Statement to the Press Regarding Brunch Bird and the No-Spending Plan

"Thank you for coming. I'll keep this brief. I'm happy to announce that Brunch Bird and Shopping, after a four-month trial separation, have reconciled. Many of you have already seen the photographs taken Sunday in Georgetown. While this does signal the end of her at-times contentious relationship with Determined Resolve, I can say that that split was amicable. Ms. Bird and Shopping request that you respect their privacy during this special time. Thank you. No questions."

I will cease to ask questions under the condition that you tell me what you bought me.

I have tried to follow your lead, though I was much less successful. Especially this weekend, when an hour in The Village led to purchases at Juicy Couture and James Perse. Couldn't be helped.

Now that Determined Resolve is single, I need to hook up with her. I need to stop buying books, at least long enough for me to catch up and finish reading the books I've already purchased.

Ugh...I have the same problem, vvk. Stacks and stacks of unread books and just keep bringing more and more home, at 15 bucks a pop. My mom was once like, "they're not orphans, you know..."

The fact that you made it as far as you did was outstanding. Tis true that I occasionally thought of you while browsing items that, it turns out, I didn't really *need*.

And whatever you paid for that twisty pink and yellow balloon arrangement, it was worth it.

I-66- Didn't buy you anything, although I did buy one of those "I Heart I-66" shirts that all the kids are wearing these days.

K- Some of my restraint actually included putting back a James Perse T!

Etc (and HKB in this respect)- No, that's a paparazzi photo of Julianne Moore shopping. But as I could be her 29-year-old sister I figured it worked perfectly. I mean really, except for the age we're twinsies. Oh, and except for the stunning physical beauty.

VVK- It was fun meeting you at HH. Stay strong. I'm still trying to avoid shopping in specific areas: clothes (seriously, I think I got a lot of it out of my system Sunday), housewares, and books. Good luck to you!

Alej- That's my problem with the clothes. They're just so adorable. What am I gonna' do, leave 'em sitting on the rack? Who knows what kind of person they could end up going home with. I shudder to think.

HKB- Thank you! And if I thought I had any smidge of grounds for smug moral superiority I'd write a post about how the experiment really taught me a lot, and I'm definitely changing the way I approach consumerism, blah blah blah. I mean I put back way more during that trip than I ever would have before. But really I'll just say: Me + Deliberate Precision Shopping = Fun and Useful.

Except for the stunning physical beauty? Damn, Bird, for a "sister" you're really hard on Julianne Moore.

Is it true that when your Visa was declined, you called the sales lady a "pig" and something less than a human being?

Only after I threw my cell phone at her Phil.

Julianne Moore is hot

She got the looks. I got the ability to pass on the "The Forgotten" script.
