Ugh, my eyes! Did the original have such tiny print? And the typos? Dear me.

Parts of this were a delight, others just wearing. A chapter on funeral etiquette without much humor or irony is really a downer. It went on a bit long, without updating some of my favorite parts of the original - specifically, preppiest bars and universities.

I did appreciate the takedown of faux-preppy Gossip Girl. I mean, I watch it, but still.
