spn love and... annoyance

Re-watching the latest ep and it seems like I was laughing so hard, I totally missed the part when the publisher grills the boys on their SPN knowledge. LOVED it!! Question for the f-list -- Sam's score of 174 on the LSAT, is that any good?

SPN has a 4-page spread in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly which is AWESOME. Scans of the article are here (some spoilers so beware). It talks about the fans, the gain in viewership, how Kripke's plan is for 5 years and then he's moving on and same with the boys. All fine and good. But then I read something like this:

Jensen: We don't live at home. We don't sleep in our own beds. Our families aren't here. Our friends aren't here. Our girlfriends aren't here. To do it for another five years, or whatever, I don't know if I could handle it."

Jared: "I enjoy working but what's the point? Do I want to just keep on doing photo shoots and work so I can get more famous so I can do even more photo shoots and work and fly to more places to do more press? I get sick of talking about myself."

Is it just me or does it come across as... self-indulgent whining? Oh, I'm sorry that you're getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to work your butt off for 8-9 months out of the year. I sometimes work 12 hours a day, 6 days a week too but with no overtime pay or time coming (yea, don't ask me why I choose my profession). And Vancouver is a short plane ride to LA. How many British/Australian/Canadian/etc actors have had to re-locate to LA/NYC for work? I don't mean to sound insensitive, I really do get where the boys are coming from but it's just something that really annoys me. It annoyed me when David Duchovny whined about it and it annoys me now. OK, rant over and the word "annoy" has lost its meaning. I'm going to re-watch the ep again.
