Economic mantras for fun and deficit

I have been doing my bit for the ailing British economy in preparation for my trip to America (lol), spending what seems like really unneccessary amounts on really neccessary items. Shoes, socks, shirts, swiss army knives – anything goes, so long as it begins with an S.

But I’m alright. I’ve come up with a mantra. Oh yes.

It’s okay, I’m saving on accommodation.

Because of the fine people tolerating my waifish European presence, I am saving a hefty chunk-o-cash that would otherwise be going on hotels, motels, campsites, etc. This is great! Takes a vast amount of my potential expenses out of the picture, and leaves me with more money to enjoy myself doing whatever it is I’ll end up doing over there. But there’s a pitfall here, and I can see it coming. It’ll start off small: I can grab another doughnut, it’s okay, I’m saving on accommodation. You know? I can totally stretch to that novelty cowboy hat, I’m saving on accommodation. I can afford that hot-air balloon trip. I can eat out at the Ritz. I can absolutely buy that motorcycle.

Before you know it, I’ll be standing on rain-lashed rock with crappy weather effects all around, whilst overseeing the airlifting of a gigantic mutant squid to a top-secret governmental research facility in Nevada.

But that’s okay.

Because I’ll be saving on accommodation.

    Three hookers and ten grams of blow? It’s ok, I’m saving on accommodation.

    It’s never ok to buy that novelty cowboy hat.

    The gigantic mutant squid was supposed to be a surprise, dammit! I guess I’ll have to contact one of the other top-secret governmental research facilities here in NV and see what they’ve got on the cheap.
