. The final 'e' is silent. I was attempting a joke.

TVs, non-Ipods, Tivo, booze - Your place is stocked up. I'm definitely staying there next time I'm in the area. Oh wait, you didn't check guest room.

Did I mention the reason we don't watch telly in the bedroom is because the widescreen is in the family room?

We got all the gadgets but when it comes to culture, we ain't got that.

I think your only really pampered if someone buys all that shit for you
not yourself.

Guess I'm not pampered then.
