Spoiled, me?

Via Donna, long list. Apparently if you have more than 40, you?re spoiled. I got to 27, so I’m more spoiled than Donna.

One thought to “Spoiled, me?”

  1. The husband has pointed out that technically I’ve got a neighborhood committee membership and that we probably have more than 100 dvds (at least if you count both “ours”, “mine” and “his”). Which brings us to 29. Still less than my age, and my shoe size ;)
