No! Not another Becky Bloomwood…

12 11 2008

I have several books in queue and last night I decided to start Sophie Kinsella‘s Confessions of a Shopaholic.  All I knew was Becky is a shopaholic, that’s all.  After reading the back cover, I realized I made a gross mistake in my About page.  I wanted to jump out of my bed to immediately make the necessary corrections (but it was already past midnight, I didn’t have that energy anymore).

Nooooooooooo!!!  That isn’t me.  No way!!! I’m sure that my site’s visitors had read it.  I wrote that I’m working to be a renewed Becky Bloomwood.  That statement is not applicable at all.  First, I’m not comparable with Becky in terms of shopaholism.   I shy away from very expensive and trendy boutiques.  I’m quite practical when it comes to shopping, although, of course, I try to treat myself with branded stuff at times.  Next , I never borrowed an amount to get myself one ever-desired item.  Third, I never got any invitation letter from my bank to discuss an overdraft issue coz I never had such problem.

… Becky’s been chased by dismal letters from Visa and the Endwich Bank – letters with large red sums she can’t bear to read…   And so on and so forth.  That will never happen to me.  I’ve never reached that point where I have uncontrollable spendings. 

I hope I made myself understood for the change in that particular page.  The list of differences is quite long…  but I don’t need to discuss further.

As for Becky, I still believe her story will have a positive ending.   Am I right?
