Narcissit? Who me?

Wednesday, May 5, 2010


Yesterday I received my highly anticipated book, "Dead End Gene Pool" from and have been steadily devouring it ever since I ripped it from it's neat little cardboard box. Basically the book is a memoir of a little girl, a descendant of Cornelius Vanderbilt, all all the excess and oddity that took place in a house of old money. It is absolutely fascinating, for me anyways. Because as I was driving to work today I realized that ever since I could remember I have had an obsession with the rich. Watching Cinderella I remember wanting to see the rest of the castle. Watching All My Children, I always wanted Erica Kane to suck it up, "So what if you're husband is your long lost brother. You're still rich!" Maybe it has something to do with being born in the eighties and watching so many movies that included shopping montages, but I am full out obsessed with money. I wish I had money, I plan what I would spend money on, I plot the destruction of my enemies through money. There is not a day that goes by where I don't wish for money. Maybe this is how everyone else feels, but I am sure that everyone didn't wake up on Saturday morning and rush to the living at 6 o'clock to watch America's Castles on A&E.

Seriously, this post would be much better if I wasn't thinking back to those mornings and the polished wood banisters and imported Louis XIV furniture.
