"It's better to spend money like there's no tomorrow than to spend tonight like there's no money." -P.J. O'Rourke, Modern Manners
There's always the chance that this book is intended as satire, but I prefer to think of it as my own personal Emily Post's Etiquette. Of course, I was also surprised to find that the characters of Patsy and Edina from Absolutely Fabulous were not actually intended to be role models. Who knew?
