A MUST HAVE!

Well, I love funny books about lifestyle and this one is an old favorite that has been updated. The first book was "Princess Margaret will never be a Kappa Kappa Gamma". Being a Kappa in college, makes this book extra amusing. I love the quotes and the personality descriptions of women based on the silver pattern they select. A few priceless quotes:
SOUTHERN BELL RULES: " Never date your sorority sister's ex-husband until at least three years after the divorce. You might need her to write your daughter a Kappa Kappa Gamma recommendation one day. Just remember, it's a lot easier to find a new man than it is to get your daughter into Kappa."
SILVER PATTERNS: "Francis I: The belle who chooses Francis I is the girl who wants it all. There are 28 pieces of fruit just on the knife handle. It's showy and opulent and so is she. Francis I girls want a husband, children, a place on the board of the Junior League, and a full-time career."....
Here is a quote about the book:
"What The Official Preppy Handbook did for the madras-and-penny-loafer set "A Southern Belle Primer" does for the indestructible ladies from below the Mason–Dixon Line, in an uproarious guide to navigating a society that continues to fascinate people the world over."
Hope you find this book as amusing as I do.

Pi Phi here! And the book is right. Princess Margaret most definitely could have never been a Kappa because I had her on a flight once and she wore these hidious houseshoes inflight and put both feet up on the seatback in front of her. Extremely unladylike! I couldn't believe my eyes.

Too funny about Princess Margaret...Also..I have two words for you..Mammoth Duo! Thank you for your thoughts.

Do you mean Monmouth Duo?! (not sure, but that's how I remembered it)... LOVED those - but we secretly hated the Kappas because they were our main competition in Rush. : )

P.S. I should get out my Monmouth Duo party pics and post them. Ahhhh, to be young again....

You are right! This is why I almost did not pass the pledge test. I think I was thinking of the Woolly Mammoth or the ice age!
Since it was a pretty chilling party each year with the Pi Phi.
