Living Lean with the Self-Absorbed

Frugality is certainly a laudable virtue, and for many a necessity in a tight economy, but it would be difficult to parody this:

"So begins my Year of Living Frugally. And you know what? I've discovered that frugality can be fun. It's a lost art that has not gotten the respect it deserves in our mindless pursuit of luxury of the last few decades. I've embraced the Zen-like satisfaction that comes with living like a Yankee: making do, using up or doing without....Frugality has resurrected an inner resourcefulness rendered dormant when the cash flowed."
