This is taken from Kimli, whose site I found on Michelle's blog...
A score 40 or higher indicates that you are spoiled.

(1) your own cell phone

( ) your own phone line
(4) TiVo or a generic digital video recorder (free trial from Future Shop/Rogers 'cause we bought ourselves an obscenely large lcd t.v.)
(5) high-speed internet access

In other news, I finished Michael's Man Sweater last Friday. I am happy to report that he has worn it every day since!

I also knitted myself the hooded capelet from Loop-d-Loop on that Saturday. Pics to come later on this week.


  • That is awesome Eden! I need to come over and hang out more ;)

    When do we get to see pics of Mike's Manly sweater?

  • Thanks!

    I completely agree; you should come over more! We need to have more people over!

    I thought I'd get pictures last night but we didn't go home before heading out to the pub, and I want to take them in the sunshine. Tomorrow I guess...
