Two Memes in a row

This is a bad habit, doing too many memes and quizzes. Especially ones that aren’t especially interesting or revealing. But they are viral.

Still, they are at least slightly better than those ones with the giant linked graphics.

Do you have:
( ) your own cell phone (God no. I do kind of share one, but… bleh.)
(*) a tv in your bedroom (But it’s not actually plugged in or hooked up.)
(*) an ipod (But it was free!)
( ) a photo printer (My mom does, though.)
( ) your own phone line (Bleh!)
(*) TiVo or a generic digital video recorder (And would not give it up at this point.)
(*) high-speed internet access (aka not dialup) (See above.)
( ) a surround sound system in bedroom (God no. As I was just telling someone at work… I’m not a sound person. It doesn’t do anything for me.)
(*) dvd player in bedroom (Yes, though it’s as unhooked as the television.)
(*) at least a hundred DVDs (Easily)
(*) a childfree bathroom (By default… there’s no children here.)
( ) your own in-house office (Does the sofa count?)
( ) a pool (The condo complex has 2, but we don’t have one of our own. My mom has one tho.)
( ) a guest house (yeah right)
( ) a game room (Does the basement count? Maybe.)
(*) a queen-size bed or larger (How is this spoiled and not normal?)
( ) a stocked bar (ha ha ha)
(*) a working dishwasher (I guess this is a luxury, though since I grew up in the midst of middle-class poverty (where you have a decent house but the mortgage payments kill you and make it hard to do much else) and we always had one, I think of it as normal.)
( ) an icemaker (…though I’d like one.)
(*) a working washing machine and dryer (NOT A LUXURY)
( ) more than 20 pairs of shoes (probably not, but it might be a close call. All, however, from Payless.)
( ) at least ten things from a designer store (ha ha ha. Does Best Buy count?)
( ) expensive sunglasses (I don’t do sunglasses. Though I’m weakening on this score.)
( ) framed authentic art (Yes and no. ’tis fanart…)
( ) Egyptian cotton sheets or towels (Nope.)
(*) a multi-speed bike (Yeah. But it was free. Mom won it.)
( ) a gym membership (My mom and my brothers have one though…)
( ) large exercise equipment at home (I’d like a treadmill, but we can’t afford one.)
( ) your own set of golf clubs (Hell no.)
( ) a pool table (No space for that.)
( ) a tennis court (The condo complex has some. Who has a big enough yard for something like this?)
(*) local access to a lake, large pond, or the sea (Sort of? The ocean is within driving distance, but hardly ‘local’.)
( ) your own pair of skis (Not a chance. J2 has a snowboard.)
( ) enough camping gear for a weekend trip in an isolated area (Heck no. Camping = not for me.)
( ) a boat (Boating = not for me.)
( ) a jet ski (This could be fun, but expensive.)
( ) a neighborhood committee membership (I guess technically we’re members of the condo association… but I don’t think that counts. We have no choice.)
( ) a beach house or a vacation house/cabin (I wish.)
(*) wealthy family members (None where I stand to inherit anything, sadly.)
(*) two or more family cars (A necessity.)
( ) a walk-in closet or pantry (What I wouldn’t give…)
( ) a yard (Not in a condo.)
( ) a hammock (Would sort of need a yard.)
( ) a personal trainer (Ha ha ha.)
(*) good credit (NOT A LUXURY)
( ) expensive jewelry (I prefer my toys to be entertaining.)
( ) a designer bag that required being on a waiting list to get (See above.)
( ) at least $100 cash in your possession right now (Please. It’s a rare day when I have more than $1 cash on me.)
(*) more than two credit cards bearing your name (not counting gas cards or debit cards) (Well, yes. But I don’t have a gas card.)
( ) a stock portfolio (I have an IRA, but I don’t think that counts.)
(*) a passport (How is that anything other than proof you’re not some kind of criminal?)
( ) a horse (Allergic.)
( ) a trust fund (either for you or created by you) (If only.)
( ) private medical insurance (What is this asking? Health insurance? Yes.)
( ) a college degree, but no student loans (Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.)

Do you:
( ) shop for non-needed items for yourself (like clothes, jewelry, electronics) at least once a week (Certainly not.)
( ) do your regular grocery shopping at high-end or specialty stores (When we lived in MN our grocery store was quite posh. But the only nearby alternative was dirty, like Market Basket. I couldn’t deal with it.)
( ) pay someone else to clean your house, do dishes, or launder your clothes (not counting dry-cleaning) (Uh, no. But then, I don’t much clean it either.)
( ) go on weekend mini-vacations (I guess? Not very often though.)
(*) send dinners back with every flaw (If it’s a major flaw? Hell yes. I’m paying for it.)
( ) wear perfume or cologne (not body spray) (Definitely not. And how is body spray not the same thing?)
( ) regularly get your hair styled or nails done in a salon (Supercuts ahoy.)
( ) have a job but don’t need the money OR (Not so much.)
( ) stay at home with little financial sacrifice (Not so much there, either.)
( ) pay someone else to cook your meals (But cooking is fun.)
( ) pay someone else to watch your children or walk your dogs (Since I have neither, this would be a pretty stupid thing to spend money on.)
( ) regularly pay someone else to drive you (I wonder if public transportation counts here.)
( ) expect a gift after you fight with your partner (Not that I would turn one down.)

Are you:
( ) an only child
( ) married/partnered to a weathly person
( ) baffled/surprised when you don’t get your way (Baffled or surprised? No. Annoyed? Heck yeah.)

Have you:
(*) been on a cruise (And going on another one in a couple of weeks!)
(*) traveled out of the country (Canda’s pretty close.)
(*) met a celebrity (At least people I consider celebrities.)
(*) been to the carribean (Yep. Though I didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have.)
(*) been to europe (If England counts.)
( ) been to hawaii (Someday…)
(*) been to new york (Closer than Canada. Though if they mean the city here they should be more specific.)
( ) eaten at the space needle in seattle (Never been. Been to the CN Tower though.)
(*) been to mall of america (What? We lived in Minneapolis. It was our mall.)
( ) been on the eiffel tower in paris (Someday…)
(*) been on the statue of liberty in new york (Walked up it.)
(*) moved more than three times because you wanted to (I love looking for new places to live. I’m a real estate junkie.)
( ) dined with local political figures (Probably have done this actually.)
(*) been to both the Atlantic coast and the Pacific coast (in any country) (Not recently. Pacific, anyway.)

Did you:
( ) go to another country for your honeymoon (Did we go on a honeymoon is the question.)
( ) hire a professional photographer for your wedding or party (Hardly.)
(*) take riding or swimming lessons as a child (Swimming. I don’t really consider that a luxury, but a necessary skill.)
( ) attend private school (Not for lack of desire, but lack of cash. Though I did go to a private college.)
( ) have a Sweet 16 birthday party thrown for you (Hardly. I haven’t had a real birthday party since I was 10.)
