This recession is SO BORING. I’m over it. Saving money is, by definition, boring. All the depressing news on television is boring. Obsessively checking my bank statement is boring. And I am sick and tired of all the marketing and advertising being geared towards how much money I’ll save if I elect to dish out a few of the benjamins I am supposed to be hoarding at their place of business. Boring! One of my All Time Favorite Things is advertisements that encourage gross excess and I can’t wait for it’s return. They say this recession will change the way America views money from here on out, but I can tell you this right now: as soon as I get an extra few bucks in my pocket, I am booking an entire day at a spa and heading straight to Neiman’s, my friend.
