Rental gifts

Been in bed all day with a cold. I think I caught it from the carrot juice I bought at the fruit stand. I started this new detox kick and stopped eating diary products and white sugar. It lasted a couple of days before I joined the claque for a bagels brunch at H&H.

The rental units ordered three books from Amazon that arrived today. One is called the Millionarie Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley, William D. Danko, the second is The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom and the third is called Feminine Force by Georgette Mosbacher.

I called Mom to thank her. She told me that Millionaire Next Door was Dad's recommendation. Mom started watching Suze Orman on CNBC and felt 9 Steps to Financial Freedom would be a good start. Mom is a diehard Democrat and was entertaining the idea of moving to Canada when Bush won but although Georgette is a hardcore Republican she liked the fact Georgette was a self made woman. She said hoped I would read these books and learn from them. I promised her I would. She was glad I was taking this seriously. She told me if I had any questions to let her know. We made plans for lunch next week.

PP, do you EVER have an actual DATE? With a MAN?
Do you ever WISH you had a man?
I see no evidence of it.
Seems you only get turned on by shopping, ice cream, your own silly snobbery, and VD.
You are passionless, empty, chubby and dateless.
Sad.

I just wasted forty-five minutes of my life reading some of your back entries. I can never get those forty-five minutes back.

You are a pathetic liar. Obviously, you are stealing bits and pieces of peoples' lives from gossip columns, magazines, and "novels" such as GOSSIP GIRL and THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. At the very best, you are a scholarship student at Trinity who feels inadequate and unpopular, so you need to feel "cool" on the internet (good job) by posting this fake life. At worst, you are a chunky ninth-grader from Wyoming who dreams of being Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, or someone else "really cool" like that.

I am a creative writing major and honestly, I have to say that, in my nearly professional opinion, you have the creativity of my Adidas duffel bag. Furthermore, why the hell would you cut out dairy products? It is a proven fact that drinking milk reduces weight around the middle. Trust me: I'm 110 pounds and 5'8. I drink milk like its going out of style. You've also probably tried and failed at Atkins, South Beach, and whatever the hell else. NEWSFLASH: FAD DIETS DO NOT WORK. EATING CORRECTLY AND EXERCISING DOES. Also, if you are really such a "Prada Princess", why are you on Jenny Craig? Shouldn't mum and dad be hiring you private trainers and nutritionists? Or, even more likely, why haven't you joined the "Finger Down Your Throat" club?

I highly doubt that you are yet pursuing higher education, but I have a feeling that once you do (at whatever podunk excuse for a school accepts you with your fourth-grade writing skills), you will be the girl who is rejected from every sorority and subsequently spends all of your time on The Facebook, listing as friends all of the people in high school who hated you in a last-ditch effort to feel popular.

You're not impressing anyone. Try being real.

Sorry you have to put up with such mean people.
I hope your cold gets better, and you find the apartment/condo of your dreams. Your posts aren't boring. Oops, I gotta go, my dog just broke through the screen door on the trailer and he's chasing the park manager through the laundromat.

Well, at least the comments are getting interesting, if nothing else.
I wasn't going to be the first to say it, but I've thought all along that Princess must be butt ugly. Not that it matters or anything, but you can just tell - whether the stories are fake or not - that she is not definitely attractive.

Jesus, Ms. I'm a Creative Writer Pants, she said DIARY products, not dairy- can't you read ? Heheh...
Oh well, I suppose it's always fun when the token person who can't control their temper comes along, and we have definitely been lacking in that category. Those people are always "real".

Ever notice how around 95% of the people who post on this blog call themselves "Anonymous"? It's obvious we are all ashamed to let the world know who it is reading this shit. hahaha

Well, I didn't even realize that I *could post as anything other than anonymous, seeing as how I don't have a blogger account. From here on, I will be formally known as "Other".

I just re-read what I wrote earlier while still drunk from last night...

Damn, I'm funny.

I suppose I could try to justify myself and prove that I am "real", but my "give a damn" is busted.

Christ on a bike, this girl is so much more difficult to take seriously when I am sober. You know who would have a field day with this girl? Tucker Max. Speaking of, if you don't read his message board threads, start here with PradaPrincess's soulmate:

Dear PP,

After reading your blog, I think you missed the point MND (millionaire next door) was trying to make. You percieve the swiss girl wearing gucci as being very wealthy, and yet she tried to stiff you on the bill, this lady obviously suffers from a common condition known as "big hat, little cattle", because she spends all her money on material goods like the gucci clothes, she doesn't have much money left over to party with, and thus tried to stiff you all with the bill, this not an example of her living below her means, this is the classic example of living so above her means, that she has to stiff you all with the bill.

MND would recommend you all get together and play poker all night rather than go clubbing, and dressing nice, doesn't mean you have to wear expesnive big label clothes, you just need to look nice. Many very high power politicians wear JC penny suits, and they look the part. Even though they spent 400 - 500 rather than 4000+.

Of course I hardly expect someone who goes by the name prada princess to understand this, I just hope that you and your friends are not trading your future financial security for name brand clothing today. I am an expert on frugal living, and agree with most of what MND says, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me will@willfagg.com
