What's in it for me? OWM's inferiority complex uncovered

What's in it for me?

"I'd much rather read about Jennifer Aniston because she makes me feel hip."

So it's like this. You have somehow persuaded a national newspaper to give you a monthly magazine supplement to play with. Your brief is to tell us what to wear, what to buy, what to like, what to despise.

And how do you do this? You recommend a different magazine, the one you really want to work for. Because unlike you, they know what to wear, what to buy, what to like, what to despise. They're so chic and smart and young. And you're so terribly insecure. If it wasn't for Grazia you'd have to, like, think for yourself.

"The key is succesful women in trauma. But unlike the Daily Mail, Grazia seems like it is on their side. That's really clever."

How remarkably honest. The key is sincerity. If you can fake that you've got it made. If only there were more successful women in trauma, think how much more fun we could have and how much more lovely money we could make.

"Laura Benjamin: 'Lindsey Lohan's rehab is the funniest thing I've ever seen."
Charming. Celebrity Big Brother here we come.

Allotment monthly is a much better read than OWM. There is much more romance for one...and more funny shaped potatoes.
