Who do you pay to cook your meals? I was thinking of a personal chef thing.

I figured that we eat out more often than we eat in, and we have to be paying someone to cook those meals, right? :) That's how I read it.

And what the hell does your own phone line mean anyway? Am I 12?

I was wondering the same thing! I mean...Trav and I DO have a phone line...and it is our own...but that's not what they mean, right?

(Guess this meme was generated for the teens on LJ. But wait...it talks about weddings, so...gah. I don't know.)

I actually do have my own. Because we both work from home, we have our 'main' home line, my office has a dedicated line, and Scott's office has a line of its own. We both also have cell phones. :)

Counting things that Vogon has or pays for that I use, I scored 17.

(I have my own cell phone, high-speed internet access, a childfree bathroom, a queen-size bed or larger, a working dishwasher, an icemaker, a working washer and dryer, framed original art [mostly mine, some I bartered for], Egyptian cotton sheets or towels, a multi-speed bike, and a walk-in closet. I wear perfume or cologne, stay at home with little financial sacrifice [childcare would zero out what I'd make], have dined with local political figures, been to both the Atlantic coast and the Pacific coast, took riding or swimming lessons as a child [at the YMCA] and attended private school [for three years because the small-town public school couldn't cope with me].)

What's a Sweet 16 birthday party? I thought that was a college basketball thing.

You are way more natural than I am on many fronts than I am. You take the effort to do thing right, to put work and pride into things, and to take time to save money. You are much better off in the long run :)

I scored higher because I take advantage of WAY too many convenience items and services, and also because we are a high-tech family.

A Sweet 16 party seems to be a thing done only in the deep south or in certain circles in other places. It's a throwback to another time, where 16 meant you were a 'woman', so a big deal was made. It's an elaborate party, similar to the 15th (Quinceniera) in certain Hispanic cultures or the 13th in Jewish culture (Bar and Bat Mitzvah).
